Haslam takes Donington Superpole for Showdown opener

JG Speedfit Kawasaki's Leon Haslam will start from pole position in Sunday's first Showdown action for the MCE British Superbike Championship at Donington Park in Leicestershire.

“I’m really happy with that Superpole lap," reported Haslam. "Particularly as I made a bit of a mistake into the Melbourne loop.

"The pace this weekend has been so fast and the cooler conditions have thrown a little bit of a spanner in the works in terms of race distance.

"The team is working brilliantly at the moment though so I think we’re in for two great races. They’re certainly going to be two long races but I can’t wait for it.

"We’ve spent practice working on race distance but we’ll wait and see what the weather does tomorrow before deciding which compound rear Pirelli tyre to use.”
