Front Row Start for Emmett

MonsterMob Ducati Superbike rider Sean Emmett will start on the front row of the grid for the penultimate round of the Think! British Superbike Championship at Oulton Park tomorrow.

The 34 year old Londoner set fourth fastest time aboard the MonsterMob 999 F04 to give himself a great chance of repeating his Cadwell Park rostrum in tomorrow's two races.

"It's good to be back on the front row. Its amazing how things have turned around from when we were here last time around, we are 1.5 seconds quicker than we were then in the dry. The forecast for tomorrow is wet and I go well in the wet anyway but it's nice to know we can go well in the dry also. I'm looking forward to the race" said Emmett.

Meanwhile Supersport rider Michael Laverty will have to start from row three of the grid having posted eleventh fastest time on the 749 Ducati.

The 23 year old from Toomebridge spent the session dialling in the bike in readiness for tomorrow's races.

"I struggled a bit getting on the pace with having no free practice yesterday. I wasn't feeling as comfortable as normal but got it closer at the end. It's disappointing but I know I can do a lot more in the race tomorrow. I just need to get a good start" said Laverty.

Team owner Paul Bird said the following:

"I'm pleased with Sean getting a front row start and hopefully he can have a couple of good rides tomorrow. Michael has already won from row three of the grid before so that's a possibility also."
