Team Alstare Suzuki Corona Extra rider Javi Fores experienced set-up problems today and ended with the ninth fastest time in qualifying. He should've improved his time in the afternoon session but an off-track excursion (when he lost five minutes due to an over-zealous marshal) caused him to lose the chance of setting a quick time in the closing five minutes. Michel Fabrizio (Honda) took pole position, ahead of Kevin Curtain (Yamaha), Fabien Foret (Honda) and Broc Parkes (Yamaha).

Javi - 9th, 1:44.905
Nothing seemed to right for me today and I had problems with the settings for most of the time. I also tried different tyres, but did not find any good solutions. In the afternoon I made a mistake and went straight on at a corner and then into the gravel. I tried to rejoin the track, but a marshal held me up and I lost a lot of time. By the time I got back to the pits, there were less then five minutes of final qualifying remaining and I could not put in a faster lap. Once again, I am going to need a good start if I am to have a good result, but that's what I'll be chasing.
