Lowes sets stunning pace to claim Cadwell Park pole

Sunday, August 25 2013

Alex Lowes and Samsung Honda are celebrating this afternoon after setting an impressive lap at their home round of Cadwell Park to claim the pole position for tomorrow's opening MCE Insurance British Superbike Championship race.

The final Q3 session again produced some dramatic action as Josh Brookes crashed out at Barn corner unhurt but he will start from row three in seventh position for the Tyco Suzuki team after only completing one flying lap.

Lowes had been the pace-setter in the two dry free practice sessions and came out determined in qualifying, setting the lap  and heading off the challenge from Shane 'Shakey' Byrne and James Ellison who complete the front row for the opening race.

PJ Jacobsen heads row two for Tyco Suzuki with Tommy Bridewell having another strong performance on the Halsall Racing Kawasaki as he sits fifth on row two ahead of triple champion Ryuichi Kiyonari.

Keith Farmer and Peter Hickman complete the third row for the Rapid Solicitors Kawasaki and Lloyds British GBmoto Honda teams respectively with Quattro Plant Bournemouth Kawasaki's Chris Walker completing the top ten.
