Dixon's fellow title fighters Josh Brookes, Glenn Irwin and Bradley Ray start in 4th, 5th and 7th respectively.

It came after Haslam could not post a time at all after his bike failed him. It means he will have to start from the back of the grid in Race 1 on Sunday, which starts at 1.35pm.

Race 2 is at 3.50pm.
