Tom Sykes will start Race 1 for the British World Superbikes from pole position after edging championship leader Jonathan Rea.
Wearing black armbands to remember Nicky Hayden, Saturday's qualifying for the British round of the World Superbike Championship got underway on a sombre note.
Kawasaki led the early running with Sykes ahead of Rea and Chaz Davies hot on their heels.
The Ducati rider was the first to improve on the final run, down to a 1:27.338.
His P1, though, was short-lived as Sykes came through with a 1:26.641 while Rea jumped up to second place.
Davies will join his title rivals on the front row of the grid.
Alex Lowes was fourth ahead of Marco Melandri and Eugene Laverty.
The Ulsterman was one of the two riders to progress through SP1, the other being Xavi Fores who qualified P6.
