2009 Nurburgring World Supersport Qualifying Practice Result - Domination Continues

Result and summary of Qualifying for the World Supersport class at the Nurburgring:

Cal Crutchlow continued his humiliation of the World Supersport field, leading qualification from the start, and extending his lead whenever anyone got within a second of the Yamaha rider. Crutchlow took pole by over 1.3 seconds, adding another 0.8 to his advantage on his final lap. Ten Kate Honda's Kenan Sofuoglu will start from 2nd, after edging Parkalgar Honda's Eugene Laverty towards the end of qualifying, but both men are a very long way off of Crutchlow's pace. Garry McCoy completes the front row, the Triumph having shown well all weekend.

2009 Misano 125cc Qualifying Practice Result - Pole Record Tumbles On Final Lap

Result and summary of Qualifying Practice for the 125cc class at Misano:

Bradley Smith will start Sunday's 125cc race at Misano from pole position, after shaving two thousandths of a second off the pole record on his final lap, and taking a clean sweep of all the practice so far. Smith's pole was a surprise in the end, as his Aspar Aprilia team mate Julian Simon was fastest throughout the 40 minute practice, until Smith took pole at the last moment.

Simon will be content to start from the front row, giving him a chance to fight for victory, and putting him in a good position to defend his title lead. Andrea Iannone joins the Aspar bikes on the front row of the grid, pipping Nico Terol to 3rd.

Danny Webb found a bit of pace to lift him into 13th place, ahead of fellow Briton Scott Redding in 14th. American Cameron Beaubier will start from 28th on the grid.

2009 Nurburgring WSBK QP2 Result - Haga Pips Spies In Final Seconds

If Ben Spies had struggled in yesterday's soaking conditions, he had no such trouble during this morning's dry second qualifying session. The Sterilgarda Yamaha rider went straight to the top of the timesheets during the session, only relinquishing top spot after Noriyuki Haga hustled his Xerox Ducati around to a top time on his final lap. Spies is now the meat in a Ducati sandwich, with Michel Fabrizio in 3rd, ahead of Ten Kate Honda's Johnny Rea. Spies team mate Tom Sykes continued his run of good form, taking 5th place in the dry, ahead of fellow Englishman Shane Byrne.

The final starting order will be settled this afternoon, during Superpole.

2009 Misano MotoGP FP2 Result - Rossi Takes Round Two From Lorenzo

The intense rivalry between Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo continues apace, the next instalment taking place on Saturday morning during the second session of free practice for the MotoGP class. After Rossi took first blood yesterday, Jorge Lorenzo set about extracting revenge, but that would be no easy task. Rossi and Lorenzo swapped the lead multiple times during the session, with Dani Pedrosa getting involved early on, before the two Fiat Yamaha men cracked into the 1'34s and left the Repsol Honda rider behind.

Lorenzo looked like clinching the session with a blistering final lap, but Rossi had crossed the line with a couple of seconds on the clock, and another shot at a lap. He made it count, destroying the race lap record and besting Lorenzo's time by two tenths of a second. Pedrosa ended up in 3rd, comfortably ahead of the LCR Honda of Randy de Puniet and Pedrosa's Repsol Honda team mate Andrea Dovizioso. Ducati's Nicky Hayden finished the session in 6th, continuing to improve, while Monster Tech 3 Yamaha's Colin Edwards was 7th.

2009 Nurburgring WSS FP2 Result - It's That Man Again

With the rain gone and the Nurburgring circuit now dry, if a little cold, conditions for motorcycle racing have improved immensely in Germany's Eifel mountains. Those conditions are irrelevant to Cal Crutchlow, however, as the young Briton continues to dominate whatever the weather. In the dry, Crutchlow extended his advantage to almost 2 seconds over the rest of the field, a prospect which must strike terror into the hearts of those who must try and stop him. Joan Lascorz came closest, a "mere" 1.8 seconds off the Yamaha rider, ahead of Kenan Sofuoglu and Eugene Laverty. The competition has a lot of work to do before this afternoon's one and only qualifying session.
