BSB: Jake Dixon snatches pole, Leon Haslam to start at back of grid after technical issues
Jake Dixon took pole position for the first race of the Showdown at Oulton Park after championship leader Leon Haslam was scuppered by a technical problem.
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.
