Results World Superbike-Supersport, Riviera Di Rimini, Misano


Jonathan Rea (Pata Honda World Superbike Team) and his team-mate Leon Haslam (Pata Honda World Superbike Team) had to ride hard at the seventh round of the FIM Superbike World Championship at Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli, scoring points but not finding suitable race set-ups to challenge for podium positions.

Intense action around the 4.226km circuit on the Adriatic coast of Italy saw Rea finish seventh and then fifth in the two 21-lap races, while Haslam had little good fortune on his side, with a technical issues that held him back in tenth in race one. A fall in race two, after encountering another issue, meant he had to get back on his bike to finish a more than creditable 12th.

Unable to compete for the wins this weekend, as he had done at some recent rounds, Rea is now fourth in the championship, 11 points from third and 13 points from second place. Haslam is tenth overall in the points.

The championship leader Tom Sykes (Kawasaki) won both Misano races with identical podiums bringing Loris Baz (Kawasaki) and Marco Melandri (Aprilia) two second and two third places respectively.

The Portimao circuit in Portugal is the venue for the eighth round of the Superbike series, with raceday on 6 July.

SECOND PLACE FOR BATTLING VAN DER MARK AT MISANO

Michael van der Mark (Pata Honda World Supersport Team) had to work his way forward to take second place at the seventh round of the FIM Supersport World Championship at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli. In doing so he maintained a strong lead over Misano race winner Jules Cluzel (MV Agusta) in the points with five rounds of the WSS championship left to run.

Mikey’ was on top form once he had got over a close call with another rider early in the race. That put him in fourth place at the end of lap three after a solid qualifying session placed him second on the grid.

It then took till lap eleven to pass both competitors in front and start the charge to get to fast starting race winner Jules Cluzel (MV Agusta). Whilst the lap times were fast enough there simply weren’t enough laps left to get into contention for another race win. Michael, who has won three races so far in 2014, dropped only a few points from his championship lead and now has 135 points to Cluzel’s 107. Patrick Jacobsen (Kawasaki) finished third.

In sixth place at his home circuit of Misano Lorenzo Zanetti (Pata Honda World Supersport Team) was unable to replicate his win at Imola earlier in the year, and he too had to fight hard at some points of the race to secure his final placing. Lorenzo heads to the next round in Portugal in fourth place overall, with 70 points.

The only other Honda rider in the top ten at Misano was Thai competitor Ratthapark Wilairot (Core PTR Honda) who placed his CBR600RR into ninth spot. He is now 11th in the championship.

Jack Kennedy (CIA Insurance Honda) experienced a very different feel from his machine in the race than the one he had in morning warm up and struggled to 12th place, taking some points to move to 15th place in the championship.

Raffaele De Rosa (CIA Insurance Honda) was on course for a podium fight but he fell at turn four and had to restart, scoring no points for 20th place, but remaining inside the top ten in the championship in ninth position overall. Valentin Debise (Com Plus SMS Racing) put his CBR600RR into 16th place in the Misano race, just missing a point.

Local non-finisher Marco Bussolotti (Team Lorini Honda) had two team-mates this weekend, Luca Marconi and Ferruccio Lamborghini, who finished 21st and 22nd respectively. Nacho Calero (CIA Insurance Honda) was the final rider in the classification, 23rd.

Portimao is the venue for the eighth round of the championship, which takes place on 6 July 2014.


HONDA RIDER COMMENTS:

Jonathan Rea (Pata Honda World Superbike Team)
Race result: 7th / 5th Championship position: 4th
“It’s been a disappointing weekend for me because it feels like we’ve made zero progress here. It was frustrating to be unable to pinpoint and fix the problems we’ve had and, while I don’t want to sound like a broken record, I feel a bit like one with my comments in the garage. We were able to salvage a top five in race two after some brave passing in the fast parts of the circuit but the group at the front was too far away. I can only ride the bike as well as it’s working, but I want to be able to race it again. We can’t just hope that the next round will be better; we need to evaluate what’s been going wrong and try to find some different solutions. It’s been frustrating for the whole team because I know we haven’t been able to get the best out of the CBR this weekend. I know that on the right day and in the right environment, the bike is capable of much, much more. The whole team feels like we’re under-achieving right now so we need to do our homework and fix things as quickly as possible.”

Leon Haslam (Pata Honda World Superbike Team)
Race result: 10th / 12th Championship position: 10th
“I got a bad start in race one and got stuck for a couple of laps before working my way up. By then, I was about four seconds off the group in front, which included Johnny [Rea] and I felt like I was holding my own. I had a few little issues but then, with three laps to go, the ECU seemed to just cut-out. I pulled off the track, re-booted it using the kill-switch and managed to get going again to finish tenth. In race two my start was better but I had a bit of a yo-yo race, losing time in some corners and making it up again in others. I was right on the group that went up to fifth but then had another issue that led to the crash. We need to assess what that problem was and go from there. I think we’ve made some progress this weekend and I was able to do some better lap times in the races but there’s more work to do before Portimao.”

Michael van der Mark (Pata Honda World Supersport Team)
Race result: 2nd Championship position: 1st
“The start wasn’t bad and I got third but then I got a good feeling to be there but Kenan ran wide at the first corner and in my opinion he should have took the escape road because we almost crashed, and then I lost another place to PJ. Jacobsen. The guys were riding so fast I had to push really hard and after I passed Kenan and Jacobsen I was pushing to get to Jules, but he rode a perfect race today. I was faster but after the mistake in the beginning I could not catch him any more than I did. We are still leading the championship by 28 points, so that is what we are looking for. The bike works great everywhere and I happy with the bike and team.”

Lorenzo Zanetti (Pata Honda World Supersport Team)
Race result: 6th Championship position: 4th
“I am a bit frustrated because I did not have a good start compared to some others and I lost some positions. I was held back by Marino a couple of times after that too. I was faster than him but he tried to keep me behind, for the championship points, because he is in front of me in the standings. I lost two seconds at first and then I had the same rhythm as Cluzel. I was a little faster than the riders just in front but I had too much of a gap to them. I tried too hard to rejoin the group fighting for the podium and I think I used up the tyres and so I lost one position. If I want to fight for the championship I need to have a better rhythm in qualifying, also in the race and get on the podium. I made some points up on Coghlan and Marino in the championship, so that was OK.”

Raffaele De Rosa (CIA Insurance Honda)
Race result: 20th Championship position: 9th
“I am gutted to have crashed out when a good result was possible. We will take motivation that my lap times were good and we now know we can compete at the front in the races to come.”

Ratthapark Wilairot (Core PTR Honda)
Race result: 9th Championship position: 11th
"Ninth is OK but we expected a better result after qualifying so well. It is another top 10 finish though, so that’s good, and we have plenty of positives from this weekend to take to the next round at Portimao.”

Jack Kennedy (CIA Insurance Honda)
Race result: 12th Championship position: 15th
“In the race the bike just did not feel the same as it did in warm-up and I felt I had no grip whatsoever. I could not even match the times I did in warm-up, when it all felt easy and good. It felt like a totally different bike. We had an issue with the clutch as well, as it was pushing me on into corners, which made it difficult coming out of them as well. A really difficult race and it was disappointing because of all the progress we had made coming up to the race. I will try to keep my chin up, but it is hard.”
