Rich Energy OMG Yamaha rider Ryde took his first pole from a qualifying session pole after a brave run on a slippery track to post a best time of 1m 43.086s.

Using Lee Jackson as a scorer, he followed his lines around the track and then improved them to claim top spot, where he will look to build on his second-place finish in the championship.

MCE Ducati’s Josh Brookes, arguably one of the most successful riders on the grid, finished outside the top twelve in practice, with a modest 17th place.

He then just got through Q1 with the sixth fastest time before his racing experience showed. His final lap blitzed those before him and looked strong for pole before being disqualified by the charging Ryde. #25 was 0.707s slower after this recorded lap.

Luke Mossey (TAG Racing Honda) was the first to get a lap on the board in Q1 and was competitive in Q2, with the best lap dropping repeatedly as the track dried up.

His second qualifying run left him third to complete the front row of the grid.

Rory Skinner showed strong pace in the wet but narrowly missed a front row start in fourth for FS-3 Racing Kawasaki.

The top five features five different manufacturers, with Peter Hickman using his experience to help him line up on the FHO Racing BMW starting grid, just ahead of teammate Ryan Vicekers who regularly leads the way to sixth place.

Bradley Ray came out on top in Q2 after setting a new all-time lap record in FP1. Building on his performance at Silverstone where he picked up two podiums, he wobbled and shook in the wet and couldn’t quite handle Ryde’s prowess in the wet, finishing seventh in the session.

Andrew Irwin (BMW – SYNETIQ BMW Motorrad) and Brookes team-mate Tom Sykes, returning to Oulton Park for the first time in over a decade, also missed the gap, 14th and 15th respectively in Saturday’s combined times .
Irwin was one of six to make it through Q2 and fit into the session, moving up to eighth in BMW SYNETIQ BMW Motorrad, just ahead of his brother.

Silverstone triple winner Glenn Irwin ninth.

Glenn Irwin leads the standings after his brilliant performance at Silverstone where he won all three races.
Going into qualifying with the seventh fastest time, the Honda Racing rider struggled to make an impact.

Never really disturbing the leaders and almost two seconds off the pace, Irwin will seek to progress in the race which promises to be dry after the deluge which delayed the start of qualifying.

SYNETIQ BMW’s Danny Buchan did enough to slip into the top ten.

Tom Sykes came from Q1 with the second fastest time but couldn’t keep his form as the track dried out, posting the eleventh fastest run for MCE Ducati after consistently near the top of the timesheets at the start of the second session, the drying track doing very few favors with grip.

It was a similar story for Danny Kent (Buildbase Suzuki) who entered Q2 with the fastest time, but the former Moto3 champion also found it difficult despite valuable track time in changing conditions. Kent will be the best Suzuki on the grid.

The pair were separated by Leon Haslam, who took twelfth place for VisionTrack Kawasaki.

Jason O’Halloran dominated the first lap on the track last season taking all three wins and one more when the paddock returned for the showdown. Today was a completely different story – behind almost three seconds and only 14th.

The sixth of the riders to advance to Q2, Storm Stacey finished the session 18th for the LKQ Euro Car Parts Kawasaki team.

Tarran Mackenzie still out

Looking to race this weekend and hoping to be back in action as soon as possible, Tarran Mackenzie was not declared fit after a late fitness test but is on the track with Team McAMS. Feeling good with his cast but still on crutches, the reigning champion has been advised not to race and is now hoping for a return to Donington. Mackenzie already has a lot of catching up to do after Glenn Irwin won all three races at Silverstone in round one, but with multiple DNFs in his title-winning season the gap still shouldn’t be impossible to close, with fewer chances than new ones. accidents aggravate his injury further.
