Barth takes pole for BMW Boxer Cup

Markus Barth took pole position for the BMW Boxer Cup this evening at Sachsenring. The German rider, third in the championship standings after five races, took top spot by just one tenth of a second from Randy Mamola.

Third place on the grid went to Stéphane Mertens, who leads the championship despite being level on 66 points with Thomas Hinterreiter, fifth fastest today behind German compatriot Jurgen Fuchs. Barth was quickest in the first session and maintained his advantage in the second session despite some close efforts from his rivals.

This is round six of eight for the BMW Boxer Cup and is the fourth time this year that it coincides with the MotoGP World Championship.
