Toba on top in Moto3™ Misano warm-up

Honda Team Asia rider has quite the job on his hands from row eight of the grid later today

Honda Team Asia’s Kaito Toba kicked off race day at the Grand Prix Octo di San Marino e della Riviera di Rimini by ending Moto3™ warm-up as fastest ahead of Albert Arenas (Sama Qatar Angel Nieto Team) and World Championship leader Lorenzo Dalla Porta (Leopard Racing).

The Japanese rider just over a hundredth of a second clear of the Spaniard in second as the top 24 riders were covered by under nine-tenths of a second, strongly suggesting that we look like being treated to another lightweight class classic at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli this afternoon.

VNE Snipers’ Tony Arbolino ended the session fourth before Petronas Sprinta Racing’s Ayumu Sasaki completed the top five. SIC58 Squadra Corse’s Tatsuki Suzuki will start from a debut pole position later and ended warm-up 19th fastest. The Moto3™ race roars into life at 11:00 local time (GMT+2) and mark our words: it is not to be missed!
