Shane 'Shakey' Byrne dipped under Leon Haslam's 2006 lap record at Cadwell Park to secure pole position at the Bank Holiday MCE British Superbike meeting.

Byrne, also quickest in Q1 and Q2, set a blistering pace to claim the number one spot on the grid on the ZX-10R with a lap of 1m 26.017s, which put him almost a second clear of Buildbase BMW's Ryuichi Kiyonari (1m 26.921s).

The pair were the only riders to clock 1m 26s laps in final qualifying, with Milwaukee Yamaha's Tommy Bridewell managing a best time of 1m 27.681s to secure the final place on the front row.

Bridewell's team-mate, Josh Brookes, had been right in the mix during Q1 and Q2 at the Lincolnshire circuit, but the Aussie missed the chance to set a fast lap in Q3 due to a technical issue with his YZF-R1 and will start from 10th place on row three of the grid.

Row two is headed up by Chris Walker on the GBmoto Kawasaki, followed by Peter Hickman (RAF Reserves Honda) and Tyco Suzuki's Josh Waters, who made a considerable improvement from free practice on the GSX-R1000.

Jon Kirkham (Halsall Kawasaki), John Hopkins (Tyco Suzuki) and Dan Linfoot (Quattro Plant Kawasaki) form the third row.

Scotsman Stuart Easton on the Rapid Solicitors Kawasaki, Martin Jessopp (Riders Motorcycles BMW), Michael Rutter (Bathams BMW), Gearlink Kawasaki's Ben Wilson and the returning James Westmoreland (Buildbase BMW) were among those riders who failed to progress to Q3.

Barry Burrell, Scott Smart, Howie Mainwaring, Easton and Jessopp were the top 15. Smart came off with around 10 minutes of Q2 remaining, thwarting his chances of going through to the final session.

In Q1, the red flags came out when Patric Muff (Bathams BMW) came off at Mansfield and was taken to the medical centre for further examination.

James Ellison, who made his comeback from injury at Cadwell Park, was 22nd on the GBmoto Kawasaki and has decided not to participate in Monday's races as he continues to feel the effects of his leg injury.
