Alvaro Bautista will start out Race 1 of the Misano Globe Superbike round from pole soon after setting a new lap record.
Superpole got off to a hot start out as Jonathan Rea set his individual very best lap on his quite 1st try.
Rea then enhanced once more on his second flying lap in order to set a time of 1:33.578s, on the other hand, globe champion Bautista went more quickly by more than a tenth of a second.
Soon after topping each FP2 and FP3, Bautista looked like the rider to beat just before Toprak Razgatlioglu broke the official lap record.
Razgatlioglu’s time was more than two tenths clear of Bautista just before Danilo Petrucci split the leading two riders in the championship.
Displaying his very best type considering the fact that moving to Superbikes, Petrucci managed to turn on the qualifying tyre, not for the 1st time this weekend, which had previously been an problem for the former MotoGP rider.
Slower than Razgatlioglu in the 1st two sectors, Bautista then created a brilliant third and fourth sector in order to dethrone the Yamaha rider.
There was a crash for Scott Redding at the starting of the final time attack runs, just before Bautista also went down at turn eight.
The globe champion’s fall meant many riders which includes Razgatlioglu, who was going faster than Bautista, had to abandon their present laps.
A red flag was then brought out with just beneath two minutes remaining due to a crash involving Gabriele Ruiu.
While there was sufficient time to restart the session, Superpole did not get back underway as Bautista secured pole.
