XAVI ON FRONT ROW.

Italian Ducati rider Nicola Canepa set the fastest lap in qualifying and will start on pole position in tomorrow's 14-lap at Silverstone. Second on the grid is Davide Giugliano (Kawasaki), with series leader Xavier Simeon (Alstare Suzuki Corona Extra) third and Andrea Antonelli ((Honda) fourth. Today's qualifying took place in the wet, so it was yesterday's dry times that determined the formation of the grid.

XAVI - 3rd, 1:34.630
Today my bike worked very well in the wet and I was happy because it felt so good. I concentrated hard and my time of 1:49.097 was the best time - over a second quicker than anybody else. I wanted some dry track time today, so I could work on my bike set-up, but it just didn't happen. I hope that the warm-up and the race will be dry tomorrow because the racing will be much better. I have a good points advantage in the series, but I want to win the race tomorrow and extend my series lead.

Final qualifying
1 Canepa (I-Ducati) 1:33.764, 2 Giugliano (I-Kawasaki) 1:34.554, 3 XAVIER SIMEON (B-Alstare Suzuki Corona Extra) 1;34.630, 4 Antonelli (I-Honda) 1;34.646, 5 Colatosti (I-Kawasaki) 1:35.269, 6 Costantini (I-Honda),
