Webster And Woodhouse On Sidecar Pole At Monza

By Gelnn LeSanto <BR> <BR>Steve Webster and passenger Paul Woodhouse clinched pole position for Sunday's Superside (sidecar) race at Monza with a stunning Superpole lap at 1:55.233, shaving more than a second off their best qualifying time. This feat is all the more spectacular when you consider that Woodhead should be resting in bed following recent operations to fix a serious problem with his right knee. His doctor had ordered him to spend six weeks giving the knee "total rest." <BR> <BR>Webster's arch-rival Klaffenbock finished 1.5 seconds back in third place while his former team-mate Steinhausen was closer with a time of 1:55.992 to take second on the grid.<BR> <BR> <BR>Superside Championship, Monza, Italy.<BR>Superpole Times<BR><BR>1.
