MotoGP Race And Practice Results

2017 Qatar World Superbike Race One Results: "Super Nice"

old_url: 

Seventeen laps in the desert under artificial lighting, the air temperature was 28ºC and it was the penultimate round of the battle for second place between Tom Sykes and Chaz Davies.

Both Kawasakis got a strong start, with Jonathan Rea leading Tom Sykes into the first turn. Alex Lowes had three Ducatis behind him, with Xavi Fores ahead of the fight between Marco Melandri and Chaz Davies, a fight Davies won on the first lap, and Davies took the fight to Fores only to outbrake him into turn one of lap two. Rea set the fastest lap on lap two and ended the lapover a second clear of his teammate.

Alex Lowes took second place from Tom Sykes and a lap later, Chaz Davies sneaked past Sykes to take third place from him, and at the end of the lap, charging to second place for the start of lap five. Jonathan Rea was over two seconds ahead. Tom Sykes, also in the hunt for second place in the championship, saw a Ducati charge past him into turn one, the Barni Ducati of Xavi Fores taking fourth place. At the end of the lap, Marco Melandri made a close pass on Sykes, and Sykes was able to switch back on the inside of the Ducati out of the corner and pull alongside Melandri as they launched down the straight. The slight figure of Melandri tucked in behind the plastics and out-dragged Sykes's Kawasaki in a straight line. Sykes was back to sixth place and had Michael van der Mark change his target from Melandri to Sykes, nipping at his heels. Xavi Fores made a pass stick on Alex Lowes, taking the middle spot in the tight Davies, Fores and Lowes battle for second.

On lap seven, Michael van der Mark nipped a little too closely at Tom Sykes's rear wheel and the two bikes touched, van der Mark's front tyre to Sykes's rear entering a corner. Rear tyres tend to win fights like that and this was no exception and van der Mark's Yamaha, faced with a leant-over front tyre that was suddenly not behaving, gave up traction and the Dutch rider, a week after his MotoGP debut, found himself in the gravel.

A few laps later, lap eleven, with Rea extending his lead to over three seconds and the three-way battle for second anticipating the arrival of a hard-charging Marco Melandri, Xavi Fores suddenly stick is hand up, sitting up down the straight as his bike bounced a bit like the engine was punching it up and down, and he pulled over, ending the chance of Fores's first dry race podium. This put Tom Sykes up to fifth place. Further round the lap, Alex Lowes inexplicably crashed out, with his front tyre just losing grip on a corner that didn't look in any way out of the ordinary. Tom Sykes was now in fourth place and his hopes for second in the championship were renewed.

As Rea, Davies and Melandri all ran their own races, not close enough to challenge or be challenged, Eugene Laverty caught Sykes, bringing Lorenzo Savadori with him. Two laps from the end, Laverty pushed Sykes aside to take fourth place and Savadori followed him through the Aprilia-sized gap to push Sykes back to sixth. Meanwhile, Alex Lowes had started his bike back up only to crash out of thirteenth in a similar way to his first crash, only on a left hander instead of a right.

As the flag came out, Jonathan Rea took Kawasaki's first victory at Qatar, ahead of Chaz Davies and Marco Melandri and the trio were the first riders to go to the new style podium. Next Year, World Superbike's parc fermé will be in the paddock as part of the paddock show, and this weekend is the first test of the new system. Jonathan Rea thought it was "super nice" to ride through the crowds to Parc Fermé and stand on the podium with the fans cheering them on in the paddock. How nice the fans will think this will be when the podium is in a non-dry country, where the riders get to spray Prosecco, remains to be seen, however.

2017 Qatar World Supersport Superpole Results: New Lap Record

old_url: 

World Supersport qualifying had some surprising names in Superpole one, fighting for only two slots in Superpole two.

At the start of the opening session, Mashel Al Naimi briefly sat at the top of the timing screen in front of his home crowd, but Gino Rea knocked him off the top after the first fast laps were recorded. After one lap, almost everyone returned for a new tyre, and as they headed out with new tyres, the riders were spread more evenly over the track instead of all being bunched up together.

Sheridan Morais bolted from the tyre break with a 2'01.795, two thirds quicker than Gino Rea's fast time, only to be knocked down a place by PJ Jacobsen's 2'01.757 on his MV Agusta. After being knocked down to fourth by Christoffer Bergman, Gino Rea took third place back but couldn't break into the top two places. PJ Jacobsen and Sheridan Morais were promoted to Superpole two.

Niki Tuuli opened Superpole two with a 2'01.658, ahead of championship leader Lucas Mahias, Jules Cluzel and the determined Kenan Sofuoglu, and once again, most riders pitted back in after only one complete timed lap.

After the last tea break of the year, PJ Jacobsen held pole position briefly, but Jules Cluzel put in a 2'01.284 to go quickest. Further back on the lap, both Lucas Mahias and Kenan Sofuoglu had the pace to take pole position. Mahias went quickest, setting a new qualifying record, before the chequered flag came out, with Sofuoglu fourth quickest.

The session would down without anyone making any great changes, leaving Lucas Mahias in pole position ahead of Jules Cluzel and Niki Tuuli with Kenan Sofuoglu leading the second row ahead of PJ Jacobsen and Sheridan Morais.

Kenan Sofuoglu will need to report to the medical centre to get green lit for the race.

2017 Qatar World Superbike Superpole Results: Last Qualifying Of The Year

old_url: 

The last Superpole of the year opened under the floodlights, with second place in the championship to be decided between Tom Sykes and Chaz Davies.

Superpole one went down to the wire with who was promoted, with Sylvain Guintoli taking the top spot from Leon Camier. pushing Raffaele De Rosa out of promotion at the chequered flag.

The first fast lap of Superpole two was a 1'56.993 by Jonathan Rea, the fastest lap of the weekend so far, with Alex Lowes six tenths of a second off his pace. Rea popped back to the pits after his quick lap, joined by several other riders swapping out their rear wheels for one fitted with a qualifying tyre.

Leaving it rather late, with a handful of seconds left before the flag, Rea's fast lap on race rubber still stood as the fastest lap until there were only eight seconds left when Rea moved the target to a 1'56.228 on a qualifying tyre. Alex Lowes continued his fine form second quickest, splitting the Kawasakis of Rea and Tom Sykes on the front row.

2017 Sepang MotoGP Race: A Pair Of Sixes With A King Nigh

Andrea Dovizioso overcame a slick Sepang track, a fast teammate and long odds Sunday to keep his 2017 MotoGP championship quest alive in Malaysia with a sixth win of the season. The victory, coupled with points leader Marc Marquez's fourth-place finish, means the two riders now are separated by 21 points with the season's final race, Valencia, in two weeks.

Both riders have six wins. For Marquez to lock up his championship, he can finish 11th or higher in the final race regardless of Dovizioso's performance. If the pair end up tied in points -- a Dovizioso win coupled with a Marquez 12th -- then the Italian would take the champioship by virtue of race wins. In other words, the odds remain long for the 31-year-old Ducati rider to win his first MotoGP championship.

Dovizioso's teammate Jorge Lorenzo took second in the wet race after leading into the race's late stages. Rookie of the year Johann Zarco grabbed the final podium spot with a lonely third place, eight seconds ahead of fourth-place Marc Marquez. Pole-sitter Dani Pedrosa managed fifth after getting swamped at the race's start.

Danilo Petrucci climbed into sixth after starting at the back of the grid. The Italian had qualifed 13th but he ended up starting at back of a grid after a mechanical problem just before the start forced him into the pits and onto his backup bike. Valentino Rossi, who lined up at fourth on the grid only to get pushed to 13th on the first lap, fought his way back into seventh.

Jack Miller (8th), Maverick Vinales (9th) and Pol Espargaro completed the top 10.

The rain started in earnest just before the start of the MotoGP race. Zarco got the lead out of the first corner when both Marquez and Pedrosa ran wide into Turn 1. Lorenzo, too, pounced and pushed into second closely tracked by Marquez, Dovizioso and Pedrosa. Nearly right away, Zarco began pulling a gap on Lorenzo who, in turn, began to pull away from Marquez. 

With 16 laps to go, Dovizioso began pressuring Marquez, passing him once and then once again for good a lap later. Within two more laps, the Italian began to gain on the front two riders, closing within six-tenths of Lorenzo. Lorenzo also began reeling in Zarco, passing him for good with 15 laps remaining. One lap later, Dovizioso also passed the Frenchman.

Soon, Zarco began falling off the pace of the two at the front. But he was still building a gap to Marquez who could not find a consistent pace on the Honda in the rain. With five laps left, Zarco had built a three-second lead over Marquez. At the front, Lorenzo was losing ground to Dovizioso. At Turn 15 with four laps left, Lorenzo nearly low-sided and ran wide, allowing Dovizioso through and into first -- a place he held to the finish line.
