Tuesday, 17 December, SHARJAH (UAE): Defending world champion Kevin Reiterer will start moto 1 of the UIM-ABP Aquabike Grand Prix of Sharjah from pole position after setting the pace in today’s official qualifying.
The Victory Team rider topped the times sheets in both sessions with his opening run and shaved almost four seconds off his Q1 time with the flick of a switch to post a best lap of 1:42.37s to take his third pole of the season.
Stian Schjetlein headed a trio of Norwegian riders all with the possibility of a year-end-podium but was 3.76s off the pole-sitter, Daniel Svae Andersen’s 1:46.37 putting him over a second ahead of Ulrik Berntsen.
It was not a good afternoon for Barnabas Szabo who sits in third place in the championship standings, failing to make the 10 boat cut into Q2 and will start moto1 from P11 of the 18 rider line up.
