Tito Rabat second on Indianapolis grid

 In Moto2, News


Tito Rabat – and teammate Mika Kallio – dominated today’s Moto2 qualifying session at the revamped Indianapolis Motor Speedway, as the Marc VDS Racing Team celebrated an eighth pole position in 10 races.

Only Rabat could lap within 0.5s of Kallio’s blistering speed, though his quest to claim a seventh pole position of the campaign ended in painful fashion with less than 10 minutes of qualifying remaining.

The Spaniard, who holds a 19-point advantage over Kallio heading into tomorrow’s 25-lap race, fell heavily but unhurt at turn 8. He was still able to comfortably secure a vital front row start courtesy of an earlier lap of 1.37.056.

“It was not an easy qualifying session, so I am happy to be starting on the front row with Mika. I have been happy with the performance of the tyres on the new asphalt all weekend, but a bit like in Assen, the tyres didn’t work as well as we anticipated in qualifying. I am confident we can find a solution but the big crash at the end finished my session. Thankfully I am not injured and I am confident I can challenge for the win tomorrow.”
