2013 Donington World Supersport QP1 Results: Lowes Leaves It Late To Lap For Provisional Pole

Sam Lowes topped the timed session to get provisional pole over a second faster than Kenan Sofuoglu. Lowes left it until late in the session before heading out and only recorded four complete laps, claiming the top spot with three out of those four laps.

The riders are still over ten seconds off the lap record set by Sam Lowes in 2011, and Gabor Talmasci was the fastest man throughout most of the session, setting the fastest lap ten times, until Lowes and Sofuoglu fought for the pole slot. The track conditions are still holding the times up, but the weather promises to improve tomorrow.

.. it only didn't snow out of spite. ;) 41Kph winds, 8c on the charts. Talmasci leading most of the session (Good on ta, Gabor!) .. Crazy days. Made me not so sad to be in California though.
