2022 Catalunya World Supersport Superpole Result: Rain In Sector Two

World Supersport Superpole qualifying was twenty minutes with warnings of rain, forcing everyone out early to try to get a decent lap in before conditions got too wet to record a good lap on slick tyres.

Lorenzo Baldassarri crashed out on turn twelve on his out lap without setting a qualifying time, riding his bike on the service lanes to get back to the garage. Dominique Aegerter knocked Can Oncu off the top with a 1'46.505 on his first lap, but a lap later, he had to concede the provisional pole to Oncu who set a 1'45.544, a third of a second quicker than Aegerter's second lap. 

Aegerter's third lap, a 1'44.946, put him ahead of Oncu by six tenths of a second. Federico Caricasulo and Andy Verdoia were third and fourth quickest as riders started to put in. The rain held off, in spite of drops landing in sector two, and with five minutes remaining, Lorenzo Baldassarri set out on a quickly fixed bike.

Glenn van Straalen, after losing a lap time for exceeding track limits, jumped up to second quickest as Niki Tuuli saved a slide on the last corner to improve his time. Lorenzo Baldassarri set a time that put him in provisional seventh place, but Dominique Aegerter slapped down an incredible 1'43.983 lap, a new lap record, a second quicker than second-placed Can Oncu's fastest lap. Lorenzo Baldassarri clawed his way to fourth place as the flag came out, but he was over a second slower than Dominique Aegerter's pole position.

Dominique Aegerter took pole position ahead of Can Oncu and Federico Caricasulo, but Lorenzo Baldassarri recovered from a crash to head the second row, alongside Adrian Huertas and Raffaele De Rosa.
