2009 World Supersport Kyalami FP1 Result - Ten Kate Back On Top

Free practice for the World Supersport class saw a return to the pattern we expected before the start of the season, with the Ten Kate riders at the top of the timesheets. Benefiting from being the only Supersport riders to have tested here back in December, Kenan Sofuoglu led the first half of the session, relieved by team mate Andrew Pitt in the second half of the session. Behind the Ten Kate riders, Cal Crutchlow was 3rd fastest, taking over the position from Eugene Laverty in the last third of the session. Once again, the local riders were impressive, with South African Rob Portman setting the 12th fastest time of the session. And Eugene Laverty's brother Michael had a solid debut, beating one of his team mates, but still 0.7 behind the other. Practice continues this afternoon.
