Talmacsi takes pole for 125cc showdown

In today's final 125cc qualifying practice, Gabor Talmacsi took the first pole position of the 2007 season.

In today's final 125cc qualifying practice, Gabor Talmacsi took the first pole position of the 2007 season. The Hungarian's hot lap came right at the end of the session, a time of 2'06.011 putting him ahead of Aspar team-mate Hector Faubel by less than one tenth of a second. Mattia Pasini, last year also a member of the Aspar team and now riding for Polaris World, was also close to the pole-setting lap, and starts from a front row completed by Derbi rider Lukas Pesek.

Raffaele de Rosa, Sergio Gadea, Tomoyoshi Koyama and Esteve Rabat completed the top eight, with the latter qualifying faster than new team-mate Bradley Smith on his first attempt. The Briton himself had an impressive session, knocking a second off his first qualifying time to qualify ninth in a top ten rounded off by Simone Corsi.
