2012 Philip Island WSS Warm Up - Parkes On Top Again

Broc Parkes was again the fastest man on track in Sunday morning's Supersport warm up session. The pole man finished more than a half-second quicker than Fabien Foret, who was followed home by Sam Lowes, Vladimir Leonov, and Kenan Sofuoglu.

 
Parkes, Foret, Lowes, and Sofuoglu look to be the only riders capable of lapping in the high-1'34s and low-1'35s, and each has done so convincingly in at least one session throughout the weekend. We should be in for another in a long line of great World Supersport races, assuming the tires hold up. The race has been shortened from 21 laps to 15 to accomodate tire wear on 60 degree track temperatures.
