2012 Brno World Superbike FP1 Result: Giugliano Leads Ducati Duo

Davide Giugliano has snatched the fastest time in the first session of free practice for the World Superbike class at Brno. The Althea Ducati rider led a late charge to take over from Max Biaggi, who had in turn deposed Tom Sykes, the Kawasaki rider having led for a large part of the session. Jakub Smrz of the troubled Liberty Ducati squad ended the session in 2nd, at his home race of the season, while Eugene Laverty just edged his factory Aprilia teammate Max Biaggi. Early leader Tom Sykes was dropped into 5th place, ahead of BMW's Marco Melandri and Giugliano's Althea teammate Carlos Checa.
