Mogeda on pole as Ercolani and Ieraci suffer crashes in WorldSSP300 Superpole

A manic Tissot Superpole session for the FIM Supersport 300 World Championship saw thrills, spills and everything in between. Ultimately, the Friday afternoon session saw Daniel Mogeda (Team #109 Retro Traffic Kawasaki) qualify on top. The Championship leader continues to assert his dominance over the rest of the grid by qualifying on pole for Race 1.


This pole position, which just so happened to be Mogeda’s first ever pole position in the class, was matched only by the impressive form of Indonesia’s Aldi Satya Mahendra (Team BrCorse). Qualifying in P2 saw Mahendra match his best ever Superpole result (after Assen). Mogeda and Mahendra were joined on the front row by Spaniard Marc Garcia (KOVE Racing Team), who was promoted to the front row after review at the end of the session.


Just behind Garcia, the second row was very close. Spaniard Inigo Iglesias Bravo (Fusport-RT Motorsports by SKM-Kawasaki) spearheads the second row, setting a time of 1’49.597s. Just behind him was fellow Spanish rider Julio Garcia Gonzalez (KOVE Racing Team), and they were joined in completing the second row by Indonesian rider Galang Hendra Pratama.

BEST OF THE REST: Top ten set for Saturday

The remainder of the top ten for Saturday’s race was also determined during the Superpole race. David Salvador (MS Racing) secured P7, whilst Italian Elia Bartolini (Yamaha Motoxracing WorldSSP300 Team) secured eighth. P9 and P10 were completed by Czech Republic rider Petr Svoboda (Fusport-RT Motorsports by SKM-Kawasaki) and reigning Champion Jeffrey Buis (Freudenberg KTM-PALIGO Racing) respectively.

EVENTFUL SESSION: Multiple crashes

Outside of the race order being set for Saturday, Friday’s Superpole session was eventful for different reasons. Two-time race winner at Misano, Bruno Ieraci (Team ProDina Kawasaki) suffered a crash that ensured he will start from towards the back end of the grid, whilst Emiliano Ercolani (Yamaha Motoxracing WorldSSP 300 Team) suffered a wicked highside that left him stranded in the middle of the track.
