A guide to the #AragonGP Moto2™ race

All of the information you need to impress your friends ahead of the Gran Premio Movistar de Aragón.

The 21-lap race at MotorLand Aragon kicks off at 12:20 local time:

  • Tito Rabat is on pole for the second time this year – his other was at Jerez back in May. The reigning Moto2™ world champion has won just a single race (at Mugello earlier this year) in the last eighteen races since he won at Misano last year.

  • This is the fifteenth pole for Rabat in the Moto2™ class, giving him the record for most Moto2™ pole positions, with a single pole more than both Marc Marquez and Pol Espargaro.

  • Alex Rins, who won the Moto3™ race at Aragon two years ago, is on the front row for the fifth successive race.

  • World championship leader Johann Zarco is in third place on the grid. Zarco will be attempting to finish on the podium for the thirteenth successive race.

  • Sam Lowes, starting from fourth place on the grid, will be aiming to get back on the podium for the first time since he finished third at the Dutch TT.

  • Takaaki Nakagami starts the race from fifth place on the grid – his best qualifying result since the French Grand Prix. Nakagami finished third two weeks ago at Misano, which was his first podium finish for two years.

  • Taking the final place on the second row is Alex Marquez – his best qualifying result so far in his rookie season in the Moto2™ class.
