REA AND HASLAM SCORE TOP TENS ON RACEDAY AT THEIR HOME ROUND

Jonathan Rea (Pata Honda World Superbike Team) and his team-mate Leon Haslam (Pata Honda World Superbike Team) were unable to capitalise on the excitement of racing at their home round this weekend, with Rea finishing sixth on two occasions and Haslam scoring a best of seventh in race two. Haslam had returned to real form in Superpole, finishing second in wet conditions but on raceday he only improved on his race one eighth place by one position.

Rea had arrived at Donington on the back of three race wins in succession, but on what he felt was a low grip circuit in the dry and occasionally sunny conditions of raceday he could not find the drive grip to let him compete at the very front. He had qualified eighth in a wet Superpole contest on Saturday, after finding some set-up issues on the dry first day, which featured three practice sessions, not the usual two.

Rea finished 14 seconds behind double race winner Tom Sykes (Kawasaki) in race one and then almost 18 seconds back in race two.

Rea lost the championship lead he had earned with a double win at the previous round in Imola, but he is second equal in the points rankings after Donington, alongside double second place man today, Loris Baz (Kawasaki), but with Rea ranked higher because of his race wins. Haslam is now eighth in the points standings.

The championship heads to the new SBK venue of Sepang in Malaysia, with raceday on 8th June.

SECOND WIN FOR VAN DER MARK GIVES HIM CLEAR CHAMPIONSHIP POINTS LEAD

Michael van der Mark (Pata Honda World Supersport Team) won his second race of the year in impressive style after taking pole in wet conditions on Saturday for the fourth round of the FIM Supersport World Championship. His victory takes him to a clear 14-point championship-leading advantage over Florian Marino (Kawasaki) who was fifth at Donington.

Imola race winner Lorenzo Zanetti (Pata Honda World Supersport Team) was desperately unlucky to have a technical issue prevent him from challenging for a podium finish at one of his favourite circuits. He had to retire on lap 15 and he is now fifth in the championship, 41 points from his team-mate van der Mark.

Van der Mark shared the podium with second place rider Jules Cluzel (MV Agusta) whom he beat in a tough final lap fight, with Mikey only 0.114 seconds ahead at the flag after a clever last corner manoeuvre. Kevin Coghlan (Yamaha) finished third.

Van der Mark took the lead on lap 16, having been down in sixth place at one time and in a group behind the leaders. The Dutch rider worked his way forward at strong pace that gave him the race fastest lap on lap seven, if not the lap record.

The next best Honda finisher after ‘Mikey’ was Irishman Jack Kennedy (CIA Insurance Honda) who made great progress on a dry track from a lowly wet qualifying position of 18th to go seventh. This was his best finish of the year and it moved him into the top 15 in the championship.

Raffaele De Rosa (CIA Insurance Honda) placed a strong ninth in the race after qualifying 22nd, and Marco Bussolotti (Team Lorini Honda) was 11th.

A promising race for Ratthapark Wilairot (Core PTR Honda) ended up in 12th place after he ran off the track on two occasions trying to pass riders off line. Riccardo Russo (Team Lorini Honda) was one place behind the Thai rider.

At his home round Fraser Rogers (Com Plus SMS Racing) was 18th; Nacho Calero (CIA Insurance Honda) was a non-starter after a fall on Saturday.

The next round, the sixth in a13-round series, takes place in Malaysia, at the regular MotoGP venue of Sepang.

HONDA RIDER COMMENTS:

Jonathan Rea (Pata Honda World Superbike Team)
Race result: 6th / 6th Championship position: 2nd
“It’s not been the perfect weekend after Imola, but I think we were ready for that. We really struggled on Friday with a few things and the low-grip nature of Donington caused us to suffer quite a lot throughout the weekend. In both races it was a struggle, and it’s difficult for me to understand how the bike was so good in Imola and why we struggled more here. But finishing two 23-lap races will give the guys some great data to take away and look at, so when, in the future, we arrive at circuits that aren’t so grippy, we can have an idea of how to maximise a result. We finished quite far from the race winners today and it’s not the best situation. But we can leave Donington with some positives and we’re all really looking forward to the next few races.”

Leon Haslam (Pata Honda World Superbike Team)
Race result: 8th / 7th Championship position: 8th
“I was happy with qualifying in the wet but the races have not been good at all. Finishing eighth and seventh is only slightly offset by the fact that Jonathan had the same problems this weekend. In race two I caught up in some carnage with a couple of incidents at the hairpin and ended up dropping from third to about twelfth. That finished the afternoon for me, really, which is disappointing at my home round. Looking at the times we were doing they’re not far off what I was doing two or three years ago. It’s been frustrating, of course, but I have a lot of faith and confidence in the team and Malaysia is a new track for everyone, so I’m looking forward to the next round.”

Michael van der Mark (Pata Honda World Supersport Team)
Race result: 1st Championship position: 1st
“It has been amazing because all weekend we were really fast and yesterday we took pole position in the wet. In the race my start was not really good and also in the first few laps I struggled with grip. Late on in the race, when I got my own pace, I was faster and faster and I caught the group in front. I passed them one at a time and slowly, but when I managed to pass them all I could go away. The last few laps were a nice fight with Jules Cluzel, although I made a few mistakes. In the last few corners I did not want to fall because the championship is very important but it was a nice battle. I am happy and thankful for the team because they worked really hard, especially after I had a silly crash in warm-up. My bike was very good in the race.”

Lorenzo Zanetti (Pata Honda World Supersport Team)
Race result: DNF Championship position: 5th
“I’m really disappointed and angry, but I know this is racing. I started really well and know that I had potential to fight for the win. I pushed to stay with the first group and had everything under control. I was waiting for the last three or four laps before I wanted to push but the bike broke before then. Everything was OK before then and the bike felt great and it’s important to be fighting for the win. But this is racing. I think I can fight at every race now, even if I like some tracks more than others. I’ve had two DNFs now and Mikey’s win today didn’t help the in championship but fighting for the win is important for my career.”

Jack Kennedy (CIA Insurance Honda)
Race result: 7th Championship position: 15th
“We started 18th off the grid and I had an OK start and made a good few places up. I was in the battle for about eighth to 12th but by the time I had got there the group at the front had just pulled a gap. I tried all race to bridge that but it just wasn’t happening. I was matching some of the times to the leaders but I just wasn’t quick enough to get to them. I was happy to be that consistent all race and match the times but we just needed a better qualifying position to be up there. The best points score and finish to date so let’s try and improve on this one.”

Raffaele De Rosa (CIA Insurance Honda)
Race result: 9th Championship position: 6th
“I am disappointed not to have qualified better because I think I could have run at the front and challenged for the podium. My qualifying crash also injured my left hand and that did not help in the race. I am so disappointed as we had the pace and the ability here – but now I am looking to the next round and will do my best there.”

Ratthapark Wilairot (Core PTR Honda)
Race result: 12th Championship position: 18th
"I made a good start and no problems to stay in the group near the front. In this race today the bike was improving I felt the set-up was improving and I could ride better and feel the tyres. But here I tried many lines but for this track I think it is not possible to try too many different lines. I made two mistakes and ran off the track then got back on. If I had done it only once I feel we could have finished top ten, because my pace was not so bad.”
