2011 Le Mans Moto2 Qualifying Practice Result: Another Tight Pole Taken In Three-Way Battle

Results of Moto2 qualifying practice at Le Mans:

Stefan Bradl has retaken the initiative in the Moto2 class, once again topping the timesheets and taking pole for tomorrow's race. The front three places are tight, though, with Interwetten's Thomas Luthi just forty-five hundredths behind the Viessmann Kiefer rider, and Gresini's Yuki Takhashi a further tenth behind Luthi. Aleix Espargaro heads up the second row of the grid in 4th, just ahead of Marc VDS Racing's Scott Redding, who is undergoing something of a revival at Le Mans. Catalunya Caixa-backed Marc Marquez will start from 6th, ahead of Ioda racing's Simon Corsi, and Speed Master's Andrea Iannone, the Italian securing his best qualifying position of the year in 8th, ahead of Mapfre Aspar's Julian Simon and Technomag CIP's Dominique Aegerter.
