2013 Assen Moto2 QP Result: Pole Earned Ahead Of Tight Field

Summary and results of Moto2 qualifying:

An amazingly tight margin of 0.990 covered the top twenty riders at the conclusion of the Moto2 qualifying session for the Dutch TT at Assen. The form rider of the race weekend Pol Espargaro clinched his second consecutive pole with the benchmark time of 1:38.691. He finished a tenth of a second ahead of the impressive Johann Zarco, who achieved his best ever Moto2 qualifying result. Championship leader Scott Redding finished third and completes the front row. 

Tito Rabat recovered well from a heavy mid-session crash to qualify in fourth place ahead of Xavier Simeon and Ant West. West continued his good showing at the scene of his one and only grand prix win, the Australian snatching the final second row grid slot. Fellow Speed Up rider Mattia Pasini posted the seventh fastest lap time in front of Mika Kallio and Mike DiMeglio who rounds out row three for Saturday's race.
