Suriano Triumph rider Alex Baldolini saved the best for last moving from 9th to the provisional front row of the grid in the opening qualifying session of the World Supersport Championship at Silverstone with his very last lap.
Having only completed 5 laps in the morning's Free Practice session due to a gearbox problem, the rider from Italy (who achieved a maiden WSS podium at Misano) made the most of the drying track to finish in 4th position. "I am happy especially after the problems this morning. The conditions were not ideal and I caught some traffic in the final sector which cost me a couple of tenths so overall I am satisfied" commented Alex.
Final qualifying for the British round of the World Supersport Championship takes place later today.
