WorldSBK standings after the first race at Misano:
World Supersport gets a Pirelli SCX tyre, and everyone chooses to use it for their first race of the weekend.
Five thousand spectators were allowed into Misano to watch racing on a 28ºC day. All riders on the grid chose the SCX rear tyre, having taken the weather and the 48ºC track in to account, so there wasn't a tyre war in play.
In response to the yellow flags in Estoril ruining several riders' qualifying on their only one-shot tyre, the rules have been changed for Superpole in World Superbike. Still at a short fifteen minutes, riders now get two of the super sticky qualifying tyres with which to set their qualifying times. Eugene Laverty would miss this session after his morning's crash.
Michael Ruben Rinaldi, an Italian rider on an Italian bike at an Italian track with a limited Italian audience, has been quickest heading to Superpole, and his nemesis from last weekend, Garrett Gerloff, will start from pit lane this afternoon, but his superpole time will be used in tomorrow's sprint race.
World Supersport qualifying culminated in Superpole on Saturday morning, twenty minutes determining the grid for both races.
Michael Ruben Rinaldi and Scott Redding were quickest in the morning's short qualifying, a session plagued with cancelled laps and a red flag. Eugene Laverty was taken to the medical centre after his red flag crash.
