A new Tissot-Superpole to set the grid in 2014

The 2014 edition of the eni FIM Superbike World Championship will see the introduction of a new Tissot-Superpole format, based on two sessions of 15 minutes each. Twenty riders will battle for the best placing on the grid, with the combined times in free practice to play a bigger role in the chase for pole position.

This change is part of an effort to make WSBK and GP Sporting Rules as similar as possible, to create a common ground in terms of regulations that can help circuit organisers, marshals and everyone involved in both series.

Tissot-Superpole – New procedure

– The top 20 riders classified after the Free Practice 1, 2 and 3 sessions will take part in Tissot-Superpole

– The ten fastest riders will be seeded directly into to Superpole 2 while the riders classified 11th to 20th will take part in Superpole 1

– The fastest two riders in Superpole 1 will progress to Superpole 2, making a total of 12 riders competing for the first 12 grid positions

– Both Superpole sessions will run for 15 minutes each. There will be a break of 10 minutes in between Superpole 1 and Superpole 2
