2017 Philip Island World Superbike Superpole Results: Great Weather

old_url: 

Eleven riders took part in Superpole one in near-perfect conditions, aiming to take one of the two top spots to advance to the second session. Eugene Laverty, sporting duel-ready musketeer facial hair, was favourite to advance to the second session, eleventh quickest ahead of Michael van der Mark. Leon Camier, thirteenth quickest, missed out on most of the qualifying yesterday and went into Superpole with very little data and a fistful of guesses.

Josh Brookes was the first rider to set a complete flying lap, but once everyone had recorded a lap, Leon Camier was quickest with a benchmark of 1'31.213 ahead of Eugene Laverty and Michael van der Mark. Laverty crashed out at turn two on his second timed lap and his bike were bundled into the back of a van and rushed back to the pits while Laverty got a lift on a moped. After a fast lap, everyone returned to the pits to get new tyres and to have their bikes fiddled with.

Stefan Bradl was the first rider to head back out but didn't get up to pace immediately, unlike Leon Camier who put in a 1'31.011 while Michael van der Mark knocked Eugene Laverty down to third place, two tenths off Camier. Randy Krummenacher improved his time but couldn't beat Laverty's third placed lap. As the flag came out, no riders were on laps that could challenge the top two and Leon Camier and Michael van der Mark advanced to Superpole two.

Jonathan Rea was the first out, as usual, and the reigning world champion set a 1'30.609 with Xavi Fores, Marco Melandri and Tom Sykes making up the top four after one lap. Chaz Davies slotted into fifth place after his second lap, knocking Michael van der Mark down to sixth. Then, everyone popped back to their garages to fit the super-sticky disposable qualifying tyres and dreams of 1'29 laps.

With four minutes left, riders started trickling out onto the track for one last fast lap. Michael van der Mark was the first to spend his Q tyre, bumping himself up to third place, but Tom Sykes was further back with what looked like it was going to be a blistering lap and the first of the 1'29s. Sykes put in a 1'29.605 with Marco Melandri just over a tenth further back. Xavi Fores crashed out and wasn't able to get the top five lap he was almost certain to get. Just like it looked like another pole position for Sykes, Rea tied together a very fast final sector and cut over three hundredths of a second from his teammate's lap with a 1'29.573. Jonathan Rea, Tom Sykes, Marco Melandri and Chaz Davies all managed to get 1'29 laps with Alex Lowes in fifth place under Tom Sykes's 2016 pole lap.

Jonathan Rea takes the first pole position of the year, but for the first time in World Superbike, the qualifying only counts for the first race, with race two positions determined in part by the results of race one.

old_url: 

As the flag signalled the end of the morning's untimed session, Marco Melandri deposed Jonathan Rea from the top spot only to have Rea snatch it right back forty seconds later, over a third of a second quicker. Xavi Fores was third quickest ahead of Chaz Davies, putting three Ducatis in the top four. Tom Sykes and Alex Lowes rounded out the top six.

old_url: 

Chaz Davies held off Jonathan Rea by under a tenth of a second at the end of the year's first timed session. There was a red flag early in the session due to oil on the track, but it caused less than ten minutes of stoppage. Xavi Fores was third quickest on the BARNI Ducati, ahead of Tom Sykes and Marco Melandri. Josh Brookes, the only wildcard of the weekend, was sixteenth quickest, almost two seconds off the frontrunners.

2017 Jerez Moto2 & Moto3 Private Test: Nakagami, Bulega Fastest After One Day of Dry Track

old_url: 

The Moto2 and Moto3 teams were back to work over the past two days, a large contingent gathered to prepare for the 2017 season. Fine weather greeted the riders on the first day of the test, but the second day, Thursday, started with the track covered with sand after strong winds blew sand across from North Africa, then rain hit the track and washed out the rest of the test. A few riders went out on Thursday, but they were nearly 20 seconds off the pace.

Takaaki Nakagami was the fastest rider on Wednesday, ending the test with a lap of 1'42.210. The Forward Racing duo of Lorenzo Baldassarri and Luca Marini were second and third respectively, not far off the time of Nakagami. Franco Morbidelli was fourth fastest, ahead of Danny Kent on the Suter, the former Moto3 champion having switched from Kalex for the 2017 season.

in the Moto3 class, it was Nicolo Bulega who led the way, the Sky VR46 rider putting his KTM just ahead of Philipp Oettl's. Jorge Martin was the fastest Honda rider in third, the Gresini Honda rider just a fraction faster than Romano Fenati, also on a Honda. John McPhee is also back on a Honda, after riding a Mahindra in 2016, and the Scotsman was nearly two thirds of a second off the time of Bulega.

The Moto2 and Moto3 teams take a break for the next two days, as the Repsol Honda team take to the track to run through the final test of their RC213V engine. They will be joined on track by Alex Marquez, who stays on for one more day after crashing during testing. From 27th February to 1st March, another group of Moto2 and Moto3 riders take to the track, before the first official test for the two support classes from 8-10 March.

2017 Phillip Island WSBK Test, Day 2: Rea, Jacobsen Fastest

old_url: 

Jonathan Rea has topped the final World Superbike test of the 2017 preseason, a few days before the season kicks off in earnest at Phillip Island. The reigning champion was fastest in the morning session, though he had to cede top spot to Marco Melandri in the afternoon. But the Kawasaki man had gone fast enough in the morning to just edge the Ducati of Melandri, and end the test as fastest overall.

Chaz Davies was third fastest, three tenths off the time of his Ducati teammate Melandri, but still ahead of the Kawasaki if Tom Sykes. Xavi Fores made it three Ducatis in the top five, while Leon Camier put the MV Agusta into 6th place, in what is a promising start to the 2017 season.

The MV Agusta topped the timesheets in the World Supersport class, PJ Jacobsen taking a big lead over Roby Rolfo. The American led the Italian - also aboard an MV Agusta 675 - in the morning, but Rolfo was unable to improve his time, suffering a crash towards the end of the morning session, colliding with Gino Rea. Jules Cluzel put the Honda into third spot, just ahead of the two Yamahas of Lucas Mahias and Federico Caricasulo. Kenan Sofuoglu rode, but was forced to withdraw from the two opening rounds of World Supersport after a hand injury proved to be causing him too much pain.

2017 Phillip Island WSBK Test: Fores, Cluzel Top Weather-Affected Day

old_url: 

After three glorious days for MotoGP testing, the weather at Phillip Island has taken a turn for the worse. The first day of the final two-day test for the WorldSBK series ahead of this weekend's opener was hampered by strong winds and intermittent showers, wreaking havoc on the teams' testing programs.

The World Supersport series had the best of the weather, the first hour of the morning taking place on a track that was pretty well dry, but the rain hit shortly after that. Showers continued through the first session for the World Superbike class, but relented in the afternoon, giving the WorldSBK men a little dry track time.

Xavi Forés ended the day on top of the timesheets in the World Superbike class, putting in a couple of quick laps at the very end of the day. The Barni Ducati rider bumped reigning WorldSBK champion Jonathan Rea off top spot, the Kawasaki rider holding on to second ahead of Marco Melandri on the factory Ducati. Michael van der Mark, who led the timesheets early on in the session, finished fourth on the Yamaha, just ahead of Leon Camier on the MV Agusta.

In the World Supersport class, it was Jules Cluzel who was quickest, the CIA Landlord Insurance Honda rider taking over from Robbie Rolfo on the MV Agusta. Kyle Smith was the third fastest man, finishing ahead of Hikari Okubo. All times were set in the morning, as the WorldSSP class' afternoon session remained wet.

Kenan Sofuoglu made his first return to the track after breaking bones in his hand. The reigning World Supersport champion went out on track in the morning, but did not ride in the afternoon, not willing to risk falling and reinjuring his hand in the tricky conditions on track.
