2014 Donington World Supersport Race Results

World Supersport was dry, with 16-degree air temperature and 27-degree track temperature.

Kenan Sofuoglu took the lead ahead of a pack of five riders who constantly jostled for position for ten laps behind him, right up to the point Sofuoglu's engine started spewing smoke, adding to his misfortune, and making it look like his race had ended. However, as Kev Coghlan, Lorenzo Zanetti, Jules Cluzel, Michael Van Der Mark and PJ Jacobsen passed the stricken Kawasaki, it came back to life and Sofuoglu was able to resume his race.

2014 Donington World Supersport Qualifying Results: The Rain Continues

Wet weather continued to plague the Donington round, causing qualifying to be attrition-based.

Michael Van Der Mark took pole position off Kenan Sofuoglu with ten seconds left and set about trying to get even quicker but was hampered by traffic from what would have put a one second gap between pole position and second place. Kev Coghlan and PJ Jacobsen continued their good weekends with third and fourth places. Nine riders crashed in the appalling conditions.

2014 Donington World Superbike FP3 Results: Rea Rapidly Wrangles Rain

In a wet morning's untimed session, Jonathan Rea on the Honda was a second and a quarter quicker than Ayrton Badovini's Evo Bimota and Alex Lowes on a Suzuki. A surprising bunch, but as this is the first properly wet session for the Superbikes, it's as unpredictable as expected. The wet track time will be useful for this afternoon's Superpole session as heavy rain looks unavoidable.
