125cc World Championship leader Nico Terol is on target for his third Brno victory in a row, after claiming pole position with a dominant performance in Saturday's qualifying session.

The Aspar Aprilia rider, who starts Sunday's tenth round holding a 32 point lead over Johann Zarco, repeatedly lowered the pole time to finish 0.385sec ahead of Zarco's Ajo Derbi.

German Sandro Cortese will complete the front row, over half-a-second from Terol, whose team-mate and Sachsenring winner Hector Faubel heads row two.
