Milwaukee Yamaha racer James Ellison is continuing his dominance of the Silverstone 200 support race at the British Grand Prix, taking the pole spot by almost a second from the Lloyds GBMoto squad of Dan Linfoot and Peter Hickman.

Ellison's 2'07.523 lap would have been good enough for a top eight spot on the grid at last year's British Superbike round at the Northamptonshire circuit, and will give the Cumbrian valuable settings ahead of the BSB Showdown.

His Yamaha teammate Josh Waters was fourth, ahead of the first of the superstock machines, Jonathan Railton, and Northern Irishman Marshall Neill on the Wilson Craig Honda, the only non-BSB spec superbike in the race.

David Johnson, also on a Kawasaki superstock machine, was seventh, Graeme Gowland was the first supersport machine putting his Macadam Appleyard Yamaha in eighth, and Aaron zanotti put his STEL Suzuki ninth to round out the third row.
