Johann Zarco (Avant-AirAsia-Ajo) took his fourth pole of the season at Phillip Island. Having led for the majority of qualifying the Frenchman suffered a high speed fall just before the end of the session when the front tucked, pitching Zarco off and causing Jakub Kornfeil to crash out whilst taking evasive action in order to avoid hitting Zarco.

Sandro Cortese (Intact-Racing Team Germany) was unable to match his fastest lap set in free practice and qualfied in second, ahead of Jonas Folger (Red Bull Ajo MotorSport) who will start from third on the grid.

Danny Kent (Red Bull Ajo MotorSport) qualified in seventh. Harry Stafford and Danny Webb will start from eighteenth and nineteenth, whilst Taylor Mackenzie qualified in twenty-eighth place.
