Poggiali crashes in first 125cc qualifying session

Poggiali crashes in first 125cc qualifying session

Manuel Poggiali has crashed out of the first 125cc qualifying session with 20 minutes remaining. The Italian lost control of his machine coming out of the final turn onto the start-finish straight. The tricky downhill right-hander comes after the chicane and the riders are usually hard on the gas to get a good run over the finish line. Poggiali left his broken Gilera and ran back to the pits to continue on his spare machine. He had set the 15th best time before the incident.
