2010 Magny-Cours WSBK QP2 Results - Guintoli Surprises In Front Of Home Crowd

Frenchman Sylvain Guintoli has taken a surprise provisional pole going in to this afternoon's Superpole qualifying session. The Alstare Suzuki rider - still without a seat for 2011 - put in a late push to set the fastest time in the second session of qualifying. Guintoli finished a tenth ahead of the man likely to take the sole Alstare Suzuki seat next season, Xerox Ducati's Michel Fabrizio, who was in turn two tenths quicker than newly-crowned 2010 WSBK champ Max Biaggi. Supersonic Ducati's Luca Scassa continues to impress in France, setting the 4th quickest time, five hundredths behind Biaggi and and four hundredths ahead of championship runner up Leon Haslam.
