De Puniet completes recovery

Randy De Puniet showed signs of a return to form after his injury problems in recent weeks, lapping 0.312 seconds quicker than his nearest challenger to take a comfortable provisional pole for the 250cc race. Roberto Rolfo was the first of two Hondas on the front row, qualifying second fastest as factory colleague Sebastian Porto took an encouraging fourth. Franco Battaini levelled out the balance for Aprilia, who are looking for their thirteenth consecutive win in the quarter-litre class, with the third fastest time. Championship leader Manuel Poggiali provisionally holds the front slot on the second row after qualifying fifth fastest ahead of Sylvain Guintoli, Naoki Matsudo and Fonsi Nieto. Toni Elias and Anthony West complete the top ten.
