Red flags were brought out for debris on track, causing a five minute break in the middle of the session, but at least the rain stayed away and gave us full-speed qualifying. Series rookie Scott Redding ended the day on top of both sessions, getting to within four tenths of a second of the race lap record towards the end of the second session. Toprak Razgatlioglu and Michael van der Mark were within half a second of Redding's best time with Leon Haslam exactly half a second off.

In a session split by two red flags, one of which was resolved by a man on a scooter chasing birds off the track, the dry weather gave riders a chance to try out the new for 2020 slick tyres, which let Randy Krummenacher set a lap that was quicker than the previous race lap record and within four tenths of a second of Sam Lowes's 2013 outright lap record. Krummenacher's switch to MV Agusta shows potential, with his teammate Raffaele de Rosa third quickest. Former Moto2 rider Andrea Locatelli was second quickest, swapping the top spot with Krummenacher throughout the session.
