MonsterMob Ducati rider Stuart Easton romped to his fourth pole position with a stunning display in glorious conditions at Oulton Park, Cheshire today when he posted fastest time in the Supersport final qualifying aboard his 748cc Ducati.

Fastest in the first session, Easton blotted his copybook with a crash late in the session but still emerged top of the pile.

"I got pole position by a decent margin so the job is done there. I was a bit disappointed with the second session when I lost the front end and tipped off but I got the job done anyway." said Easton.

Meanwhile, Superbike rider Shane Byrne's hopes of his ninth successive front row start were scuppered after his strategy for the Dunlop Super 12 ran out of time.

The series leader ended up fifth on the grid despite a low speed spill in the previous qualifying session but wasn't too despondent about his performance.

"I planned three stints and when I came in for the last one the team told me I would run out of time which I hadn't realised but row two isn't a disaster," declared 'Shakey', "I can still win from there."
