2012 Donington World Supersport QP2 - A Few Cold Crashes

World Supersports qualifying took place on a cold dry day, with riders breaking last year's lap records.

In the early part of World Supersports qualifying, Sam Lowes set a time very close to his previous lap record. After a long visit to the pits, he set out to challenge his own time and was on target to set an even faster lap when he crashed out. His fellow PTR rider, Jules Cluzel then, to add insult to injury, took pole position off him.

While Lowes was unable to get out again and challenge for pole position, his second place was safe as Broc Parkes and Kenan Sofuoglu were unable to take it off him and had to settle for third and fourth respectively. Wildcard Glen Richards is fifth on the grid.

Several riders fell, getting caught out with the deceptively cold track, and Antonelli was taken to Queens Medical Centre.
