Lowes seals pole position in Italy

Bogdanka PTR Honda's Sam Lowes almost half a second clear of nearest rival at Imola
Bogdanka PTR Honda's Sam Lowes has taken pole position by almost half a second for tomorrow's second round of the World Supersport Championship at Imola.

Lowes put his CBR600RR Honda on pole ahead of DeltaFin Kawasaki rider Sheridan Morais, who was 0.465s in arrears.

Morais' team-mate, Kenan Sofuoglu, who had set the pace earlier, was third quickest as he claimed a front row start, with fourth position going to Jules Cluzel, who was so impressive at Phillip Island in Australia.

Cluzel improved from 11th position during the second free practice session earlier today on his PTR Honda.

Seasoned World Supersport riders Broc Parkes (Ten Kate Honda) and French ace Fabien Foret on the Intermoto Step Kawasaki ZX-6R fill the first two positions on the second row ahead of local hero Roberto Tamburini on the Lorini Honda and fellow countryman Massimo Roccoli, who was the leading Yamaha rider on the Bike Service WTR R6.

Ex-British Superbike rider Martin Jessopp was 18th overall on the Riders PTR Honda.
