2012 Brno Moto2 Qualifying Practice Result: Another Pole Record Smashed

Results and summary of qualifying for the Moto2 class at Brno:

Pol Espargaro has taken pole position for Sunday's Moto2 race at Brno, destroying Marc Marquez' pole record by over half a second along the way. The HP Tuenti rider pushed hard all session - despite spots of rain at around the halfway mark - then put in a devastating final lap to smash the record. Thomas Luthi ended up in 2nd, while Scott Redding came up four thousandths short of Luthi's time, qualifying in 3rd. Marc Marquez heads up the second row, ahead of Simone Corsi and Andrea Iannone. Iannone's qualifying was brave, given that he had a big and painful crash early on the session.
