The threat of rain loomed over the World Supersport race, but it started dry in spite of raindrops reported at sector four.
The weather turned up to make the Superpole race evenness predictable. Ten laps under a grey sky made tyre choices interesting, with light and dark track areas visible and riders turning up on the grid with wet tyres and setups, swapping to try tyres and whatever setups they could fix on the grid. Leon Camier didn't line up after his crash yesterday and Tom Sykes didn't get to the grid with a warm-up lap, starting from the pit exit.
World Superbike race one started with blossom and green flags billowing in the Italian wind, ahead of tomorrow's probable rain.
World Supersport Superpole was hoping to avoid the red flags of the Superbike session and qualifying favourites Federico Caricasulo and Jules Cluzel were hoping to carry on their battle unimpeded.
Michael Ruben Rinaldi opened the Superpole session by setting fire to his Ducati Panigale, summoning the red flags. The restart only shortened the session to twenty four minutes. Three and a half minutes into the restart, Sandro Cortese and Leon Camier crashed out at turn four and brought the red flags back out. Camier was taken to the medical centre.
Federico Caricasulo and Jules Cluzel improved on their times from yesterday, while third-quickest Raffaele De Rosa improved but was unable to beat Randy Krummenacher and Ayrton Badovini, ending qualifying fifth-quickest.
Jonathan Rea improved on his times from yesterday, heading to Superpole in the top spot. Chaz Davies was unable to improve, but remained second-quickest while his Ducati teammate Alvaro Bautista passed Tom Sykes for third quickest overall. Tommy Bridewell sneaked in under the 107% qualifying limit in just thirty minutes of practice, reduced with a red flag break in the middle.
Jules Cluzel was quickest in the afternoon's session, but was unable to beat Federico Caricasulo's time from this morning.

Federico Caricasulo leads Randy Krummenacher and Jules Cluzel topped the morning's session, ahead of the Kawasakis of Lucas Mahias and Ayrton Badovini.
Jonathan Rea opened the weekend on top, ahead of the Ducatis of Chaz Davies and Alvaro Bautista.

The second twenty-one lap race of the day used the same grid as the first, with there being no time to fit a Superpole sprint race between the main events. The conditions were a little warmer, offering a little more grip than this morning.
Eighteen laps and no snow, World Supersport wouldn't be like qualifying yesterday.
World Superbike race one finally started on Sunday morning that wasn't as cold as Saturday's four-seasons-in-a-day weather, but it was still cold enough for riders to half-cover their radiators, silver-taping the centre line behind the front wheel.
