Randy De Puniet returns to form at Brno

Randy De Puniet sent out a reminder of his title potential with provisional pole position in the 250cc class. The Frenchman has dropped vital places in the championship after picking up just 24 points from the last three races but he remains just 24 points behind the leader Manuel Poggiali and was back on form today as he pipped Roberto Rolfo to pole position. Rolfo has started the weekend well, buoyed by the confidence of his maiden career win at the Sachsenring in the last round and a good showing in this race last year when he crashed out of a fight for victory with Marco Melandri on the penultimate lap.

Poggiali qualified on the outside of the provisional front row in fourth place behind Franco Battaini, with Spanish pair Fonsi Nieto and Toni Elias heading up the second row ahead of Sebastian Porto and Sylvain Guintoli. Czech wildcard rider Radomil Rous was the surprise package of the session, qualifying in thirteenth place on his Aprilia.
