Rabat leads Warm-Up session at Misano

It was Tito Rabat who topped the timesheets to lead the pre-race Moto2™ Warm-Up at Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli. The Tuenti HP 40 rider led fellow front-row starter Takaaki Nakagami and championship leader Scott Redding, while pole-sitter Pol Espargaro ended the morning in fourth position.

Rabat’s leading time was 1’38.113, half a second down on pole as the track surface is yet to warm up on the Adriatic coast of Italy. He was a quarter of a second up on Nakagami (Italtrans Racing Team), while Redding (Marc VDS Racing Team) made the top three before starting from fifth in this afternoon’s race. Espargaro may have been four tenths off in the Warm-Up, but will start from his fourth pole of 2013 - to date, his three wins this season have all come from pole. Thitipong Warokorn was the only faller, losing control of his Thai Honda PTT Gresini Moto2 bike at Quercia corner.

The 26-lap Moto2™ race will begin at 12:20pm local time (GMT +2).
