2015 Laguna Seca World Superbike Race One Results: No Passing Places

After a wet warmup this morning, the track had dried out, and the race would be twenty five laps of the shortest circuit of the series at a cooler temperature than usual.

Chaz Davies took the lead from pole position as his Ducati teammate Davide Giugliano's second place start got swallowed up by the Kawasakis of Jonathan Rea and Tom Sykes and the Aprilia of Jordi Torres. Rea went wide, letting Sykes through and Torres took the opportunity to pass Rea as well, but Rea passed him back very quickly, retaining third place.

Michael van der Mark set the target time of 1'25.755 on race rubber but was beaten by over a second by Badovini. Leon Camier moved to second two tenths off Badovini's time as the riders pitted in for qualifying rubber.

2015 Laguna Seca World Superbike FP1 Results: Kawasaki's Rea And Sykes Quickest

In the first session back after a long break, the Kawasakis go quickest with the Ducatis right behind them. Jonathan Rea was quickest ahead of Tom Sykes and Chaz Davies. The Ducati in fourth place was not that of Davide Giugliano, he was fifth quickest, but was Nicollo Canepa on the Althea bike. There was a brief red flag two thirds of the way through, but it wasn't a serious incident and the day's schedule hasn't been impacted.
