Results World Superbike-Supersport, Assen, The Netherlands


REA SCORES FIRST HONDA WIN OF THE 2014 SEASON

Two podium finishes, including a wet race two win at Assen in the FIM Superbike World Championship have put Jonathan Rea fourth in the championship fight after three rounds.

At his team’s home track Rea was fast all weekend, qualifying in fifth place and taking third place in race one. The first race was held in basically dry conditions with damp patches in evidence around the circuit at the start. It was scheduled for 21 laps but had to be stopped early due to an oil leak from one of the competitor’s machines. The results were called after 16 laps with Rea 4.116 seconds behind race winner Sylvain Guintoli (Aprilia) and one place behind Tom Sykes (Kawasaki) on the podium.

In the second race Rea hit the front early and pushed hard to get away from some recognised rain experts immediately behind him. His tactic worked perfectly as he led every lap, winning the much-delayed final ten lap race by 2.2 seconds, ahead of Alex Lowes (Suzuki) and Davide Giugliano (Ducati).

Leon Haslam (Pata Honda World Superbike Team) scored eighth place in race one after a fight with the main warring pack but improved to fifth in race two, securing his best individual race finish of the year so far. Leon is now ninth in the championship, having scored points in all races except the season opener in Australia.

Race two was held in full wet conditions after a dry race had been initially declared. A sudden shower that developed into a deluge just before the re-start caused the wet tyres to be brought out but the first attempted running of the race lasted only three laps before worsening conditions caused the red flag to be waved to stop the race.

After two track inspections the rain eased enough to allow a ten-lap race to take place, with Rea running out a popular winner on a great day for Dutch race fans, after Michael van der Mark won the WSS race for Pata Honda.

The next round takes place in Italy, at the classic Imola circuit, on Sunday 11 May.

VAN DER MARK WINS HIS FIRST WSS RACE AT HIS HOME ROUND

Michael van der Mark (Pata Honda World Supersport Team) was unstoppable in the third round of the FIM Supersport World Championship at his home venue of Assen, winning by a massive 9.494 seconds and jumping up to second in the championship standings in the process.

The 21-year-old Dutch rider led from lap two to the 18th and final tour around the 4.542km circuit, cheered on by his enthusiastic home crowd. He took the new lap record in what was his second podium scoring ride of the 2014 championship, on lap seven with a time of 1’38.587s. He had qualified on the front row in third place and scored his fifth career podium at this race.

‘Mikey’ became the first Dutch WSS race winner since 2004 and the first rider in the Ten Kate-operated WSS effort to win a race since 2011.

Lorenzo Zanetti (Pata Honda World Supersport Team) felt confident of a good result and he duly scored fifth place in the race after starting from seventh place on the grid. He now occupies eighth place in the overall points standings. He improved on his qualifying performance by two positions in the race with his own home round coming up next, at Imola in Italy.

Another Italian rider, Raffaele De Rosa (CIA Insurance Honda) had a lonely race in eighth position, having started tenth on the grid. He found a good setup for the race with his team and used it to the full, but could not stay with the leading groups of riders and finished 21.3 seconds behind van der Mark.

Marco Bussolotti (Team Lorini Honda) had a fighting midfield ride to score points in 11th place, four seconds up on 13th placed Ratthapark Wilairot (Core PTR Honda). Bussolotti’s team-mate Riccardo Russo (Team Lorini Honda) was the final Honda points scorer in 14th.

Nacho Calero (CIA Insurance Honda) experienced a technical issue in the morning but recovered to take 17th place, with British rider Fraser Rogers (Com Plus SMS Racing) 19th from the 21 finishers.

Jack Kennedy (CIA Insurance Honda) fell while trying to defend sixth place, having been as high as third after qualifying in fifth place.

The next round is at Imola, Italy, on 11 May.

HONDA RIDER COMMENTS:

Jonathan Rea (Pata Honda World Superbike Team)
Race result: 3rd / 1st Championship position: 4th
“It is great to win our first race of the year but the worst part of race two was waiting in the garage for the delays. It was nice to be back on the podium in race one as well and that was our target this weekend. Congratulations to Sylvain because he set an incredible pace at the start and then I had a bit of a battle with the Kawasaki’s. It seems that when I get past them I drop a little bit and I am not sure why that is. I think I had the pace to be closer. The Pata Honda team and the whole Ten Kate family have had a great day - Mikey winning the WSS race and me to winning at my team’s home round. I want to say thanks to all the team and to the fans who stayed behind to watch race two in the wet conditions after a long delay.”

Leon Haslam (Pata Honda World Superbike Team)
Race result: 8th / 5th Championship position: 9th
“Race one was a bit frustrating really because I felt we could have been easily fifth from where we were. The pace wasn’t that mega but we had a lot of issues again this weekend. It wasn’t right in race one but I think fifth was still possible. The flag put an early end to it anyway. I was confident that, for the dry, we’d made the right move for race two but it was wet. In the first part I was already up to fifth when they stopped it but, in part two, I got caught behind Chaz [Davies] and it took me a few laps to get by him. When I passed him, everyone had gone, but I was able to be one of the fastest guys on track in the last three laps. I managed to get past Baz and Melandri and was closing the gap to Tom [Sykes] but then ran out of time. We hadn’t really done any wet testing, so it was positive that we weren’t too far away. The pace was pretty good but starting from where we were on the grid didn’t help either..”

Michael van der Mark (Pata Honda World Supersport Team)
Race result: 1st Championship position: 2nd
“I could not find a better place to take my first win than my home race. All weekend the team worked well and the bike worked great. My start was not really perfect but when I was with Florian and Kenan I could see that I was faster. So as soon as I passed them I kept pushing all race long because I did not want to make any mistakes. I am really thankful to the team, sponsors and friends and fans who came here. I am also thankful to the Clinica Mobile because last night I was really sick, but this morning they have helped me a lot this morning.”

Lorenzo Zanetti (Pata Honda World Supersport Team)
Race result: 5th Championship position: 8th
“This was a positive weekend for all the team. First for Mickey’s win but also for me it was important because this was one of my ‘bad’ tracks, here and Portimao, and since I arrived here we worked with the team to search for and keep a good set-up. In the end I think that it was a good race but I just had from the start a problem on the front tyre, and I think without that problem it would have been possible to fight with Marino for the podium. In the end I am quite happy because I had a good pace and a good rhythm and I am confident for Imola next time.”

Raffaele De Rosa (CIA Insurance Honda)
Race result: 8th Championship position: 5th
“My bike and settings this weekend were better for the race and that helped me. I had to run many laps alone in the race and that made it difficult to move forward. In the mid race I had the same pace as Cluzel or Zanetti but I was alone behind them and could not catch them. I needed to do better in qualifying to finish higher up.”

Ratthapark Wilairot (Core PTR Honda)
Race result: 13th Championship position: 17th
"We did not have a good weekend because many times we had technical problems in the front and then we lost some time in the free practice and also in qualifying. We did not have a good session because we could only make two or three laps before the finish. We did not qualify well so we were near the back but I tried to make a good race and finish it. I am sure we will do better in Imola."

Jack Kennedy (CIA Insurance Honda)
Race result: DNF Championship position: 19th
“I am OK, no damage after my fall. I would say I was about 20mm off line. Coghlan came alongside me and I had to let the brake off a little bit to get in front of him and tip in, and the front went away. I was on the limit to try and stay with the front boys after I got a good start. It is a pity because good points is what I need at this stage as I have not been scoring many and that is not like me to not be consistent in scoring. We have to look at good finishes but look at good results as well. I think a little bit more speed would help in the straights because I am having to work hard in the corners to stay with them.”
