Videos Of The Final Laps From Three Thrilling Races At Assen

Infront Motor Sports, the company that runs the World Superbike series, does an outstanding job for the most part of making the races it organizes available online for fans who haven't been able to see the races on TV. Not only do they stream the races live on the internet (though tragically, not to all territories in the world), they also have a Youtube channel where you can find highlights from the recent races.

And the highlights from Assen are worth watching again. Three of the five races of the day were decided on the very last lap, Assen's infamous GT chicane determining the outcome of two of them, so here's the last lap from World Superbike race one, the World Supersport race and the European Superstock 600 race. Enjoy!

Ben Spies' courageous last lap dive up the inside of Noriyuki Haga at the horribly fast  Hoge Heide corner:

Eugene Laverty's perfect last corner lunge past Joan Lascorz into the GT chicane:

Gino Rea's brilliant and mature last lap, staying calm while Vincent Lonbois crashes out, then Joey Litjens gets nervous at the prospect of a home win:

Nice pieces of racing (especially when I cannot access wsbk live stream from an "authorised" country) with very impressive stuff fomr Joey Litjens who manages to keep control of his bike with both tyres sliding for something like 3 seconds in the last fast corner! I'll give a look at that channel more often, the best lap feature is a good one.
