After two days of practice in an uncertain atmosphere, due to changing weather conditions, Troy Bayliss took the Superpole prize with a 1'25.656 lap, ahead of Haga, Kiyonari and Smrz, who were also on the first row. Just a few raindrops came along at the start of the Superpole laps, but that was enough for it to be declared ‘wet’; and then the sun came back… Wet Superpole is run in a different format compared to the solo lap of the ‘dry’ version: it’s a 50 minute session with a maximum of 12 pit lane exits for the riders. Bayliss only realized the fastest lap in the last moments, when the racetrack was completely dry and riders were finally running with Pirelli qualifiers. A great performance came from the English rider Tom Sykes, on the Rizla Suzuki which he races with in the BSB (British National championship) - which is also a single make Pirelli Championship. Sykes took a great 6th grid spot, behind Corser but ahead of Biaggi and the three Suzuki Alstare riders.

Once more the Losail racetrack presented difficult conditions for the riders to read. The first two days of practice were messed up by the wind moving sand into the racetrack and the track had a lower temperature than expected. Despite some tests made in the last weeks the teams were asked to find a new solution to a new problem, making things even more difficult for those on new bikes. They lost valuable time due to the bad conditions and had to try out many different settings.
