Six-time World Champion Jonathan Rea claimed pole position during World Superbike Superpole Qualifying Saturday at Algarve International Circuit, in Portugal. Riding his factory Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10RR, the Ulsterman lapped the 2.8-mile (4.6 km) road course in 1:39.620, which was just short of his own All-Time Lap Record of 1:36.610.

Rea’s teammate Alex Lowes was second-best with a 1:39.762, and Andrea Locatelli earned the third and final spot on the front row with a 1:39.872 on his Pata Yamaha Prometeon YZF-R1.

American Garrett Gerloff qualified 12th with a 1:40.385 on his Bonovo Action BMW M 1000 RR.
