Results and summary of Race 1 for the World Superbikes at Miller Motorsports Park:
Results and summary of a semi-dry Superpole from Miller Motorsports Park:
The second session of free practice started out wet, but conditions improved as the session progressed. The rain more or less stopped falling by the end, with riders improving their times rapidly. Leon Camier grabbed the top spot, finishing ahead of Troy Corser, the two men having alternated the lead for a good part of the session.
The weather is starting to lift, and conditions could be a little better for Superpole.
The second session of qualifying practice at Miller was run on a very wet track, leaving the order established during yesterday's dry qualifying session unchanged. But the wet weather did see a few different names near the top of the timesheet. Fastest man in the session was Aprilia's Leon Camier, who had been 2nd fastest in the dry. But in 2nd and 3rd came Effenbert Liberty's Jakub Smrz and BMW's Leon Haslam, both scoring better in the wet than in the dry. Fastest man in the dry, Carlos Checa, set the 4th fastest time of the session.
The grid order will be set during Superpole, and given the current state of the weather, the chances are that this will be a pretty wet affair too.
Results of QP2 session:
Carlos Checa dominated the first session of qualifying for the World Superbikes at Miller Motorsports Park in Utah, leading the session from his first lap out of the pits and never relinquishing top spot. The Althea Ducati rider ended the day nearly eight tenths ahead of the man in 2nd place, Leon Camier, who was in turn a quarter of a second ahead of his Alitalia Aprilia teammate, Max Biaggi.
The session was run under dry circumstances, though dark clouds had threatened all day. A few drops of rain at the end of the session saw the red and white rain flags get shown with three minutes to go, putting an end to any plans of improvement anyone may have had. With rain forecast for tomorrow, the result of today's qualifying session could determine the pre-selection for Superpole, with several riders, including BMW's Leon Haslam, very lucky to scrape into the top 16.
