WSB: Silverstone Friday

Published: 20 May 2006

WSB First qualifying: Troy Bayliss and Troy Corser dominated the first qualifying session for Silverstone WSB despite big crashes for Bayliss and Toseland.

Toseland, Chris Walker and Bayliss all crashed on the same damp spot on the track, one after the other and got the session red flagged.

Toseland was the perfect gentleman and helped Bayliss get his bike back up but the Ducati rider went on to crash a second time.

Fonsi Nieto took an impressive third spot on the provisional grid on his Kawasaki ZX-10R with Yamaha’s Noriyuki Haga taking fourth.

James Toseland managed to hold the fifth fastest time.

The session saw the first time ever that British Foggy Petronas rider Craig Jones managed to out-qualify his team-mate, Aussie, Steve Martin. Meanwhile wildcard Tommy Hill has qualified in a creditable 12th place on the Virgin Yamaha.
