MSS Kawasaki on front row in WSS.

MSS Discovery Kawasaki's Pere Riba put in a blistering final lap in Saturday's final qualifying session to take third place on the front row of the grid for Sunday's sixth round of the World Supersport Championship at
Silverstone.

Riba, eighth after the opening qualifying session, was looking comfortable holding a top 10 placing ahead of Sunday's race before the talented Spaniard completed an incredible finish to the session, moving from eighth place to third with his final lap of the 3.13-mile circuit.

"I'm very, very happy with that lap time," said wild card rider Riba. "Everything was working perfect and the machine feels better than it has done at any time this year."

"The ZX-6RR engine feels very strong and is very fast compared to the other machines out there. I was on the limit but everything was working so well the brakes, the front suspension, the rear suspension and the Pirelli
tyres. The machine feels good on a race set-up and I'm hoping I can be in a position to win tomorrow. It's great for the team, Stuart (Simmonds)and Nick (Morgan) deserve to be challenging for a win here and we've put ourselves in a really good position." Added Riba.

"The team is working very well and it's all down to me now to try and make the most of starting alongside the World Supersport Championship regulars. I'm now excited and fascinated to see how the race will develop tomorrow." Riba concluded.
