2009 Catalunya 250cc FP2 Result - Bautista Leads Italian Pair

Alvaro Bautista was fastest in the final session of free practice for the 250cc class at Catalunya, retaking the lead in the final seconds of the session. Bautista pushed Mattia Pasini, the previous leader, down into 2nd place, after the Italian had looked like holding the top spot to the end. Marco Simoncelli finished 3rd fastest, ahead of Hector Barbera.

Fastest man from Friday, Alex Debon couldn't match the pace of the front runners, finishing the session in 6th, ahead of Mike di Meglio, with title contender Hiroshi Aoyama only 7th at the track that is nearest to his Barcelona home.

With practice over, the grid will now be set during this afternoon's qualifying session.
