Results of World Superbikes Superpole from Donington Park:

Ben Spies marked a return to Superpole dominance, taking his 8th pole of the season from 9 rounds. Spies had few problems defending his time, taking pole by nearly quarter of a second. Both Aprilias join Spies on the front row of the grid, the RSV4 showing clear improvement from previous rounds, where both Max Biaggi and Shinya Nakano have struggled to get past the second Superpole session. Sandwiched between Biaggi in 2nd and Nakano in 3rd is a revitalized Shane Byrne, his strong results at Misano clearly encouraging.
