Rain scuppers Q2 improvements

Bad weather has prevented any riders from improving their lap times during the second qualification session for the latest round of the World Superbike Championship at Misano.

The unseasonal rain arrived during the preceding World Supersport practice session and failed to clear up during the 45-minute long Superbike session.

It means the same top twenty from Q1 will progress to Superpole later in the day, with David Salom, Matthieu Lagrive, Luca Scassa, Matteo Baiocco, David Checa, John Hopkins, Vittorio Iannuzzo, Alessandro Polita and Roland Resch missing out.

Although some riders, including Ben Spies, Leon Haslam and Shane Byrne, limited their running to just a few laps, others took the opportunity to get some wet weather running.

As such, Troy Corser emerged with the fastest time of the session, marginally ahead of Kawasaki pair Scassa and Jamie Hacking. Jonathan Rea and Tom Sykes completed the top five.
