2013 Assen World Supersport QP2 Results: An End To Surprises

Carrying on from this morning, qualifying would come down to whoever was able to dial in a setting with the fewest laps.

Sam Lowes was therefore favourite for pole position and he didn't disappoint, setting a lap three quarters of a second faster than his rival Kenan Sofuoglu could manage. Championship leader Fabien Foret, having missed the whole of Friday through a dislike of riding in the wet, slotted into third ahead of this morning's surprises Jack Kennedy and Roberto Rolfo, while Luca Scassa took the last spot on the second row.

As anticipated, Andrea Antonelli and Christian Iddon were unable to turn their mastery of the wet conditions into anything better than fourth row starts where they sandwich Michael Van Der Mark, a local man who should have qualified much better.

What has been an unusual couple of days on the timing sheets settled down to front row business as usual in the end.
