World Superbike's last race in Europe before heading off to a new circuit was contested by twenty one riders on a fairly warm day.
World Supersport was thirty riders competing over nineteen laps of Magny-Cours with French riders challenging at the sharp end in front of their home crowd.
World Supersport Superpole had twenty riders fighting in Superpole one for two spots in Superpole two. Hannes Soomer and Ayrton Badovini ended Friday in the best place to get promoted to join the ten quickest riders, including the French pair of Jules Cluzel and Lucas Mahias, in Superpole two.

WorldSBK standings after race 1 at Magny-Cours:
World Superbikes is on the precipice of history with Jonathan Rea capable of winning his fourth world championship in a row. How did he do?
World Superbike Superpole started the first session at the new early time and eleven riders competed for the two spots in the second session, with Eugene Laverty and Leon Camier the favourites to promote themselves.
The final European round of the WorldSBK season sees Magny-Cours play host to Jonathan Rea's first attempt to make history by winning a fourth consecutive championship. The Northern Irishman is on the cusp of history and clinched the title here 12 months ago.
Can Rea clinch it?
It would be surprise if Rea doesn't leave France with the title in the bag. Over the course of the last three rounds he has been undefeated, and even though Magny-Cours has been a happy hunting ground in the past for Chaz Davies the Welshman is up against it due to injury. The stars are aligned for Rea to make history this weekend.
