Sunday Images from Miller Motorsports Park WSBK

Sunday was all about Ben Spies' domination of his home WSBK round as the Texan was simply unstoppable. Once again we had weather that started clear and grew increasingly cloudy as the hours passed.

 

Spies lead each of the three starts into the first corner.

 

Within a few laps he'd gapped those chasing him and seemed to be running away into the distance.

 

Last year's double-winner Carlos Checa was able to repeat on the podium for the first race while Michel Fabrizio cemented his position as contender for top three in the championship.

 

In a terrific Supersport race, Eugene Laverty led every lap, followed closely until lap 14 of 18 by Cal Crutchlow, championship points leader, and Joan Lascorz.

 

But it was Kenan Sofuoglu who would go from third to first on the last lap to take the Supersport win.

 

In the second Superbike race, Spies delivered his knockout blow for the weekend, leading from start to finish and making up valuable points on Haga.

 

Spies treated the crowd to a little show after his second win of the day.

 

Johnny Rea represented Ten Kate on the podium this time, though in third place.

 

A result he was very pleased with.

 

Ben Spies' performance pleased the local crowd, young and old.
