2009 Imola World Supersport Qualifying - Closely Contested Pole To The End

Results of qualifying for the World Supersport class:

Cal Crutchlow continued his clean sweep of practice, but he had to pull out a blistering final lap to do so. The Yamaha rider had led the first half of practice, but with 11 minutes left to go, Ten Kate Honda's Kenan Sofuoglu nipped ahead of him, by a couple of hundredths at first and then over a tenth a few laps later. After the checkered flag has fallen, Crutchlow flew round the track to take back pole, by a convincing margin.

Joan Lascorz was 3rd fastest once again, and Massimo Roccoli continues his strong form in 4th spot. Crutchlow's chief title challenger, Eugene Laverty, could manage only the 7th fastest time, over 1.9 seconds off the Yamaha man's pace.
