|Casey Stoner will start tomorrow's Dutch TT from pole position, with team
mate Dani Pedrosa alongside him after one of the best qualifying sessions of the
season for the Repsol Honda Team. It is the third time in 2012 that the Repsol
Honda riders have started from 1st and 2nd, having also done so in Estoril (1st
Stoner - 2nd Pedrosa) and Le Mans (1st Pedrosa - 2nd Stoner).|
The session was interrupted twice due to light showers and the final grid positions were only decided in the final flying laps. Casey did a fantastic job to put this morning's hard crash behind him and whilst laying ninth on the grid with just six minutes remaining, put in an incredible lap to take his third pole of the season, after Portugal and Catalunya.
Dani, finally finishing second and just one tenth off his team mate, was topping the time sheets on both occasions when the rain stopped play but missed his chance at the top spot after he ran wide on his final lap. In the morning practice session, Dani set the fastest lap of the combined free practice times, and remains confident to maintain a high pace in tomorrow's race.
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.
