Loris Baz managed to put the uncertainty surrounding his future behind him by securing his second World Superbike pole position of 2014 at Jerez.

Rumours have been rife with the Frenchman linked to an imminent switch to MotoGP. Aspar Honda is reported to be interested in securing his services on a production Honda RCV1000R for 2015.

Jonathan Rea is mooted to take over Baz's seat in the KRT Kawasaki World Superbike squad but when asked about their respective futures both men have remained tight lipped.
