SUPERMAX!

Team Alstare Engineering Corona Extra rider Max Neukirchner rode a superb Superpole today and ended with the seventh fastest time - well ahead of many of the factory riders. Max's lap followed good progress in qualifying and his increasing understanding of the Alstare GSX-R1000 K6. Team Alstare Suzuki Corona Extra rider Troy Corser took Superpole with a time of 1:39.147, over one and a half seconds under the current lap record. Second was James Toseland (Honda), with Lorenzo Lanzi (Ducati) third.

MAX - 7th, 1:39.961
Today was a good one for us and I was very happy with my Superpole lap - and regular qualifying and practice was not so bad either. Each time I get on the bike I learn something more and I think we are improving bit by bit for sure. The set-up of the bike felt quite good today and now I hope I can take advantage of my good grid position and get a couple of good results. I certainly want to finish both races tomorrow after last weekend's disaster.
