Redding, who set the pace during free practice on Friday, stopped the clock at 1m 47.323s to claim a fourth pole of the season, with McAMS Yamaha’s Tarran Mackenzie (1:47.432) second and Oxford Racing’s Tommy Bridewell (1:47.730) third.
The former MotoGP rider leads the championship from Bridewell by just four points, with Josh Brookes, fourth on the gird, a further 27 points back.

However, Redding, 26, said prior to the round that his sole focus at Snetterton was picking up podium points, with an eye on the Showdown.
“It’s all about picking up as many Podium Points as possible as that will be very important come the Showdown,” Redding said.
“The plan as always is to challenge for the podium and if the win is possible, then I’ll go for it.”
The 26-year-old had four wins from 11 outings thus far this season with four rounds – and nine races – to go before the top six riders battle it out for the title at the Showdown.
