2012 Nürburgring WSBK QP2: Rea Makes Late Charge

Very early on in this morning's qualifying session, Marco Melandri was the only one to make an immediate improvement on yesterday's times, and he held the top spot near the end, but with a couple of minutes to go, Jonathan Rea went three hundredths faster to claim provisional pole. Max Biaggi and Carlos Checa rounded out the provisional front row with Tom Sykes and Davide Giugliano heading the second.

The top five qualifiers are also the top five men in the championship, albeit in the wrong order.
