2017 Magny-Cours World Supersport Superpole Results: Dry Weather Red Flag

As the track dried out, World Supersport Superpole had twenty riders competing for two promotion places.

Kyle Smith was a second ahead of Lorenzo Zanetti with four minutes left in the session, six seconds quicker than this morning’s wet session. Zulfahmi Khairuddin knocked Zanetti off second place until Lachlan Epis took it only to lose it to Kazuki Watanabe as Smith pitted in, playing his hand and sticking.

Christian Gamarino took the top spot only to have Kazuki Watanabe ruin Smith’s day and take the top spot. With the flag out, there were a few riders with on fast laps, but nobody could catch Watanabe, but Christoffer Bergman sneaked into second place ahead of Gamarino, Rob Hartog and Lachlan Epis.

In the second session, riders headed out with slicks. Kenan Sofuoglu held the top spot until five minutes from the end where Niki Tuuli set a 1’44.606 to take the top spot on his fourth lap. Sofuoglu responded with a 1’43.994 only to have Tuuli follow him with a 1’43.833 while a few other riders were changing tyres in time for one last lap.

Sofuoglu set out on another fast lap, but he crashed out halfway round, at turn eight. Sheridan Morais crossed the line before the red flag came out for Sofuoglu’s crash and the session was ended with just over a minute left.

This first row for tomorrow’s race is Niki Tuuli, Sheridan Morais and Kenan Sofuoglu, ahead of Federico Caricasulo, Gino Rea and Kazuki Watanabe, benefitting from the extra fifteen minutes of Superpole one.

Michael Canducci and Lucas Mahias crashed out before being able to set a time and would start in eleventh and twelfth place respectively. Sofuoglu was taken to the medical centre, having landed hard on his hip.
