2014 Jerez World Superbike Superpole Results: Surprises To The End

Superpole One took place under cooler conditions than yesterday's afternoon session.

Leon Haslam and David Salom were the top two after the first five minutes and Haslam just kept increasing the pace, as you'd expect on a non-Evo bike. Alessandro Andreozzi had the second spot, the last spot that could promote you to Superpole two, at the halfway mark, but the qualifying tyres turned up for the second half.

David Salom used his good tyre to take the top spot from Leon Haslam but the timing screen lit up with potential faster laps and Haslam took the top spot only to be relegated by Sylvain Barrier on an Evo BMW.

In Superpole Two, Leon Haslam, having been promoted from the first session, set the pace lap of 1'41.338 on a race tyre, ahead of Davide Giugliano and Eugene Laverty.

Sylvain Guintoli led the charge of the qualifying tyres, with a 1'40.877, but Davide Giugliano put a blistering lap in before charging into the gravel trap at the end of the straight. Loris Baz looked like grabbing a front row start but tied together a tidy last sector that gave him a pole position that even Tom Sykes couldn't take off him, in spite of being quicker for the first three sectors.

The front row will be Loris Baz, Davide Giugliano and Tom Sykes, with Marco Melandri, Sylvain Guintoli and Eugene Laverty on the second. Baz set the outright fastest lap on his way to his second pole position, with a 1'40.298, three tenths quicker than Eugene Laverty's qualifying lap from 2013.
