Valencia, 05 November: last 2011 qualifying session was held today at Ricardo Tormo circuit under cloudy skies and, on a damp surface, the premier class World Champion Casey Stoner put his RCV on pole again with a best lap time of 1’31.861.

LCR Honda racer Toni Elias found the 60-minute qualifying session a bit stressful as the track was not fully wet but the Spaniard improved a lot his RCV package ahead tomorrow’s 30-lap ultimate race. At 10.10am local Toni and his colleagues from all three categories of the World Championship will depart from Pit Lane as a group, and will complete a lap of the track in honour of Marco Simoncelli.

Elias – 13th (1’34.680): “This morning was tough but we have improved a lot in the afternoon session. These mixed conditions with damp surface are not my favourite but this morning we made some adjustments on the weight balance and I felt more confident. So I kept on working on that bike even in the afternoon. The riders up in the front are too fast but I think I can take another good start and make my race in the top ten. This is going to be my last race aboard this bike with this Team so I want to make the most of this Sunday”.
