Fresh from his surprise win in the opening round of the 2016 World Supersport Championship, Randy Krummenacher continued his good form at the start of round two in Thailand by topping first free practice.

Though a new venue for the Swiss man, whose win in Phillip Island came on his World SSP debut, the Puccetti Kawasaki rider swept to the top of the timesheets at the Chang International Circuit with his final effort of 1min 39.933s.

It was enough to displace local favourite Ratthapong Wilairot, the wild-card rider back in action and looking to emulate the success of his brother Ratthapark, who scored famous win on a Honda last season.

PJ Jacobsen followed up in third, ahead of leading MV Agusta rider Jules Cluzel, while CIA Insurance Honda Brits Kyle Smith and Luke Stapleford were a solid fifth and sixth best having locked out the top two positions for a time.

Privateer MV Agusta riders Nico Terol and Alex Baldolini followed up in seventh and eighth, ahead of another wild-card Decha Kraisart and Gino Rea. Title favourite Kenan was a low key 13th fastest, while Phillip Island standout Federico Caricasulo was down in 23rd and British hope Kyle Ryde 15th after technical issues.
