Reigning Dickies British Supersport Champion Jack Kennedy bagged pole position for today’s sprint race at Oulton Park, gapping title challenger Alastair Seeley by four-tenths of a second with GP2 man Kyle Ryde in third.
Integro Yamaha’s Kennedy was never challenged for top spot, slowly upping his pace from a 1’38.286 to a 1’37.407 before dropping under the 1’37s barrier for a 1’36.992 which was enough for another pole.
Seeley, on the EHA Yamaha, had a scrap on his hands with two GP2 riders. Mason Law shot into second place early doors before Seeley found a 1’37.414 to secure second on the grid.
Ryde put in a 1’37.525 to trail the Irishman by just a tenth and complete the first row with Law heading row two.
Kennedy’s team-mate Brad Jones finished in fifth place with Richard Kerr in sixth, Harry Truelove in seventh and Charlie Nesbitt in eighth place.
James Westmoreland will be disappointed with ninth place, one ahead of Tom Oliver who completes the top ten.
