Lorenzo leads the way in 250cc

Jorge Lorenzo continues his quest to regain a stronghold on the 250cc category, earning provisional pole at Donington Park today. The Spaniard was over half a second faster than second placed rider Alex de Angelis, carrying on from his morning practice lead.

Lorenzo's returning team-mate Hector Barbera showed no ill effects of the hand injury which has kept him out of the previous two races, putting himself in third ahead of World Championship leader Andrea Dovizioso. Hiroshi Aoyama was the only other rider to go round in under 1'33, followed by Roberto Locatelli, Marco Simoncelli, Shuhei Aoyama, Jakub Smrz and Yuki Takahashi.
