 Lowes takes second Moto2™ pole of the season

Speed Up Racing’s Sam Lowes claimed his second pole position of the 2015 Moto2™ World Championship season at the Gran Premio d’Italia TIM.

Lowes remounted after an early crash to set a 1’51.214, the fastest ever Moto2™ time around the 5.2km circuit, smashing Pol Espargaro’s pole record (1’52.369) from 2012 in the process.

Technomag Racing Interwetten’s Dominique Aegerter (+0.342s) pulled off the surprise of the day to finish in second, ahead of reigning Moto2™ World Champion Tito Rabat (+0.360s) on the Estrella Galicia 0,0 marc VDS Machine.

Derendinger Racing Interwetten’s Thomas Luthi (+0.365s) will start from the front of the second row, with Paginas Amarillas HP40’s Luis Salom (+0.606s) in fifth and Ajo Motorsport’s Johann Zarco (+0.626s) in sixth.

Simone Corsi (Athina Forward Racing), Xavier Simeon (Federal Oil Gresini Moto2), Alex Rins (Paginas Amarillas HP40) and Axel Pons (AGR Team) complete the top ten, with less than a second separating the top fourteen riders.
