2012 Assen World Supersport FP1 Results: Lowes and Parkes set the early pace

Sam Lowes (Bogdanka PTR Honda) and Broc Parkes (Ten Kate Racing Products) set the pace early on and appeared to be in a different race to everyone else. At the thirty-minute mark, Kenan Sofuoglu (Kawasaki DeltaFin Lorenzini) and Massimo Roccoli (Bike Service - WTR TEN 10) joined them in the 1'41s but Lowes had already put in a high 1'40 by then. Jules Cluzel's PTR Honda CBR600RR was 5kmh faster than the rest which helped him ease into the 1'40s in the last few minutes. Imre Toth (Racing Team Toth) was the only other rider with a 1'40, but Fabien Foret (Kawasaki Intermoto Step) nearly managed it in the last lap. With Parkes and Lowes passing each other on the leader board, like mountaineers tied together on a cliff face, one of those two men would have to be early favourite for the pole position. Not only were they faster than the rest, they were faster sooner.
