San Juan - Argentina

Race resume

While the track proved to be clean and in much better condition than the yesterday, the afternoon heat severely hampered the riders, relaying them to nearly 2 seconds of their morning times. Corentin Perolari led this Superpole from one end to the other, with a masterful hand. The only rider below the 1’46 , the  French southern rider signed his first pole position of his career in the World Supersport Championship!

Jules Cluzel, who for a long time was second, was unable to complete his ideal lap on this difficult track. At the slightest trajectory error, the risk of falling is high, which requires automatic gas cutting. He still finished in a good 3rd place, giving him all his chances for tomorrow’s race.

Corentin Perolari: “I couldn’t have dreamed better! After so many years I can now play the leading roles in a world championship! Tomorrow’s race will be a long one, and it will take a lot of precision to get to the finish line. I am now totally focused on trying to stay on one of the steps of the podium. »

Jules Cluzel: “It’s a good qualification. We are well positioned for tomorrow’s race. I have a good race pace that can allow me to aim for the first places. I also congratulate Corentin for his pole, I am very happy for him, he deserves it! »

See you tomorrow at 14.15 (local time) live on Supersport.
