2021 Aragon World Supersport Race 1 Result: Thrills And Spills

World Supersport looks like it's going to be a Yamaha R6 series for one last year, but not if Nikki Tuuli and Philipp Oettl can keep the likes of Jules Cluzel, Steven Odendaal, Dominique Aegerter, Randy Krummenacher, Federico Caricasulo and many, many more in check.

Jules Cluzel took the lead from pole position as Nikki Tuuli dropped back through the pack at the start. Philipp Oettl, Dominique Aegerter and Steven Odendaal passed Tuuli at the start and held their places for the first lap.

The leading five riders remained together at the front as Federico Caricasulo, returning to the class, and Marc Alcoba duelled behind, Alcoba crashing out behind a bit of a contretemps between Odendaal and Tuuli. 

On lap three, the three front riders, Jules Cluzel, Philipp Oettl and Dominique Aegerter had a gap of over a second over Odendaal and Tuuli, but a lap later, they were all back together. 

Tuuli, setting the fastest lap on lap three, took fourth place from Odendaal and caught up Aegerter. Jules Cluzel tried to break away at the front, but Philipp Oettl on the only Kawasaki in the top ten kept up with him for a few laps.

Nikki Tuuli made good on his pace and cleanly powered past Aegerter down the long straight, taking third place and setting another fastest lap. Tuuli then passed Philipp Oettl and slotted in a second behind leader Jules Cluzel.

Jules Cluzel's lead was slowly shrinking, Nikki Tuuli half a second quicker per lap, and the leading two were a second clear of the rest of the grid. On lap eight, Tuuli caught Cluzel. Cluzel was quicker through the slower complex, but Tuuli had a faster lap-on-lap pace.

Tuuli's quicker pace didn't help at this stage, with his half second advantage not mattering as long as Cluzel could hold his line and retain the lead. 

And then it was all over. 

Into turn twelve, Nikki Tuuli miscalculated his entry and he clipped Jules Cluzel's rear wheel and the pair tumbled into the gravel, their races over. They sat down together and had a bit of a chat as the race lead was taken by Philipp Oettl and Dominique Aegerter as Steven Odendaal looked on. 

Philipp Oettl's Kawasaki looked better in corner entry and exit which held off the faster Yamaha onslaught behind him. Four laps from the end, the podium places looked sorted out, with the order to be determined over the last four laps. Aegerter briefly held the lead, but Oettl snapped back immediately to regain the top spot. Aegerter took the lead at the end of the straight and Steven Odendaal took second into turn one. Yamahas held the top two spots with three laps to go. 

Dominique Aegerter and Steven Odendaal swapped the lead a couple of times as they broke free of Philipp Oettl's Kawasaki as Luca Bernardi overhauled Federico Caricasulo over three seconds further back. 

On the last lap, Aegerter took the lead into turn four and held a defensive line through the next few corners and the pair headed down the long back straight to determine the victory. In Aegerter's slipstream, Steven Odendaal forced his way into the lead, hpolding it into the last turn and to the line.

Steven Odendaal took his first podium at the top, winning his first race ahead of Dominique Aegerter's first podium. Philipp Oettl took third place two and a half seconds further back as Luca Bernardi and Manuel Gonzales held off Federico Caricasulo.

The incident between Nikki Tuuli and Jules Cluzel is under investigation, with the blame looking like it'll fall on Tuuli who was taken to the medical centre to be checked up.

2021 Aragon World Superbike Race 1 Result: And We're Back

World Superbike is back and it gave us an exciting opening race. The season normally starts in Australia before taking a long break, giving us a strange pre-season race, but with the pandemic curbing the usual scheme of things, the opening round at Aragon had a lot to live up to, and it delivered.

Jonathan Rea took the lead from pole position and was joined by his Kawasaki teammate Alex Lowes, the pair of them armed with the harder SC0 tyres. Scott Redding, also on the harder tyre, was third place behind them, fending off Tom Sykes, Garrett Gerloff, Chaz Davies and Toprak Razgatlioglu. 

On the second lap, the Kawasakis held a one second gap over Scott Redding and Garrett Gerloff, with Tom Sykes dropping back a few places. Jonathan Rea set the fastest lap on lap two as Lowes and Rea increased their lead over Redding.

On lap three, Garrett Gerloff's hold on fourth place behind Scott Redding came to an end as Chaz Davies passed him on the outside and Toprak Razgatlioglu took advantage of his modified line to follow Davies through on the inside of Gerloff's Yamaha. A lap later, Razgatlioglu passed Davies into turn one to take fourth place, and a lap later, he took third place off Scott Redding into turn one, staring at a two and a half second to Lowes and leader Rea. 

Into turn two, Chaz Davies took a tight line, aided by his SCX softer tyre, and cleanly swept under Redding's bike, Redding having to lift his knee and redraw his line to avoid the not-red Ducati. As RAzgatlioglu built a bit of a gap from Davies, Alvaro Bautista caught up with Scott Redding and Garrett Gerloff, eventually passing Gerloff down the long back straight to take sixth place behind Redding.

Just past the halfway mark, Alex Lowes lost a lot of pace, his tyre seeming to have had enough, and after a few laps, he was caught and passed by Toprak Razgatlioglu. As soon as he was passed, with Chaz Davies catching up, his pace recovered and he was keeping Razgatlioglu in check, his SC0 tyre sandwiched between two SCX-shod riders. 

On lap twelve of eighteen, Jonathan Rea had a lead of over three seconds to the three-way battle for second, as Lowes and Razgatlioglu kept fighting, initially allowing Chaz Davies to close up and eventually becoming a six-way fight with Redding, Bautista and Gerloff joining them until Gerloff left them to it, losing touch after a mistake. 

On the penultimate lap, a few laps into Lowes and Razgatlioglu swapping places, Alex Lowes took and held second place from Toprak Razgatlioglu while Scott Redding made the best of a great exit onto the start/finish straight to take fourth place from Chaz Davies. As the last lap ticked off corner by corner, it looked like Toprak Razgatlioglu would take second place, over four seconds from Jonathan Rea's inevitable victory, but instead Alex Lowes took an un usual line, having studied Razgatlioglu's advantages and disadvantages, and exited the last corner onto the straight with a better line for grip and powered past Toprak Razgatlioglu's Yamaha to take second place. 

Jonathan Rea took his hundredth World Superbike victory ahead of his Kawasaki teammate Alex Lowes, with Toprak Razgatlioglu rounding out the podium four hundredths of a second behind Lowes. Scott Redding beat Chaz Davies for fourth place with Tom Sykes picking up a sixth, Alvaro Bautista having crashed out at the start of the last lap.

2021 Aragon World Superbike Superpole Result: Quick Enough For You?

World Superbike Superpole is shorter than last year, with fifteen minutes to set a fast lap, and would open with the fastest times of the weekend.

Jonathan Rea was the first rider to set a target time of 1'49.314, the fastest of the weekend, but Alex Lowes immediately took the top spot from him with a 1'48.890. After setting two lap times, most riders popped in for a cuppa and a new tyre, only now fitting the qualifying tyre to set their best times. Garrett Gerloff was third quickest, ahead of Chaz Davies and Alvaro Bautista, before the faster tyres left their mark.

Chaz Davies headed out early on his "it's not red" Ducati ahead of everyone but Jonas Folger. Davies ticked off the first sector on pace for the quickest lap of the session, but Scott Redding on the official Ducati was quicker still, and Redding didn't show any signs of slowing down. Davies ut himself into second place, but Scott Redding nicked it with a 1'48.733. Tom Sykes couldn't beat it, slipping into what was now second place, but six time world champion Jonathan Rea knocked everyone down a spot with a 1'48.458 that was over a quarter of a second quicker than Redding and three tenths quicker than his outright qualifying record from last year.

Jonathan Rea opens his championship defence with a pole position on his not-upgraded-enough-for-new-rev-limits Kawasaki, ahead of his chief challenger Ducati's Scott Redding. Saturday's Tom Sykes gets BMW the press he's there for in third place, rounding out the front row of the grid.

Alex Lowes heads the second row ahead of Chaz Davies and Garrett Gerloff, with the Honda pair of Leon Haslam and Alvaro Bautista holding off Michael Ruben Rinaldi for row three. Toprak Razgatlioglu was knocked down to tenth place for exceeding track limits at turn fifteen, giving Gerloff the quickest Yamaha honours.

2021 Aragon World Supersport Superpole Result: Time For A New Record

World Supersport Superpole qualifying opened under excellent weather, giving the rider the best chance to set their best laps. With no qualifying tyres available, times set in the first half of the session may be the qualifying times.

Dominique Aegerter opened up the fast times, setting the fastest lap on his first two laps, ahead of Nikki Tuuli and Jules Cluzel. Philipp Oettl beat Aegerter's time, putting a Kawasaki on top ahead of a Yamaha and MV Agusta, before the mid-session break.

Coming out of the break, Randy Krummenacher exceeded the grip of his cold tyres, pushing the front too hard into the first right-hander, crashing out in twelfth place.

Nikki Tuuli started his first lap a quarter of a second under the best lap and started the long straight with half a second under his belt, but lost two tenths in the last sector, setting a lap of 1'53.225 to go quickest. Jules Cluzel on a good lap, had a strong third sector and slipped under Tuuli's time before hitting the long straight, and gaining three tenths of a second to set an outright lap record with a 1'52.937, knocking Tuuli and Oettl down a place. 

Cluzel, Tuuli and Oettl make up the front row on three different bikes, ahead of Steven Odendaal, Dominique Aegerter and a returning Federico Caricasulo on the all-Yamaha second row. The third and fourth rows were also filled with nothing but Yamahas.

2021 Aragon World Superbike FP2 Result: Davies Takes Control

Chaz Davies was quickest, ahead of Jonathan Rea and Scott Redding, with the Honda duo of Alvaro Bautista and Leon Haslam within six tenths of the session's best time.

2021 Aragon World Supersport FP1 Result: Tuuli Quickest On Lone MV Agusta

Nikki Tuuli, the lone MV Agusta on the grid, set the quickest time ahead of the Yahama of Steven Odendaal and the Kawasaki of Philipp Oettl. Jules Cluzel was fourth quickest, ahead of five other Yamahas. With the MV Agusta the only triple-cylinder machine on the grid, until the proposed changes next year bring Triumph triples and Ducati twins to the battle, this might be its last year to leave its mark on the championship.

2021 Le Mans MotoE Race Result: Action All Around

After the chaos of MotoGP, the MotoE class got to enjoy almost fully dry conditions, but that did not stop riders crashing as early as the sighting lap, which took Miquel Pons and Andrea Mantovani out of contention. Amongst the people who actually got to start the race, Eric Granado made a good start from pole but soon had Dominique Aegerter and Alessandro Zaccone breathing down his neck and demoting him all the way to sixth spot by the end of the first lap.

Aegerter started lap 2 at the front but there were attacks all around him and the lead changed hands several times, given there were barely any gaps in the leading group. Hikari Okubo briefly held top spot but soon abandoned the fight in a tangle with fellow rookie Fermín Aldeguer on lap 3. Lap 4 saw Zaccone take the turn at the front from Aegerter and Lukas Tulovic, with Jordi Torres and Granado in the top five, while Casadei admirably joined a leading group of 8 despite a poor starting position in 16th.

Zaccone was the first rider to hold onto the lead for one full lap, although not through a lack of trying from Aegerter, while Granado had climbed into fourth and was claiming third from Tulovic at Garage Vert with 2 laps remaining. The Brazilian’s next victim was rival Aegerter at the final corner and the poleman started the final lap chasing down Zaccone for the win.

Zaccone made it all the way to the final lap in charge of proceedings and Granado could not make a move stick at turn 6 but he got one last opportunity at turn 13 and despite Zaccone responding at the final corner, Granado got the better exit to claim victory. Zaccone fought to the end but crossed the finish line second, although a track limits infringement dropped him one position to third. Casadei got promoted to second, having finished third after a late tangle between Aegerter and Tulovic on the final lap, which dropped the Swiss rider to fourth, ahead of Torres and Yonny Hernandez.

Zaccone keeps the lead in the cup standings, 8 points ahead of Casadei and Aegerter, while Granado climbs into fourth, 13 points down on the leader, one less than Torres.
