2013 Portimão World Supersport QP2 Results: Rain Fails To Slow Riders

World Supersport qualifying was done with a backdrop of threatening weather.

Sam Lowes was able to fend off both the rain and Kenan Sofuoglu. The white flags came out twice during the session, yet Lowes was still able to get within a fifth of a second of Sofuoglu's outright best lap from 2010 and lead Sofuoglu and Sheridan Morais by over half a second. The front row is made up of three manufacturers, with Yamaha, Kawasaki and Honda all represented.

.... I really think this is Lowes championship this year.

Sam is like Redding this year, a different racer. Same cheeky chap in the paddock but when that helmet goes on, he is all business.

Fingers crossed for both of them.
