2019 Philip Island World Supersport Superpole Results: Trying To Get A Tow

Superpole for World Supersport has, like World Superbike qualifying, switched to a single twenty-five minute session.

Randy Krummenacher set an early quick time, but at the halfway mark, Federico was over three tenths of a second quicker with a 1'32.693. Krummenacher stole the top spot back by only one hundredth of a second.

Krummenacher was on even quicker lap until he realised he was just towing riders around and he aborted his quick lap and gesticulated at the group of Hector Barberas behind him. Five minutes later, Federico Caricasulo set the pope position time of 1'32.604, taking the top spot from his teammate. Jules Cluzel filled the last Yamaha spot on the front row. Raffaele De Rosa had a few issues at the beginning of the session, but he eventually recorded a lap time and headed the second row, alongside his teammate Federico Fuligni. Thomas Gradinger was sixth quickest.
