Jason DiSalvo made the pole again this year at Infineon, on a totally different machine to last year. He swapped his Ducati 848 Team Latus Racing for a Triumph 675R Team Latus Racing machine.
And when asked about the differences between the two machines at this track his response was " The Triumph is so nimble down this back twisty section through 7, 8 and 9 all the way to the chicane. Also it is really balanced, this is probably one of the most creative I have been here at Infineon raceway, with corner entries, backing the thing in, sliding it, I feel like I am riding a dirt bike in my back yard. I feel like I can do anything on this bike."
DiSalvo's pole time was 1:38.159.
