Cadwell Park British Superbikes: Leon Haslam secures pole at Cadwell
Leon Haslam was the fastest rider this morning and knocked 0.4secs of this time to post a 1:26.081 after 32 minutes.
HM Plant Honda’s Jonathan Rea was quickest at the start of the session setting a marker of 1:29.356. The Ulsterman then improved to lap the Lincolnshire circuit in 1:28.291.
Honda rider Karl Harris was an early contender as he went second with a 1:28.505 but Airwaves Ducati’s Gregorio Lavilla had other ideas ad went second with a 1:27.543.
At the 10 minute stage Jonathan Rea went quicker still at the top with a 1:27.275 before Leon Haslam settled down in his laps to go top with a 1:26.702 after 13 minutes.
Haslam knocked almost 0.4secs off his time at the halfway stage but his best time came just a few minutes later.
Jonathan Rea’s 1:26.182 was enough after 46 minutes to put him back to second with Stobart Vent Axia’s Tom Sykes looking for a podium once more after his Croft success starting from third.
Rounding off the front row for the two races is Airwaves Ducati’s Gregorio Lavilla whose best lap of 1:26.550 came 10 minutes from the end of the session.
