MSS Riba puts ZX-6RR on front row.

MSS Discovery team ace Pere Riba will start from the front row of the grid in Sunday's sixth round of the British Supersport Championship at Thruxton, Hants aboard his Kawasaki ZX-6RR.

The Spanish rider on his first visit to the 2.4-mile Thruxton track recorded his fastest qualifying lap in Saturday morning's opening session and is in confident mood for Sunday's 20-lap race.

"Yesterday's free practice was a struggle but we've worked hard overnight and the machine was fantastic today," said Riba. "In today's final qualifying session we ran out of time to record a fast qualifying lap but getting the ZX-6RR in perfect shape for the race was our priority."

"Thruxton is a really wide circuit so it's been a little difficult choosing the correct line through some of the corners but I've got no worries about a good race pace," added Riba who finished just 0.4s adrift of pole position.

The MSS Discovery team's guest rider for Thruxton, journalist Gus Scott, was 23rd fastest and starts from the sixth row of the grid.

"The pace is incredible," reported Scott. "I'm having a ball on the ZX-6RR though, and the team's great to work with. I'll be happy if I can edge into the top 15 and grab a point in tomorrow¹s race."
