BAYLISS IN POLE POSITION, NAKATOMI 19TH

It rained on Friday at Vallelunga and Noriyuki Haga was the fastest on his Yamaha. His teammate Troy Corser was fourth behind the two Ducatis of Ruben Xaus and the World Championship leader Troy Bayliss.

The sun was shining on Saturday and Troy Bayliss was the fastest in front of Max Neukirchner (Suzuki) and Michel Fabrizio (Ducati) during the qualifying practice. Shinichi Nakatomi was 19th. In Superpole, Troy Bayliss was again the quickest of all in front of the two Yamahas of Corser and Haga. This is the 25th pole position for the Australian champion.

Shinichi Nakatomi: "I have been testing here in July, but now my feeling is very different. We changed the tyre and the settings, but I still do not have enough feeling. I hope we can find a good set up for the race. So far, even if we changed the settings, my feeling is not so good."

Martial Garcia (team-manager): "It has not been possible to go as fast as we did in July because of the state of the track. The practices on Friday were perturbed by the rain so we miss two practice sessions."
