Superpole one went down to the wire with who was promoted, with Sylvain Guintoli taking the top spot from Leon Camier. pushing Raffaele De Rosa out of promotion at the chequered flag.

The first fast lap of Superpole two was a 1'56.993 by Jonathan Rea, the fastest lap of the weekend so far, with Alex Lowes six tenths of a second off his pace.
