Troy Corser, of Australia, pipped Britain's Carl Fogarty for provisional pole position in last Sunday's fifth round of the World Superbike Championship at Brno, Czech Republic, with a formidable lap in yesterday's opening practice session.

Corser was more than half a second faster on his Ducati than the back- to-form Fogarty, who insists there is still more to come from his Castrol Honda team. "It's definitely a track that suits Corser but that doesn't mean to say I've given up on pole position this weekend," Fogarty said. "There's Saturday's qualifying to come yet.

"It took me most of the session to get dialled in but I'm now a lot happier about my suspension settings for the rest of the weekend."

Fogarty's fellow Lancastrian Neil Hodgson took third place from his Ducati team-mate John Kocinski.
