Pole for Sam Lowes ... who will be last in Misano

The British dragged a sanction from Austria and his privileged position is inherited by the Australian Gardner. Vierge, better Spanish, will start 5th.

The British Sam Lowes (Estrella Galicia 0'0 Kalex) took this Saturday with the best practice time for the Grand Prix of San Marino and the Rimini Riviera, which takes place this Sunday at the 'Marco Simoncelli' circuit in Misano Adriatico , with a new track record for the category at 1: 36.170. The paradox is that the ninth pole of the sports career of Sam Lowes will not allow him to start first in the starting formation due to having to comply with the sanction that was imposed on him in the second race in Austria for his unsportsmanlike conduct with the Thai Somkiat Chantra and the Spanish Jorge Navarro and will have to start from the pit lane.

The Italian Fabio di Giannantonio (Speed Up), the Spanish Héctor Garzó (Kalex), the American Joe Roberts (Kalex) and the also Spanish Marcos Ramírez (Kalex) were the ones who achieved the pass to the second classification, not so Arón Canet ( Speed Up), who showed no signs of feeling comfortable at any time, and Edgar Pons (Kalex), who finished late in the session. Marco Bezzecchi (Kalex) was the first leader in the final classification, closely followed by the Spanish Héctor Garzó, who arrived "hot and with a very good rhythm", from the first classification, although there were still two-thirds of the session ahead , who could not finish Jorge Navarro (Speed Up), who fell and could not continue, so he was relegated to the last positions of the batch.

A Bezzecchi, who fell a little at turn 16 at the entrance to the home straight, and could no longer defend his position, was succeeded at the head of the times by Sam Lowes (Estrella Galicia 0'0 Kalex), with a time of 1: 36.170 in the fourth lap he completed, but still with time ahead for further changes to take place in the order of the same and this despite knowing that to comply with the sanction that was imposed in Austria he will have to start in the Moto2 race from pit road. No one could beat Lowes' record and the one who came closest was the Australian Remy Gardner (Kalex), who next year will occupy the place of the Spanish Jorge Martín (Kalex) in the KTM team led by the Finnish Aki Ajo, with the Italian Luca Marini (Kalex), best free practice time in third position.

Bezzecchi had to settle for the fourth final place, ahead of his compatriot Enea Bastianini (Kalex), the Spaniard Xavier Vierge (Kalex), the German Marcel Schrotter (Kalex) and the also Spanish Augusto Fernández (Estrella Galicia 0'0 Kalex ). Marcos Ramírez (Kalex) got eleventh place, with Jorge Navarro (Speed Up) thirteenth and Héctor Garzó, fifteenth.
