Cluzel set a time of 1m30.270s astride a Yamaha R6, beating GRT rider Lucas Mahias by 0.195s in an tightly-contested qualifying session.

Thomas Gradinger managed to progress to Superpole 2 on the sister NRT bike, but could qualify only 11th, 1.256s behind his teammate.

Cluzel and NRT, which has stepped to World Supersport only this year, head to tomorrow’s race with the momentum of back-to-back wins in the Netherlands and Italy.

Cluzel sits fourth in the riders’ standing while NRT holds the third spot in the teams’ table, only four points behind the championship-leading GRT team.
