2017 Superprestigio Superfinal Result: JD Beach Triumphs In Close Battle

JD Beach has won the fifth edition of the Barcelona Superprestigio indoor flat track race. The American passed Toni Elias in the first couple of laps and led for almost the entire 16 laps of the Superprestigio Superfinal. Beach entered the Superfinal as favorite, having won all three of the Open class final races to face off against the best of the roadracing world in the Superprestigio class.

Briar Bauman, the second American entry, finished in second, not far behind Beach, having fought his way through from fourth in the early laps. He took over second from Spanish flat tracker Ferran Cardus with a very firm pass on the last lap, demoting Cardus to a very close third. Toni Elias was the best road racer, finishing fourth ahead of Fabio Di Giannantonio.

Alberto Arenas finished sixth, while Guillermo Cano ended in seventh ahead of Remy Gardner. Cano and Gardner clashed in the first corner on the opening lap, putting them out of contention.

The Palau San Jordi was notably emptier than in previous years, the obvious explanation being the absence of Marc Márquez, who was responsible for the event being founded. Márquez withdrew in late November, saying that he needed a rest after a hard and tiring season. With an indoor flat track race scheduled to take place on 15th December 2018 in Paris, it is likely that this was the last race here in Barcelona.

The crowds may have been smaller, but the level of competition was markedly higher than in the early years. The general level of flat track racing in Europe has been raised enormously since the first event back in 2014, the racing being closer and offering the Americans who have flown over to race some real competition. Cardus, in particular, was a real threat to Beach and Bauman, and obviously capable of more.

Jerez WorldSBK & MotoGP Test Combined Times: Dovizioso, Rea Fastest From Jerez Test Week

old_url: 

With five days of testing complete at Jerez, the balance can be drawn up for the riders in all three series which were present. Conditions were almost perfect, with five days of sunshine and reasonably warm temperatures for the time of year. The track resurfacing, which took place during the summer, helped immensely, especially for the MotoGP teams, as they rode here on the old surface back in May.

The temperatures suited the WorldSBK riders better than the MotoGP teams. Track temperatures were closer to those prevalent at the WorldSBK weekend back in October, but nearly 20°C cooler than in May for MotoGP. Michelin had brought the same compounds used back in May, though there were no complaints from the riders.

Andrea Dovizioso finished the test as fastest overall, the factory Ducati rider a quarter of a second under the pole record set by Jorge Lorenzo back in 2015, and six tenths faster than the pole time from this year's race. Cal Crutchlow was second fastest overall, a tenth of a second under the pole record on the LCR Honda, and a tenth faster than Jorge Lorenzo on the other factory Ducati. 

Jonathan Rea was fastest of the WorldSBK riders, and fourth fastest overall on the Kawasaki ZX-10R. The Kawasaki man was vastly faster than he had been at the Spanish round of World Superbikes: a whole second under the lap record set by Marco Melandri in October, and just two hundredths of a second slower than Jorge Lorenzo's MotoGP pole record. 

Rea was one of three WorldSBK riders under the series pole record. Tom Sykes was a third of a second slower than his teammate, and eighth fastest overall, while Pata Yamaha rider Alex Lowes was three tenths slower than Sykes and eleventh fastest of the 39 riders who had lapped the track at some point during the week.

The fastest times set by each rider during the week appear below, in a list of all classes combined, as well as sorted separately by class. Below that appears a table where the riders are sorted by improvement over the different days of the test, once again both as a combined list as well as sorted by class.

Jerez WorldSBK & MotoGP Test Thursday Times: Dovizioso Beats Crutchlow, Melandri Edges Lowes

old_url: 

Andrea Dovizioso finished as fastest on Thursday at Jerez, the factory Ducati rider using the morning to break Jorge Lorenzo's pole record from 2015 - though as this is a private test, this is only an unofficial time, and so Lorenzo's record will stand until the race here in May - going over a quarter of a second faster than Lorenzo did on the Yamaha two years ago. Cal Crutchlow was second fastest, also under the pole record, having spent a full and busy day jumping between three different bikes and racking up a grand total of 90 laps, more than any other rider on the grid. 

Jorge Lorenzo ended as third fastest, just outside his 2015 lap record, a little ahead of Andrea Iannone on the Suzuki. Pol Espargaro ended the day in fifth, the KTM showing well at Jerez, while Alex Rins was sixth on the second Suzuki. Tito Rabat was quick on the Avintia Ducati, the only rider to do a full race simulation, and less than three quarters of a second slower than Dovizioso.

Marco Melandri was the quickest of the WorldSBK riders, the Aruba.it Ducati man a tenth faster than Alex Lowes on the Pata Yamaha. Leon Camier impressed once again on the Red Bull Honda, fractionally slower than Lowes, and running consistently in the low 1'40s. Chaz Davies was absent, after suffering a knee injury in a big crash at Turn 1 at the end of Wednesday. The Kawasaki riders were also absent, taking a day off before returning to the track on Friday.

The track will be a good deal emptier on Friday, the last day of the test. The Factory Ducati MotoGP team are leaving, as are the Honda MotoGP teams and Avintia Ducati. The WorldSBK teams will be staying on, as will Pramac Ducati and all of the MotoGP manufacturers who are not subject to testing restrictions: Suzuki, KTM, and Aprilia.

Jerez WorldSBK & MotoGP Test 1pm Thursday Times: Dovizioso Under Pole Record

old_url: 

It is another busy day at Jerez, with World Superbikes and MotoGP on track. Andrea Dovizioso is currently fastest, having dropped under Jorge Lorenzo's 2015 pole record thanks in no small part to the new grippy surface at the track. Dovizioso's Ducati teammate Jorge Lorenzo is currently second quickest, just outside his pole record, while Andrea Iannone is third. Tito Rabat continues to impress, currently fourth quickest ahead of Cal Crutchlow and Pol Espargaro.

Alex Lowes is the fastest of the WorldSBK riders, the Pata Yamaha rider two seconds off the pace of Dovizioso, and ahead of Leon Camier and Michael van der Mark. But the top three from the 2017 championship are absent today: neither Kawasaki rider has a lot of parts to test, and Rea is resting his neck after a big off on Wednesday. Chaz Davies was having a precautionary MRI on the knee he injured yesterday in a big crash at Turn 1. Both Ducati and Kawasaki should be back on track on Friday.

Jerez WorldSBK & MotoGP Test Wednesday Final Times: Iannone Leads A Close Field

old_url: 

Andrea Iannone has topped the timesheets on the first day of combined testing for the MotoGP and WorldSBK classes at Jerez. The Suzuki rider made a push in the afternoon to take over top spot, and stayed there to the end. Cal Crutchlow took second spot, despite a very busy test schedule working on three different bikes (a 2017 bike, and two iterations of a 2018 bike), while Andrea Dovizioso just edged ahead of Ducati teammate Jorge Lorenzo to take third. The top four were close, however: just 0.138 separated Iannone from Lorenzo.

Pol Espargaro impressed during the day, working on rear grip and a swingarm tested at Valencia, to finish 0.362 behind Iannone. A very strong showing from the KTM rider, coming despite a tumble in the early afternoon at Turn 3. Espargaro was not the only faller: Jonathan Rea fell at Turn 12, Tito Rabat fell at Turn 5, and Chaz Davies crashed at Turn 1 near the end of the session.

Tom Sykes was the quickest of the WorldSBK riders, three tenths faster than his Kawasaki teammate Jonathan Rea. Marco Melandri was third quickest in the WorldSBK class, a second slower than Sykes and with the exact same time as Alex Lowes on the Pata Yamaha.

Alex Marquez also got a day on a MotoGP bike, riding the Marc VDS Honda RC213V for most of the day, with expert guidance from brother Marc, present in civilian clothes and out of his usual Repsol uniform. Alex Marquez shared time on the bike with Honda test rider Takumi Takahashi, the pair filling in for Tom Luthi, who is still recovering from injuries sustained during the flyaways.

Jerez WorldSBK & MotoGP Test 1pm Wednesday Times: Iannone Leads Sykes

old_url: 

The Jerez circuit is packed, with 27 riders from 3 different series all cutting laps. Andrea Iannone is fastest overall on the Suzuki GSX-RR MotoGP bike, already under Jorge Lorenzo race lap record. Tom Sykes has also matched that feat on the Kawasaki WorldSBK machine, a sign that the resurfaced track is a good deal quicker.

Cal Crutchlow has a busy work schedule, with three different bikes in the LCR Honda garage: one 2017 standard bike, and two variations of the 2018 prototype debuted at Valencia. Crutchlow is third quickest, ahead of the Ducatis MotoGP team of Jorge Lorenzo and Andrea Dovizioso.

Jonathan Rea is sixth quickest overall, and second fastest WorldSBK rider. Rea took a tumble shortly after noon, falling at the very fast Turn 12, though he escaped without obvious injury. Pol Espargaro was another faller, crashing at Turn 3 and briefly causing a red flag, though the KTM MotoGP man was perfectly fine.

Testing will continue until 6pm this evening.
