First And Second Row Starts For Sofuoglu And Krummenacher


After a busy Superpole 2 session at Imola Kawasaki Puccetti Racing riders Kenan Sofuoglu and Randy Krummenacher placed second and fourth respectively and will now start from strong grid placings close to the top of a field of 37 riders.

On a dry track surface the competition was hot for final start positions for Sunday’s 17-lap race, which will be the fifth of the 2016 season. Sofuoglu was looking to improve his best lap time to take pole but was caught out by when he came around to start his final lap and missed his chance to have his fastest lap count.

Always a rider aiming for a front row start as it puts him in an ideal position for raceday itself, Sofuoglu is already satisfied with his overall pace. He feels ready to push himself to try for his second race win of the season on Sunday.

Similar to Sofuoglu Krummenacher, the championship leader after four rounds, is looking for his second race win of the year. He found a different feel than he expected from his rear tyre in Superpole, however, when he took to the track for one final push for a grid position.

He still put in a good Superpole qualifying time and went fourth on the grid as a result. Randy worked on race pace once he had learned the layout of the complex and undulating Imola circuit, which he rates very highly in terms of its layout. This weekend is his first race experience of Imola.

With changeable weather forecast for Sunday the possibility of a wet race remains, which will mean some sharp and decisive work will be needed to prepare for the 17-lap WorldSSP race. If it is dry both Kawasaki Puccetti Racing riders are confident in their current set-ups allowing them to compete strongly for the podium places.
