Magny Cours WSBK 2010

Cal Crutchlow has put his Sterilgarda Yamaha on pole at the last World Superbike round of 2010 at Magny Cours in France. Wanting to leave WSBK on a high before he makes the jump to MotoGP next year, Crutchlow mere hundreths quicker than Suzuki’s Sylvain Guintoli, with Jakub Smrz in 3rd on his Aprilia..

Cal Crutchlow: “It’s nice to be going into my last World Superbike race before I head off, with a pole position. It’s a good reward for Yamaha, they have put their trust and faith in me so to give them a pole is good and I want to make it a race win tomorrow that’s for sure. We’ve struggled with a few things over the weekend, but maybe found something in the Superpole. We’ll see tomorrow, it’s going to be entertaining!”

Sylvain Guintoli: “What I wanted was the pole but unfortunately Cal just managed to get it ahead of me. Today was great, this morning when I was quickest in Q2 was good and I’m looking forward to tomorrow because I’ve been so close to the podium so many times this year. I really wish I can get my first one here in front of the French public, I’m going to push hard tomorrow, my race pace is good and I feel confident.”

Jakub Smrz: “It was a really good day for me today and I am happy because in the last five races I have been three times on the first row. Unfortunately it’s the end of the season and we started with the Aprilia late and I didn’t achieve anything really good this season but let’s hope for a good race this weekend and a better start next year!”
