Moto2 vs Supersport

This is one of the few tracks MotoGP and SWC series share. And this year, as noted, is the first time at Sepang for the SWC series. So, how much faster is a Moto2 bike around Sepang than a Supersport machine? Well, we have some answers. The Moto2 pole position record is 2m 06.962s (average 157.0 km/h) set by Pol Espargaro in 2012.

Cluzel's pole time is 2m 08.331s (155.635s km/h). So he is 1.369 seconds slower over 5.548 kilometres than Moto2 pole position record. Not a bad start, eh!
