2014 Assen Moto3 QP: Brief Rain Makes For Tricky Session

Full Recap and Results Below:

Jack Miller has taken his fourth pole position of the season following Moto3 qualifying for the Dutch TT at Assen. There was a very brief light rain shower midway through the session but this didn't stop the Championship leader from eventually posting a rapid time of 1:42.240, the fastest ever lap by a Moto3 machine around the circuit. The Australian will be joined on the front row by Honda rider Alex Marquez and Husqvarna's Niklas Ajo. 

French veteran Alexis Masbou registered the fourth quickest lap and will head up row two for tomorrow's race, Niccolo Antonelli and Alex Rins will line up alongside. Team Calvo rider Isaac Vinales finished the session in seventh position ahead of rookie rider Karel Hanika. Hanika is the only rider in the current field to have won at the Assen circuit previously after winning the Red Bull rookies race last year. Championship contender Romano Fenati rounds out the third row in ninth place.
