2009 Nurburgring WSBK QP2 Result - Haga Pips Spies In Final Seconds

If Ben Spies had struggled in yesterday's soaking conditions, he had no such trouble during this morning's dry second qualifying session. The Sterilgarda Yamaha rider went straight to the top of the timesheets during the session, only relinquishing top spot after Noriyuki Haga hustled his Xerox Ducati around to a top time on his final lap. Spies is now the meat in a Ducati sandwich, with Michel Fabrizio in 3rd, ahead of Ten Kate Honda's Johnny Rea. Spies team mate Tom Sykes continued his run of good form, taking 5th place in the dry, ahead of fellow Englishman Shane Byrne.

The final starting order will be settled this afternoon, during Superpole.
