Cal Crutchlow (LCR Honda) has taken an incredible home pole position at the Octo British Grand Prix, as the Brit kept his stunning wet weather form from the Czech GP running and took only his third career pole. Crutchlow, who has shown good form at Silverstone Circuit throughout the weekend, sees his fairytale continue as he lines up in P1 once again for Sunday’s race. Movistar Yamaha MotoGP rider Valentino Rossi took P2, with Maverick Viñales (Team Suzuki Ecstar) completing the front row.

The top ten in Q2 were joined by Q1 graduates Eugene Laverty (PULL&BEAR Aspar) and Jack Miller (Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS) as the two men made the most of the weather to come to the fore, with big casualties including Pol Espargaro (Monster Yamaha Tech 3) just forced out as the wet weather shook up the order. Espargaro’s temporary teammate Alex Lowes, riding in place of injured Bradley Smith, put in an impressive Q1 performance to line up behind Espargaro on the grid for Sunday’s race, as the rain gave the WorldSBK rider a good opportunity to show his skill set.
