Crutchlow stays top in damp Q2

Josh Brookes's move from 21st to 19th is the only significant move on the leaderboard after Q2.
Cal Crutchlow has maintained his advantage at the top of the World Superbike order following second qualifying at Silverstone.

While the early morning rain had given way to warm sunshine by the time the riders made it onto track, the circuit was not never quite able to reach the optimum conditions compared to Q1.

As such, the combined lap times would see Crutchlow continue to lead Jonathan Rea – who was fastest during the Q2 session with a 2mins 06.585secs lap – with Troy Corser and Leon Camier third and fourth.

Behind Rea, Troy Corser, Lorenzo Lanzi and Ruben Xaus headed up the timesheets for Q2 itself, the latter proving one of the three riders to improve his time, even if the Spaniard remained 16th overall.

The other two riders to improve were HM Plant Honda duo Josh Brookes and Ryuichi Kiyonari. Significantly for Brookes, his lap lifted him from 21st to 19th, therefore earning him a shot at Superpole later today. Kiyonari remained 23rd and will therefore not progress, along with Roger Lee Hayden, Matteo Baiocco, Tommy Bridewell and Akira Yanagawa.
