2018 Brno World Superbike Race Two Results: High Temperature Low Grip

old_url: 

World Superbike race two took place on a hot track, with the track temperature five degrees celsius higher than yesterday, around 43ºC, causing a noticeable drop in grip and lap times. 

Alex Lowes got off the line quickest but he lost the lead to Michael van der Mark after a turn. The Yamaha pair led Eugene Laverty, Marco Melandri, Chaz Davies, Tom Sykes and Jonathan Rea. Lap two saw a change in the lead as Lowes took the top spot from van der Mark into turn one and convincingly held it, setting the fastest lap in the process. 

Melandri and Laverty fought for third until Laverty missed the apex on turn ten and Melandri made his move. On lap three, Melandri tried to take second from van der Mark into the first turn, but the Dutchman him off until turn three where Melandri found a way through and he set the fastest lap chasing down the leader Alex Lowes.

Jonathan Rea, trying to take sixth place off Tom Sykes into turn twelve, passed his Kawasaki teammate, but on the exit of the corner, Sykes drove out of the corner and clipped Rea, sending him to the gravel and ending his weekend. Race Direction investigated the crash and found that it wasn't anyone's fault, but Rea thought differently, waiting behind the barriers until Sykes came back round before giving him sarcastic applause.

Lap four, and the leading five riders were a single group, Lowes, Melandri, van der Mark, Davies and Laverty, clear of Sykes and Savadori's battle for sixth. A lap later they spread out and the leading two of Lowes and Melandri cleared a bit of space from van der Mark who was over a second from Davies and Laverty who were joined by Sykes and Lorenzo Savadori. 

Marco Melandri, the quickest man on track, made his turn one move stick again, taking the lead from Alex Lowes, only to have a glitch at turn three, possibly losing engine braking or hitting a false neutral, and he headed across the gravel at an air fence, but he managed to get his feet down, schoolboy no-brakes style, to avoid planting his Panigale in the furniture. He rejoined in nineteenth place. He wouldn't be lonely there as a lap later, he was joined by another championship hopeful as Tom Sykes dropped his Kawasaki by just losing rear grip and going down. Sykes held onto the bars of his bike as it ground the right footpeg into the tarmac, and he picked it up and rejoined ahead of Melandri in seventeenth place. 

Alex Lowes and Michael van der Mark held a comfortable lead over a lonely Chaz Davies with Eugene Laverty a second behind him having to deal with a fast-closing Michael Ruben Rinaldi who was dragging Lorenzo Savadori with him, filling the hole made by Sykes's absence.

As the fight for fourth became a three bike affair, Marco Melandri, back in eighteenth place, was the fastest man on track and closing on Tom Sykes. A lap later, he had closed the gap of a second to catch and pass the Kawasaki rider on lap twelve. 

In the closing stages of the race, Lowes and van der Mark had four seconds of clear track behind them to Chaz Davies. This gap kept growing as Davies nursed his tyre to secure a safe podium. Lowes kept his pace up as van der Mark couldn't match his teammate's speed and Alex Lowes won his first World Superbike race and the pair gave Yamaha their first one-two since Marco Melandri beat Eugene Laverty in the closing race of 2011. 

Alex Lowes, Michael van der Mark and Chaz Davies made up the podium ahead of the Aprilias of Eugene Laverty and Lorenzo Savadori with Michael Ruben Rinaldi bringing the Ducati home for sixth place. Marco Melandri brought one point home ahead of the non-scoring Tom Sykes. 

Michael van der Mark's second place put him in third place of the championship, ahead of Tom Sykes and Marco Melandri and only nine points off Chaz Davies, with Davies making the best of a weekend where he was clearly struggling with grip, closing up to within sixty-five points of championship leader Rea. Alex Lowes is just three points off Marco Melandri's fifth place.

The world was treated to a speechless Alex Lowes, a man not normally lost for words, while Jonathan Rea probably has plenty to say about today.

2018 Brno World Supersport Race Results: Still A Tight Championship

Sixteen laps of Brno from 600cc bikes on road-legal tyres, with the tight World Supersport championship fight the way it is, it was always going to be fun.

Jules Cluzel got away from third place to lead into the first corner, ahead of Randy Krummenacher, Sandro Cortese, Raffaele De Rosa, Federico Caricasulo and Lucas Mahias, otherwise known as the top six of the championship. Cortese and Krummenacher swapped places on the first lap, and on the second, he went wide at one corner and lost a couple of places. Caricasulo crashed out at turn eight while his teammate Lucas Mahias set the fastest lap with a 2'03.886. 

Three laps in, the front four of Jules Cluzel, Sandro Cortese, Raffaele De Rosa and Lucas Mahias had a gap from Randy Krummenacher who was maintaining the pace of the leaders and slowly breaking free from Thomas Gradinger and Sheridan Morais. Another lap down and the gap was evident and was the same size as his gap from Mahias. At the front, Cortese took the lead at turn ten, but Cluzel snapped back and the pair swapped places a few times until Cluzel took the lead back definitively at the start of lap five. 

Sheridan Morais's run forward ended when he lost nineteen places in an off-track excursion at the punishing turn five. A lap later, the leading trio finally shook off Lucas Mahias as they charged past the yellow flags. Krummenacher's gap to Mahias was now the same as Gradinger's to him as everyone not in the top three dropped off the pace, but a few laps later, Krummenacher started matching the low 2'04 laps of the leaders, gaining ground on Mahias but without a chance of catching the podium fight. 

Four laps from the end, Krummenacher was closing on Mahias as the leading pair were strapped to each other for a fight and Raffaele De Rosa finally hit his limit and reluctantly let the leaders escape. Sandro Cortese in second place was visibly quicker than Jules Cluzel in the lead, but Cluzel had every angle covered defensively. 

As Cluzel's Yamaha twitched and slid around tight defensive lines, Sandro Cortese's Yamaha was a completely different bike, smooth on sweeping lines carrying plenty of speed right up to the point there was a Frenchman's bike in the way. Cortese gently slid both tyres while Cluzel just hammered the rear into submission, with nowhere near the pace of the German behind him, but a wide profile. 

On the last lap, Cortese had to have a go, taking the lead briefly on a sweeping line that allowed Cluzel back under him, and at turn four, Cortese nipped to the inside but Cluzel closed the door, forcing Cortese to sit up on the apex, the pair nearly coming a cropper as they all but touched. Cortese was on the utter limit and all Cluzel had to do to concede victory was leave a small gap or make a tiny mistake, but he did neither and the pair bolted down the finish straight with Jules Cluzel taking the flag ahead of Sandro Cortese. 

Rafaelle De Rosa came in a lonely third ahead of Lucas Mahias. Mahias managed to hold off Randy Krummenacher for fourth place and Thomas Gradinger came in a lonely sixth, with seconds of tarmac ahead and behind. 

Jules Cluzel's win ahead of Sandro Cortese closed the gap between the two in the championship fight, with Cortese's lead sliced to just two points. Randy Krummenacher dropped back to fifteen points behind CLuzel and only two points clear of Lucas Mahias in fourth place. Federico Caricasulo's DNF with Raffaele De Rosa taking the last podium spot means he relinquished fifth place to the MV Agusta rider.

2018 Brno World Supersport Superpole Results: Warm Weather Challenges

old_url: 

World Supersport Superpole one was contested by twenty one riders with Kyle Smith and Rob Hartog favourites to get promoted based on yesterday's times.

After one lap, Kyle Smith led Alfonso Coppola and Andrew Irwin, with a 2'04.954 and a lap later Smith took a 2'04.922 into the break.

After the break, Hannes Soomer put himself into second place behind Kyle Smith only to be knocked down to third by Hikari Okubo and a lap later, Okubo pushed Smith off the top spot  with nobody able else to challenge the top two times. Smith And Okubo joined the top ten for Superpole two. 

The second session opened with a 2'03.277 from Sandro Cortese which was topped by a 2'03.274 from Randy Krummenacher, a mere three thousandths of a second quicker. Raffaele De Rosa was third quickest as the riders pitted in for a cup of tea, or something.

Sandro Cortese took the top spot by sixth tenths of a second with a 2'02.670, the first 2'02 lap of the weekend, and the flag came out. With nobody able to improve too much, the grid was set with bikes still circulating. Sandro Cortese was the only rider with a 2'02 lap as Randy Krummenacher met yellow flags on his last chance to get close to Cortese, but he was still second on the grid ahead of Jules Cluzel. 

The second row was headed by Raffaele De Rosa who crashed out of his last lap, chucking his MV Agusta into the scenery, splitting the tank from the frame as his bike tried to make a bid for freedom. Lucas Mahias and Federico Caricasulo swapped places in the dying seconds of the session with Mahias taking fifth from Caricasulo.

2018 Brno World Superbike Race One Results: Third Time's The Charm

With everyone using the same higher-profile development tyre that served the top five so well at Donington, albeit with a slightly different compound, World Superbike race one ran for three laps of the advertised eighteen, led by Jonathan Rea, before Michael Ruben Rinaldi crashed into the air fence at turn five. This brought out the red flags as, like yesterday, the air fence needed a quick repair. The race was reduced to seventeen laps after a quick restart.

Jordi Torres crashed in the first start but was able to restart on his spare bike. Michael Ruben Rinaldi, who caused the red flag, was able to restart, but the time spend getting his bike ready meant he missed the quick start window and would start from the back of the grid. None of the front-runners changed tyres for the shortened restart.

As the riders lined up for the restart, a technical glitch caused false starts throughout the grid and the riders had to go through the while thing again for a third start and yet another lap sliced off the total; A sixteen lap restart with the grid set just like the second start, unfortunately for Michael Ruben Rinaldi. 

Tom Sykes got the best start this start and held it until turn two when Jonathan Rea pushed through to take the lead from him and after one lap, Rea was almost a second clear of Sykes, Alex Lowes and Marco Melandri. On lap two, Michael van der Mark took fifth place from Chaz Davies, but the fight for second place heated up as Alex Lowes took third from Melandri and tried to steal second place from Sykes, while Rea made like a rabbit and set the fastest lap, clearing off into the metaphorical Czech sunset.

A lap later, Melandri took third place back and turned his sights on Tom Sykes, wobbling his too-light rear end as he tried to take second place from the Englishman. The all-Yamaha fight for fourth place involved a hard thrust from van der Mark under Lowes followed by a cleaner take back from Lowes. 

Three laps down, Melandri crossed the line next to Sykes to start lap four, holding second place into turn one and finally making it stick. He saw Rea was two seconds ahead and on a hotter pace. Melandri's grip wasn't good enough to make chase, with his rear suffering with the heat, and he settled into second place and just kept his eyes on the gap to Sykes behind him.

The remainder of the race was fairly straight forward at the front, with Jonathan Rea and Marco Melandri safe at the front while Tom Sykes had two duelling Yamahas behind him as Alex Lowes and Michael van der Mark squabbled over fourth place, with every attempt to catch or pass Sykes thwarted by the other rider in blue nipping at their heels. Behind the Yamahas, Eugene Laverty and Chaz Davies scrapped over sixth place with Leon Camier and Lorenzo Savadori trying hard to join the fray. 

On lap eight, Eugene Laverty crowbarred Chaz Davies off the apex and apologised for his harsh move, and the two maintained their spat for two laps as they slowed each other enough to let Camier and Savadori catch up. 

On lap ten, it was Camier and Savadori's turn to provide the entertainment as the podium looked set, with Sykes finally getting enough of a gap from the Yamahas to settle into his own pace and manage his gaps. 

Once Eugene Laverty passed Chaz Davies for sixth place, he was able to break free, Davies no longer holding him back. Davies, however, lost another place to Laverty's teammate as Savadori despatched Camier and took on the Ducati. 

On the last lap, positions were set with over a second between everyone in the top eight, not giving anyone a chance at last lap heroics, and the riders just proceeded in an orderly manner across the finish line.

Jonathan Rea, on his third time of trying, finally beat Carl Fogarty's record of fifty nine wins, Fogarty having had the most wins in Superbike history for over twenty three years, and his sixtieth win extended his lead at the top of the championship to eighty one points over eighth-placed Chaz Davies. Marco Melandri's second place kept him in fifth place of the championship while Tom Sykes broke the tie for third with Michael van der Mark.

2018 Brno World Superbike Superpole Results: Perfect Qualifying Conditions

old_url: 

Superpole one for World Superbike was contested by ten riders fighting for two spots in Superpole two, with Eugene Laverty and Tati Mercado, based on their qualifying yesterday, the favourites for promotion.

Eugene Laverty opened the session with a 1'59.809 followed by a 1'59.768 and held the only sub-two minute laps before the mid-session break. Xavi Fores was second-quickest before pitting in. 

Yonny Hernandez briefly held the top spot with a 1'59.605 until Eugene Laverty took over a third of a second out of him with a 1'59.256 at the flag. With nobody on fast live laps, the long circuit not allowing as many laps as the shorter ones on the calendar, Laverty and Hernandez qualified for Superpole two before everyone's final times were recorded. 

Yonny Hernandez started his first ever Superpole two, but it was Michael van der Mark that briefly held the quickest time after one lap, with a 1'59.184 but Jonathan Rea deposed him with a 1'58.881 and everyone pitted in for qualifying tyres. 

Jonathan Rea got one fast lap in before the flag came out, a 1'57.885, with Marco Melandri hitting the flag within two hundredths of Rea's time, but it was Tom Sykes who got the best out of the qualifying tyre, recording a pole position record of 1'57.687, two tenths ahead of Rea and Melandri. Alex Lowes, Eugene Laverty and Michael van der Mark made up the second row for today's race.

Tom Sykes's pole position record beat a certain Tom Sykes's 2012 qualifying record from last time the series raced here.
