    Nice one Rea - good to see him get a postive result. Smrz has a history of great qualifying, hopefully he and Corser can go a full race distance without fading or crashing. Anyone in the top 11 spots has the talent to win at Assen (and Nori in 15th!), should be some great SBK races later tonight (my timezone).

    I wonder how long before the factory Ducati boys demand 1300cc motors:D They've seemingly lost their way with Davide Tardozzi gone.

    Superpole quotes from the top 4:

    Jonathan Rea: “I am happy and excited to have won Superpole. I can’t quite believe that this is my first ever world championship pole, so it is good to win it. On a serious note, tomorrow is raceday and there will be at least three or four guys who have good pace, so it will be 22 long laps in each race.”

    Jakub Smrz: “Practice and qualifying has gone pretty well, always in the first few places, and we all did a good job. The set-up and tyre choice is good but for sure in the race other guys will be very strong and I think it will be a tough race. A few things will depend on temperature tomorrow.”

    Troy Corser: “This is my best qualifying for BMW so far, so I am pretty happy. The engineers have done a great job away from the track, we have done a fair bit of testing and it has definitely improved the bike. I feel more comfortable on the bike now and when you feel comfortable you push more, and can go a bit faster. I am looking forward to the race.”

    Leon Haslam: “I am happy to have a front row start, because this weekend had been pretty tough and Jonathan has been fast - all the guys in front of me have. It has been a case for us of finding a set-up not just for a fast lap but for the race as well. The positions have been changing in practice but I have been happy with my lap times on race tyres.

    Cheers.

    Oh yes! Northern Irish triple at Assen! Rea with two and Laverty in the supersport race. Awesome weekend, it feels good to be Northern Irish now (untill I look outside and see the weather again of course) Some great racing, like Assen always provides. Hope Camier is ok after that big crash!

    Someone remind me why we bother to watch MotoGP? That was an awesome display of riding by all the competitors, with the second SBK race being incredible.

    Biggeste surprises were Corser and the BMW coming on strong (BMW are 3 wins from 3 starts in Superstock), and
    Haga and Fabrizio being nowhere all weekend.

    Factory Xerox Ducati team are looking like a rabble, 10th and 13th in race one, some way behind 3 privateer 1098R's. Fabrizio led home in race two by a privateer (Scassa) by 8 over seconds with 3 gents who finished in 6th to 8th place 20 seconds ahead of the factory bike all on privateer 1098R's. When was the last time the factory Ducati's were dominated by privateer Ducati's?

    Cheers.

    WSB Monza: Crutchlow on top in first qualifying

    By Michael Guy -
    World Superbikes
    07 May 2010 17:07

    Cal Crutchlow fired his Sterilgarda Yamaha to provisional pole position for the fifth round of the World Superbike Championship at Monza. After heavy rain before the start of the session riders were forced to use wets or intermediate tyres to begin with, but as the track dried slicks were fitted and the lap times tumbled.

    With only the first chicane still wet at the end of the session, Crutchlow got to within one second of his free practice lap time set in dry conditions.
    He said: “We’re still struggling for grip, but we’ve ended up topping both sessions so it’s not too bad. There are changes we need to make to the bike like the gearing. I started the session on intermediates and then went out on slicks from the morning. The last seven laps were on a new set of slicks.”

    Jonathan Rea backed up his free practice performance to secure second place onboard his Hannspree Ten Kate Honda. Rea used just two sets of tyres all day and made just one minor height change during both sessions.

    Michel Fabrizio secured third position despite being 11KPH slower than Corser’s BMW through the speed trap. Corser continued his strong run of form to claim fourth ahead of championship leader Leon Haslam riding the Alstare Suzuki.

    James Toseland remained up beat at the potential of his Sterilgarda Yamaha despite finishing in ninth with Tom Sykes holding station in 11th and Shane Byrne in 18th.

    Biaggi finally claims first WSBK pole

    Max Biaggi claimed a long-awaited first World Superbike pole position on home soil at Monza after capitalising on his Aprilia's superior straight-line speed.

    Having broken the speed record for a Superbike during the free practice session prior to Superpole, when he touched 330kph (205mph), Biaggi would produce an identical feat during the deciding session to keep his rivals at bay.

    His speed advantage proved to be a crucial bonus for Biaggi, who lost two tenths with an error into the Ascari chicane, thus allowing Cal Crutchlow to get very close to him with his last gasp effort.

    In the end, Crutchlow would fall just three hundredths short of securing a third pole position of the season, allowing Biaggi, who has 56 grand prix pole positions to his name, to claim his first ever spot at World Superbike level since making his debut in 2007.

    An exciting, and occasionally surprising Superpole session, Crutchlow was able to squeeze between Biaggi and Michel Fabrizio, the Ducati rider doing a good job of turning his fortunes around on what was otherwise another difficult day for the Italian manufacturer on home ground.

    Jonathan Rea completes the front row after just edging out Leon Haslam, the championship leader getting frustrated by traffic when his first flying lap was spoiled by over-shooting the chicane, while James Toseland did him no favours when the Suzuki man caught his countryman cruising on the racing line out of Ascari.

    Toseland, meanwhile, reached SP3 for the first time since the Phillip Island season opener, although he was only good enough for seventh once there, the Yamaha man being sandwiched by the two surprise packages of the session, Ruben Xaus and Tom Sykes.

    Only the second time Xaus has reached the final qualifying phase during his tenure with BMW, sixth is also the first time he has out-qualified Troy Corser since the second round of the 2009 World Superbike Championship in Qatar.

    There were firsts for Sykes too after he hauled the unfaniced Kawasaki into the top eight for the first time since joining the manufacturer. Additionally, this is the first time a ‘green’ bike has made it to SP3 since last year’s Miller Motorsport Park round.

    With Xaus and Sykes up inside the top eight, there were a few surprise omissions from SP3, most notably Assen podium sitter Leon Camier, who looked poised to join his Aprilia team-mate in the top eight when he lost the front-end of the RSV-4 on the exit of Ascari. He will start 13th.
    Carlos Checa and Corser were casualties too, the former missing the cut for the first time since joining the Althea Ducati team.

    Indeed, it was a tough day all round for Ducati, who - beyond Fabrizio - had to rely on Luca Scassa to ensure two of its 1198s would squeeze into the top ten, the Italian managing his and the Supersonic team’s best-ever WSBK grid position in the process.

    With Checa down in 11th, Shane Byrne and Noriyuki Haga could only secure 15th and 16th on the grid, the latter once again being let down by his increasingly abysmal single-lap form.
    Prior to that, Ducati lost another strong bet in Jakub Smrz, the Czech rider crashing heavily during SP1 at Ascari to destroy his number one bike. Despite making it back out on track on his spare machine, he couldn’t quite progress beyond 17th place.

    Chris Vermeulen, meanwhile, will start 18th on the second Kawasaki, ahead of Lorenzo Lanzi and Matteo Baiocco.

    Fabrizio on top as Ducati dominate

    14 May 2010 14:25

    Xerox Ducati rider Michel Fabrizio set the fastest time of the opening free practice session at Kyalami this afternoon.
    The Italian rider who finished second in both races last year to his team-mate Noriyuki Haga set a best time of 1.39.081.

    The lap time was nearly two seconds off Ben Spies’ 2009 qualifying best, mainly due to the dirty track.
    Fast qualifier Jacob Smrz (B&G Ducati) claimed second spot with Carlos Checa and Shane Byrne in fifth and sixth places respectively (Althea Ducati) making it a good day for Ducati who were always expected to be fast at the low grip bumpy, Kyalami circuit.

    Monza race winner Max Biaggi made a surprisingly fast start to secure third place. Biaggi is traditionally a slow starter but spent the 45 minute session close to or at the top of the time sheets onboard his rapid Aprilia RSV4.

    2009 Kyalami podium man Jonathan Rea took sixth with fellow Brits Cal Crutchlow and Leon Haslam in seventh and eighth place.
    Noriyuki Haga ran as high as fourth in the session but slipped to tenth at the finish.
    First qualifying gets underway this afternoon at 15.00 local time.

    2nd race was excellent. Very much becoming a Haslam vs Biaggi championship.

    Rumours abound Troy Bayliss will be coming back very soon, after a very positive private test session. With Haga a shadow of himself and Fabrizio consistently inconsistent, Bayliss coming back would be excellent news for Xerox Ducati.
