2009 WSS Phillip Island QP1 Result - Local Boy Strikes Back

The Ten Kate dominance continues in the World Supersport class, with Andrew Pitt taking provisional pole in this afternoon's session. Team mate Kenan Sofuoglu was fastest in the morning session, but was pipped by 6/100ths in the afternoon. The Yamaha riders also saw their order reversed between morning and afternoon. Rookie Cal Crutchlow had been fastest Yamaha during free practice, but the Briton saw his French team mate Fabien Foret leapfrog ahead of him up to third place. BE1 Triumph's Garry McCoy remained on the front row, fourth fastest in both morning and afternoon session. Fellow Australian Ant West managed a creditable 7th fastest time, and must feel relief at being near the top of the timesheets, rather than the bottom.

Dutchman Barry Veneman was the fastest of the Suzukis, though only managing to set the 12th fastest time. The first Kawasaki was Spaniard Joan Lascorz, directly behind Veneman in 13th. Practice and qualifying continues tomorrow.
