Gabor Talmacsi rounded off the warmup activity at the Estoril circuit with a late top spot onboard his Bancaja Aspar Aprilia, putting in a 1´52.232 lap of the drying track. The reigning World Champion is chasing his first podium of the season in Portugal, and will have another chance for the rostrum in today´s 125cc race.

Onde 2000 KTM´s Raffaele de Rosa was over half a second down on the Hungarian´s time, ahead of Joan Olive, Esteve Rabat and Bradley Smith. The latter is off pole position for the first time this season, as he looks to repeat his podium form from Jerez onboard his Polaris World Aprilia.

Scott Redding, Sandro Cortese, Alexis Masbou, Danny Webb and poleman Simone Corsi complete the top ten, whilst a sore Mike di Meglio assessed his condition in the warmup after a nasty crash yesterday. The Frenchamn suffered a contusion to his right testicle in a clash with Ivan Maestro, but appears to be fit to start from second row.
