Full FP3 World Superbike results from Aragon

Jonathan Rea has broken Alvaro Bautista’s domination at the Aragon World Superbike round by topping the final practice session in tricky conditions, with the championship leader down in fourth place.

The reigning World Superbike champion produced a late lap of 1m 50.665s to leap to the top of the times ahead of former team-mate Tom Sykes who continues to impress on the new BMW.

Top lap times were around one second slower than Friday’s fastest efforts given the heavy rain which hit Aragon yesterday afternoon combined with the cold track temperatures which greeted the start of FP3.

Alex Lowes kept in touch for Pata Yamaha in third place to push Bautista down to fourth with his Aruba.it Racing Ducati team-mate Chaz Davies slotting into fifth place.

BMW’s Markus Reiterberger demonstrated his credentials in tricky conditions with sixth place ahead of Kawasaki’s Leon Haslam and top independent rider Eugene Laverty on the Team Go Elven Ducati.
