Brno WSS: Crutchlow takes comfortable pole from Laverty
Cal Crutchlow completed his domination of Free Practice and Qualifying by securing pole position for tomorrows 18 lap World Supersport race. Onboard the factory Yamaha R6 Crutchlow came within 6/100ths of a second to breaking into the 2m 01s with his lap time nearly a second faster than last years best.
Crutchlow’s closest rival was once again Eugene Laverty who over the course of the weekend is gradually creeping closer to the front, but still sits 0.848 seconds off the lead.
Kawasaki man Joan Lascorz battled with Laverty for second to finish third ahead of his Kawasaki team-mate Katsuaki Fujiwara in fourth.
Triumph men Gianluca Nannelli and Garry McCoy claimed fifth and sixth with the biggest shock the disappointing performances of the previously dominant Ten Kate Honda squad.
Reigning champion Andrew Pitt could only manage 24th fastest after crashing on Friday, with pre race contender Kenan Sofuoglu in 14th place.
Michael Laverty claimed 20th with team-mate Sam Lowes 27th.
