2017 Motorland Aragon World Supersport Superpole Results: Red Flag And Another Burning Bike

Rain yesterday afternoon put some surprising names outside the top ten, and Superpole one was interrupted with a red flag four and a half minutes in, restricting the restart to just over ten minutes in which too many riders fought for too few places.

The flag was for Ant West’s crash spilling oil on the track and causing yet another burning bike today. The restart was soon back to business as usual with Federico Caricasulo and Jules Cluzel grabbing the top two spots with Robbie Rolfo and Kyle Ryde on the outside looking in.

Lucas Mahias, another rider who really shouldn’t have been in this first session, then pushed everyone down a spot with a 1’55.217, looking back down the back straight, Fabien Foret style. Cluzel pitted in for a tyre change, leaving himself one last lap to try and get into the second session, Rolfo taking second and pushing Caricasulo and Cluzel out of contention.

Cluzel’s last ditch attempt didn’t pay off and he ended in fourth place behind Caricasulo. Lucas Mahias and Robbie Rolfo qualified for Superpole two.

Kyle Smith set the first fast benchmark lap in the second session, with PJ Jacobsen and Lucas Mahias, four tenths slower than Smith in the last sector, filling the provisional front row before the mid-session tyre change.

Jacobsen left the pits early and set a 1’54.948 to go quickest as Kenan Sofuoglu, surprisingly quiet for most of the session, set the second fastest lap, leapfrogging to the front row from seventh place with Sheridan Morais in third.

As the flag came out, nobody was on a particularly quick lap and the front row was confirmed as Jacobsen, Sofuoglu and Morais.
