The fastest in FP3, Bautista started his first lap of Superpole with a surprisingly large group of riders chasing him.

Despite having more than ten runners behind him, Bautista remained pissed off as he began to pull away. A time of 1:32.608s saw Bautista momentarily go fastest, however, Toprak Razgatlioglu exploded to the top of the standings with a 1:31.578s.

Satisfied with his first lap, Razgatlioglu immediately returned to the pit lane as Jonathan Rea, who moved up to second with his first lap and Bautista continued.

Out of step with the rest of the WorldSBK grid, Scott Redding started his first flying lap with just over seven minutes to play. The BMW driver was third quickest, however, the driver with the pace was Bautista as the Spaniard took provisional pole by +0.011s.

After suffering a moment in sector two at the start of his second run, Rea then regrouped in order to set a new all-time lap record.

Razgatlioglu set a time of 1:31.277s, and although this was a new lap record at the time, Rea blitzed that time by over three tenths.

As the top three in the championship looked set to complete the front row, Michael Ruben Rinaldi shocked his team-mate by jumping to third place in the dying seconds.

Alvaro Bautista was the man to beat in the tough conditions after the Ducati rider passed FP3 by more than eight tenths over Axel Bassani.

After finishing fastest in FP1, Jonathan Rea could only manage fifth place in Friday’s combined times after failing to improve during the afternoon. Instead, it was reigning world champion Toprak Razgatlioglu who took the spoils with a brilliant new lap record set on racing tyres.

There were impressive performances from Scott Redding and Michael Rinaldi, with the duo finishing second and third, while series leader Alvaro Bautista was fourth fastest.

On Friday, BSB rider Ryan Vickers made his World Superbike debut for Pedercini Kawasaki, as did Michal Prasek for Rohac & Fetja Motoracing BMW. Making his second consecutive World Superbike start through injury, Peter Hickman was also in action for the BMW Motorrad WorldSBK factory team, replacing Michael Van Der Mark.

Fresh off a new one-year deal with BMW, Van Der Mark, who missed all but his home race at Assen, will return after the summer break at Magny-Cours.
