Results of the World Superbikes Superpole, updated as they happen:
Troy Corser continued in the second session of Free Practice where he left off in QP2, by heading the timesheets on the BMW S1000RR. The Australian once again finished ahead of HANNSpree Ten Kate's Johnny Rea, while Leon Haslam put the Alstare Suzuki in 3rd. BMW's progress continued in the other half of the garage as well, with Ruben Xaus ending the session in 4th, just over three tenths of a second behind Corser.
Troy Corser took provisional pole spot during the second session of qualifying for the World Superbike class, underlining the serious steps forward that BMW have made with the S1000RR. Corser's hot lap displaced Jakub Smrz from provisional pole, and bumping Ten Kate's Johnny Rea down into 3rd. Carlos Checa made a big jump forward to move up into 4th place.
The final starting grid will be settled during Superpole this afternoon.
Eugene Laverty finally broke the stranglehold which the Ten Kate Honda World Supersport team had at Assen, putting his Parkalgar Honda between Kenan Sofuoglu and Michele Pirro. Sofuoglu still has a firm grip on the class, though, leading Laverty by over half a second. Lorenzini by Leoni Kawasaki's Fabien Foret was 4th fastest in the morning session, run in cool, but sunny and dry conditions.
The Ten Kate World Supersport team are clearly determined to dominate their home round of World Supersport this weekend. After sweeping all opposition before them during the first session of free practice, Kenan Sofuoglu and Michele Pirro continued in the same vein during QP1. Sofuoglu sits on provisional pole, three tenths ahead of his teammate Pirro, but the gap to the rest has been reduced from huge to just dominant. Frenchman Fabien Foret sits in 3rd, half a second behind Sofuoglu, while Parkalgar Honda's Eugene Laverty took the final spot on the provisional front row, three quarters of a second off the pace of the young Turk.
Jakub Smrz is on provisional pole for Sunday's World Superbike races, after taking the top spot from Johnny Rea with a few minutes left in the first session of qualifying. The Pata S&G Ducati rider was helped to first spot by Rea himself, after the engine of the HANNSpree Ten Kate rider's Honda CBR1000RR blew up in a very oily mess, causing the session to be red-flagged, while the marshalls cleaned up the mess.
Troy Corser finished the session 3rd, continuing his strong start at Assen on the BMW S1000RR, while Alstare Suzuki rider - and championship leader - Leon Haslam finished in 4th, and rounds out the provisional front row.
