Rossi has managed to put the RC211V Honda on the pole for tomorrow's MotoGP race.

My question is, and this should be an easy one for all you Trivia guys, when was the last time a four-stroke was on the pole in the top GP class? When, where, who, and what bike?

If I remember well the last 4 stroke to have won a GP race before the RCV was the Benelli 4 cyl, but I don't know if it also had the pole position.

Gianni Agostini, French Grand Prix in 1976, on a 350cc MV.
I don't know if you re right or wrong, but I'm sure you meant Giacomo Agostini :)

I'm not %100 percent sure that's the right answer. I got the right answer (and question) off the motoGP website last Friday, but I failed to write it down, and can no longer find it in the archives. I think Agostini and the MV was the last time a four-stroke qualified on the pole in any class, BUT not the last time in the top class (500cc). I really can't remember the answer, but I'm pretty sure it wasn't Agostini.:rolleyes: :confused: :( ;)
