James Ellison put his Milwaukee Yamaha on provisional pole as he left it late to post the fastest time during FP3 at Oulton Park.

Ellison was the only rider to breach the 1m 35s bracket as he powered to the top of the timing charts on the YZF-R1 with a few minutes of the session remaining.

MCE British Championship leader Shane 'Shakey' Byrne had led the way for much of the session on his Rapid Solicitors Kawasaki ZX-10R, but in the end had to settle for second with a best lap of 1m 36.011s compared to Ellison's time of 1m 35.707s.

Alex Lowes had headed the times on Saturday in FP2 but the Samsung Honda rider slipped to third on his Fireblade, lapping in 1m 36.075s.

Buildbase BMW's Jon Kirkham was next (1m 36.283s) followed by Tyco Suzuki's Josh Brookes and Tommy Bridewell on the Bathams Honda, who rounded out the leading six.

Peter Hickman on the Lloyds British GBmoto Honda, Howie Mainwaring (MH Kawasaki), Chris Walker on the Quattro Plant Kawasaki and James Westmoreland on the second Buildbase BMW were the top ten.

Ryuichi Kiyonari could only manage 15th on the Samsung Honda, 2.215s down on Ellison.
