Porto clocks fastest lap ahead of Pedrosa

Argentinean Aprilia Aspar rider Sebastian Porto clocked the fastest lap today at Le Mans in the first 250cc free practice session ahead of reigning World Champion Dani Pedrosa, who is aiming to make a comeback this weekend after a tough start to the season.

Italian rider Alex de Angelis (MS Aprilia Italia Corse) was on form for the first session and managed to lap third fastest ahead of Spanish Fortuna Honda rider Jorge Lorenzo.

Back-to-back Grand Prix winner Casey Stoner (Carrera Sunglasses – LCR) only managed fifth fastest in the session. After two consecutive wins, at Estoril and Shanghai, the Australian will be out to make the hat-trick on Sunday.

Frenchman Randy de Puniet (Aprilia Aspar) finished sixth fastest ahead of current 250 Championship leader Andrea Dovizioso.
