XAVIER LEADS THE WAY!

Team Alstare Suzuki Corona Extra rider Xavier Simeon put in a blistering lap of 1:34.007 to head the field at the end of the first day of qualifying at Brands Hatch today. Despite missing nearly all of this morning's practice session due to an oil leak on his bike, the young Belgian rider took command of this afternoon's timed session and showed the competition that he is the man to beat this weekend. Second fastest is his nearest rival, Nicola Canepa (Ducati), with Ondrej Jezek (Kawasaki) third.

XAVIER - 1st
Considering we missed nearly the whole of the morning session, that went pretty well this afternoon. My bike felt good and we were able to test a few things for tomorrow and Sunday. We'll make a few little changes tomorrow to see if we can improve the bike but, at the moment, everything is going in the right direction and we're pretty happy.

1 XAVIER Simeon (B-Alstare Suzuki Corona Extra) 1:34.007, 2 Canepa (I-Ducati) 1:34.083, 3 Jezek (CZ-Kawasaki) 1:34.278, 4 Giugliano (I-Kawasaki) 1:34.660, 5 Antonelli (I-Honda) 1:34.732, 6 Bond (GB-Suzuki) 1:34.909,
