A few brave souls chose to put in a fair number of laps, however, and Troy Corser was the rider among their number who was fastest. The BMW rider was not the only surprise at the top of the wet timesheets: Pedercini Kawasaki's Luca Scassa, a rider who normally doesn't make it into Superpole, was 2nd, ahead of Kawasaki stand-in Jamie Hacking.
