WSS: Sofuoglu goes quickest.

Ten Kate Honda returned to the spot they have become accustomed to over the years as Kenan Sofuoglu ended the first World Supersport test of the year in charge.

Although Joan Lascorz will be credited with the fastest time of the weekend after topping the only representative session yesterday, drying conditions this afternoon ensured the competition remained tight down the field.

The usual suspects all featured towards the head of the timesheets, with four of the five manufacturers filling out the top four positions.

Triumph emerged as Honda's closest competitor this afternoon as Gianluca Nannelli hauled his BE1 Racing machine up to second fastest, albeit a good six tenths off 2007 Champion Sofuoglu.

Lascorz ended a breakthrough test for Kawasaki in another good position, the Spaniard going third, marginally behind Nannelli, while Michele Pirro represented Yamaha in fourth position.

The British contingent has good reason to be as encouraged too, with Cal Crutchlow and Eugene Laverty ending the test in fifth and seventh position, the pair sandwiching reigning champion Andrew Pitt.

Massimo Roccoli was a new face in the top ten as he continues his transition from Yamaha to Intermoto Honda in eighth, ahead of Fabien Foret in ninth and Robbin Harms in tenth, the latter making an impression on his first outing with the new Veidec Racing team.

Suzuki's sole representative, Barry Veneman, was classified in a lowly 20th, one position behind morning pace setter Anthony West on the Stiggy Honda.
