2009 World Superbikes Kyalami QP2 Result - Fabrizio Has Haslam And Rea On His Heels

The second session of qualifying was much colder than yesterday, and like the World Supersport class, left a lot riders waiting in the pits for better conditions. But the track warmed a little as the session went on, and by the end of it, most of the field had improved their times from yesterday afternoon.

Michel Fabrizio was fastest again in the session, finishing ahead of the storming twosome of Leon Haslam and Tom Sykes. Yukio Kagayama also improved his time to finish in 4th, ahead of Ben Spies, who could not improve on his time from yesterday. Local hero Sheridan Morais put in another fantastic performance to finish in 6th position, nearly 1.2 seconds faster than his temporary team mate Broc Parkes.

Championship leader Noriyuki Haga cold only manage a 10th fastest time, shaving just under a tenth of a second off his time from yesterday, but remaining in 11th spot in the provisional grid. Fonsi Nieto, Karl Muggeridge, Steve Martin and Shaun Whyte will not compete in Superpole, due to start this afternoon at 3pm local time, which is 3pm CEST.
