2018 Donington World Superbike FP2 Result: Sykes Leads Rea

As the rain stopped falling on the still-damp track, everyone improved on their morning's times, with Tom Sykes, the rider with the most victories around this circuit, coming out on top, over half a second quicker than his Kawasaki teammate Jonathan Rea. Rea said yesterday that there must be something in the tea bags round here that gives Sykes extra pace, as shown by his nine victories in his last five visits here.

Alex Lowes and Leon Camier, declared fit for today after the first session, were third and fourth quickest in front of their home crowds ahead of fast-when-wet Loris Baz. Gino Rea was the quickest wildcard, tenth placed after a lap that put him in sixth was cancelled for exceeding track conditions.
