|Qualifying at the Jerez circuit was the first dry session of the weekend and
the Repsol Honda riders wasted no time on setting up their RC213V machines.
Fastest times were exchanged throughout the beginning of the session but after
30 minutes the threat of rain appeared again. Only a few drops fell and both
Dani and Casey were able to continue their preparation and push for the fastest
In the final five minutes it became a two-man battle with Yamaha's Jorge Lorenzo taking pole and Dani following close behind just 0.135 off Lorenzo's time. Casey missed the front row by just 0.014 of a second and will start from fifth position.
In the past six years, Dani has always started from 1st or 2nd on the grid (1st - 2007 and 2010, 2nd - 2008, 2009, 2011 and 2012).
The 27 lap race will take place tomorrow at 2pm CET.
Well I doubt I will ever be brave enough to buy a conversion like this but saw these and the think they look amazing. I find that a great deal of headlight conversion often look tacky and dread it when I hear of angel or demon eyes. These however seem tasteful and do seem to suit the lines of the bike.
