2009 Indianapolis 125cc FP1 Result - Terol Leads Rain-Curtailed Session

The bikes are out at Indy, and the 125s were the first to fill the vast grandstands at the Speedway with the ringing of two-stroke engines. The session started hot and humid, and the thin clouds which have been slowly filling the skies finally started gently shedding their contents over the track in the final five minutes of practice.

Prior to the rain, the lead was swapped continually between Nicolas Terol, Sergio Gadea and Marc Marquez. Terol eventually emerged at the top of the timesheets, ahead of Simone Corsi and Bradley Smith, while Sandro Cortese was 4th fastest. Championship leader and dominant force in the 125s, Julian Simon, was well down the order in 9th, but ahead of Andrea Iannone, who was only 11th fastest. For the Anglophone riders, Scott Redding was second Briton, but down in 12th place, while De Graaf's Danny Webb was just 18th. Cameron Beaubier was fastest of the Americans, but still just 27th fastest, while American wildcards Miles Thornton and Ben Young finished in 31st and 32nd position, with Young not posting a time fast enough to qualify.
