World Supersport Superpole doesn't use qualifying tyres, with all riders using the best they have available all weekend long. In the cold weather, fast times could be set at any point in the session.
Randy Krummenacher led Raffaele De Rosa with a 1'38.010 after one lap. After setting quickest sector times, Krummenacher returned to the garage after getting caught in traffic before he could set a fast lap. Federico Caricasulo knocked De Rosa down to third quickest, setting into second place.
With under eleven minutes left, Lucas Mahias blew an engine and pulled his smoking bike to the side of the track and he waved at the marshals, pleading for them to get the flags out. A few riders, De Rosa, Okubo and Perolari, crashed out on Mahias's oil at turn fifteen and the flags came out with ten minutes and forty-two seconds left.
Waiting for the session to restart, the weather decided to turn up. The temperature dropped and the rain started. Then it snowed.
When the session restarted, a few riders set out only to decide against it and go back to the warmth of their garages. Gaetan Matern crashed out in the crappy weather, demonstrating that it wasn't a good idea. At the end of the session, three riders headed out for practice starts, but that was the session done.
Randy Krummenacher acknowledged that it was a weird pole position, but he was in pole position ahead of his Yamaha teammate Federico Caricasulo and MV Agusta's Raffaele De Rosa.
