Kallio snatches pole position

Red Bull KTM riders Mika Kallio and Gabor Talmacsi have taken the first two spots of the 125cc grid after an impressive late charge in the final qualifying session that demoted Thursday's pacesetter Mattia Pasini to third.

It's the second time this year that Kallio and Talmacsi have secured a qualifying 1-2 for KTM and this time the two riders were only separated by 0.060s. Third placed Mattia Pasini only improved on his provisional pole time in the closing stages of the session, demoting fellow Aprilia rider Marco Simoncelli to fourth.

Swiss youngster Thomas Lüthi will head the second row, having posted the fifth fastest lap ahead of Sergio Gadea and Manuel Poggiali. Frenchman Alexis Masbou will complete the second row.

Tomorrow's 125cc race will start at 15.30, after the MotoGP race.
