Biaggi quickest despite falls

Rea sets the fastest time of the session as he leaps from 16th to sixth, though the top five remain unchanged from Q1.
Max Biaggi held firm at the top of the World Superbike timesheets in Q2, despite falling twice at Donington Park.

The Italian's best lap from Q1 was more than enough to retain his place at the head of the field, though he did blot his copybook with two identical falls at the first Redgate corner after running wide on the entry.

With just six riders posting improved times in the cooler conditions, the combined positions remained largely unchanged, with Rea making the biggest gains from 16th to sixth as he set the fastest time of the individual session.

Tom Sykes and Maxime Berger were others to improve as they crept into the top ten in ninth and tenth, while Michel Fabrizio saved blushes at Suzuki as he edged into the top sixteen in 15th position.

His and Rea's elevation means Ayrton Badovini has been pushed down to 17th, the Italian joining Roberto Rolfo and Mark Aitchison in watching Superpole from the sidelines.

Chris Vermeulen, meanwhile, didn't get out on track at all, as it looks increasingly likely he will not ride for the remainder of the weekend.

Surprise surprise! CV didnt go out on track! Another weekend wasted for all his mechanics and staff. Paul Bird must be sick of his excuses. Everyone slags off kawasaki but its being left to poor old Sykes to develop it again. Lascorz will come good but lacks superbike experience. Chris, retire and give someone else a crack at it, someone who has the drive and enthusiasm you had when you rode for TenKate!!
