Redding looked in ominous form ahead of Superpole qualifying after completing several laps in the 1m 32s barrier - only rider to do so until under five minutes to go when Toprak Razgatlioglu went quickest. 

Rea then went fastest as qualifying runs came in, however, it was a short lived stint at the top for the championship leader as Redding went quickest again. 

The Ducati rider remained atop the standings as the checkered flag dropped, while Garrett Gerloff and Andrea Locatelli made it three Yamaha’ in the top five with third and fifth.

Jonas Folger suffered an early crash which was enough to cost him the rest of FP3, as the German’s M 1000 RR BMW machine was stranded along a service road in the final sector.

Free Practice Two

Garrett Gerloff topped a rain affected Most WorldSBK FP2, while Toprak Razgatlioglu remained fastest overall on day-one. 

After waiting patiently for 20 minutes, Czech fans were greeted by Team HRC’ Leon Haslam who exited pit lane and completed the first timed lap of the session. 

Haslam was soon followed by wildcard riders Marvin Fritz and Karel Hanika. The action then intensified as Gerloff led the way from Razgatliioglu.

The top two remained unchanged as FP2 came to a close, while Axel Bassani finished third fastest. Championship leader Jonathan Rea opted not to head out, as did Chaz Davies, Michael Rinaldi and Scott Redding with track safety seemingly an issue. 

Free Practice One

Toprak Razgatlioglu showed stunning pace to top the inaugural Most WorldSBK practice session. 

It was Scott Redding who set the early pace after battling it out with Razgatlioglu and Jonathan Rea. However, Razgatlioglu went over six tenths quicker than the Ducati rider with ten minutes to go with a time of 1:33.022s.

Alex Lowes jumped ahead of Redding with his final lap, but was still six tenths down on Razgatlioglu.

Andrea Locatelli continued his impressive form from Assen to finish fifth quickest. The surprise of the session was German rider Marvin Fritz who finished fourth quickest for IXS-YART Yamaha.

Fritz is joined by World Endurance team-mate and local rider Karel Hanika aboard an IXS-YART Yamaha machine for this weekend. Championship leader Rea finished in sixth place for Kawasaki.
