Home star Cal Crutchlow suffered heavy falls at the start and end of the session. Fortunately, unlike on his two previous British GP Saturdays, Crutchlow escaped injury.

Other fallers in the cool morning conditions were PBM riders Yonny Hernandez (twice) and Michael Laverty, plus Ioda's Lukas Pesek.

The top ten riders after FP3 (combined times) will receive direct access to the second and final part of this afternoon's qualifying session.

Ducati test rider Michele Pirro is again replacing the re-injured Ben Spies at Pramac. Cardion AB's Karel Abraham is also absent through to injury, but has not been replaced.
