Italtrans Racing’s Joe Roberts and American Racing’s Cameron Beaubier will line up oine row apart in tomorrow’s Moto2 Grand Prix at Motorland Aragon after the pair took different paths to the 18th and 19th spots on the grid.
Roberts was able to make the cut from Q1 to Q2 by posting the second fastest time, a 1:52.400, in Q1, but an off-track excursion in the second session thwarted his efforts once he got there and he only managed to finish 18th overall.
Beaubier, meanwhile, just missed out on a transfer to Q2 by .067 of a second with his 1:52.784 and that puts him 19th on the grid for tomorrow’s GP.
Roberts will start on the outside of the sixth row with Beaubier set to start from the inside of row seven.
Elf Marc VDS Racing Team’s Alex Lowes will start the race from pole position, the Brit lapping at 1:51.778 in Q2 to best World Championship points leader Remy Gardner on the Red Bull KTM Ajo Kalex. Gardner’s teammate Raul Fernandez will fill the front row of the grid for tomorrow’s race.
