Australian GP: Practice

This week's Re-Live section of the MotoGP Channel takes you to one of the most beautiful and spectacular circuits in the MotoGP World Championship, Phillip Island. The track last year played host to one of the final races of the season, the Australian GP. Tomorrow we offer you some of the best moments from all three races, but today all the best moments from qualifying are presented for your viewing pleasure.

Nicky Hayden earned the third pole of his career, qualifying ahead of the session's previous fastest rider Valentino Rossi by a tenth. Sete Gibernau completed the front row.

Casey Stoner was looking for a victory in Australia to keep his title hopes alive, and took pole at his home circuit. Jorge Lorenzo, Alex de Angelis and Sebas Porto would all start behind him.

Thomas Lüthi would start from the front for the fourth time in the season, ahead of Mattia Pasini, Gabor Talmacsi and Marco Simoncelli.
