125: Terol on pole at Indy

Nico Terol takes pole position for the 125cc Indianapolis Grand Prix.
Nico Terol, whose 125cc World Championship lead has been slashed from 32 to 12 points after a technical problem at Brno, quashed any signs of weakness by romping to his sixth pole of the season at Indianapolis on Saturday.

The Aspar Aprilia rider finished a massive 0.720sec clear of Sandro Cortese, who took his first win at Brno, with Terol's nearest title challenger Johann Zarco 0.740sec behind to complete the front row.

Race-winning rookie Maverick Vinales was the final rider within one-second of pole, with Englishman Danny Kent an excellent fifth on the grid for Red Bull Ajo Aprilia.

Qualifying:

1. Terol (Aprilia) 1m 48.199s
2. Cortese (Aprilia) +0.720s
3. Zarco (Derbi) +0.740s
4. Vinales (Aprilia) +0.792s

10. Masbou (KTM) +1.795s

Great performance by Danny Kent. Hope the bike doesn't let him down again tomorrow. As for the comment above, it just shows the pathetic mentality of the poster, having to rush to post such a comment on the 125 qualifying thread.

Agree with MM, only second time on the RSA and he is on the pace of all bar Terol who has 6 years experience on 125s and on the best bike on the grid. Also first time at the track, hope he keeps the bike for the rest of the season. Kent and Vinales are the future stars.
