Saturday's Superpole qualifying session at Brno has been halted due to a technical failure for Ducati's Davide Giugliano.

With title leader Max Biaggi the main casualty during Superpole 1, Giugliano's 1199 began spewing fluids early in the second stage of qualifying.

Giugliano, BMW Italia's Ayrton Badovini and local star Jakub Smrz were among those to fall on the fluid. All walked away although Badovini's BMW suffered major damage.
