2019 San Juan Villicum World Supersport Superpole Result: Hot And Dusty

World Supersport Superpole was contested on a hot track, slowing proceedings down and reducing grip. 

Kyle Smith opened Superpole with a 1'46.831, then set a 1'46.277 as Corentin Perolari matched his time exactly. A lap later, Perolari set a 1'46.065 and it looked like he might be joined by Jules Cluzel, but Cluzel ran off and lost his lap with a slow run through the gravel.

Ten minutes in, everyone contesting the top four rows pitted in. Federico Caricasulo and Randy Krummenacher were not qualified on the front row before everyone headed back out. Lucas Mahias slid the rear wheel round corners to get within two tenths of Perolari's top time, knocking Kyle Smith down to third quickest. Randy Krummenacher climbed a few places to fifth quickest, knocking Federico Caricasulo down to sixth place, then he knocked Isaac Vinales down to fourth place as he joined the French duo on the provisional front row.

Corentin Perolari increased the pace with a 1'45.993 with five minutes remaining, while Jules Cluzel and Kyle Smith put in fast laps, with Cluzel making it an all-French provisional front row, second quickest with Smith fourth quickest. Ayrton Badovini climbed up the list to fifth quickest, improving the lap after to snatch second place as the flag came out. Only Jules Cluzel was on a quick lap after the flag, but he lost it in the second sector and ended the session in third place.

Corentin Perolari did enough to hold off the challenges and claim his first pole position, heading the front row of Ayrton Badovini and Jules Cluzel. Kyle Smith headed Lucas Mahias and Randy Krummenacher to make the second row with Isaac Vinales, Federico Caricasulo and Christian Stange on the third row of the grid.
