Continued rain in this afternoon at Brno prevented many of the 250cc riders from improving their times from yesterday, meaning Sebastian Porto starts from pole position for the sixth time this season.

Porto was also quickest in the dry session this morning and is boosted by poor grid positions for Dani Pedrosa and Randy de Puniet, the two men ahead of him in the championship. Pedrosa starts from the fourth row of the grid in thirteenth place, two places behind de Puniet, who he leads by 34 points at the top of the standings.

Back on the front row, Porto is joined by fellow Aprilia riders Fonsi Nieto, Alex de Angelis and Sylvain Guintoli, whilst Roby Rolfo represents the top Honda at the front of the second row in fifth.

1. Porto (Aprilia)
2. Nieto (Aprilia) +0.196secs
3. De Angelis (Aprilia) +0.267secs
