2020 Phillip Island World Superbike Race One Result: Tyre Wear Matters

The opening race of 2020 took place on a try track that is notoriously punishing on tyres as riders are only upright down the straight, spending the remainder of the lap on the sides of their tyres. With the weather behaving, and no horrible geese invading the track, twenty two laps of close racing ensued.

Five time world champion Jonathan Rea hit turn one in first place, passing both Scott Redding and Tom Sykes. Toprak Razgatlioglu briefly held second place, but Tom Sykes took it from him. Michael van der Mark, Scott Redding, Leon Hallam and Loris Baz rounded out the top seven. Turn seven, Sykes carried a lot of corner speed and tried to get underneath Rea, but his front tyre hit the inside of Rea's Kawasaki and pushed him off his line. Rea tried to recover, but went off the track, wobbling through the gravel. Rea rejoined the race in last place.

Tom Sykes led lap two, ahead of Scott Redding, Michael van der Mark, Toprak Razgatlioglu, Loris Baz, Leon Haslam, Alex Lowes and Garrett Gerloff. Jonathan Rea, with empty track in front of him, set the fastest lap with a 1'30.501. The eight rider peloton trained together until lap five when Gerloff couldn't keep up with the seven riders in front of him. Loris Baz also dropped out of the leading group by overshooting turn one, losing several places when he returned to the race. 

At the start of lap six, Scott Redding tried to make a move into turn one, but Tom Sykes kept his lead, outbraving the Ducati. Jonathan Rea had caught the slower riders and was carving his way through them, barging Federico Caricasulo out of the way so hard out of turn four that he had to apologise. Rea was trying to get past Eugene Laverty outside turn eight, but he hit a rippled part of the track and his front wheel started skipping over the track, causing his bike to slide out and end Rea's race. 

The leading six riders split into two groups as Alex Lowes and Leon Haslam dropped off the back of the leading four as they fought their own fight, but on lap nine, they caught back up. At half race distance, as lap twelve started, Scott Redding made his move, passing Tom Sykes down the straight. Michael van der Mark followed Redding through and passed Sykes into turn one. Toprak Razgatlioglu made his move on Sykes into turn four, the favourite aggressive pass corner, and Sykes went from first to fourth in four corners. A lap later Alex Lowes made the same move as Razgatlioglu, passing Sykes. Leon Haslam followed Lowes through and Sykes ended up in sixth position. The leading trio held a brief gap from Lowes, but Lowes and Haslam caught up the next lap, dropping Sykes off the leading group as his tyres were not up for the pace at the front. 

On lap fifteen, there was a change at the front. Third-placed Toprak Razgatlioglu tried to pass his teammate into turn one, but he couldn't make it work. On turn four, however, he passed both Michael van der Mark and Scott Redding in one move, and van der Mark took the opportunity to keep Redding off his line and slotted into second place. Leon Haslam, a few bikes back, passed Alex Lowes at turn four, holding fourth place until a few laps later when Lowes took it back. 

The leading five bikes were still very close, with the Yamahas leading the Ducati at the front as the Kawasaki and Honda contested fourth place. On lap nineteen of twenty two, Alex Lowes started showing Scott Redding his wheel and made his move to pass him at turn four. After Michael van der Mark took the lead from Toprak Razgatlioglu, Lowes applied the same pressure to Razgatlioglu. At the beginning of lap twenty one, Lowes passed both van der Mark and Razgatlioglu into turn one, but by turn two, Razgatlioglu took the lead from him. Leon Haslam's tyres could no longer keep up and he dropped back, leaving the front four to contest the podium. 

The last lap started with Toprak Razgatlioglu leading Michael van der Mark, Alex Lowes and Scott Redding, with Lowes and Redding swapping back and forth down the straight and in turn one. Redding finally took third place at turn four, but Lowes took it back on the exit. Lowes then passed van der Mark directly before the final turn and the four bikes came howling rouhgd the last corner and onto the straight as one tight group. 

Toprak Razgatlioglu won the race, seven thousandths of a second ahead of Alex Lowes and just forty one thousandths from Alex Lowes. Michael van der Mark missed out on the podium just over an eighth of a second off the winner. All three podium finishers were new to their bikes for 2020 and were on three different bikes. 

Loris Baz was the leading independent rider in seventh place, behind Alvaro Bautista.

2020 Phillip Island World Supersport Superpole Result: Slicks Quick

This year, World Supersport gets slick tyres, and no longer need to use road-legal tyres. Twenty five minutes would determine the grid for tomorrow's race.

Very early on, Andrea Locatelli set a 1'32.440, using the slick tyres to finally beat Sam Lowes's 2013 lap record. The MV Agustas of Randy Krummenacher and Raffaele de Rosa were the only other bikes within a second in the early stages. 

After a short tea break, reigning champion Randy Krummenacher, sporting the number one plate, closed the gap to Andrea Locatelli to a quarter of a second only to have Locatelli increase his lead by another tenth of a second. 

On his third outing, Randy Krummenacher strung a lap together, a quarter of a second quicker in the first sector, to take the top spot from Andrea Locatelli by seventeen thousandths of a second. French contenders Lucas Mahias and Jules Cluzel knocked Raffaele de Rosa down to fifth, taking third and fourth place respectively.

Andrea Locatelli was on a fast lap as the flag came out and everyone else had pretty much settled. He hit the chequered flag to take pole position in his debut ride, knocking Krummenacher to second place on the grid with Lucash mahias rounding out the front row. The second row matched the first, with a Yamaha, MV Agusta and Kawasaki in the same order, made of Jules Cluzel, Raffaele de Rosa and Philipp Oettl.

2020 Phillip Island World Superbike Superpole Result: Exploding Fairing Doesn't Distract

Twenty five minutes of qualifying would determine the grid for the first race this afternoon. Scott Redding was quickest in all three sessions, wet or dry, and is favourite to take pole on his debut Superpole. Leon Camier didn't take part and would sit the remainder of the weekend out.

Jonathan Rea waited in his garage as everyone else headed out on their regular tyres. Loris Baz was the first to set a lap time, but Alex Lowes was quickest after the first lap, with a 1'30.212 and a top speed of 322kmh. Jonathan Rea nipped out as other riders started returning to the pits, and set a 1'30.025 to take the top spot with eighteen minutes remaining. Rea headed Alex Lowes, Scott Redding and Michael van der Mark into the tea break, with the top fifteen riders within a second of Rea's quick lap. 

After Xavi Fores's fairing exploded down the start/finish straight, dumping fancy carbon fairing on a fast bit of the track, the red flags came out with fourteen minutes left. No geese were involved.

After the track was cleared, Alvaro Bautista crashed out at turn nine on his Honda, running wide into the turn and watching his bike tumble in the gravel. With only nine minutes left, his session was over. Two minutes later, riders started heading out on their yellow-stickered qualifying tyres, with Scott Redding and Tom Sykes out first. 

Tom Sykes set a 1'29.230 while Scott Redding lost time catching a bunch of Kawasakis on his fast lap. Leon Haslam was second quickest only to be knocked to third by Jonathan Rea and fourth my Scott Redding, getting second quickest on the second lap from his fast tyre. 

Tom Sykes took pole position with a new outright lap record, ahead of Scott Redding and Jonathan Rea with a second row made up of Toprak Razgatlioglu, Leon Haslam and Michael van der Mark. All five manufacturers had top five positions. Tom Sykes cemented his reputation as the top qualifying rider setting a record of an unprecedented fifty pole positions.

2020 Phillip Island World Superbike FP3 Result: Redding Makes It Three For Three

Scott Redding was quickest for the third time this weekend, ahead of Michael van der Mark and Jonathan Rea. Redding heads to Superpole as the favourite and all nine riders at the top set their fastest times in the last session, with only Leon Haslam in the top twelve needing to rely on a time from the previous day. Leon Camier was ruled unfit after FP2 when it was clear his shoulder injury from Aragon was too much for him to compete with.

Qatar Moto2 Test Friday Times: Navarro Leads A Close Field

Like their junior counterparts, the Moto2 class also spent their first day at the Qatar test riding solely during the daytime, due to the change of schedule for MotoGP. At the end of the first day, it was Jorge Navarro was fastest, the Speed Up rider taking a comfortable lead of nearly a quarter of a second.

Behind Navarro, things were much tighter. Just over three tenths of a second separated Xavi Vierge in second from Nicolo Bulega in tenth, all of them riding Kalexe. Enea Bastianini was third fastest, a fraction behind Vierge, and just ahead of America Joe Roberts, the American Racing rider making an impressive showing on the first day.

Qatar Moto3 Test Friday Times: Rodrigo Comfortably Fastest, Fenati Absent

The Moto3 class got their first taste of full-time daytime riding at Qatar on Friday, as the final test of the preseason got underway. Both the Moto3 and Moto2 classes will be racing during the daytime at Qatar, after the schedule has been changed to put the MotoGP race earlier.

Gabriel Rodrigo ended the day as fastest, the Gresini Moto3 rider putting in a time over a third of a second quicker than the rest of the field. Albert Arenas set the second fastest time on the Aspar KTM, while Honda Team Asia's Ai Ogura was third fastest over half a second behind Rodrigo. John McPhee put the Petronas Sprinta Honda into fourth.

Notable absentee was Romano Fenati, who was back in Italy after developing a fever. Because of the fear of corona virus, the Italian underwent tests for the COVID-19 virus, which thankfully turned out negative.

2020 Phillip Island World Supersport FP2 Result: Krummenacher Makes The Slicks Work

In a session split by two red flags, one of which was resolved by a man on a scooter chasing birds off the track, the dry weather gave riders a chance to try out the new for 2020 slick tyres, which let Randy Krummenacher set a lap that was quicker than the previous race lap record and within four tenths of a second of Sam Lowes's 2013 outright lap record. Krummenacher's switch to MV Agusta shows potential, with his teammate Raffaele de Rosa third quickest. Former Moto2 rider Andrea Locatelli was second quickest, swapping the top spot with Krummenacher throughout the session.

2020 Phillip Island World Superbike FP2 Result: Redding Ends Day One On Top

Red flags were brought out for debris on track, causing a five minute break in the middle of the session, but at least the rain stayed away and gave us full-speed qualifying. Series rookie Scott Redding ended the day on top of both sessions, getting to within four tenths of a second of the race lap record towards the end of the second session. Toprak Razgatlioglu and Michael van der Mark were within half a second of Redding's best time with Leon Haslam exactly half a second off. Loris Baz, between bouts of enthusiastic tweeting, built on his morning's wet weather performance and was the quickest independent and fifth quickest overall. Jonathan Rea and Tom Sykes rounded out the top seven, making it five manufacturers in the top seven.

The Hondas and Ducatis battled over the top speeds, with Alvaro Bautista and Chaz Davies the two fastest riders in a straight line, even if they both couldn't match their teammates in terms of laptimes. The new inline-four Honda Fireblades are a welcome replacement to the boat anchors that were last year's bikes.
