Author of only one pole position in the Supersport category, the 2011 champion Chaz Davies has just won this afternoon at Laguna Seca (tonight) his first Superpole in World Superbike. Welsh rider ahead of Giugliano and Torres…
Author of the best time of the first day of practice (Friday) but second fastest in the two free sessions today (Saturday), Chaz Davies finally dominated his little comrades during the Superpole by covering the 3.6 km of Laguna Seca in 1 ‘22,101 on the handlebars of his factory 1199 Panigale.
The absolute track record remains the property of Tom Sykes (1 ’21, 811 during the 2014 American Superpole), but the Ducati rider n ° 7 can be proud of his time since it allows him to take his very first pole position in Superbike category !
Less than two tenths of a second behind "Chazie", his teammate Davide Giugliano secures a fifth straight first row this season, which the Italian only started three months ago at Imola due to a nasty fall during Australian tests in February…
Fourth then second in the last two WSBK events contested in Portimao and Misano, the Italian n ° 34 – a big fan of Kevin Schwantz, Davide winks at the American driver on his helmet this weekend – hopes to finally transform his excellent tests this Sunday…
Fourth time in the final phase of the Superpole (SP2) on hard tires, behind Davies, Giugliano and Sykes, Jordi Torres took full advantage of his qualifying tire and will complete the first row tomorrow (Sunday evening). Aprilia Red Devils rider # 81 will also race after first World Superbike success.
Winner at eleven, three and once (s) this season, Jonathan Rea, Tom Sykes and Leon Haslam will place their Kawasaki n ° 65, n ° 66 and Aprilia n ° 91 respectively in this precise order on the second row of the American grid. The first braking at the Andretti hairpin may be bleeding !
Very impressive because very fast from the first free practice session, Niccolo Canepa posts his private Panigale n ° 59 (Ducati Althea) at the head of the third row in front of an Alex Lowes who does not deserve either at the controls of his GSX-R1000 n ° 22 (Suzuki Voltcom Crescent).
Like Randy de Puniet, Sylvain Guintoli bit the Californian dust during the fourth free practice session. Our "Number One" in the discipline must be satisfied with ninth place on the grid, but can console himself by largely dominating his teammate Michael van den Mark, (15th).
Drafted during SP1, Leon Camier (MV Agusta Reparto Corse) completes the Top 10 of the American Superpole and will post tomorrow the only F4 of the field in front of the ZX-10R n ° 44 of David Salom (Kawasaki Pedercini) and the S1000RR n ° 86 by Ayrton Badovini (BMW Italia).
Leading SP1 three minutes from time, Matteo Baiocco was blocked on the threshold of SP2 by Badovini and Camier. The second rider of the Ducati Althea team is ahead of his colleague from the Ducati Barni team and the Supersport VDM world champion.
The young Spanish Roman Ramos will install his ZX-10R (Kawasaki Go Eleven) in front of our two other compatriots: Randy de Puniet on his GSX-R1000 (Suzuki Voltcom Crescent) and Christophe Ponsson on his ZX-10R (Kawasaki Pedercini).
Gabor Rizmayer (BMW Toth) and Santiago Barragan (Kawasaki Grillini) brought up the rear in SP1. Author of the 21st fastest time at the end of the third free practice session, Gianluca Vizziello (Kawasaki Grillini) knew from Saturday noon that he would complete the seventh place. Imre Toth (BMW Toth) will start alone from the last row.
See you tomorrow evening on the Site to follow the two Superbike races live (departure of the first at 8:30 p.m. French time). Stay connected !
