2009 World Supersport Miller FP1 Result - Crutchlow Tops The Sheets In The Dying Minutes

The World Supersport field spent their first session at the Miller track learning their way around, and the times showed it. Ten Kate Honda's Kenan Sofuoglu, who's been here before, took advantage of his track knowledge to grab an early lead, but the rest of the fast five - Kawasaki's Joan Lascorz, Parkalgar Honda's Eugene Laverty, and the Yamaha riders Cal Crutchlow and Fabien Foret - quickly caught up and swapped the lead. Crutchlow ended the day on top, setting his fastest lap in the final minutes of practice, ahead of Joan Lascorz in 2nd and Kenan Sofuoglu in 3rd. Eugene Laverty finished 4th ahead of Fabien Foret. The top 5 were all inside half a second, with 6th place man Andrew Pitt over a second behind Crutchlow.

Of the two female wildcards, Melissa Paris was fastest, and just inside the qualifying 107% limit, while Canadian Marie-Josee Boucher was a couple of seconds too slow. She did, however, beat out two of her male counterparts, finishing 31st out of 33 riders.
