Davies wins Superpole in Imola

Chaz Davies grabbed pole position for the Italian leg of the World Superbike Championship this weekend.

The Aruba.it rider secured his second pole position of the season by the smallest of margins, edging Tom Sykes by just 0.032 seconds around the Imola track.

The Welshman - on the new Pirelli qualifier tyre - posted his hot lap at his second attempt.

WSBK rider's championship leader Jonathan Rea would settle for third place on the grid, over two tenths behind his Kawasaki teammate Sykes.

Over half a second behind is Leon Camier for Augusta while local hopeful Marco Melandri rounds out the top five on his Ducati.

Jordi Torres will start at the back of the grid after he missed FP3 and Superpole due to illness. Althea BMW are hoping the Spaniard will recover in time for Race 1.
