Misano WSBK Day 2 Test Times - Melandri Leaves As Fastest Man

Marco Melandri topped the timesheets at the final day of testing for the World Superbike series at Misano. The Yamaha rider broke into the 1'35s on Wednesday, setting a time of 1'35.8, seven tenths quicker than the official lap record set by Carlos Checa during the race back in June. Checa and Eugene Laverty once again set the 2nd fastest time, two tenths behind Melandri, while BMW Italia's Ayrton Badovini continues to impress, ending the test just a tenth of a second slower than Checa and Laverty.

Toni Elias, drafted in to test the bike vacated by the precipitate retirement of James Toseland, made some improvement, but ended the day 2 seconds behind Melandri, a tenth closer than yesterday, but still a long way behind the Italian. Elias left the test early on Wednesday, heading off to Aragon for this weekend's round of MotoGP, where he will be mulling over the BMW offer he is reported to have.

2011 Nurburgring World Superbike QP2 Results: Checa Takes Provisional Pole

Carlos Checa has taken provisional pole ahead of this afternoon's Superpole session for the World Superbike class at the Nurburgring. The Spaniard was nearly four tenths faster than the 2nd place man Eugene Laverty, while Pata Aprilia's Nori Haga set the 3rd fastest time. Max Biaggi had the 4th overall time from both QP1 and QP2, but an injury picked up yesterday - when a stone hit is foot, breaking a bone and injurying his ankle - meant he was unable to improve his time, lapping a second slower than Checa. Superpole could be a struggle for the championship contender and reigning world champion.

Michel Fabrizio put his Alstare Suzuki on 4th, just ahead of Leon Camier on the first of the Alitalia Aprilias.
