2012 Monza World Supersport FP1 - Lowes a step ahead of the rest.

After a red flag on the first out lap delayed a proper start, Sam Lowes and Broc Parkes settled into the top two places, joined by Jules Cluzel's fast CBR600 and Kenan Sofuoglu on the Kawasaki in the early part of the session. Sam Lowes was the first rider into the 1'49s, then the first into the 1'48s, where he was eventually joined by Fabien Foret and Broc Parkes. Last year's pole position was an astounding 1'47.809 by Chaz Davies, but tellingly, Sam Lowes was in second place, having to wait until Saturday before he could set a 1'48 lap; a 1'48.051. These are the yardsticks for this weekend's qualifying.
