Sylvain Guintoli has just signed his first Superpole of the 2013 season on the Laguna Seca circuit! The official Aprilia rider will sit ahead of his big championship rivals, Sykes and Laverty, for this Saturday night’s race.

The n ° 50 of the official Aprilia team did not spare himself this afternoon – this evening in France – on the demanding Laguna Seca circuit, and it is to be hoped that his final assault will not have damaged the endurance of his shoulder still weakened because the Frenchie is aiming for victory, from tonight: 23h (French time) for the first race !
 
Ejected from the front row by an incredible Niccolo Canepa two minutes from the end of the last Superpole session (SP3), Sylvain Guintoli managed his session beautifully and landed the American Superpole in a final cannon lap in 1 ‘22.683.

This is the first pole position for "Guinters" this season and the second of his career after his "" de Monza last year. Thanks to her, our favorite Frenchie marks her two main rivals in the championship – Sykes and Laverty, who else? – who will accompany him on the first line in a few moments.

Author of the double during the last Turkish event – -, Eugene Laverty got a little carried away and finished the helmet in the gravel pit. Its mechanics will have to work to restore the unique RSV4 n ° 58 part in a small series of barrels..

The second row is dominated by the impressive Canepa which straddles the United States. The Italian can already be delighted to be part of the very closed circle of World Superbike riders to have gone under "minute twenty-three" on the Californian track.

Chaz Davies and Davide Giugliano will join Niccolo on the second row riding their respective BMW Italia Goldbet and Aprilia Althea. These two outsiders are preparing to play the role of referee in the title fight between Guinto, Sykes, Laverty … and Melandri !

The famous n ° 33 only signed the seventh fastest time in SP3 but that should not prevent him from fighting for the podium, even victory! The current fourth in the championship will be an excellent hare for our second representative Jules Cluzel (Suzuki Fixi Crescent) and for Ayrton Badovini (Ducati Alstare).

Roger Hayden and Danny Eslick will install their GSX-R1000 at the top of the fourth row. The two colts of Michael Jordan will try to integrate the Top 10 in the race to properly celebrate the 10 years of the Superbike team of "His Airness". Deprived by his Fireblade of a final lap in SP2, Leon Haslam must be content with twelfth place on the grid.

Ranked fifth on his first WSBK starting grid two weeks ago in Istanbul, Toni Elias stumbled in SP1 at Laguna Seca, posting the poorest time of the session. The 2010 Moto2 world champion will start behind Mark Aitchison (Kawasaki Pedercini) and Michel Fabrizio, replacing the brand new dad () Jonathan Rea at Honda Pata.

David Salom within the official Kawasaki team did not have the opportunity to participate in the Superpole event and will start from 16th place. The Spanish driver is ahead on the sixth row Blake Young, replacing – – Leon Camier at Suzuki Fixi Crescent, and Federico Sandi (Kawa ‘Pedercini).

On the last row of the American grid will climb Vittorio Iannuzzo (BMW Grillini Dentalmatic) and Glenn Allerton, wildcard of the BMW Next Gen Motorsports team. Be careful, stay tuned because the first Superbike race will be launched tonight at 11pm. The second will take place tomorrow evening, same time … same website !
