Leon Haslam Donington BSB 2017

Leon Haslam claimed pole position at Donington Park for the second consecutive year ahead of Sunday’s British Superbike Championship season opener.

The JG Speedfit Kawasaki mounted rider will start from the front row alongside his teammate Luke Mossey and returning 2015 champ Josh Brookes. 

A heavily contaminated track surface put paid to the afternoons qualifying session so grid positions were determined by combined free practice session times.

This sees Peter Hickman head up row two on his BMW in fourth, with Shane Byrne and James Ellison sitting alongside him.

American, John Hopkins, will start from seventh for tomorrows first race, with Sylvain Guintoli and Glen Irwin, starting eighth and ninth respectively.
