2012 Nürburgring WSBK FP2: Sykes Fastest By Thousandths

Early on, Tom Sykes set a blistering 1'54.996 and the rest of the session everyone set about trying to get close to it. With five minutes remaining, Max Biaggi put in two laps within a tenth of a second but even this couldn't topple the qualifying king. Jonathan Rea continued his good form ahead of the BMWs of Marco Melandri and Leon Haslam and the rest of the top ten were within just over a second of Sykes. 

Will Carlos Checa's outright qualifying record of 1'54.144 fall when the qualifiers go on?
