Saturday’s intermediate class contest at Assen will see Esteve Rabat at the front of the grid, with Dominique Aegerter and Sam Lowes lining up just behind him.

Rabat (Marc VDS Racing Team) produced a 1’37.311 lap late in the session to secure his sixth pole of the year on his Kalex ride.

Suter-equipped Aegerter (Technomag carXpert) held provisional pole but eventually missed out by 0.151s and the Swiss rider will be joined on the front row by rookie Lowes (Speed Up) who knows this track well and lapped within 0.363s of pole.

Row two will comprise three Kalex riders, Mika Kallio (Marc VDS Racing Team), Takaaki Nakagami (IDEMITSU Honda Team Asia) and Simone Corsi (NGM Forward Racing).

The third row will see Frenchman Johann Zarco (AirAsia Caterham Moto Racing) line up ahead of Spaniards Maverick Viñales (Pons HP 40) and Ricard Cardus (Tech 3), whilst Xavier Simeon (Federal Oil Gresini Moto2) qualified tenth.  

There were crashes for Jordi Torres (Mapfre Aspar Team Moto2), Jonas Folger (AGR Team) and Robin Mulhauser (Technomag carXpert), though none of them were badly hurt.
