2019 Jerez World Supersport Superpole Result: Thrills And Spills

World Supersport fielded twenty eight riders for their twenty five lap qualifying session, all on standard race tyres. 

Federico Caricasulo opened the session with a 1'42.766 only to be bettered by Randy Krummenacher's 1'42.036. Lucas Mahias briefly held second place until Caricasulo completed his second lap.

As Krummenacher sat in the pits, Caricasulo sliced a few tenths off his lap time, finally getting the top spot with a 1'42.030 at the halfway mark. Hikari Okubo, in spite of an early crash, clawed his way to 5th place, behind Raffaele De Rosa. Jules Cluzel, sixth quickest at this point, crashed with nine minutes remaining, luckily not ditching enough gravel on the track to end the session.

Randy Krummenacher came out for his last few laps, setting a 1'41.775, immediately followed by a turn one crash. Federico Caricasulo rode past Krummenacher's crashed bike on a fast lap, but he lost time in the last half of the lap and was unable to catch Krummenacher. A lap later and he improved his lap time but remained in second place ahead of Lucas Mahias, the only other rider within a second of the provisional pole time, but as there flag came out, after Mahias improved his time, Thomas Gradinger and Raffaele de Rosa joined them with laps under only three quarters of a second of the session's quickest time.

As the flag came out, Federico Caricasulo put in a 1'41.586 to take pole position from Randy Krummenacher with Lucas Mahias rounding out the front row. The second row will be made up of Raffaele Dr Rosa, Thomas Gradinger and Hikari Okubo. Kyle Smith did not record a laptime. 

Update: Caricasulo has been penalised for ignoring a yellow flag.
