Fogarty flies on to pole

Blackburn's Carl Fogarty snatched pole position in dramatic style as he used his reserve bike to clock a lap record in qualifying for today's third round of the World Superbike Championship at Donington Park. Fogarty was halted by a fuel pump problem at Craner Curves and had to grab a lift back to the pits on a spectator's scooter. He quickly returned to the action and underlined his determination by clipping 0.17sec off the lap record, flying round in 1min 34.85sec. The Australian Troy Corser was closest to matching his time with a best lap of 1:35.01. Fogarty profile, page 10
