Chaz Davies was third quickest behind his Ducati teammate Giugliano, with Leon Haslam on the Red Devils Aprilia fending off the Kawasakis of Jonathan Rea and Tom Sykes. The top eleven riders were all within three quarters of a second with Markus Reiterberger 0.806 off the fastest time, twelfth quickest.

2015 Portimao World Superbike Official Test: Giugliano Fastest, Suzuki Make Progress

The majority of the World Superbike field stayed on at Portimao for an official one-day test at the Portuguese circuit, taking advantage of the limited testing opportunities the WSBK riders have this year. Ducati's Davide Giugliano leaves the test as quickest, putting in a very quick lap at the very end of testing to finish three tenths ahead of yesterday's double race winner Jonathan Rea. Rea kept just ahead of his Kawasaki teammate Tom Sykes, while Leon Haslam set the fourth quickest time on the Aprilia.

The Suzuki team made good use of much-needed test time to work on setting up the electronics. Improvements were clearly visible: Alex Lowes ended the day 5th quickest, but more importantly, was around a second faster than during the races yesterday. Teammate Randy De Puniet set the 14th best time, but was also three quarters of a second quicker than he was on Sunday.
