Qualifying One
The riders who were knocked out of the following qualifying sessions were Shannon Etheridge, Aaron Zanotti, Tom Tunstall, Martin Jessopp, Kenny Gilbertson and Michael Howarth.  For unknown reasons Billy McConnell of MSS Kawasaki did not appear on track due to technical problems, so the Australin will have to start from dead last.
Leon Camier of Airwaves Ducati is in provisional pole followed closely by Leon Haslam of HM Plant Honda and the battered and bruised Shane Byrne was in third.
The first dash saw two fallers both from the TENA for Men team, Tristan Palmer fell early on in the session to return and finish 16th overall. 
Michael Howarth crashed with 20 seconds remaining, but at that point was already out of the top 20 for the next round. 
Michael Rutter has qualified for the next round, but was forced to stop during the session following a technical fault, his second of the day after also suffering a crash in practice.
