BMW's Leon Haslam was 10th fastest in Friday's rain-hit opening qualifying session for round nine of the World Superbike Championship at Brno, Czech Republic.
Fastest lap - Free Practice: 2m 01.438s - 13th / Fastest lap - Qualifying Practice 1: 2m 00.422s - 10th:
“It was a bit of a rush this morning as we had a lot of tyres to test and we knew that it could rain today and tomorrow. But we tested all the tyres and did what we had on our list.
"In the first qualifying practice both times that I was on a good lap the rain came. That wasn’t ideal for me but we are not so far away. We’ll certainly need to keep working, but anything can happen on Sunday.
"Today’s times were strange anyway because some riders who are always fast here were only in the middle of the times. But I think everyone was working on race tyres and race set-up. We’ll see what the weather does tomorrow.”
