Easton fastest in FP3

Easton puts the Swan Honda at the top of the timesheets at Knockhill, ahead of the two Relentless by TAS Suzukis
Stuart Easton raised hopes of a home turf pole position as he topped the third and final free practice session at Knockhill.

The Scot, who has started from a British Superbike pole position just once, set the fastest time of the weekend so far to edge out FP2 pace setter Michael Laverty on the Relentless Suzuki.

His team-mate Alastair Seeley rose up the order to set the third quickest time, marginally ahead of Suzuki counterpart Tommy Hill and Mallory Park double winner Ryuichi Kiyonari.

Michael Rutter was sixth fastest, ahead of Kawasaki's Simon Andrews, Chris Walker on the privateer Suzuki, John Laverty and Tommy Bridewell.

Elsewhere, Andrew Pitt continued to creep up the timesheets on his first visit to Knockhill in 11th, marginally ahead of his team-mate Dan Linfoot, and title chaser Josh Brookes.

Ahh, the annual Knockhill dilemma. Will I get sunburnt, trenchfoot, or both? Should be good though, any one of Easton, Hill, Kiyo, Brookes or Michael Laverty could win. Maybe even Rutter, don't think Ellison is 100% yet and Knockhill is tough with the number of laps.
