2021 Aragon World Supersport Superpole Result: Time For A New Record

World Supersport Superpole qualifying opened under excellent weather, giving the rider the best chance to set their best laps. With no qualifying tyres available, times set in the first half of the session may be the qualifying times.

Dominique Aegerter opened up the fast times, setting the fastest lap on his first two laps, ahead of Nikki Tuuli and Jules Cluzel. Philipp Oettl beat Aegerter's time, putting a Kawasaki on top ahead of a Yamaha and MV Agusta, before the mid-session break.

Coming out of the break, Randy Krummenacher exceeded the grip of his cold tyres, pushing the front too hard into the first right-hander, crashing out in twelfth place.

Nikki Tuuli started his first lap a quarter of a second under the best lap and started the long straight with half a second under his belt, but lost two tenths in the last sector, setting a lap of 1'53.225 to go quickest. Jules Cluzel on a good lap, had a strong third sector and slipped under Tuuli's time before hitting the long straight, and gaining three tenths of a second to set an outright lap record with a 1'52.937, knocking Tuuli and Oettl down a place. 

Cluzel, Tuuli and Oettl make up the front row on three different bikes, ahead of Steven Odendaal, Dominique Aegerter and a returning Federico Caricasulo on the all-Yamaha second row. The third and fourth rows were also filled with nothing but Yamahas.
