Leon Haslam (Aprilia Racing Team – Red Devils) will start tomorrow’s two WorldSBK races of the third round of the eni FIM Superbike World Championship from Pole Position. A lap time of 1.49.664s, the fastest of the weekend so far and the quickest ever for a superbike on the new MotorLand Aragon configuration, left the Englishman 0.033s ahead of his nearest rivals Chaz Davies (Aruba.it Racing - Ducati Superbike Team), with Tom Sykes (Kawasaki Racing Team) who will join him on the front row. For Haslam this is his first Pole Position since Phillip Island in 2010 and only the second of his career.

Second and third row

Row two will see championship leader Jonathan Rea (Kawasaki Racing Team) aboard his Ninja ZX-10, Xavi Fores who continues his impressive debut weekend on the second of the Aruba.it Ducati Superbike Team) and Ayrton Badovini.

The third row was decided in the final seconds of the session, with Jordi Torres (Aprilia Racing Team – Red Devils) taking 7th. He will start alongside Alex Lowes (Voltcom Crescent Suzuki) and Nico Terol (Althea Racing Ducati).

Five manufacturers inside the top-10

Leandro Mercado (Barni Racing Ducati), Michael van der Mark (Pata Honda World Superbike Team) and David Salom (Team Pedercini Kawasaki) complete the top-12 in a grid that sees five manufacturers inside the top-10.

Earlier, Badovini and Lowes were the two riders to progress from Superpole 1 into the final 15-minute shoot-out, as reigning Champion Sylvain Guintoli (Pata Honda World Superbike Team) and Randy de Puniet (Voltcom Crescent Suzuki) missed out on one of the top two places available, the pair qualifying 14th and 19th respectively.
