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.

2018 Donington World Supersport FP1 Result: Mahias, Cluzel And West? It Must Be Raining

As the British weather continued to be British, Lucas Mahias continued to be an endurance rider at heart, setting a time at the end of the session that was almost a second quicker than Jules Cluzel's quickest time. Ant West shored up his reputation as an uncannily quick man in the rain, ending the session third quickest, just over a second off Mahias's time, and one of only three men under 1'46. 

Just like the World Superbike session, six riders missed the 107% qualifying mark.

2018 Donington World Superbike FP1 Result: Rea Tops Very Wet Session

Jonathan Rea swept in late to take the top spot in a very wet session dominated, until that point, by his teammate Tom Sykes. Six riders were outside the 107% required for qualification, with three of them not even setting a laptime. Loris Baz, a perennial front-runner in the wet, was third quickest and Leon Camier, returning from injury, was just over two seconds off Rea's quickest time in fourth place. 

With the unpredictable British weather promising to live up to its reputation, it is unlikely any lap records will be broken this weekend.

2018 Imola World Superbike FP3 Results: Davies Pips Rea And Melandri

Marco Melandri was third quickest ahead of Lorenzo Savadori while Eugene Laverty and Alex Lowes missed out on Superpole two and will head into the first Superpole sessions as favourites to advance.
