The lap times continued to tumble in the Moto3 class at Le Mans today and after some record laps yesterday there was a new pole record of 1’42.491, set by Efrén Vázquez. The Spaniard overthrew Jack Miller with a late effort to take pole position in the final five minutes after the Australian had dominated for much of the session.

Tomorrow’s race could well see some more 1’42 laps, with nine riders dipping under the 1’43 barrier today, should the good weather hold out.

MAPFRE Aspar rider Juanfran Guevara made three stops during qualifying as he chipped away at his best lap from this morning to eventually go a thousandth of a second faster.

Having improved the front-end set-up of his bike in the opening session the Spanish youngster lost some feel due to the higher track temperatures in the afternoon and qualified on the sixth row in eighteenth position.

18th Juanfran Guevara 1.43.644 (18 laps):
“We set a good pace this morning on used tyres but maybe made a mistake with the first tyres we ran this afternoon, which were the same as this morning. With the higher temperatures the track had more grip and that pushed the front harder, which made it difficult to turn. At the end of the session we managed to improve the lap time slightly but it was a struggle and I think we were affected a lot by the change in conditions. Tomorrow we will have to take a step backwards to the set-up that gave me so much confidence with the front yesterday. Even though we are some way back if we make a good start we can fight for a good result. The first corner is always tricky here so we will have to be on our game.”
