Results and summary of qualifying for the Moto3 class in Buriram:
The second day for the lightweight class to explore the new playground at their disposal brought them up to speed straight away, sending Friday’s benchmark out the window in the first ten minutes of the session. Fabio di Giannantonio was the first man to dip into the 1:42s and the Italian kept showing the way throughout proceedings, one and a half tenths ahead of the opposition. The Italian doubled that advantage – impressively while running on his own and with no slipstream opportunities – on his final outing.

KTM RC 250 R engine (Moto3)
Peter Bom: This engine is tilted backwards for cleaning and maintenance. Note the (orange) caps that keep dirt out of the inlet / exhaust ports during transport and cleaning. The aluminum box on the left is the water / oil intercooler. Here, instead of using an oil cooler, the water from the radiator cools the engine oil.
