Topping the time sheets for the third round in a row is Championship leader Troy Corser on the Alstare Corona Suzuki he was the only rider to dip into the 1min 35secs.
His team-mate Yukio Kagayama who is usually hot on his heels came home in eighth spot.
The Winston Ten Kate Hondas were on the move this morning with Karl Muggeridge qualifying second and team mate Chris Vermeulen in fifth.
Young German rider Max Neukirchner on the Klaffi Honda who achieved a podium in Philip Island qualified third just ahead of British rider Chris Walker on his PSG-1 Kawasaki.
Frankie Chili even though he is riding with and injured shoulder and knee sustained at Philip Island he still managed a top ten position and qualified ninth.
Endurance rider David Checa came home in eleventh fresh from his win at the Le Man 24 hour endurance race last weekend.
Ben Bostrom on the Renegade Honda qualified in thirteenth which allows him into Superpole for the first time this season. The Petronas riders had mixed fortunes with Steve Martin in sixteenth place and Garry McCoy in eighteenth.
Unfortunately for World Champion James Toseland on the Xerox Ducati, he has failed to qualify for Superpole. Shocked Toseland qualified in twenty third position and with only the top sixteen riders going forward to Superpole he will not be taking part.
James has had concerns with the front forks and latest reports trackside from Valencia suggest he is not confident in the front end of the bike at the moment. In contrast Toseland's team mate Regis Laconi is in seventh position.
