After setting fastest time in timed qualifying, MonsterMob Ducati's Shane Byrne was deprived of pole position by a flying Michael Rutter today at Thruxton.

The 26 year old from Minster, Kent had to give best to fellow Ducati rider Michael Rutter in the Dunlop Super 12 but despite not clinching pole position, Byrne was satisfied with his performance.

"Hats off to Michael, but he is the exponent of the one fast lap and at the end of the day it's what you do on race rubber that counts," stated Shakey. "After 25 laps we will see but I'm confident we have a good package for the race."

Team owner Paul Bird added: "There are no points for pole position and we're confident we have the right set up to win tomorrow's races."
