Britain's Jonathan Rea and Eugene Laverty have qualified in third and seventh places for tomorrow's World Supersport race at Vallelunga with Australia's Broc Parkes on the pole.

Rea, who was quickest in yesterday's first timed session, is just under four-tenths slower than Parkes with Suzuki's Barry Veneman in second place. Italy's Gianluca Nannelli rounds out the front four.

Laverty, who is riding with broken bones in his feet following a practice crash for the Indianpolis 250cc race, lies in the middle of row two with Juan Lascorz and Andrew Pitt ahead of him, and France's Matthew Lagrive to his right.
Parkalgar Honda's American recruit Josh Hayes finished a creditable 12th place. It's Hayes' first time on the Honda CBR600 and his first visit to both Vallelunga and the World Supersport Championship. This is the first opportunity Hayes has had to ride in the dry after a wet test at Cadwell Park and yesterday's two wet session.
"Today is the first time I have ridden it in the dry and to finish 12th on the grid I think is a good result," he said. “Every time I go out on the bike I am learning more and we have a plan on a few more changes to make to the bike better for warm-up. Whether wet or dry I think we can compete for the top 10 tomorrow, that’s our aim.”


Donington Park winner Josh Brookes, on the Stiggy Honda, ended up in a disappointing 19th place.
Britain's other riders Graeme Gowland and Chris Martin, who is riding the GiL Kawasaki for the second time this season, are 22nd and 25th respectively.
