2014 Motegi Moto2 QP Result: Last Gasp Effort

Full Recap and Results below:

Tito Rabat has continued his dominant weekend to date to snatch pole during Moto2 Qualifying at Motegi. Rabat posted the quickest time with his final flying lap and robbed Tom Luthi of pole by three hundredths of a second after the Suisse rider had topped the time sheets from very early on. Rabat chipped away in the closing stages of the session, once again displaying outstanding consistency with a number of near identical quick laps. Frenchman Johan Zarco rounded out the front row for the second race in a row after yet another strong qualifying performance, he was three tenths of a second shy of the front-runners.

Maverick Vinales looked quick throughout but had to settle for fourth position; heading up row two while Championship contender Mika Kallio had a subdued session, the Finn was unable to match the sheer pace of his team mate at the front and doesn't look in a position to challenge him on Sunday. Home town hero Takaaki Nakagami put in an encouraging performance and completes the second row. Julian Simon, Franco Morbidelli and Axel Pons will start tomorrows race from row three.

2014 Motegi MotoGP QP Result: Long Time Between Drinks

Full Recap and Results below:

Andrea Dovizioso has taken his second ever MotoGP pole position for the Grand Prix of Japan, it is his second pole at Motegi and it has been four years since he last claimed the prime grid position, it's also Ducati's first pole position in nearly the same period of time. 'Dovi' did an outstanding job throughout qualifying with the use of his super-soft rear tire to beat home countryman Valentino Rossi by a meager five hundredths of a second. Dani Pedrosa completed the front row despite a big crash on his final flying lap, the Honda again displayed issues under heavy braking and the lap time could have been enough for pole had he been able to complete it. 

Marc Marquez never quite looked comfortable throughout the session, his first run was eventful as the Championship leader ran off track on his first flying lap and he never really seemed to recover full confidence from there. Jorge Lorenzo joins Marquez on the second row of the grid alongside Andrea Iannone. The front three rows all contained three different manufacturers as Yamaha rider Pol Espargaro edged out Ducati's Cal Crutchlow and LCR Honda rider Stefan Bradl. The top eight riders were split by only three tenths of a second confirming the potential for a very interesting race tomorrow. 

Bradley Smith will head up row four alongside Aleix Espargaro and Alvaro Bautista; the Spanish duo made it through a thrilling Q1 session after being pushed all the way by Yonny Hernandez and the customer Honda's of Nicky Hayden and Scott Redding.

2014 Motegi MotoGP FP4 Result: Lorenzo Shows Strong Race Pace

Jorge Lorenzo has topped the final free practice session for the MotoGP class at Motegi, the Yamaha rider showed supreme consistency to end proceedings less than a tenth of a second clear of Repsol Honda's Dani Pedrosa. Pedrosa also demonstrated excellent and consistent race pace after struggling somewhat in the sessions prior. Fellow factory Honda rider Marc Marquez rounded out the top three, also less than a tenth behind pace-setter Lorenzo, however he continued to show signs of instability under braking, running wide off the circuit on a number of occasions. 

The Ducati pairing of Andrea Iannone and Andrea Dovizioso claimed fourth and fifth spots respectively ahead of Stefan Bradl and Valentino Rossi. Rossi was only three tenths shy of his team mate Lorenzo; signifying the potential for a very close race on Sunday. Cal Crutchlow ended up a further three tenths behind Rossi in eighth but lapped strongly throughout, the Briton managed to edge out the Tech 3 Yamaha duo of Pol Espargaro and Bradley Smith.

2014 Motegi Moto3 QP Result: Dominant Performance, Surprise Front Row

Full Recap and Results below:

Danny Kent has continued his love affair with the Motegi circuit and taken a dominant pole position following Moto3 Qualifying. The on-form Briton made the most of near perfect conditions to put in a succession of quick lap times in the closing minutes and finish the session over three tenths clear of the surprise pairing of Niccolo Antonelli and John McPhee, who complete the front row.

Mahindra rider Miguel Oliveira was at the top of the time sheets for a large portion of the session but had to settle for fourth spot in the end ahead of Jack Miller. Miller had an ugly high side on the exit of turn five early in proceedings, his KTM clobbered him several times on the way through. Luckily he was able to get to his feet and ride the bike back to the pit lane for repairs, ultimately the Australian showed great resilience to respond and claim fifth while fellow KTM rider Isaac Vinales rounded out the second row.

Championship leader Alex Marquez had a difficult session and had to be satisfied with seventh position, he edged out Brad Binder and his Estrella Galicia team mate Alex Rins, who was another of the Championship contenders to come to grief, crashing in the opening stages. Juanfran Guevara, Niklas Ajo and Alessandro Tonucci will comprise the make up of the fourth row while Championship combatants Efren Vazquez and Romano Fenati had to settle for 14th and 17th places respectively.

2014 Motegi Moto2 FP3 Result: Rabat Relentless In Tight Session

Tito Rabat has topped the timesheets following Moto2 FP3 at Motegi, the Spaniard was in imperious form reeling off a number of quick laps and demonstrating intimidating race pace. He will however be in for a stern challenge as he finished the session ahead of both Tom Luthi and Johann Zarco by less than a tenth of a second. Maverick Vinales also showed consistent race pace and took fourth spot a tenth further back while Mika Kallio could only manage fifth place and has some work to do match Rabat's consistency.

There was an almost half second gap from Kallio to Julian Simon in sixth who was the best of the second bunch of riders, Simon is also rumored to have signed a contract with QMMF racing for 2015 after losing his seat at Italtrans racing to Kallio. Simon edged out Jonas Folger and Franco Morbidelli while Sandro Cortese and Jordi Torres rounded out the top ten. In further silly season gossip it is believed that Torres is bound for the World Superbike Championship next season with the withdrawal of he Aspar Moto2 team and after failing to replicate his race winning form of 2013.

2014 Motegi MotoGP FP3 Result: Imperturbable Marquez Sets Circuit Record

Championship leader Marc Marquez has topped a frantic MotoGP FP3 session as riders clambered for a direct route to this afternoons Q2 in a chaotic final few minutes. Marquez encountered technical problems in the opening stages of the session which were later identified as a new engine acting 'strangely'. In familiar style he didn't let the disruption effect him, he jumped on his second bike and went on to set the fastest ever MotoGP lap at the Motegi circuit, almost exactly one second quicker than his best Friday time. Andrea Dovizioso's quick lap from Friday was enough for him to take second place in combined times for Q1 qualification, while compatriot Valentino Rossi finished second in the session and completed the top three in combined times.

Fellow Yamaha rider and MotoGP rookie Pol Espargaro did a sterling job to set the fourth fastest combined time edging out the more senior Jorge Lorenzo and Ducati rider Andrea Iannone. Bradley Smith put in a solid performance to claim seventh place ahead of countryman Cal Crutchlow and Dani Pedrosa who struggled to find outright quick lap pace. Stefan Bradl's Friday time was enough to round out the top ten and completed the group of riders who qualify directly for this afternoons Q2 session. The likes of Alvaro Bautista, Aleix Espargaro, Yonny Hernandez and Hector Barbera will have to do things the hard way and fight for the final two Q2 slots in the Q1 session beforehand.

2014 Motegi Moto3 FP3 Result: Miller Takes Control In Morning Running

Under glorious morning sunshine Jack Miller has responded to a disappointing Friday performance to top the opening Moto3 practice session at Motegi. The Australian's time of 1:57.072 was over a second quicker than Danny Kent's standing lap record and three tenths quicker than the Briton's benchmark time from yesterday. Kent continued his strong showing however to finish the session less than a tenth behind Miller in second as Isaac Vinales took third position a further tenth behind.

Mahindra's Miguel Oliveira also continued his positive weekend form to take fourth spot ahead of Championship contender Alex Rins and fellow Mahindra rider Brad Binder. Zulfahmi Khairuddin made a welcome return to the top ten ahead of Spaniard Efren Vazquez while Jakub Kornfeil and Juanfran Guevara claimed ninth and tenth places respectively. It was an incident packed session and Championship leader Alex Marquez suffered a nasty high side early on, he never quite regained his confidence and had to settle for 17th place. He will look to regroup ahead of qualifying later today.
