THIRD ROW FOR JAVI.

Team Alstare Suzuki Corona Extra rider Javi Fores was unable to improve on yesterday's lap time and so will start tomorrow's 23-lap race from the third row. A problem with the rear suspension today prevented Javi from moving up the grid, but he is confident of a good result as long as he can get a good start. Frenchman Sebastien Charpentier (Honda) will start from pole position, despite failing to improve on his yesterday's lap time. Alongside him on the front row will be his team mate Katsuaki Fujiwara, Fabien Foret (Honda) and Kevin Curtain (Yamaha).

JAVIER FORES - 11th, 1:40.220

I don't think we were able to improve the bike since yesterday and that really prevented me from going any faster. We will try a little suspension change in the morning warm-up and hopefully that will allow me to lap a bit quicker. But I am quite positive because I feel I can put in good laps on the race tyres. The third row is not good, but if I can get a good start I think I can fight for a top six place. That is my aim and that is what I try to my best to do.

Final qualifying 1 Charpentier (F-Honda) 1:38.351, 2 Fujiwara (J-Honda) 1:38.634, 3 Foret (F-Honda) 1:38.884, 4 Curtain (Aus-Yamaha) 1:39.083, 5 Fabrizio (I-Honda) 1:39.449, 6 Parkes (Aus-Yamaha) 1:39.605, 7 Carrasco (E-Yamaha) 1:39.751, 8 Stigefelt (S-Honda) 1:39.953, 9 Chambon (F-Honda) 1:40.121, 10 Veneman (NL-Suzuki) 1:40.135, 11 FORES (E-ALSTARE SUZUKI CORONA EXTRA) 1:40.220,
