He will face competition from Maximilian Scheib (Aprilia Racing Team) however.

Maximilian Scheib (Aprilia Racing Team) survived the rain and the Italian cavalry to grab the first pole position of his career in the European Superstock 1000 Championship.  Scheib defied the wet conditions to record the fastest lap of the day, under constant pressure from Alessandro Delbianco (Gulf Althea BMW Racing Team) and Luca Salvadori (BMW Berclaz Racing Team SA), second and third respectively. With the first raindrops falling throughout the WorldSSP Superpole, by the time the STK1000 riders were ready they faced a drenched track, much different from the perfect conditions on Friday. Teams struggled to find the correct set-up, with up to 14 seconds between the times set by the first and last riders.

The FIM Europe Road Racing Commission has established a Working Group (WG MRR) with the purpose of developing the European Championship series for Mini Road Racing and to promote Mini Road Racing in general in Europe. The purpose is to improve the quality of the Championship events and increase the number of participants. At the same time this will establish a strong foundation for the pyramid work on which the development of new talents for Road Racing sport is based.
