2012 Nürburgring WSBK QP1: Checa And Giugliano Lead

Current world champion Carlos Checa and his Althea Ducati team mate Davide Giugliano topped the tables in timed practice today, with Checa half a second faster than the qualifying king Tom Sykes back in provisional third place. Eugene Laverty and Leon Haslam both out qualify their Italian team mates, while Lorenzo Zanetti manages to go faster than his new team mate Sylvain Giuntoli. With one more qualifying session tomorrow morning to determine who goes through to the Superpole rounds, replacement rider Lorenzo Lanzi is probably hoping for rain tomorrow.
