The rider, who is currently lying second in the rider standings is in a good position to be able set his sights on the top prize.

"Today was a productive day. I struggled in the first wet session this morning but we made up for it in the second where I finished fourth, so I'd say I have a good race pace even on a wet track,” said Laverty.

“Superpole was a "mixed" one and I'm pleased with my fourth place in the end. Starting from the front two rows is crucial. Tomorrow we'll be pushing hard looking for a win and hoping for two dry races”.
