2018 Imola World Superbike FP3 Results: Davies Pips Rea And Melandri

It looked like Jonathan Rea was going to get it all his own way, but towards the end of the session, Chaz Davies clinched the top spot. Rea was able to then match his rival's time, but he couldn't beat it. Marco Melandri was third quickest ahead of Lorenzo Savadori while Eugene Laverty and Alex Lowes missed out on Superpole two and will head into the first Superpole sessions as favourites to advance. Leon Haslam was eighth-quickest on his return to World Superbikes.

Thought superpole was later today.

Three Hondas, good to see Jason O'Halloran get another ride in World SBK. No BSB this weekend huh? Maybe Honda is getting a little more serious about WSBK.

I for one would like to see a report on the "300" class aka World Supersport 300.

Thanks Jared.
