2016 Phillip Island World Superbike Superpole Results: Everyone Gets A Go

Superpole one had thirteen of the slower fourteen riders taking part, missing only Toprak Razgatlioglu who broke his leg in his FP2 crash.

Alex Lowes set an early fast lap of 1'31.452 on his new Yamaha YZF-R1 and beat it the lap after with a 1'30.976, over a second quicker than Jordi Torres in second place, before everyone came in to change tyres.

Xavi Fores took second place from Torres, but Torres took it back almost immediately. Josh Brookes was fourth quickest and hit traffic on his last lap and was unable to improve.

Lowes's fast lap in the first half of the session was enough to put him through to Superpole two, joined by Jordi Torres. They joined the faster ten men to compete for their final grid positions.

Jonathan Rea was the first rider in Superpole two to set a lap, but Davide Giugliano knocked him off the top with a 1'30.842, the first lap quicker than Lowes's from the first session. Sylvain Guintoli and Alex Lowes sat in second and third places before the midway lull where everyone pitted in to change tyres.

With the qualifying tyres on, Chaz Davies and Leon Camier knocked Giugliano off the top, then Guintoli went quickest only to lose the spot seconds later to Tom Sykes with a 1'30.020. Davide Giugliano and Jonathan Rea completed the first row ahead of Sylvain Guintoli, Alex Lowes and Michael van der Mark on the second row.
