Kawasaki eliminated in Q1

Kawasaki's hopes of matching their Miller Motorsport Park performance was dealt a significant blow after both Broc Parkes and Jamie Hacking were eliminated from the opening phase of Superpole at Misano.

With a dry circuit greeting the riders following rain earlier in the day, a quick flurry of times in the latter stages saved Shane Byrne and Yukio Kagayama, but it wasn't enough to prevent Gregorio Lavilla, Ruben Xaus, Parkes and Hacking from missing out.

Up at the front, five different manufacturers filled the top five positions, with Jonathan Rea setting the pace, ahead of Jakub Smrz, Max Biaggi, Ben Spies and Troy Corser.

Q2 follows shortly.
