2021 Assen World Superbike FP1 Result: Redding Leads Rea And Ducatis

Scott Redding is quickest at Assen, a traditionally Ducati track, with Jonathan Rea second quickest ahead of the Ducatis of Chaz Davies and Michael Ruben Rinaldi. Toprak Razgatlioglu is the only other rider within half a second of Redding's best time while Tom Sykes held off talk-of-the-town Garrett Gerloff, who has just re-signed with Yamaha for another year.

2021 Donington World Superbike Race 2 Result: Bumps And Bruises

As the riders left their garages to setup on the grid, the rain came down, but it had stopped by the time the teams left the riders on the grid to race and everyone settled on the softest tyre as the track hit 35ºC. 

Jonathan Rea hit turn one first, but it was Toprak Razgatlioglu who got the best start, slotting into second place into turn one, with Tom Sykes, Garrett Gerloff, Leon Haslam and Michael van der Mark behind him. Halfway round the opening lap, Razgatlioglu tried to pass Rea, but his attempt at Coppice didn't work. On lap two, Razgatlioglu set the fastest lap as he followed Rea at the front. The leading pair had Tom Sykes with them who kept up with the leaders, claiming that he saw what Razgatlioglu did on Saturday and just copied his tyre choice. 

Tom Sykes said he regretted his tyre choice as the rear was sliding all over the place but he thanked extra Yorkshire puddings for his ability to sit further back on his BMW to increase the rear grip. 

Toprak Razgatlioglu set the fastest lap on laps two, three and four, and finally got the pass into coppice he'd been trying all race to work, taking the lead from Jonathan Rea. Over a second behind Tom Sykes, Garrett Gerloff passed Leon Haslam on the outside to take fourth position, with Michael van der Mark, Alex Lowes and Scott Redding on his tail. 

Lap five, Jonathan Rea set the fastest lap behind Toprak Razgatlioglu, looking for a way past into the Foggy Esses, but Razgatlioglu on the brakes is very tricky to pass. 

On a short, four kilometre track, without any long straights, and a top speed below 280kph, even less if you're not on a Ducati, the riders surprisingly spend a third of the lap on the brakes, and Brembo rates Donington as one of the hardest braking tracks of the year. When braking is one's strength, like it is with Razgatlioglu, it's not surprising one can perform well here. 

Rea kept in close to Razgatlioglu bit on lap six, he was a bit too close into the Esses at the end of the back straight, and he had to avoid the Yamaha's rear wheel, a mistake that only cost him a half second. It took Rea two more laps, one of which was the fastest lap of the race, to close on his championship rival, and two laps later, Razgatlioglu missed the first apex into Coppice and went wide enough to kiss the kerb, giving Rea the only invitation he needed to take the lead back. 

At half race distance, with Rea and Razgatlioglu almost three seconds clear of Garrett Gerloff and Tom Sykes, Gerloff finally catching and passing the Yorkshire pudding and tea-fuelled Tom Sykes, Jonathan Rea hit the ripple on the track between Mcleans and Coppice, lifting his rear off the track as his front suspension was unloading, putting too much pressure on his front tyre and sending him out of the lead of the race and the championship and into the gravel. He recovered in twentieth position, but gave Razgatlioglu a comfortable two and a half second margin in the lead. Rea picked up his Kawasaki and returned to the race, but he was in twentieth place, dead last, an insurmountable twenty five seconds off nineteenth place.

Toprak Razgatlioglu maintained his two to three second lead over Garrett Gerloff who eventually put a gap between himself and Tom Sykes, with Scott Redding closing on Sykes but unable to get close enough to even try to pass. On the last lap, into the Melbourne hairpin, he tried a lunge, but was too hot going in and he missed the fast line and left Sykes to get his first feature-length race podium in almost two years. 

Toprak Razgatlioglu took a decisive victory, with plenty of fuel left to grab, wave and discard a Turkish flag before returning to parc fermé, ahead of Garrett Gerloff, making it a Yamaha 1-2 and cementing Gerloff's place at the top of the independents, and sixth place in the championship. A jubilant Tom Sykes of old secured third place but hat to concede sixth place in the championship to Gerloff. Scott Redding's fourth place returned him to third place, three points ahead of Alex Lowes but sixty four points off Jonathan Rea in second place.

Toprak Razgatlioglu now leads the 2021 World Superbike championship by two points as Jonathan Rea records his first race of the season off the podium and out of the points. The rain was kind enough not to interfere in the racing.

2021 Donington World Superbike Superpole Race Result: Moist

Another wet morning brought out intermediate and wet tyres for the ten laps around the hard-braking short Donington Park. 

Jonathan Rea took the lead from pole position when the lights went out, with his teammate Alex Lowes working his way past the BMWs of Michael van der Mark and Tom Sykes. Garrett Gerloff held off Leon Haslam, Lucas Mahias and Toprak Razgatlioglu. Into the old hairpin, a hairpin in name only, Alex Lowes lost the front and crashed out of second place chasing his teammate for the lead. Tito Rabat, much further back, also crashed out while Jonathan Rea set the fastest lap in the lead. Scott Redding dropped down to seventeenth place, ten seconds off the pace on his full wet tyres, eschewing the intermediates he hates. 

Garrett Gerloff in fifth place set the fastest lap on lap three, behind Tom Sykes and Leon Haslam, while Jonathan Rea held a lead of over two seconds over Michael van der Mark. Jonathan Rea set the fastest lap on lap four, drawing out his lead to three seconds as Lucas Mahias joined the riders in front to make a five-bike fight for second place. 

On lap five, the pace increased, with several riders setting the fastest laps, with Gerloff ending up with the plaudits that lap as van der Mark, Sykes, Haslam and Gerloff dropped Mahias off a second behind them. Toprak Razgatlioglu was over a second behind the Frenchman. Tom Sykes tried to pass van der Mark at the Melbourne hairpin but he couldn't hold it, going wide at the exit, but his second attempt into Goddards, the last turn, he neatly slotted under his teammate to take second place at the head of the battle. 

Jonathan Rea and Tom Sykes increased the pace on lap seven, as Rea's lead held at over three seconds, but Toprak Razgatlioglu set the fastest lap hunting down Lucas Mahias and a second row start for the afternoon's race. Razgatlioglu passed Mahias into the first turn of lap nine of ten, but had a gap of over a second to close on Garrett Gerloff's fifth place. Gerloff had Leon Haslam and the BMWs ahead of him and needed a last lap effort to improve his place, but there was nothing there for him and he ended up in fifth place.

Jonathan Rea won the ten lap sprint and earned pole position for race two, with the BMWs of Tom Sykes and Michael van der Mark joining him on the podium and front row. Leon Haslam, Garrett Gerloff and Toprak Razgatlioglu made up the second row ahead of Lucas Mahias, Chaz Davies and Andrea Locatelli. Alex Lowes and Scott Redding would start from the fourth row of the grid, finishing fourteenth and eighteenth respectively.

Jonathan Rea's win extended his lead over Toprak Razgatlioglu to twenty three points and the third-placed pair of Scott Redding and Alex Lowes scored no points, ending fifty four points off Razgatlioglu's second place.

2021 Donington World Superbike Race 1 Result: Drying Track Makes Racing Tricky

Superbikes return to Donington Park, home of the first World Superbike race in 1988, and the UK brought out its finest dreary weather for Saturday, punishing riders throughout the morning's Superpole session. The rain eased off before the race and the track was dry enough for slick tyres, although still too cold for most riders to choose the SCX sprint tyre that's been favoured in recent races. In the absence of Supersport racing, with Brexit and Covid coinciding to cause uncertainty in the costs when the calendar was being written up, the wet weekend feels a little less packed than usual, especially with the circuit limiting attendance to just four thousand spectators. 

Jonathan Rea sat in pole, as he has in every Saturday race of 2021, and got a good start, sweeping across the track ahead of the BMWs, but he was soon joined at the front by talk-of-the-town Toprak Razgatlioglu who scythed his way from thirteenth place on the grid, to separate the BMWs of Tom Sykes and Michael van der Mark in spectacular style before taking second place from Sykes and catching Rea. Garrett Gerloff, Leon Haslam, Alex Lowes and Scott Redding rounded out the top eight on the first lap.

On lap two, Scott Redding crashed at Craner Curves, sliding the rear and ending his race from seventh place, while Toprak Razgatlioglu caught Jonathan Rea and passed him into Coppice, the last corner before the short straight to Foggy's Esses. Razgatlioglu nearly conceded the lead back at the Melbourne hairpin, demonstrating that his choice of the SCX, one of only three riders to take the softer tyre, was a risky one with the track as cold as it was. In spite of this, he set the fastest lap.

Razgatlioglu had Rea right behind him, but Rea them lost control of his bike and took to the grass around the old part of the track, but he kept his bike upright and rejoined the track just over three seconds behind Razgatlioglu's Yamaha, with Michael van der Mark on his tail. Tom Sykes was a second further back, dealing with Leon Haslam and Alex Lowes, with Garrett Gerloff threatening to join them. 

Razgatlioglu set the fastest laps on laps three, four and five, but Rea took them off him on laps four and five as he tried to close the gap and recover the time he lost in his off track excursion. Trading fastest laps again, Jonathan Rea escaped Michael van der Mark and closed the gap to Toprak Razgatlioglu to just over a second, only to slide the rear and buck his Kawasaki, nearly losing the rear, but losing a second and a half instead. A lap later, he nearly crashed again at Redgate, turn one, while Razgatlioglu set the fastest lap again.

At half race distance, the track was drying out and the pace increased. Tom Sykes closed in on Michael van der Mark and a five bike train fighting for third place evolved out of the drying track. 

When Tom Sykes caught Michael van der Mark, the pair touched briefly as Sykes took third place from van der Mark, and Alex Lowes took fourth place from him a few turns later, at Coppice. Garrett Gerloff took advantage of a mistake by van der Mark to take fifth from him before the lap was out and van der Mark went from third to sixth in one lap. 

Jonathan Rea took the fastest lap on lap twelve, only to have Razgatlioglu claim it back a lap later, and the lap after that, building a four second gap over Rea. Alex Lowes, over ten seconds behind, took third place from Sykes at the Melbourne hairpin, and Garrett Gerloff followed him. When Lowes made a mistake at Goddards, the second hairpin at the end of the lap, Gerloff snuck under him and cleanly took third place from him.

At the front of the race, Razgatlioglu caught and passed his first back marker, Jonas Folger, who looked a little surprised to have company. On lap sixteen, Garrett Gerloff crashed out of third place, losing the front at Goddards. He picked his Yamaha up and recovered in eighth place only to have that taken from him by Lucas Mahias. Gerloff struck back and took eighth back and chased down Alvaro Bautista in seventh place, eventually passing him on lap nineteen when Bautista went wide into Goddards. 

The last three laps ticked off with Razgatlioglu almost five seconds clear of Rea who had eleven seconds advantage over his teammate Alex Lowes. Tom Sykes was a couple of seconds further back with his teammate Michael van der Mark fighting off Leon Haslam a further couple of seconds behind Sykes.

Toprak Razgatlioglu passed Loris Cresson on his way to victory, claiming his second win of the season and cementing his second place in the championship. Jonathan Rea finished in second place, conceding five points in the title chase to Razgatlioglu, with his Kawasaki teammate Alex Lowes taking third place. The BMWs of Tom Sykes and Michael van der Mark finished off the podium, in fourth and fifth place respectively, while Leon Haslam had to settle for sixth place. Garrett Gerloff recovered in seventh place, in spite of crashing.

Toprak Razgatlioglu then ran out of fuel. 

Alex Lowes gave him a tow and was joined by Lucas Mahias in pushing the race-winning Yamaha around the full four kilometre circuit. To add insult to injury, when it came time for the Japanese anthem to be played on the podium, there was a long silence before a random tune played over the speakers, much to the amusement of the podium. 

Toprak Razgatlioglu cut Jonathan Rea's lead int he championship to just fifteen points, while Alex Lowes joined Scott Redding fifty points further behind, sharing third place ahead of Michael Ruben Rinaldi and Garrett Gerloff. Axel Bassani was the first Ducati across the line in tenth place on a Saturday the Italian factory would rather forget.

2021 Donington World Superbike Superpole Result: Could Be Worse, Could Be Raining

World Superbike Superpole was wet and cold, but the rain held off.

Leon Haslam opened the session with a 1'42.206 on his first flying lap, slower than Jonathan Rea's fastest time this morning. Rea replied on his second lap with a 1'41.550, with Alex Lowes half a second behind him as Haslam pitted in. 

Rea then set a 1'41.252, approaching his morning's time as Lowes and Tom Sykes swapped second and third places, again half a second off Rea's time. Rea then set a 1'40.451, quickest by over a second, and then a 1'40.101 as fourth-quickest Leon Haslam crashed out and lost fourth place to Garrett Gerloff. 

Jonathan Rea pitted in with three minutes left as other riders pitted out with fresh tyres. Toprak Razgatlioglu and Scott Redding languished in damp fifteenth and sixteenth places as the clock counted down. Michael van der Mark joined Gerloff and the five British riders in the top seven and the flag came out. 

Scott Redding pulled a fast lap out of the bag and slipped into sixth place, two places ahead of his teammate Michael Ruben Rinaldi. 

Jonathan Rea held on to pole position by over half a second from Michael van der Mark and Tom Sykes. Alex Lowes, over a second off pole headed the second row, ahead of Garrett Gerloff and Scott Redding. In spite of a crash, and ending over two seconds off pole position, Leon Haslam took seventh place ahead of Michael Ruben Rinaldi and Chaz Davies. Two BMWs ended the session on the front row, with Garrett Gerloff's Yamaha eight places ahead of Toprak Razgatlioglu's.

2021 Assen MotoE Race Result: Started With Drama, Ended With Delight

MotoE joined the show in Assen for the first time and it was a fine closer over an eventful seven laps. Lukas Tulovic started second but took the lead into turn 1 from poleman Eric Granado, cup leader Alessandro Zaccone and reigning champion Jordi Torres. Behind them, Dominique Aegerter held onto fifth place for a bit but didn’t manage to finish lap 1 as he lost the front at turn 16. While the Swiss rider made a costly mistake, rival Zaccone got ahead of both Granado and Tulovic to lead the way by the end of lap 2. Granado held onto the leader together with Torres, but Tulovic was already losing ground, dropping behind Hikari Okubo and Fermín Aldeguer by lap 4.

Back at the front, Granado made his move for the lead into turn 1 with four laps remaining and immediately stretched a half second gap to Zaccone, who dropped within striking distance of Torres. The Spaniard picked up the chase by the end of that lap but Granado’s gap kept steady, the Brazilian entering the final lap four tenths ahead of Torres and ending it eight tenths ahead, taking a second victory of the season. Instead of attacking for the lead, Torres found himself under attack from Zaccone on the final lap, but the Italian could not make a move stick and a massive moment out of turn 11 made him settle for third, with Torres securing second on the podium. Fun was had behind the podium battle as well, where Matteo Ferrari eventually stretched a gap over a feisty group involving Tulovic, Mattia Casadei and Aldeguer, who maintained that order to the chequered flag. Yonny Hernandez finished eighth but was demoted one position behind Okubo for exceeding track limits on the final lap, while Miquel Pons, who started at the back of the grid, climbed up to 10th.

Zaccone’s advantage in the cup standings was reduced to 7 points by Torres, while victor Granado is 17 points behind. Aegerter rejoined after his early tumble but finished the race last, which also leaves him with a 17-point deficit going into the summer break.
