Barberá the top man in 250cc Friday run

Spaniard Héctor Barberá (Pepe World Team) was the top performing 250cc rider at the Misano circuit on Friday.

Héctor Barberá (Pepe World Team) topped the 250cc timesheet by a considerable margin as the Friday action concluded at the Gran Premio Cinzano di San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini.

The MotoGP-bound Spanish rider produced a best time of 1’39.212 on the 24th of his 28 laps, with only Mattia Pasini (Team Toth Aprilia) able to get within half a second of Barberá’s pace.

The category’s leading two riders Hiroshi Aoyama (Scot Racing Team) and Álvaro Bautista (Mapfre Aspar Team) both marked their best times with their final laps, the pair of them going round just under a second slower than Barberá.

Bautista’s team-mate Mike di Meglio was fifth fastest, ahead of seventh placed World Champion Marco Simoncelli (Metis Gilera).

The top ten also comprised the names of Héctor Faubel (Valencia CF - Honda SAG), Alex Debon (Aeropuerto-Castello-Blusens), Jules Cluzel (Matteoni Racing) and Ratthapark Wilairot (Thai Honda PTT SAG).
