2016 Chang Thailand World Supersport Superpole Results: Wildcards v Favourites

Fifteen riders contested the first Superpole session in warm and humid conditions. Ratthapong Wilairot, not as we reported earlier last year's race winner Film Wilairot, went into Superpole as the favourite.

Kevin Wahr set the first quick lap but Federico Caricasulo, second in the championship, looked on pace to take the top spot before he met traffic. Decha Kraisart, a Thai wildcard on a Yamaha Thailand bike, went quickest the halfway mark and everyone pitted in.
