2009 World Superbikes Monza QP2 Result - Fabrizio Continues To Rule

The morning qualifying saw Max Neukirchner finish 2nd fastest, ahead of Johnny Rea on the Ten Kate Honda, Rea finally looking like a contender again.

Fabrizio's team mate and championship leader Noriyuki Haga was 4th quickest in the second qualifying session, ahead of Max Biaggi on the Aprilia and Yamaha's Ben Spies. The final grid will be settled during this afternoon's Superpole sessions.

2009 World Superbikes Monza QP1 Result - Fabrizio Makes An Impression At Home

Michel Fabrizio was once again fastest during the first official qualifying practice at Monza this afternoon. But unlike in free practice earlier today, Fabrizio's hegemony went completely unchallenged. Fabrizio was up to half a second faster than his nearest rivals for most of the session, only surrendering a couple of tenths towards the end. Fabrizio is in sparkling form at Monza, and with an advantage of over 0.3 seconds over the 2nd place man, is very much the rider to beat at Monza.

Xerox Ducati team mate Noriyuki Haga was the nearest rider until the final few minutes, when British Yamaha rider Tom Sykes jumped in to take second place. Sykes has been in the shadow of his team mate so far this season, but the cheery Brit took a big step out forward at Monza, consistently near the top of the timesheets. Sykes' fast lap pushed Haga down into 3rd, just 3/100ths off Sykes' time.

The Hondas had been mostly invisible throughout qualifying, until Johnny Rea put in a fast lap in the dying seconds of the session to take 4th place. Rea's position was at the expense of the two Suzukis, Max Neukirchner and Yukio Kagayama forced down to 5th and 6th, though both the German and the Japanese rider had been fast earlier in the session.

Ben Spies finished uncharacteristically far down the field, only managing to set the 7th fastest time on his Yamaha Motor Italia YZF-R1. But given the tiny difference between 4th and 9th, Spies could have been further forward or further back if he had been just a couple of hundredths faster or slower. Spies did finish ahead of Max Biaggi, which will have disappointed the Italian veteran. Leon Haslam, the man who has been the fastest Honda rider so far this year, could only manage the 12th quickest time, while the privateer Ducatis are pretty far down the field, Shane Byrne the first of them in 10th, and Jakub Smrz just managing 13th.

Qualifying and practice continues tomorrow, with pole to be settled in the Superpole sessions tomorrow afternoon.

2009 World Supersport Monza FP1 Result - Crutchlow Shows Yamahas Still Fast At Monza

Cal Crutchlow was the quickest rider out of the traps in the first session of free practice at Monza this afternoon on his very first race at the circuit. Crutchlow took a while to learn the track, but was up into the top three by halfway through the session, and taking 1st with 20 minutes to go. Crutchlow shared first place with Fabien Foret, and Joan Lascorz for the second half of FP1, before setting his fastest lap on his last lap around the track.

Kawasaki's Joan Lascorz ended the session 2nd fastest, ahead of the surprising Mark Aitchison on the Althea Honda. Aitchison has been making quiet progress this season, and is now starting to get himself noticed. Crutchlow's team mate Fabien Foret finished the session in 4th spot. Biggest surprise of the session was the local boy Danilo Dell'Omo, who is normally lucky to get inside the top 15, but the Italian was near the top of the timesheets all afternoon, finally ending up in 6th spot.

The Ten Kate riders finished best of the pre-race favorites, but Andrew Pitt and Kenan Sofuoglu could only managed the 8th and 9th times, while Eugene Laverty was 11th fastest on his debut at Monza. Ant West, on the podium here in his first ever Supersport race two years ago, had a miserable start to the weekend, ending up 21st in the standings.

Michel Fabrizio finished top of the timesheets in the first session of Free Practice at Monza for the World Superbike class. Fabrizio and Ben Spies swapped places for the lead throughout the session, both men much faster than the rest for most of practice, but Fabrizio pulled a gap that proved to be unbridgable with 8 minutes of the session left.

The Yamahas are clearly working well at Monza, as Spies' team mate Tom Sykes took 3rd spot, just behind his team mate, with the Suzukis of Max Neukirchner and Yukio Kagayama next in 4th and 5th. Noriyuki Haga was 6th fastest in the session, making it three teams sharing the top 6 spots.

2009 Jerez MotoGP Race Result - Cat And Mouse Race Produces Unsurprising Surprise

Result and summary of the Jerez MotoGP Race:

Valentino Rossi got the win he had longed for since the start of the season at Jerez on Sunday, despite starting from the second row. Dani Pedrosa and Casey Stoner got away from the start, while Rossi got caught up behind team mate Jorge Lorenzo. It took Rossi two laps to get past Lorenzo, and once past him, he chased first Casey Stoner down, and then Dani Pedrosa, finally passing the Spaniard on lap 18. Pedrosa was comfortably 2nd, with a delighted Casey Stoner coming home in 3rd, his first ever podium at Jerez. Stoner was lucky to hold on to 3rd, after Jorge Lorenzo crashed out as he chased the Ducati down.

Honorable mentions go to Randy de Puniet, who rode a mature race to come home 4th, and Marco Melandri, bringing the hopeless Hayate home in 5th. Perhaps it isn't so hopeless after all. Andrea Dovizioso had a very mature race, climbing back up to 8th after running off track and rejoining in 16th.

Results and report of the 250cc race at Jerez:

Hiroshi Aoyama won a race-long thriller, depriving the Spanish fans of a home victory for the second time on Sunday. Polesitter Alex Debon led away from the line, but within 3 laps, Alvaro Bautista, Marco Simoncelli, Hiroshi Aoyama and Hector Barbera came by and pulled away, though Barbera could do little more than follow. Three nationalities on three different bikes swapped places on almost every lap, often multiple times. The Sito Pons, Dry Sack and Angel Nieto corners were the favorite passing spots, with Simoncelli, Bautista and Aoyama taking turns at the front. 

With four laps to go, Marco Simoncelli's choice of a softer front tire failed on him, the front sliding and eventually causing him to lose touch with Bautista and Aoyama, and letting the lurking Barbera past. Bautista led across the line to start the final lap, but Aoyama was just inches from the back wheel of the Aprilia. Aoyama pushed at Pons and Dry Sack, and finally dived underneath at Nieto, taking the lead away at the corner named after another Spanish racing great, but Bautista was not ready to surrender, chasing the Honda of Aoyama down through the long fast rights that lead into the final corner, then diving up the inside into Jerez' infamous Turn 13, the corner that has decided so many races.

It was a move Bautista had made before, and Aoyama had countered successfully several times through the race. Bautista entered the corner ahead, but ran a little wide, allowing Aoyama to come back underneath and hold the lead across the line to take victory. Marco Simoncelli crossed the line in 3rd, scoring his first points of the season, having snatched back the final podium place from Hector Barbera on the last lap. Thomas Luthi crossed the line in 5th, successfully pipping Mattia Pasini on the last lap.

2009 Jerez 125cc Race Result - Huge Win, Tight Battle For Second

Results and summary of the 125cc race at Jerez: 

Bradley Smith finally got his long-expected and long-awaited first win in the 125cc class at Jerez today. The British rider got a great start and disappeared at the front. Team mate Julian Simon got a terrible start and fought his way through the field to start chasing Smith, but crashed out on lap 6 as he was closing rapidly on the Briton. Championship leader Andrea Iannone had also got a terrible start, made worse by crashing out on the first lap. Iannone rejoined, but could not get back into the points.

Smith's margin of victory was huge, gaining 2 seconds a lap in the first half of the race, but the battle for the rest of the podium was intense. In the first half of the race, Scott Redding, Sandro Cortese, Marc Marquez and Sergio Gadea swapped paint for 2nd, allowing Pol Espargaro, Efren Vazquez and Jonas Folger to catch them. Folger's feat was especially impressive, starting from 35th on the grid and fighting his way forward to be in contention for the podium. In the end, the young German's enthusiasm got the better of him, diving underneath Pol Espargaro into the final corner, but crashing out. Folger's crash forced Espargaro wide and out of contention, and on the final run out of the last corner, Sergio Gadea just pipped Marc Marquez to the line, making it a one-two for the Bancaja Aspar team.

It was a good day overall for British fans, as Scott Redding came home in 4th, and Danny Webb brought the De Graaf Aprilia in 8th. Marquez' team mate, the American Cameron Beaubier als had a good ride, scoring his first points in the championship.
