2015 Argentina Moto3 QP Result: Pulling A Rabbit Out Of A Lap

Results Below:

Miguel Oliveira put in a blazing final lap to snatch pole position from Danny Kent at the Termas de Rio Hondo track in Argentina. Oliveira, who completed his pole lap with no time remaining, finished five-hundredths of a second clear of Kent who led most of the Saturday session. Niccolo Antonelli, who had closed within six-hundredths of a second to Kent late in the session, was bumped into third with Oliviera's fast final lap.

It is the first pole position of the season for Oliveira and the second of his career. He has scored no points in the two completed races thus far in 2015.

Efren Vazquez, Kent's teammate, leads the second row. Isaac Vinales (5th) finished less than two hundredths ahead of sixth-place qualifier Karel Hanika. Jorge Navarro starts the third row followed by Romano Fenati -- winner in Argentina last year -- and Hiroki Ono.
