2016 Phillip Island World Supersport FP1 Results: Sofuoglu And Cluzel Carry On Rivalry

The top two slots are, unsurprisingly, taken by the arch-rivals from last year, with Kenan Sofuoglu ahead of Jules Cluzel. Randy Krummenacher, fresh from five years in Moto2, posted consistent quick laps, holding off Lorenzo Zanetti for the third quickest time. Kyle Ryde, third place last year as a wild card at Donington, was fifth quiclest. PJ Jacobsen, sensational last year after taking over Film Wilairot's Honda, could only muster seventh quickest behind Alex Baldolini on a customer MV Agusta.

If the first day of the combined WSBK test was hampered by a wet track at the start, on Wednesday, it was fog which delayed the action.
