2014 Brno Moto2 Qualifying Result: And A New Lap Record

Qualifying was dry, but cool, with 17º air temperature.

Tito Rabat on the Marc VDS bike deposed Thomas Luthi from pole position at the halfway mark and didn't look back, improving his own pole position time two more times until he set a new lap record of 2'01.911 at the chequered flag. Interwetten's Thomas Luthi kept himself in the mix throughout the session, ending it in second position, joined on the front row by Sandro Cortese on the Dynavold Intact GP bike.

Sam Lowes was on a potential pole-beating lap with the chequered flag out, but he met traffic and missed out on the front row by fifteen thousandths of a second on his Speed Up bike. NGM Forward Racing's Simone Corsi took fifth spot with Marc VDS's Mika Kallio settling for sixth after crashing gracefully on a fast lap after the flag was out.

The top ten riders were all under a second, but as close as it looks on paper, Tito Rabat managed his qualifying to perfection.
