2017 Misano World Supersport Superpole Results: Slipstreaming Is Fun

Superpole one, contested by twenty three riders vying for the top two spots, was red flagged with ten minutes to go after a couple of crashes.

Loris Cresson and Hannes Soomer led before the red flag but the session ended with Kyle Smith and Sheridan Morais getting promoted to Superpole two.

After one lap of Superpole two, Kenan Sofuoglu was quickest ahead of Lucas Mahias with a 1’39.403 but a lap later, after his time was beaten by Christian Gamarino and Federico Caricasulo, Sofuoglu took the top spot back with a 1’38.897, the first 1’38 lap of the weekend.

After a tyre change for a tea break, Luke Stapleford was first back out, putting himself into fifth place before everyone else returned to the track. Kenan Sofuoglu increased his lead at the top, posting a 1’38.672 and turning everyone else’s potential first place laps into potential second place laps. Federico Caricasulo held second place briefly until Jules Cluzel slipstreamed Kyle Smith along the straight to take second place from him and get within a tenth of a second of Sofuoglu.

Third-placed Federico Caricasulo tucked in behind his teammate Lucas Mahias to steal his clean air in an attempt to gain a place, but all he did was keep Mahias back in fourth place, much to the Frenchman’s annoyance.

Kenan Sofuoglu takes pole position ahead of his old rival Jules Cluzel and Federico Caricasulo with championship leader Lucas Mahias heading the second row next to Christian Gamarino, in spite of a late crash, and Luke Stapleford.
