Effenbert Ducati rider Jakub Smrz will start from pole position at Silverstone tomorrow after snatching pole position from Leon Camier during a wet superpole session.

Superpole was split in to two 20 minute sessions due to the weather, with Brit hopefuls Jonathan Rea, Eugene Laverty and Chaz Davies failing to make the second session.

Tom Sykes, Davide Giugliano and reigning champion Carlos Checa ruled themselves out of the fight for pole position with crashes in the second session.

BMW rider Leon Hasalm took pole position with seconds of the session remaining, only for Camier to beat his time. Smrz was the final rider to cross the line with a fastest time of 2'20.810.
