MAX IN SUPERPOLE.

Team Alstare Engineering Corona Extra Max Neukirchner managed to qualify for the 16-rider Superpole shoot-out at the Eurospeedway Lausitz and ended thirteenth fastest. He and the team were happy to have achieved their goal of taking part in Superpole, after qualifying sixteenth, and then delighted when Max managed to beat SBK regulars Chris Walker (Kawasaki), Ruben Xaus (Ducati) and Michel Fabrizio (Honda) in the process.

MAX - 13th, 1:39.322
I suppose that our goal before the weekend was to qualify for Superpole, so we certainly did that OK. My Superpole lap was not so bad and I definitely tried my best to make sure I wasn't the last of the sixteen - so that was good. Now I have two long and difficult races ahead of me tomorrow. Starting so far back on the grid is never easy, but I am not under any big pressure here as I am still learning the bike and team. Every time I go out on the bike, I learn a bit more and then we analyse the information and try and improve the next time out. So far the plan is going OK.
