The last Moto3 qualifying of the year and the title is undecided. Two men are capable of going home with the title, Danny Kent and Miguel Oliviera, although Kent only needs two points. If Kent gets in the top six in this session, he's very likely to find the required points.
Karel Hanika got his crash in early while John McPhee set an early benchmark of 1'39.364. Danny Kent spent a good portion of the session putting in unhindered laps as almost everyone else was pitted in twenty minutes into the session, trying to set a lap without a tow but was in ninth place as he pitted in and the crowd poured out of the pit to trip each other up.
With twenty minutes left, Jorge Navarro used a crowd to giver him the clean air necessary for a 1'39.356, but this was later cancelled for exceeding track limits, along with one each from Oliviera and Kent, returning McPhee to the top. Kent sat in seventeenth place with ten minutes to go as everyone sat in their garages. At the seven minute mark, riders started to leave the pits having sat around for almost four minutes, waiting for someone else to blink.
Miguel Oliviera gave up on following Brad Binder and used Enea Bastainini for a tow, but it only took him to seventh while Kent picked the wrong bunch for a tow. John McPhee crashed out while trying to beat his own pole but his fast time proved unbeatable. He looked winded, but ok.
Danny Kent, caught in traffic, gave up on his last lap and ended the session at the back of the sixth row while his title rival sat at the front of the second row behind McPhee, Roman Fenati and Efron Vazquez. Jorge Navarro in fifth place ahead of Enea Bastainini was the fastest man out there and a likely podium contender tomorrow.
