2020 Jerez World Superbike Race Two Result: Sighting Lap Showboating

As the air temperature hit thirty five degrees centigrade, fun-loving Toprak Razgatlioglu did some show-boating on the sighting lap, in spite of a lack of audience. After a quick wheelie, he did a slow rear slide that turned into the simplest lowside crash, spinning in the middle of the track. He picked it up and sheepishly made the grid for the race start. 

Jonathan Rea once again hit turn one first, ahead of Scott Redding and Loris Baz, but as Michael van der Mark got pushed back into the first few turns, Toprak Razgatlioglu charged through from tenth place getting up to fifth place in a handful of corners and ending the first lap in third place, reminding us why the reverse grid was scrapped. 

Into the first turn, Scott Redding passed Jonathan Rea into the first turn as Chaz Davies and Toprak Razgatlioglu sorted themselves out in third and fourth places. Scott Redding set the fastest lap as he started to break away in the lead and on lap three Chaz Davies finally made a pass stick on Toprak Razgatlioglu.

On lap five, over a second behind Redding, Davies was visibly quicker than Rea and pecked at his rear, looking for a pass. At turn nine, an unusual passing place, Davies passed the reigning champion and set off after his teammate. Rea spent lap six swapping places with Toprak Razgatlioglu, and Alex Lowes tried to pass the duelling duo into turn six, overcooking the entry and passing both Razgatlioglu and Rea only to push Razgatlioglu off his like and have Rea pass them both back for third place. Behind the action, Loris Baz slid out of turn thirteen and ended up in last place after picking his bike up. 

Eight laps in, Razgatlioglu once again passed Jonathan Rea, this time into turn six, and Alex Lowes tried to follow him though. A second behind the battle fir third place, Michael van der Mark suddenly had company as Michael Ruben Rinaldi caught him up after fighting through Alvaro Bautista, Garett Gerloff and Leon Haslam. After closing the three second gap to van der Mark, he tried to pass the Yamaha rider at turn five and put himself inside into turn six, but as van der Mark fought back, Rinaldi held on through turns seven and eight, ending the three corner run on the inside and holding sixth place, closing on Alex Lowes over the next few laps.

Once clear of Rea, Razgatlioglu was able to gap the riders behind him but the three second gap to second-placed Chaz Davies was an unreasonable distance to close. Thirteen laps in, Rinaldi started to try to pass Lowes, passing him into turn five, and charging down the long straight to try to pass Jonathan Rea. A lap later, he nearly made the lap six pass work for him but went in too deep. At turn nine, he passed Rea again, but Rea took fourth place back on the exit. At the end of the lap, a frustrated Michael Ruben Rinaldi slid both wheels into turn thirteen and held a tight line to pass Rea and hold fourth place down the straight. 

At three quarter race distance, fifteen laps in, Scott Redding and Chaz Davies, with a consistent gap of just over two seconds between them were riding at the same place over three seconds clear of third-placed Toprak Razgatlioglu. Three seconds further behind, Michael Ruben Rinaldi was a second clear of the Kawasaki teammates fighting over fifth place, and on lap seventeen, Alex Lowes, using an SCX rear tyre, took fifth place off Jonathan Rea at turn six and the race was set.

Scott Redding won his second World Superbike race, set the fastest lap and extended his championship lead over Jonathan Rea. His Ducati teammate Chaz Davies had his best result of the year and lifted himself to fifth place in the championship, ahead of Michael van der Mark. 

Toprak Razgatlioglu closed to within two points of Alex Lowes maintaining his fourth place in the championship, while Jonathan Rea held onto second place, but lost a point to Alex Lowes. Michael Ruben Rinaldi equalled his best ever result with his fourth place.

2020 Jerez World Supersport Race Two Result: Drama On The Warmup

World Supersport opened with a red flag on the warmup lap. Axel Bassani adjusted his visor as he left the grid and, in a moment of inattention, ploughed right into the back of Raffaele De Rosa at a low speed. Bassani crashed and his bike tumbled into the gravel while De Rosa's rear tyre was deflated and the rear of his seat was destroyed. De Rosa limped his MV Agusta around an entire lap with bits falling off his bike and a floppy rear tyre. The race start was delayed and the incident immediately went under investigation. 

After the cement dust was leaf-blowered off turn one, a quick restart was announced, with the restarted race being reduced to eleven laps.

Andrea Locatelli and Jules Cluzel resumed their weekend-long battle at the front, ahead of Philipp Oettl, Corentin Perolari, Manuel Gonzales and Lucas Mahias. Mahias took fifth place from Gonzales as Isaac Viñales held off Steven Odendaal in seventh and eighth places.

Lucas Mahias advanced to fourth place on the second lap but at the front, Andrea Locatelli worked on a one second lead after setting the fastest lap with a 1'43.498. Mahias was second quickest behind Cluzel and Oettl on track. Behind the leader, the three riders in second to fourth places broke clear of Perolari and Viñales.

Lucas Mahias in fourth place, was visibly quicker than his teammate Philipp Oettl in third place, but there were no easy passes offered up and the three-way fight for second place raged on. Further behind, the unlucky Raffaele De Rosa was gaining places, working his way yup to seventh place then sixth with Viñales his next target in fifth. 

On lap seven, Oettl took turn five a little wide and Mahias wasted no time taking third place from him. De Rosa left up to fifth place and then dropped to seventh, with Viñales and Perolari passing him into turn six as they wrote three abreast into the favourite passing place on the track. The fight for fifth was three seconds behind Oettl's fourth place. 

With two laps left, Andrea Locatelli had a clear three second lead over Jules Cluzel and Lucas Mahias as Philipp Oettl dropped off the French pair ahead of him. Raffaele De Rosa was over two and a half seconds behind Oettl, with Isaac Viñales and Corentin Perolari within well under half a second behind him. 

Lucas Mahias was on the tail of a very quick Jules Cluzel, but Cluzel was faultless on the last lap as every passing place was crossed off. Andrea Locatelli won his third race in a row with his third fastest lap, almost two seconds clear of Cluzel and Mahias. Philipp Oettl finished in a lonely fourth place with Raffaele De Rosa holding off Corentin Perolari and Isaac Viñales for fifth place.

As the top three finished in the same order they're contesting the championship, there were no changes at the top of the title race.

2020 Jerez World Superbike Superpole Race Result: Ten Laps For Nine Places

The ten lap Superpole race was contested at lower temperatures than yesterday's full-length race and would decide the grid for this afternoon's race. With almost everyone armed with the Superpole race Pirelli SCX tyre, tyre choice would not be a factor in the race.

Jonathan Rea once again got a better start than Scott Redding, consigning Redding to a fight over second place with Toprak Razgatlioglu with the pair swapping places a couple of times on the opening lap. Michael van der Mark, Loris Baz and Tom Sykes fought for the second row, but Sykes struggled to keep up with the Yamahas and on the third lap was no longer in touch with them.

Jonathan Rea set a fastest lap of 1'39.186 on the second lap and on the fifth lap he had broken free of the fight for second, as Razgatlioglu and Redding crept away from van der Mark and Baz.

Scott Redding was not used to Toprak Razgatlioglu's outside line into corners that wouldn't make it easy for him to pass, with Razgatlioglu closing to the apex regardless of whether or not Redding was inside. At the end of lap six, with Rea almost two seconds clear of the pair, Redding took a fast-out line on turn thirteen and powered past Razgatlioglu into turn one, and the pair swapped places a couple more times until Razgatlioglu's Yamaha just stopped working. Razgatlioglu put his hand up, pulled off the track, parked his bike and conceded second place and a place in the front three rows for race two.

For the last three laps, everyone in the top seven was in a lonely position, with at least a second and a half gap between every place, turning the sprint race into a high-speed procession for the remaining laps, with close racing only in the fight for eighth place, where Garrett Gerloff held off the Hondas of Leon Haslam and Alvaro Bautista.

Jonathan Rea won his second Superpole race of the year and cemented his second place in the championship behind Scott Redding. Michael van der Mark picked up the third place dropped by Toprak Razgatlioglu and Loris Baz finished top independent again. 

The front row for today's full-length race will be Jonathan Rea, Scott Redding and Michael van der Mark. Se second row will be Loris Baz, Chaz Davies and Tom Sykes, ahead of Alex Lowes, Garrett Gerloff and Leon Haslam.

After Michael van der Mark's retirement yesterday and Toprak Razgatlioglu's today, Yamaha will be asking themselves some questions as they lose out to Ducati and Kawasaki's reliability in the heat.

2020 Jerez World Supersport Race One Result: Yes, It's Saturday

The first World Supersport Saturday race would be seventeen laps of Jerez. Isaac Viñales started at the back of the grid due to an incorrect tyre pressure. 

Locatelli led from pole position, with Jules Cluzel, Philipp Oettl< Corentin Perolari and Lucas Mahias following. Cluzel barged past Locatelli into turn six to take the lead on the first lap with Hikari Okubo taking fifth place from Mahias behind them. 

Cluzel, Locatelli and Oettl started to break away from Perolari and the constantly changing fight between Mahias and Okubo. Jules Cluzel set a fastest lap of 1'44.371 as the leading trio gained two seconds from fourth-placed Perolari who was holding Mahias and Okubo back. Cluzel beat the fastest lap again, with a 1'44.288 on lap three as the gap to fourth place rose to almost four seconds. Mahias passed Perolari on lap three and was staring down a gap of four seconds to a podium place. 

On lap four, Andrea Locatelli took the lead from Jules Cluzel into turn six and immediately started to break away from Cluzel who struggled to keep up as Locatelli set a 1'44.006 fastest lap. The leading two were over a second clear of third-placed Philipp Oettl. 

Locatelli set a 1'43.893 and had over a second of a gap over second place and three seconds off third place. Lucas Mahias, quicker than Oettl, had over three seconds to close to fight for the podium.

The fight for fifth position between Axel Bassani, Corentin Perolari, Raffaele De Rosa, Hikari Okubo and Steven Odendaal was where the action was as the leading four riders spread out into safe positions. Ten laps in, De Rosa broke free of that fight and started closing up the two second gap to fourth-placed Lucas Mahias. Hikari Okubo, after dropping a few places, pitted in and ended his race.

With four laps left, De Rosa closed to within a second of Mahias, with the fight for fourth place the only uncertainty as the race ticked over the last few laps, especially with De Rosa's late race pace on the MV Agusta, a bike that suffers less than other bikes as the race goes on.

On the last lap, at turn six, Raffaele De Rosa stuck his bike under Mahias's as the pair swapped pair, Mahias wiping his elbow all over De Rosa's side, but De Rosa held the inside line. A few corners later, however, Lucas Mahias found some pace through the fast right handers of turns seven and eight, and somehow pulled off a pass, carrying speed from the exit of turn six, on De Rosa and he held fourth place to the flag.

Andrea Locatelli won his second race from his second pole position and set his second fastest lap in the process. Jules Cluzel's second second place keeps him in second place in the championship, ahead of his fellow Frenchmen Lucas Mahias and Corentin Perolari.

2020 Jerez World Superbike Race One Result: It's On

Twenty hot laps of Jerez with the first World Superbike race in five months. At least four riders are capable of taking the title in the shortened calendar.

Jonathan Rea led from getting a good start from second place on the grid, with Toprak Razgatlioglu, Scott Redding, Tom Sykes and Loris Baz behind him. Baz dispatched Sykes on the first lap, and rounded out the leading pack. 

The front four riders started to break away from fifth-placed Tom Sykes with Rea setting the fastest lap with a 1'40.801 on lap two. Loris Baz struggled to keep up with the leading trio, but he was able to make up lost ground every time it looked like he lost touch with them. 

On lap four, Tom Sykes pulled out of the race with a mechanical issue, giving the lead group a gap of over two seconds from Chaz Davies who had escaped from the fight behind him, leaving Michael van der Mark, Alvaro Bautista, Michael Ruben Rinaldi, Leon Haslam and Alex Lowes to fight over sixth place. 

At the halfway point, Michael van der Mark pulled out of the race, with his Yamaha's engine smoking and bringing out oil warning flags, but nobody was affected by any potential oil. 

At the start of lap twelve, Scott Redding had had enough of the heat of two bikes in front of him and he powered past Toprak Razgatlioglu and passed him into turn one, taking second place in the leading group of four. Chaz Davies was almost three seconds off the leading group, but he started to close the gap at a pace of three tenths of a second a lap. 

Razgatlioglu kept looking for a way past Redding, as their lines into and out of corners were visibly different, but Redding was able to hold off the challenger behind him. 

On lap fifteen, Scott Redding made a bold pass into turn six, pushing Jonathan Rea to the edge of the corner in a block pass that compressed the leading four and let Chaz Davies, with his quick late pace, close up on Loris Baz to make the leading group a five-bike train. Redding went a little wide at turn six, but Rea couldn't capitalise on it, his front tyre starting to go off a little. 

On lap seventeen, Chaz Davies tried to pass Loris Baz, but Baz just parked his Yamaha across Davies's front, forcing Davies to let Baz escape. A lap later, Davies tried the pass from further back and managed to make his turn one pass work. The leading five bikes were around two seconds clear of Michael Ruben Rinaldi in a safe sixth place with Alvaro Bautista in a lonely seventh a couple of seconds further back.

As Chaz Davies fruitlessly tried to pass Toprak Razgatlioglu, trying turn one and six then going wide a few turns later, Scott Redding had built up a lead of almost a second and kept the pace throughout the last lap. Jonathan Rea couldn't close up the gap but was safe in second place.

Scott Redding won his first World Superbike race and took command of the championship, six points ahead of Alex Lowes and twelve points clear of Jonathan Rea whose second place pushed him past Toprak Razgatlioglu in the championship. Razgatlioglu's third place cements him as a prospect this year while Chaz Davies demonstrates that his late race form is still better than his qualifying would make you believe.

With two more races in this heat, everyone heads to tomorrow with more data and scores to settle.

2020 Jerez World Supersport Superpole Result: Now Counts For Two Races

Without the World Champion competing, Randy Krummenacher having quit his team for reasons that have now come to light, World Supersport returned to qualifying after a five month break. Without a specific qualifying tyre, best times could be set early or late in the session. Qualifying, for the first time in World Supersport history, now counts for grids on two races with an added Saturday pandemic race every weekend this year.

Andrea Locatelli briefly held the quickest lap only for Phillip Oettl to take it with a 1'43.376. Jules Cluzel, Lucas Mahias and Isaac Viñales got themselves provisionally onto the front two rows early on.

Ten Minutes in, Oettl improved on the best lap and was joined by Viñales behind him. Andrea Locatelli was the first into the 1'42s with a 1'42.691 followed by a 1'42.640, over half a second quicker than anyone else, but still short of Randy Krummenacher's 1'41.775 from last year. 

Jules Cluzel put himself on the front row with three minutes left, in a group of quick riders crossing the line in a clump. Andrea Locatelli took a few more tenths of a lead with a 1'42.214, over half a second ahead of Cluzel and over a second quicker than fourth placed Lucas Mahias. 

As riders in with a chance to upset the front row hit traffic, places were set at the flag. Andrea Locatelli took pole position for his second qualifying in a row, ahead of Jules Cluzel and Phillip Oettl. Lucas Mahias, Isaac Viñales and Corentin Perolari rounded out the second row.

2020 Jerez World Superbike Superpole Result: "Yee Haa!" On A One Lap Tyre

World Superbike qualifying took place in a twenty-five minute session at 11am, before the weather really heats up, but was still hot enough to limit the longevity of the Pirelli Superpole tyre.

Toprak Razgatlioglu set a 1'39.208 as the target time while Alex Lowes had a slow crash and eased his bike back to the pits. Jonathan Rea, Michael van der Mark and Loris Baz were the other three into the 1'39s before everyone pitted in for the qualifying tyre. Alex Lowes and Marco Melandri had not set a qualifying time at this point. 

Tati Mercado was the first rider back out, only to crash out at lap four before he could improve on his seventeenth place. Alex Lowes also slipped out while everyone was on their tea break, making for lost laps earlier in the session. Chaz Davies was out early and put himself into sixth place, and with seven minutes left, riders on qualifying tyres started to fill the track.

Macro Melandri, fresh from a retirement that lasted one race weekend, eventually set a qualifying time that put him in the top fifteen. Five minutes from the end, the sticky tyres started to show up near the top of the sheet, with riders starting to record 1'39 laps. 

Loris Baz put a 1'39.214 in to just miss taking pole position, only to be knocked down to third place from Tom Sykes with a remarkable 1'38.776, a time that looked unbeatable right up to the point Scott Redding set a blistering last sector to steal pole with a 1'38.736. Jonathan Rea very nearly caused another upset, splitting the leading two. Jonathan Rea got another two sectors of pole position pace from his rear tyre, but the heat eventually got to the tyre and he had to settle for second place.

The flag came out with Scott Redding on his debut World Superbike pole position ahead of Jonathan Rea and Tom Sykes. Michael van der Mark, Toprak Razgatlioglu and Loris Baz made up an all-Yamaha second row ahead of Chaz Davies, Alvaro Bautista and Leon Haslam.
