Integro Yamaha’s Jack Kennedy dominated yet another Dickies British Supersport qualifying as he notched up his 10th pole position on the bounce.
The Dubliner immediately hit the lead from the off and was never headed as he dipped under lap record pace, clocking a 1’28.512 to go a quarter of a second quicker than Luke Stapleford’s old mark.
Kennedy’s only slip up was a crash at Charlie’s with less than five minutes to go, but it wasn’t enough to allow anyone else to come close.
Kovara Projects’ GP2 front-runner Kyle Ryde could only come within half a second of the Irishman as he secured second on the grid, splitting the two Integro Yamahas as Brad Jones clinched third.
The GP2 machines of JPL Racing’s Josh Owens and ABM Quattro man Mason Law lead off row two ahead of EHA Racing’s former champ Alastair Seeley.
Hisc rider Charlie Nesbitt, SGR’s Tom Oliver and Ashcourt Racing rider Lee Johnston round out row three.
