MotoGP Qualifying Results From 2015 Aragon GP

Repsol Honda’s Marc Marquez set the fastest ever lap by a MotoGP *bike around the MotorLand Aragon circuit as he claimed his 29th premier class pole position in a thrilling Q2 session. The Spaniard made the most of ideal conditions at the Gran Premio Movistar de Aragón to set a 1’46.635 on his first run to completely annihilate his own 2014 pole record (1’47.187) by over half a second. The reigning MotoGP World Champion utilized a two-stop strategy and appeared to be going even quicker on his third run before he lost the front at turn 2, walking away unhurt.
