Scott storms to Queensland ASBK Supersport pole

Nicolson, Falzon and Simpson splash to opening support race wins on Saturday.

Glenn Scott rode his YRD/Yamaha to pole in Supersport.

Glenn Scott was the only Motul Supersport rider to make it into the 1:15s bracket today to secure pole position for tomorrow’s 17-lap races at the Queensland Raceway ASBK round.

Yamaha took the top two spots, with Chris Quinn close behind in a top effort on the Coopers Pale Ale machine.

Team Honda’s Josh Hook was third quickest, with points leader Mitchell Carr rounding out the front row on his Triumph.

Like the Superbike class, the leading Supersport competitors were at least five seconds off the pace on a patchy wet track this afternoon.

Ben Nicolson won the opening Akrapovic Supermoto S1/S2 race in wet conditions, Daniel Falzon staged a top recovery to win the opening Suzuki Superstock stoush and Olly Simpson was the victor of an entertaining Dunlop Superlites duel as the black clouds rolled in.

Rain forced the postponement of the first Bargain Bike Gear 250 Production race and the second Supermoto race.
