2010 Portimao World Supersport QP2 - Two Riders Duke It Out Over Pole Position

Results of qualifying for the World Supersport class at Portimao:

Eugene Laverty has seized pole position at the Parkalgar Honda team's home circuit for tomorrow's World Supersport race. The Ulsterman swapped the lead all session long with Ten Kate Honda's Kenan Sofuoglu, the two men pushing each other so hard that Sofuoglu crashed in the dying seconds, in a final attempt to wrest the pole back from Laverty.

The rest of the field could not match the pace of the two pole contenders. Michele Pirro took 3rd on the other Ten Kate Honda, while Motocard.com Kawasaki's Joan Lascorz rounds out the front row. Fabien Foret heads up row two, ahead of Chaz Davies on the Triumph and Lascorz' teammate Katsuaki Fujiwara. Laverty's teammate and local hero Miguel Praia ended the day in 8th, and sits on the end of the second row.
