Jason O'Halloran has held on to top spot in a wet final practice session at Snetterton which curtailed any serious running due to the slippery but drying conditions.

The Honda Racing rider produced the fastest time in the dry on Friday and has once again proven his abilities around the Norfolk circuit by going quickest of all in the wet.

However, with conditions varying from wet to damp throughout the session, neither full wet or dry running was completed by any riders so times are unlikely to be representative.

Despite this Josh Hook impressed on just his second outing on the Team WD-40 Kawasaki to take second, albeit over one second off of O'Halloran, while Christian Iddon grabbed third on his Tyco BMW ahead of RAF Reserves BMW's Jake Dixon.

Championship leader Leon Haslam made a late surge up to fifth ahead of Tommy Bridewell who suffered a late fall on the Bennetts Suzuki which required a precautionary trip to the medical centre.

Anvil TAG Yamaha rookie James Rispoli grabbed seventh as Josh Wainwright, Glenn Irwin and Michael Laverty completed the top ten runners - while the latter also suffered a fall in the closing stages at Palmer but was declared okay.

With the final practice session confirmed wet the BSB grid took a tentative approach to FP3 with times slowly edging down to comparative race pace in the rain.

As the track began to dry out O'Halloran notched up a 2m 03.722s to go one second faster than anyone which set the benchmark that looked unlikely to be beaten as the rain returned at the halfway mark.

In the changeable conditions the timesheet altered little over the final 20 minutes which saw O'Halloran retain top spot ahead of Hook and Iddon.
