XAVI HAPPY TO BE ON THE FRONT ROW.

Team Alstare Suzuki Corona Extra rider Xavier Simeon posted the fourth fastest time in qualifying in Brands Hatch today and will start tomorrow's 14-lap race from the front row of the grid. Claudio Corti (Yamaha) put in a quick lap of 1:29.293 in final qualifying to take pole position, with Niccolo Canepa (Ducati) second and Matteo Baiocco ((Yamaha) third.

Xavi - 4th, 1:29.969

There were no big problems today and I'm happy to be on the front row. The only problem I did have was in the morning when I was on an 'old' tyre and the feeling was not so good. When we changed to a fresh tyre, the feeling was much better and I was more comfortable with the bike. Pole position would've been nice, but it's the race that counts and I think I am in a good position to make a good start and a good result. My objective is the same as it was when I arrived here - to be on the podium! I like this track and, after the way things have gone so far, I think a podium is a realistic goal.
