Josh Brookes has completed the opening day of MCE British Superbike Championship action at Oulton Park with a spot at the top of the timesheets after a late charge in FP2.

Honours appeared to be going the way of Tommy Hill after he lowered the benchmark to 1min 36.548s in the closing minutes, but Brookes would sweep in with a 1min 36.325secs shortly afterwards to put himself and the Tyco Suzuki at the head of the table.

A similarly good lap from Shane Byrne was also enough to squeeze ahead of Hill, the trio nonetheless comfortably ahead of fourth and fifth place riders Alastair Seeley and Ian Lowry.

Showing strongly once again aboard the Pr1mo Bournemouth Kawasaki, BSB veteran Chris Walker was a fine sixth fastest, ahead of a trio of BMWs, with Supersonic riders Patric Muff and Tommy Bridewell sandwiching the Buildbase entry of Dan Linfoot in sixth, seventh and eighth.

Completing the top ten was Michael Laverty aboard the Samsung Honda, who in turn edged out Noriyuki Haga, Jon Kirkham and Stuart Easton.
