WorldSSP300: Ton Kawakami Claims First Pole of the Season

Kawakami sits just 0.004s ahead of Adrian Huertas in second.

The Aragon front row is covered by just 0.32 of a second, in the closest World Supersport 300 Super Pole to date. Huertas sits just behind the poleman, while Friday’s frontman Unai Orradre takes third.

The Kawakami brothers took the lead in the session with 8 minutes remaining, with Ton in provisional Pole. However, while the number 87 rider continued to solidify his lead with a time of 2:06.498, Meikon fell down the order in the final minutes, and will start the races from P6.

Despite Huertas’ best efforts at the end of the session, the very busy circuit meant that the Spaniard lost ground in the final sector, and stuck with P2 at the flag. Although missing out, this will be Huertas’ first front row start in the series, and will be one to watch off the line.

Tom Booth-Amos had a flying last lap, and was able to grab P4 from Inigo Iglesias at the chequered flag.

Samuel Di Sora will start Row 3, ahead of Jeffrey Buis and Bruno Ieraci, as Victor Rodrigo Nunez rounds out the Top 10.

The front 13 riders were covered by just under a second in Super Pole, as Ana Carrasco sits just 0.944s from Pole in P13.

With the grid so close in SuperPole, the races will be the ones to watch for sure!

World Supersport 300’s Race 1 will begin today at 12:45 Local Time (GMT +2).
