2020 Phillip Island World Supersport Superpole Result: Slicks Quick

This year, World Supersport gets slick tyres, and no longer need to use road-legal tyres. Twenty five minutes would determine the grid for tomorrow's race.

Very early on, Andrea Locatelli set a 1'32.440, using the slick tyres to finally beat Sam Lowes's 2013 lap record. The MV Agustas of Randy Krummenacher and Raffaele de Rosa were the only other bikes within a second in the early stages. 

After a short tea break, reigning champion Randy Krummenacher, sporting the number one plate, closed the gap to Andrea Locatelli to a quarter of a second only to have Locatelli increase his lead by another tenth of a second. 

On his third outing, Randy Krummenacher strung a lap together, a quarter of a second quicker in the first sector, to take the top spot from Andrea Locatelli by seventeen thousandths of a second. French contenders Lucas Mahias and Jules Cluzel knocked Raffaele de Rosa down to fifth, taking third and fourth place respectively.

Andrea Locatelli was on a fast lap as the flag came out and everyone else had pretty much settled. He hit the chequered flag to take pole position in his debut ride, knocking Krummenacher to second place on the grid with Lucash mahias rounding out the front row. The second row matched the first, with a Yamaha, MV Agusta and Kawasaki in the same order, made of Jules Cluzel, Raffaele de Rosa and Philipp Oettl.
