Galang Hendra Pratama Storms to Pole Position in Assen
Galang Hendra Pratama will start tomorrow's WorldSSP300 from pole position, after an impressive qualifying performance at a bitterly cold Assen today. It was a masterful display from the young Indonesian rider, who was just a little surprised to experience snow for the first time as he arrived in parc fermé to claim his pole position watch!
Andy Verdoia, who was the highest placed R3 bLU cRU Challenge finisher in fifth place last time out in Aragon, was the only other bLU cRU rider to guarantee his place on the grid for tomorrow’s 12-lap WorldSSP300 by qualifying toiday in 21st position.
Jacopo Facco, Beatriz Neila and Kevin Sabatucci all qualified outside the top 30 and will have to fight for the last six grid positions in the Last Chance Race, which will run tomorrow morning after being postponed due to adverse weather conditions this afternoon.
