2009 Brno 125cc Qualifying Practice Result - Smart Slipstreaming Wins Pole

Results and summary of qualifying practice for the 125cc class:

Andrea Iannone took a stunning pole at Brno, the wily Italian slipping into the draft of Nicolas Terol while the Spaniard was on a fast lap. Terol had led for much of the 40 minute session, but just a couple of minutes to go, Iannone tucked in behind Terol and used the tow to gain an advantage of 0.3 seconds.

Sandro Cortese took his Derbi to 3rd place, some comfort for the Spanish team after team mate Pol Espargaro was ruled out with mechanical problems, a disappointment since Espargaro was fastest in the morning session. Julian Simon rounds out the front row for tomorrow's race, while team mate Bradley Smith heads up the second row. Stefan Bradl, Sergio Gadea and the unfortunate Pol Espargaro complete the second row.

De Graaf's Danny Webb will start from 15th, while compatriot Scott Redding struggled down in 22nd.
