Pole-sitter Acosta sets pace in Moto2™ Warm Up

The rookie woke up as the newest intermediate class pole-sitter, then went fastest again in the last session before the Le Mans race

Red Bull KTM Ajo’s Pedro Acosta has gone quickest in the Warm Up session before his first ever pole position start in the Moto2™ class, at the SHARK Grand Prix de France. After topping Q2 at Le Mans, the Spaniard set a 1:36.343 to top the Sunday morning session for the intermediate class. Just like in qualifying, Jake Dixon (Inde GASGAS Aspar Team) was second-quickest and Augusto Fernandez (Red Bull KTM Ajo) third, on a 1:36.627 and 1:36.902 respectively.

Sam Lowes (Elf Marc VDS Racing Team) continued the theme, fourth in Q2 then fourth in the Warm Up, with a 1:36.975. The Briton was declared fit after being reviewed this morning following his nasty highside the afternoon prior. World Championship leader Celestino Vietti (Mooney VR46 Racing Team) was seventh with a 1:37.080, as he prepares to start 19th later in the day.
