Press releases from the teams and series organizer after qualifying and race 1 at Aragon:
World Supersport Superpole one was delayed a few minutes by the red flag in World Superbike. Rob Hartog and Niki Tuuli were the two favourites for the top two qualifying spots in Superpole one. After unusual conditions yesterday, Yamahas held the five quickest qualifying times.
The eighteen lap World Superbike was red-flagged after three laps, after a crash involving Leon Camier, Lorenzo Savadori and Jordi Torres. Leon Camier was taken to the medical centre. Lorenzo Savadori was the only rider to make the seventeen lap restart. Vladimir Leonov missed the first start due to his bike not being ready after a crash in qualifying and didn't make the restart. PJ Jacobsen started from the back of the grid as he didn't make the sighting lap for the quick restart.
Superpole one was on a dry track with Michael Ruben Rinaldi and Eugene Laverty's replacement Davide Giugliano the quickest of the slower men going into the session.
Sandro Cortese topped the sheets ahead of Lucas Mahias, Federico Caricasulo and Randy Krummenacher as Yamaha took the top four spots in the untimed session.
In an untimed session split by a red flag, Jonathan Rea was quickest by almost half a second from Chaz Davies.

#AragonWorldSBK– Day 1
Melandri maintains lead on Day 1 at Aragon
Rain returned at the start of FP3, with only one change in the top ten from FP2
Melandri mastered tricky conditions in Spain
The latest episode of the Paddock Pass Podcast is out. In episode #70, Neil Morrison, Steve English, and David Emmett join a conversation across three countries and two continents to discuss a chaotic and controversial Argentinian round of MotoGP.
There was an awful lot to talk about, but the boys tried to break it down into three different talking points, and cover the ground that way. First up is Valentino Rossi's accusation that Marc Marquez was "destroying the sport". Is Marquez really destroying MotoGP, and just how many rules did the Spaniard break on Sunday in Argentina? And how did his misdemeanors compare with that of Johann Zarco, who ran Dani Pedrosa wide, the Repsol Honda finally crashing and breaking his wrist.
Jordi Torres was quickest in a session where it started raining before anyone put in a properly quick lap. Leon Camier was able to get himself into Superpole two, though, knocking Michael Ruben Rinaldi down into Superpole one. Marco Melandri ended the day on top, with his quickest time in the second session proving to be the overall fastest of the day.
