Leon Haslam will line-up for tomorrow’s first British Superbike race of the season at Thruxton from second on the grid, confident that he’s got a good setup for the two races.

Haslam set a 1.19.872, ust over a tenth of a second off pole-sitter Shane Byrne in wet conditions.

However, in the dry on Friday it was Haslam who tracked his team-mate Cal Crutchlow with the second fastest time overall in the dry.

Haslam told MCN: “We found a really good setup from yesterday morning and afternoon so I’m confident for tomorrow.

“In wet conditions today we put a new tyre in but we lost a lot of entry grip.

“It then turned into a bit of a lottery for tyres because it started to get dry.

“So we actually set our fastest time this afternoonin really wet conditions.

“But we have a good setup for tomorrow if it’s dry – we can make a few changes in arm-up but there was only Cal faster than us in the dry so I’m confident.”
