Two Superpole Wins From Two Races For Rea And KRT

Posted:

Kawasaki Racing Team rider Jonathan Rea rode his Ninja ZX-10R to his second pole position start of the season by setting a new track best of 1‰Ûª33.382 near the end of the second Superpole session at the Thai world superbike race weekend.

Having set a very fast lap in his first outing in Superpole 2, Rea was subsequently overtaken for a time but he made a successful late attempt to start from the best possible position and it put him out in front for the second time in as many WSBK meetings.

‰ÛÏIt‰Ûªs good to make it two out of two." Rea said. "We know the Kawasaki really takes profit from a soft tyre, especially the qualifier.

"My pace has been really strong all weekend in race conditions so I knew just to make clean laps in Superpole. But in every lap I made a mistake in T4 - the fast left - so I ended up much too fast and the rear came round, which is a problem I have been working on a little bit.

"We found some things after we struggled with my back brake at times but we fixed it in this final session. I was able to enter T5 much better. I made a mistake in T1 on the first flying lap and then I saw the time was P1, so I knew not to push too much and just make a clean lap next time.

"I saw a 1‰Ûª33.3 near the end of the session and I thought it may not be enough, so I tried again on the third lap with a qualifier, but already the tyre had had enough.‰Û
