Doha: Federico Caricasulo (BARDAHL Evan Bros. WorldSSP Team) secured the pole position after a thrilling Tissot Superpole session for today’s WorldSSP finale at the Losail International Circuit.
Following a tough duel, Lucas Mahias (Kawasaki Puccetti Racing) came to the fore and briefly went top, only for Caricasulo to better it, as the Italian came up from ninth to pole position.
It was more bad news for Mahias, as he had a lap time cancelled and saw him drop to fifth. Joining Caricasulo on the front are his title rivals, Randy Krummenacher and Jules Cluzel – all three WorldSSP title contenders in the top three positions.
Corentin Perolari secured fourth place with a good lap time, ahead of Mahias. Hikari Okubo (Kawasaki Puccetti Racing) was back inside the top six and completed the second row.
Outside the top ten, home-hero wildcard and Qatari Supersport Champion Saeed Al Sulaiti (QMMF Racing Team) will start at the 13th spot.
