Pole sitter Michel Fabrizio continued to lay down the gauntlet for his rivals during warm-up for the latest World Superbike round at Imola as he went fastest again.

Having now topped free practice, qualifying, Superpole and warm-up timesheets, Fabrizio is well placed to challenge for a second career-win on home ground, although he is still being pushed hard by Jonatahan Rea, who was just five hundredths further back in second.

Marco Simoncelli maintained his climb up the order with the third fastest time, ahead of Ben Spies, Ryuichi Kiyonari and Leon Haslam, while title contender Noriyuki Haga was seventh best.

Max Biaggi, Shane Byrne and Tom Sykes completed the top ten.
