Recently-crowned Supersport champion Tom Toparis has earned pole position at Sydney Motorsport Park’s seventh and final round of the 2019 Motul Pirelli Australian Superbike Championship (ASBK).

The Landbridge Yamaha rider continued his dominance by setting the fastest lap of 1m32.739s in the Q1 session, where majority of the field lodged their best times under cooler track conditions.

WorldSSP300 regular Tom Edwards (Yamaha) was second on the qualifying timesheets with a best lap of 1m33.054s, while Jack Passfield locked out the top three with a 1m33.548s time.

Rounding out the top five was Callum Spriggs (Yamaha) and Aidan Hayes (Yamaha), as positions six through to 10 were taken out by Broc Pearson (Yamaha), Nic Liminton (Yamaha), Oli Bayliss (Cube Racing), Jack Hyde (Yamaha) and Rhys Belling (Yamaha).

Hunter Ford (Yamaha) topped qualifying in the Supersport 300 category, edging out Max Stauffer (Yamaha) and Senna Agius (Kawasaki), while the Yamaha R3 Cup saw Ford once again emerge fastest over Stauffer and Zac Levy (Yamaha).

In the Oceania Junior Cup, it was Marianos Nikolis who claimed pole position over Cormac Buchanan (Yamaha) and Archie McDonald (Yamaha).
