2018 Motorland Aragon World Superbike Race Two Results: Are We Still Doing The Reverse Grid?

old_url: 

World Superbike race two took place on a 30ºC track, using the five kilometre configuration instead of the slightly longer one used by the FIA. 

Marco Melandri sat in pole position, thanks to the reverse grid, ahead of Michael van der Mark and Tom Sykes. Tom Sykes got a terrible start, letting Melandri, van der Mark and Alex Lowes get away at the front, with Xavi Fores and Jonathan Rea getting through from the third row. At turn two, van der Mark found gap underneath Melandri to take the lead while several other passes happened behind him as the reverse grid was straightened out. By the start of the second lap, van der Mark led Melandri, Fores, Rea and Lowes with a gap back to Davies who was fighting to keep his position. Between turns eight and nine, more places were traded and by turn twelve, thanks to an error by van der Mark, Melandri ended up in the lead, Fores passed the Dutchman a turn later, dragging Rea with him. Van der Mark took third place back off Rea into the first turn and held third place until turn sixteen, the sweeping turn at the end of the long straight. 

By lap four, all the gaps that had appeared in the top nine places, with Tom Sykes at the back, closed up and anyone in the top nine looked like they could gain or lose a spot without too much effort. At the end of the lap, Xavi Fores set the fastest lap and held that honour for a fraction of a second as Jonathan Rea set an even quicker one. Fores made up for losing the fastest lap by taking the lead from Marco Melandri into turn one. 

Chaz Davies, having made short work of Alex Lowes and bringing Michael Ruben Rinaldi with him, locked horns with Michael van der Mark but van der Mark refused to give in and the pair rode side by side through four turns with van der Mark coming out back in front, strongly defending his fourth place.

Jonathan Rea and Chaz Davies were the only riders who could make convincing passes at turn four this weekend and Rea continued this trend taking second place from Marco Melandri. As Xavi Fores and Rea charged down the fast straight, Melandri took advantage of the double slipstream to get a decent run, but the fast air enhanced his instability and his wobble returned with a vengeance. He stayed in third place. 

On lap eight, Xavi Fores crashed out taking a turn too fast, trying to maintain enough pace to keep Jonathan Rea from passing. Marco Melandri also had problems as Chaz Davies had clawed his way past the duelling Yamahas, again dragging Michael Ruben Rinaldi with him, and was looking for a way past his teammate. 

On lap twelve, the front three riders were all so close that it looked like any one of them could take the lead into turn one as they all lined up different trajectories through the complex, but they remained in the same positions, Rea, Melandri and Davies.

Chaz Davies then reminded us that he could make turn four passes as well and got past Marco Melandri in a pass that looked a little harder than one amongst teammates, but Davies gestured an apology or invitation to stay on his tail, indicating that he thought he had the pace to win and bring his teammate with him. 

Davies had found the pace he was lacking in the earlier laps.

As Chaz Davies probed for passes he could make stick, the front three all took completely different paths down the long straight, neither of the Ducatis seeking clean air. On lap fourteen, Davies found his spot, taking the lead from Jonathan Rea into turn one, but two corners later, Rea took it back only for Davies to once again stake his claim on turn five. Davies and Rea both rode in formation at a pace that should have ground out a lead from Marco Melandri in third place, but nobody told Melandri this and, having set the fastest lap on the penultimate lap, all three entered the last lap with the prospect for a win.

Chaz Davies maintained his fast pace and tried to break free from the other two, but Jonathan Rea managed to keep just outside of striking distance until turn twelve. Rea carried more entry speed and closed whatever gap remained to look like he was on a path to power out and pass Davies on the exit, but he was too quick and went wide, losing a fistful of tenths without losing second place to Marco Melandri.

All three contenders gave it their all, but the die had been cast and Chaz Davies took the win ahead of Jonathan Rea and Marco Melandri. Fourth place, some six seconds behind, was won by Alex Lowes, trading places with Michael van der Mark in a proper teammates battle, and Michael Ruben Rinaldi took sixth place and top independent rider. 

Jonathan Rea extended his championship lead, with Chaz Davies taking second place from Marco Melandri. Xavi Fores remains in fourth place, despite the lack of points, and Alex Lowes and Michael van der Mark remain in fifth and sixth place ahead of Tom Sykes.

Leon Camier, recovering from fractured ribs and a lung contusion after yesterday's crash, is in both eighth place and a stable condition.

2018 Motorland Aragon World Supersport Race Results: Great Starts

old_url: 

Sixteen laps around the five kilometre track of Motorland Aragon, with Yamahas having a clear advantage, World Supersport took place under a clear day with none of the weather issues of Friday.

Raffaele De Rosa got an exceptional start from the second row, charging his MV Agusta past the three Yamahas on the front row to take the lead ahead of an equally quick Jules Cluzel. Lucas Mahias, Sandro Cortese and Federico Caricasulo followed the second row hares throughout most of the first lap.

At the entrance to the long straight, on the exit to the turn fourteen and fifteen chicane, Jules Cluzel overtook Raffaele De Rosa at the start of the straight, Federico Caricasulo passed into turn 16, while Lucas Mahias and Sandro Cortese got past him around turn seventeen, the second half of the two-corner last corner. De Rosa started lap two in fifth place. 

On lap two, Randy Krummenacher, after a poor start, set the fastest lap behind sixth-placed Sheridan Morais. Krummenacher then dropped his bike on lap four, picked it up and recovered in twenty-sixth place. Meanwhile, Cortese and Caricasulo swapped back and forth, fighting over second place while Mahias did the same with De Rosa.

Jules Cluzel maintained the lead until midway through lap seven, when Sandro Cortese cleanly passed him and tried to escape at the front. A lap later, De Rosa's MV Agusta amongst the Yamahas run came to an end when his bike let the magic go-fast smoke escape from the engine and he coasted off the track, ending his weekend.

Federico Caricasulo climbed to second place and set the fastest lap on lap nine and Sandro Cortese set the fastest lap on lap ten, trying to escape the Italian behind him. As Cortese upped the pace, Caricasulo followed him and the pair started to ease away from Jules Cluzel and Lucas Mahias. 

On lap thirteen, Caricasulo tried to take the lead into turn one, but Cortese held on. A turn later, though, Caricasulo got past cleanly but Cortese remained glued to his tail until the straight where Cortese was close enough to slipstream past Caricasulo and take the lead back before the last corners. Caricasulo tried once more to pass at turn one, but Cortese had more grip left, held the lead and started to eke out a gap at the front. 

Jules Cluzel caught up with the flagging Caricasulo, but couldn't make any of his passing attempts work.

Sandro Cortese won his first race in World Supersport and his first win in five years in any class, and as the German national anthem rung out, everyone who doesn't follow MotoGP cried out "wait, he's not Italian?" in unison.

Federico Caricasulo and Jules Cluzel made up the remainder of the podium with Lucas Mahias a couple of seconds behind, his tyres not letting him keep up with the fight five laps from the end. Randy Krummenacher took advantage of a quick pace and other riders dropping out, to climb up to eleventh place and recover four points from a disastrous race. 

Mahias leads Cortese in the championship with Krummenacher's four points keeping him ahead of fourth-placed Caricasulo.

2018 Motorland Aragon World Supersport Superpole Results: Yamaha Dominance Expected

old_url: 

World Supersport Superpole one was delayed a few minutes by the red flag in World Superbike. Rob Hartog and Niki Tuuli were the two favourites for the top two qualifying spots in Superpole one. After unusual conditions yesterday, Yamahas held the five quickest qualifying times.

In Superpole one, after the break, Thomas Gradinger knocked Rob Hartog and Hikari Okubo down a place, with a 1'55.234. Ant West took second place just before the flag came out, and there were a few riders on a good enough pace to spoil his promotion, with Okubo and Niki Tuuli pushing West off the top. 

As the seconds ticked off, Sheridan Morais, flying his dual-nationality Portuguese flag instead of his usual South African one, pushed his way into the top two to join Hikari Okubo in Superpole two. 

Sandro Cortese opened Superpole two with a 1'54.503, only to have Lucas Mahias, who left the pits later than everyone else, slice a quarter of a second off it. Mahias headed back to the pits while everyone else put in a second lap that couldn't match the Frenchman's touchstone. Yamahas held the top five spots heading into the break. Sheridan Morais finally headed out of the pits, missing the first half of the session.

Enough time for two fast laps remained for everyone as they headed out for the second half, and after one lap Sandro Cortese and Randy Krummenacher took the top two spots only to be split by Lucas Mahias and Federico Caricasulo. As the flag came out, fast laps fell away and nobody was able to improve. 

Sandro Cortese, Lucas Mahias and Federico Caricasulo will make up the all-Yamaha front row for tomorrow's race with Raffaele de Rosa putting his MV Agusta parmi les fauves in fourth place ahead of Randy Krummenacher and Jules Cluzel.

2018 Motorland Aragon World Superbike Race One Results: Red Flag And A Seventeen Lap Restart

old_url: 

The eighteen lap World Superbike was red-flagged after three laps, after a crash involving Leon Camier, Lorenzo Savadori and Jordi Torres. Leon Camier was taken to the medical centre. Lorenzo Savadori was the only rider to make the seventeen lap restart. Vladimir Leonov missed the first start due to his bike not being ready after a crash in qualifying and didn't make the restart. PJ Jacobsen started from the back of the grid as he didn't make the sighting lap for the quick restart. 

Jonathan Rea took the lead from Marco Melandri into the first turn, followed by Alex Lowes who took second a turn later, with Chaz Davies and Michael van der Mark sparring behind Tom Sykes for fifth place. After one lap, Xavi Fores fought through to fifth place and took fourth off Sykes at the end of the lap where his speed down the straight helped him out. Jonathan Rea set the fastest lap on lap two only to have Marco Melandri to beat it a few tenths later. 

At the start of the third lap, Jonathan Rea went into the first turn a touch too quickly, letting Alex Lowes find a way past to take the lead. Behind them, further round the lap, at the chicane before the long, long straight, Xavi Fores passed Marco Melandri for third place, but Melandri powered past, writhing his Ducati down the fast section, the wobbles still present but not as prominent as in the last two rounds. 

On lap four, Jonathan Rea hounded Alex Lowes and, sliding both tyres out of turn four, he carried speed into turn five, putting himself back in the lead. Five turns later, Marco Melandri took second place from Lowes and Xavi Fores took third from him six turns after that. Lowes then had the third Ducati of Chaz Davies to deal with.

After five laps, Rea, Melandri and Fores had a gap to Davies who had a gap to Michael van der Mark and Lowes, Michael Ruben Rinaldi and Tom Sykes. Rinaldi and Lowes fought over sixth place with Rinaldi winning out into turn one of lap eight. 

Xavi Fores had a much wider line round sweeping corners than everyone, apart from Alex Lowes who took similar wide-in, fast-out lines, which game him a quicker route out of the last corner, a technique he used at the end of lap eight to take second place from Marco Melandri and on lap nine to power him down into turn one to take the lead from Jonathan Rea. 

Xavi Fores led Jonathan Rea and Macro Melandri with Chaz Davies closing the gap behind the leading trio to under a second and keeping the fight for fourth place over three seconds back. 

On lap twelve, Jonathan Rea had his pace back and he charged past Xavi Fores down the long straight and held the position to the line, only to have to deal with Fores's superior exit speed onto the straight. Rea bounced his Kawasaki's rear up and down as he braked exceedingly hard into the first turn and kept hold of the lead in the first turn. Rea had the lead with five laps to go and was entering the section of the track where he was faster than the Ducatis. A lap later, he had nine tenths of a second lead over the three Ducatis behind him, Chaz Davies having joined Fores and Marco Melandri. 

Lap fourteen, Melandri and Rea were fast, with Melandri taking second place into turn sixteen, only to have Fores find a gap Melandri left around the last corner to take second place back. With less than three laps left, Davies passed Melandri on the second corner, turn fifteen, but Melandri had room to take third back by the last corner. A lap later, he did the same move a turn earlier, on the first turn of the chicane, holding this move down the straight, losing it on the exit, but Melandri went wide into turn one and Davies took the advantage to bring the fight to Xavi Fores.

On the last lap, with the Ducati fight a couple of seconds behind Jonathan Rea, Chaz Davies fought with Xavi Fores for second place as Marco Melandri dropped from the fight. Davies took second place on the second corner of the chicane, turn fifteen, diving to the left side of the straight to cover entry into turn sixteen, but Xavi Fores switched to his fast exit line, but Chaz Davies kept his speed up and took second place behind Jonathan Rea by two hundredths off a second from Fores. 

Melandri took fourth place ahead of Michael van der Mark, Tom Sykes and Alex Lowes. Michael Ruben Rinaldi finished his debut race in eighth place, seven seconds clear of the hard-fought battle for ninth.

Joanthan Rea leads the championship fourteen points ahead of Marco Melandri with Chaz Davies and Xavi Fores making it three DUcatis behind the Kawasaki.

2018 Motorland Aragon World Superbike Superpole Results: Dry Weather Abounds

old_url: 

Superpole one was on a dry track with Michael Ruben Rinaldi and Eugene Laverty's replacement Davide Giugliano the quickest of the slower men going into the session.

After one lap, Toprak Razgatlioglu was the quickest with a 1'51.883, a time that wouldn't have been enough to qualify for superpole two, but was over a second quicker than his best time yesterday.

Loris Baz and Vladimir Leonov pushed him down to third after another lap was banked, with everyone apart from Rinaldi pitting in, putting himself in fourth place before joining everyone else for the tea break. 

As everyone rolled out, with just over four minutes remaining, everyone should get two fast timed laps before the session ends.

Loris Baz defended his top spot in the word possible way, walking away from a crash on his out lap and ending his qualifying. Vladimir Leonov recorded a 1'51.294 with a well-timed slipstream down the back straight to take the top spot, with Jake Gagne sneaking into second place.

As the flag came out, Michael Ruben Rinaldi was first to cross the line with a 1'50.568, but nobody on track was on a pace to challenge the Ducati man. Rinaldi would be joined by Leonov in Superpole two while Baz's unfortunate crash would put him in nineteenth place on the grid for race one.

Jonathan Rea and Eugene Laverty are usually the first riders out for Superpole, but with Laverty recuperating until Donington, Rea set out alone. Rea set a 1'50.075, hitting 307kmh through the speed trap, over six tenths of a second quicker than second-quickest Michael van der Mark, before pitting in for an early cuppa and a qualifying tyre. Chaz Davies and Vladimir Leonov were the only other riders to put in after just one lap, both sitting at the bottom of the timing screens.

Chaz Davies, on his first fast lap with the qualifying tyre on, carried too much speed through turn two, sliding the front and crashing. He was sat in eleventh place ahead of only Leonov when he crashed. He was joined later by Lorenzo Savadori.

Jordi Torres briefly held the top spot until Rea recorded his first lap on the faster rubber, dragging Xavi Fores to second place behind him. Marco Melandri put in a faster lap, with only Tom Sykes in a position to unseat him, but in spite of being quickest in the first three sectors, the last sector is Ducati territory and Melandri held on to pole position.

The front row for race one will be Marco Melandri, Jonathan Rea and Tom Sykes in front of Xavi Fores holding off the Yamahas of Alex Lowes and Michael van der Mark on the second row.

2018 Motorland Aragon World Supersport FP2 Results: Krummenacher Pips Mahias In Dry Session

old_url: 

As the weather was much more conducive to fast riding, the laptimes were significantly better than in this morning's session. Lucas Mahias looked like he would end the session quickest but was just beaten by Randy Krummenacher. Sandro Cortese, Federico Caricasulo and Jules Cluzel made it an all-Yamaha top-five, and unlike this morning, all riders were within the 107% of the fastest lap required to qualify.
