2009 World Superbikes Misano QP2 Result - Rain Leaves Times Unchanged

The rain which had threatened during the World Supersport practice finally started to fall, leaving the track fairly deserted for the most part. Any time set during this session would make no difference for Superpole.

A few brave souls chose to put in a fair number of laps, however, and Troy Corser was the rider among their number who was fastest. The BMW rider was not the only surprise at the top of the wet timesheets: Pedercini Kawasaki's Luca Scassa, a rider who normally doesn't make it into Superpole, was 2nd, ahead of Kawasaki stand-in Jamie Hacking.

Johnny Rea was the fastest of yesterday's front row qualifiers, setting the 4th quickest time, while Michel Fabrizio was 6th fastest and Ben Spies was 13th fastest. The Texan only elected to ride two full laps, however. Nori Haga put in more laps, but to less effect, the Xerox Ducati rider ending the session down in 17th, just behind Max Biaggi.
