MotoGP Race And Practice Results
With the first two races today being exciting ones, the third race didn't need to be exciting for this year to be better than last year. But it was.
Max Biaggi lunged for the lead at turn one but went wide. Chaz Davies took the gap and the lead and was followed through by Sylvain Guintoli, but as they exited the turn, Guintoli pushed Max Biaggi who hit Tom Sykes. Biaggi crashed out while Sykes recovered in seventeenth place. Alex Lowes managed to avoid the mess and ended up behind Sykes with a long battle ahead.
Jonathan Rea took second place from Sylvain Guintoli with Jordi Torres and Michael van der Mark taking fourth then fifth place from Leon Haslam. Unlike race one, Rea couldn't keep up with Davies and the gap to first place grew by a few tenths a lap. Torres took third off Guintoli into lap three while Sykes scythed through the slower riders to eleventh place.
Five laps in, with Davies over a second ahead of Rea, and Tom Sykes recovering to eight place, the chances of Rea winning the title this weekend were diminishing. He needed to finish ahead of Davies and eleven points ahead of Sykes. A lap later, Rea now two seconds behind Davies as Tom Sykes took seventh place, the chances were slipping away.
Then, Tom Sykes lost front grip at turn five and dropped his bike. He recovered in nineteenth place and would have it all to do again. Rea's luck changed dramatically.
Chaz Davies, however, had different plans. At half race distance, Davies had a two and a half second lead over Rea, himself around a second and a half ahead of Jordi Torres. Torres in third had built a cushion of over four seconds from Sylvain Guintoli in fourth and looked to be set to match his best ever result in the championship, closer to the leaders than he'd ever been.
As Tom Sykes caught Christophe Ponsson and passed him for fifteenth position and a point, Chaz Davies noticed his tyres dropping off, at the same time as in every test and race he'd done at this track. His pace dropped a little and Jonathan Rea in second place maintained his pace, his smoother style kinder on the tyres.
Rea had settled for second place, knowing that this would postpone his championship another seven weeks, in Jerez, Spain on the other side of the summer break, but then he saw the gap closing. His team pointed out the drop in Davies's pace and he decided to go for it. Even if he crashed out, with Sykes only due a point or two, he had enough of a points lead to have a go.
With two laps to go, Davies had a two and a half second lead. A lap later, that was halved. A sector later, half a second off, another sector, another half second. Rea passed Davies on the back straight and once again, it would come down to the last corner on the last lap.
Rea went in first, sideways but there was enough of a gap for Davies to be in front by a few inches at the apex.
The pair collided.
Both riders steeled themselves and charged for the corner exit, recovering from the impact immediately. Davies ahead, he drifted inwards on the outside of the exit of the corner, removing the faster line from Rea's list of options so Rea took to the pit lane entrance to widen his exit line, but it was not enough. Once more Chaz Davies made good use of the Ducati Panigale's new exhaust system and powered to the flag, winning by nine hundredths of a second, the exact same as the World Supersport was won by.
Chaz Davies won the race and took second place off Tom Sykes in the championship chase and, in doing so, held Jonathan Rea off from winning the title by six points. Jordi Torres in third finished just five seconds from Davies and, equalling his best result of the year, finished closer to victory than he'd ever been. Sylvain Guintoli and Michael van der Mark in fourth and fifth gave Honda their best race since Assen and Guintoli's best result of the year.

Kenan Sofuoglu leads the title chase by twenty points from Jules Cluzel going into this fourteen lap race.
Kenan Sofuoglu led into turn one but went in too hot, ran wide and ended up in sixth place. Jules Cluzel led PJ Jacobsen and Kyle Smith but Jacobsen took the lead shortly after. On the second lap, Lorenzo Zanetti took third place from Smith and Kenan Sofuoglu took fourth shortly after.
As the rain flags came out on lap three, Kenan Sofuoglu took third place from a battling Lorenzo Zanetti. The rain, once again, stayed away.
Jacobsen and Cluzel saw their lead disappear as Sofuoglu bought them on the fifth lap, bringing Zanetti with him. At half race distance, Sofuoglu tried a pass on Cluzel, but couldn't hold onto the second place as Cluzel took it back off him.
Ten laps in, an inseparable Jacobsen and Cluzel finally broke free from Sofuoglu and Zanetti and started building a gap as Zanetti closed in on Sofuoglu. Zanetti caught Sofuoglu on the penultimate lap as Cluzel tried to find a way past Jacobsen on turn fifteen, sweeping round for a faster exit, but Jacobsen held the lead.
On the last lap, Zanetti sneaked past Sofuoglu, but Sofuoglu clawed third back. Jacobsen held enough of a gap from Cluzel, having better straight line speed where it mattered and for both pairs of riders, it would come down to the last corner.
PJ Jacobsen, expecting Cluzel to try the sweeping line again, went for the same plan, only to have Cluzel sneak through in the inside as he didn't cover the apex. Cluzel closed the throttle slightly exiting the corner in an attempt to slow Jacobsen down, knowing he'd have him by the line if he couldn't disrupt him, but Jacobsen was aiming to pass already and didn't get slowed by Cluzel.
PJ Jacobsen won his first World Supersport race, the first American victory in the class, by nine hundredths of a second. Since switching to the Honda, he has come third, second and first.
Jules Cluzel was a little angry at being outplayed by Jacobsen, but had calmed down by Parc Fermé, seeing Lorenzo Zanetti joining him, having passed Kenan Sofuoglu on the last corner. Sofuoglu's lead in the championship was reduced to thirteen points from Cluzel and twenty-eight from Jacobsen.

The track was cooler than expected as the overcast weather held the sun off. Jonathan Rea, Max Biaggi and Leon Haslam chose a different front tyre to the rest of the grid. Last year, this track had events that determined the outcome of the championship and, with Rea able to leave this weekend crowned champion, this year seemed to be no different.
As the lights went out, Max Biaggi charged at the first turn ahead of everyone else, but was swamped on the brakes by Tom Sykes, Chaz Davies and a hard-charging Jonathan Rea from the third row. As Sykes set the pace at the front, Rea passed Davies but was passed back immediately, and his next attempt on the 920m back straight also didn't work as Davies's bike had the power to hold off the Kawasaki.
On the second lap, Tom Sykes started to make a break at the front and was on a quicker pace than everyone else. At the start of the third lap, he had built a gap of over a second and a half. Max Biaggi was passed by both Jordi Torres and Leon Haslam on lap three, as the front three riders built a gap of over a second from the three Aprilias battling for fourth.
In pit lane, there was a flurry of activity as teams prepared for bad weather, but nobody on track slowed down. It turned out to be a false alarm as, in spite of the temperature dropping, the rain would stay away this race.
Tom Sykes maintained his pace and built a three second gap at the lead by the seventh lap of sixteen. Chaz Davies and Jonathan Rea were still glued together in second and third, with over three seconds until Jordi Torres who had escaped from the struggle between Leon Haslam and Max Biaggi. Biaggi passed Haslam, but it took two passes to make one that could stick and Haslam took fifth place back unkindly a lap later. Biaggi returned the favour, but once again, Haslam forced his way past. The two were then joined by Sylvain Guintoli, taking advantage of the drop in pace that a duel causes. At the end of lap eight, on the long back straight, Biaggi powered up his disposable engine and powered past Haslam, leaving him to fend off an ever Sylvain Guintoli.
Tom Sykes at the front started losing a tenth of a second a lap, but looked to be managing his lead as Chaz Davies wrestled with his Ducati while Jonathan Rea was much smoother on his Kawasaki, neither visibly faster than the other. Even though Rea looked smoother, Davies was just slightly better on the brakes. At the end of lap ten, Rea tried a pass out of the slipstream on the back straight into turn fifteen, but his increased speed made him barrel past both Davies and his braking point. Davies took second place back by staying on the right line and keeping his cool.
Tom Sykes lost another tenth at the beginning of lap eleven, and it didn't look like he was managing his lead any more as the gap to Davies started dropping rapidly. A gap of almost three seconds became a lead of under two seconds on the next lap and during lap twelve, three quarters of the way through the race, Chaz Davies and Jonathan Rea caught Tom Sykes, his tyres spent too soon.
Davies passed Sykes and was followed by Rea, but Sykes fought back and grabbed second place back. Almost ten seconds further back, Max Biaggi had caught and passed Jordi Torres.
With Tom Sykes lapping well over two seconds slower than the riders behind him, Biaggi started closing the gap and, as Rea closed in on Davies at the front, caught Sykes on the penultimate lap, Sykes's pace having drastically dropped even further.
On the last lap, ten seconds behind the leaders, Max Biaggi passed Tom Sykes for a podium place just as Jonathan Rea pushed past Chaz Davies into turn five. Rea then rode defensively, making it hard for Davies to find a way past and it looked like Rea would get another win.
At the end of the back straight, Rea overcooked the entry into turn fifteen, the hairpin onto the start/finish straight, and went wide, letting Davies through. Rea kept the throttle open and used the wider line give him better exit speed as Davies took a tactical line. Rea powered past Davies and took victory by twelve hundredths of a second.
Rea's victory helped his title prospects as Sylvain Guintoli took fourth place off Tom Sykes on the last lap. Chaz Davies in second closed to within ten points of Sykes and, Max Biaggi in third is the oldest World Superbike rider to get a podium, the seventy-first of his career.
Jonathan Rea will win the title today if he scores eleven or more points than his teammate in race two.

World Supersport Qualifying brought a few surprises inclusing an interesting tactical play borrowed from Marc Marquez.
PJ Jacobsen set a blistering laptime of 2'08.244 halfway through the session that was good enough for pole position, if not the outright record. Jacobsen's first pole continues his good form on the Honda, putting him in the mix for a possible win. Kenan Sofuoglu put aside his personal tragedy and qualified in second place after pushing hard all session to try to beat Jacobsen's time.
Jules Cluzel had a plan, however, to push Sofuoglu further down the grid by towing Gino Rea behind him, gifting him a fast lap as a buffer between himself and Sofuoglu, but the tactic didn't work beyond promoting Rea to sixth on the grid behind Robbie Rolfo and Lorenzo Zanetti. Cluzel blamed his third place on a lack of good tyres when they mattered instead of a last minute failed attempt to throw speedbumps Sofuoglu's way.
Kyle Smith was seventh quickest, in spite of a crash.

Superpole at the longest track of the year, with laps of over two minutes round the 5.543KM circuit, would not allow riders and teams as much time to relax. With no time to waste, and a lap too long for two good laps on the qualifying tyre, riders would get two laps on a race tyre and maybe only one on the qualifier. Ayrton Badovini missed the session after he got a concussion when he crashed with Matteo Baiocco in FP3. He will likely declared unfit for the races tomorrow.
Superpole one was opened with Alex Lowes on a race tyre setting a 2'05.296 with Michael van der Mark second quickest after everyone completed their first lap. Lowes on his second lap improved slightly as everyone headed in to get their stickier one-lap tyre. Riders started heading out with four and a half minutes left, enough time for some of them to get two laps out of the qualifying tyre, but with the usual jostling for clear track or hunting for a tow, very few riders were in a position for more than one flying lap.
Leon Camier set the benchmark on the qualifier with a 2'05.051, but Matteo Baiocco was two thirds of a second quicker, with a 2'04.380 in spite of dodging Leandro Mercado's skidding bike as it crossed the track on its side without its rider. Alex Lowes was the other rider to progress to the second session. Michael van der Mark and Leon Camier missed out on promotion, van der Mark qualifying twelfth if Badovini doesn't race, while Camier will head the fifth row.
The second Superpole session had eleven riders, missing Badovini, competing for the front four rows. Jordi Torres on race rubber set a 2'03.890, the quickest lap of the weekend, nearly matched by Tom Sykes only a twentieth of a second slower. Jonathan Rea. Leon Haslam and Sylvain Guintoli headed straight back into the pits, not bothering with a second lap on race rubber after filling out the top five.
As the quicker tyres were fitted, Chaz Davies was the first rider out before Sylvain Guintoli and Leon Haslam. Guintoli was the first rider to beat Torres's time and Jonathan Rea was on track to beat him, but made two errors, saving slides, and was only fifth quickest as he crossed the line.
Tom Sykes however, came out and quietly set a 2'03.240 and stole pole position, his 28th, as his teammate Rea was pushed down to an eventual seventh place, keeping Sykes's slim hopes of the title win alive.
Jordi Torres got his best start of the year, setting the second quickest lap of the weekend on his only lap with qualifying tyres.
Sylvain Guintoli took third place, his first visit to Parc Fermé this year, with Max Biaggi, Alex Lowes and Chaz Davies making up the second row.
