2014 Motegi Moto2 QP Result: Last Gasp Effort

Full Recap and Results below:

Tito Rabat has continued his dominant weekend to date to snatch pole during Moto2 Qualifying at Motegi. Rabat posted the quickest time with his final flying lap and robbed Tom Luthi of pole by three hundredths of a second after the Suisse rider had topped the time sheets from very early on. Rabat chipped away in the closing stages of the session, once again displaying outstanding consistency with a number of near identical quick laps. Frenchman Johan Zarco rounded out the front row for the second race in a row after yet another strong qualifying performance, he was three tenths of a second shy of the front-runners.

Maverick Vinales looked quick throughout but had to settle for fourth position; heading up row two while Championship contender Mika Kallio had a subdued session, the Finn was unable to match the sheer pace of his team mate at the front and doesn't look in a position to challenge him on Sunday. Home town hero Takaaki Nakagami put in an encouraging performance and completes the second row. Julian Simon, Franco Morbidelli and Axel Pons will start tomorrows race from row three.
