5 second difference in pole posistion is very impressive.Heck,some of the guys n the r6 cup would have made the Bsb supersport grid with thiier times.

And just to compare...The British superbike qaulifying....

These bikes are totally stock apart from a steering damper and an end can. The series is for 16-24 year olds (I think) and it cost £20K for the year all in. For winning you get a choice of a ride in BSB superbikes or supersport with Virigin Yamaha.

As a support race for the BSB these youngsters can go damn fast and some of the moves are cool.
