Results World Superbike, Laguna Seca, USA


REA MOVES UP RIDER RANKINGS AFTER LATEST PODIUM SUCCESS

Jonathan Rea (Pata Honda World Superbike Team) moved up to third place in the overall championship standings at round nine of the FIM Superbike World Championship at Laguna Seca in the USA, thanks to a sixth and then a third place finish on a long and frequently interrupted raceday.

Rea’s team-mate Leon Haslam (Pata Honda World Superbike Team) secured good points scores on his CBR1000RR SP Fireblade to take a seventh place in the 25-lap race one and then record the same result in an eventual seven lap second race.

Rea had started ninth off the grid after a mistake on his Superpole qualifying lap on Saturday, and he had to work hard to try and get close to the leaders. Haslam had qualified in the same seventh place he finished each race in and is now tenth in the championship overall.

In race one Rea and Haslam ended the first lap in fifth and sixth places, respectively, and Haslam would get as high as fourth before eventually ending up in seventh place. Rea, however, had an eventful race, running off track on lap six to drop from fifth place to tenth, and having to work hard to claw back positions. He had to overtake his team-mate Haslam twice in the same event to finish three seconds ahead in sixth place.

The second race would be started no less than three times, with the first attempt at the full 25-laps stopped after a crash left a machine and a rider in a dangerous place. A short seven lap race was called under the quick restart procedures but again another fall brought out the red flags. The race re-started again for another seven lap dash and reached completion this time with Rea in third place, for his seventh podium of the season. On his first visit to Laguna Seca this was as much as Rea could have realistically hoped for after his bad luck in qualifying.

Leon found grip issues that held him back in the seven lap second race but still scored valuable points as both he and Rea now head off to compete in the prestigious Suzuka 8-Hour race in Japan.

After a very long summer break the championship will reconvene, alongside the usual Supersport World Championship and other support series, at Jerez de la Frontera in Spain with raceday on September 7th.

HONDA RIDER COMMENTS:

Jonathan Rea (Pata Honda World Superbike Team)
Race result: 6th / 3rd Championship position: 3rd
“I did the best I could today and my guys gave me a good bike to battle with and unfortunately in a battle situation I find it hard to pass but my pace is good on my own. My pace at the end of race one was pretty good to be honest and we have done a lot of good work here. In race one I got stuck behind some riders at the beginning when my pace should have been with the front group but when I got some space with Davide Giugliano he made a very good first lap and then I made a silly mistake near the beginning, braked too hard, locked the front, had to release the brake and ran on. From then on it was a case of coming back through and picking off the riders. I’m excited to leave here with a podium in race two, which almost feels better than my race win last week in Portugal. The track here is unbelievable. It is such a unique place that presents loads and loads of challenges. I’m excited to go into the summer break and come back strong for the last part of the year.”

Leon Haslam (Pata Honda World Superbike Team)
Race result: 7th / 7th Championship position: 10th
“In race one I felt pretty good. I got a good start but really struggled with front grip from lap one. I was hanging in there for a top five finish but in the last six or seven laps my pace dropped off quite a lot as I was really struggling with the front grip. In race two we didn’t change anything but the front grip came back and it was really good, but we struggled more with rear grip. On the three starts in race two the grip got worse and worse and I was over a second slower than I had been on a 20-lap tyre yesterday. We need to analyse why because the bike was the same and the boys have worked really well this weekend and we’ve been making good progress, especially on old tyres. To be that slow on new tyres in those re-starts was not what we wanted.”
