Eddi La Marra has taken provisional pole position for the fourth round of the 2012 FIM Superstock 1000 Championship as he led three different manufacturers inside the top three at Misano.
The Italian, who is third in the overall standings after three races, put the Barni Racing run Ducati 1199 Panigale top of the timesheets with a lap of 1min 39.634secs, which was just good enough to edge out Jeremy Guarnoni.
The Frenchman, who was quickest for MRS Kawasaki in FP1, was a mere seven hundredths of a second adrift of La Marra, and just over a tenth up on wild-card rider Michele Magnoni, the G.M BMW rider – who finished third overall in this category in 2010 – showing well at his home circuit.
Series leader Lorenzo Savadori was fourth fastest on the second of the Barni Ducatis, ahead of Markus Reiterberger, Marco Bussolotti and erstwhile series leader Sylvain Barrier.
Honda's Fabio Massei, Lorenzo Baroni and Ondrej Jezek rounded out the provisional top ten.
