Mallory Park British Supersport: Glen Richards provisional pole

Published: 28 June 2008

Glen Richards has put himself in provisional pole position for tomorrow’s 28-lap British Supersport race at Mallory Park.

The MAP Embassy Triumph rider set a 57.572 in this morning’s session, good enough to put him fifteenth fastest in the British Superbike session.

The Aussie is gunning for only his second pole and second win of the season, despite being 30 points clear in the championship ahead of Steve Brogan.

Second fastest in the morning session is Gearlink Kawasaki’s Chris Martin who’s continuing to impress on the factory backed Kawasaki ZX-6R.

And man with the wholeshot in the dry yesterday, James Westmoreland, set a time good enough to go third quickest today.

The second British Supersport Qualifying session kicks off at 15.40 this afternoon.
