JAMES TOSELAND started the most important weekend of his racing career in a subdued fashioning by posting the seventh fastest time of the day at Magny Cours, ahead of Sunday's WSB showdown.

Ducati-mounted Lorenzo Lanzi claimed provisional pole position for the final rounds of the series, posting his fastest time on the final lap of a damp but drying session in 1:40.9

Lanzi's team mate, Troy Bayliss, posted the second fastest time of the day, just 0.372 seconds behind the Italian. Noriyuki Haga went third quickest around the 2.74-mile circuit.
