Second Superbike race

Tom Sykes makes the holeshot again in front of front row neighbors Leon Haslam and Davide Giugliano. Max Biaggi rounded Jonathan Rea on the outside and took fourth place out of the Variante del Parco. But the Roman Emperor widens and loses three places.

Rea dives under the Ducati n ° 7 on the first lap and sets off in pursuit of the leading duo who are already several lengths away! Sylvain Guintoli is 8th behind Max Biaggi. Randy de Puniet is in 19th place, Christophe Ponsson in 21st.

Wearing the same rear tire as all his little comrades – he had chosen a harder tire in the first heat – Jonathan Rea posted the fastest lap in the race in his third loop and hit Giugliano and Sykes. Davies and Haslam can’t keep pace with Ninja # 65. Torres and Biaggi are slightly behind.

Giugliano shows the tip of his fairing to Sykes at the very start of the fourth lap but fails to place a real attack. Rea is himself in the wheel of the No.34 Ducati, and Tom knows it: his team put two "+ O’s" on his panel !

Davide Giugliano shifts after several straights but cannot do the brakes on "Major Tom". The Italian finally blew the bolt of the n ° 66 Kawasaki in the Variante del Parco sequence at the start of the 7th lap. A U-turn later, Rea brakes Sykes on the big Quercia hairpin..

In the next round however, “Johnny” widens considerably in the double right Rio! Sykes takes advantage of this exceptional error by the leader of the championship to recover third place. Both Kawasaki lose contact with Giugliano and are joined by compatriots Davies and Haslam !

Two seconds behind Leon’s # 91 Aprilia, Jordi and Max’s other two RSV4s are still fighting for sixth place. Michele Pirro occupies a solitary 8th place at the helm of the third official Panigale. Sylvain Guintoli finds himself in a fight against Ayrton Badovini and Michael van den Mark, as in the first round !

Rea reproduces his attack on Sykes in Quercia on the 10th turn. Ninja # 65 is less than a second behind leader Giugliano as the second half of the race begins … This time "Major Tom" wins and is soon joined by Davies and Haslam.

In four laps, Davide Giugliano’s strong lead was reduced to a few meters by Jonathan Rea. Two seconds behind, the clever Leon Haslam took advantage of Davies’ attack on Sykes to jump from fifth to third place in the standings! Sykes is unable to retaliate.

Six laps from the end, Rea is in Giugliano’s rear wheel, dislocates the Italian on the return straight and passes him through the break in Curvone! The two men then passed Imre Toth: the Hungarian driver completed two laps less than the leaders on his BMW…

At the top of the podium, "Johnny" gradually moves away from Davide who can no longer hope to afford, in front of his family, his first World Superbike victory aboard the Panigale R. Leon Haslam must still be wary of Chaz Davies , half a second faster than him in the 19th lap…

Less than seven seconds behind the leader, rookie Torres and two-time champion Biaggi continue to fight for sixth place, just behind Sykes. But Jordi makes a mistake on the last lap and lets Max slip away to a new sixth place.

Second in the first round this morning, Jonathan Rea improved his result in the second round! "Johnny" wins his eleventh victory of the year and solidifies his lead in the championship against Sykes, fifth in this race: the Ninja n ° 65 totals 375 points against 242 for the n ° 66.

Absent during the first four rounds of the championship, Davide Giugliano won a third podium and climbed to 7th place in the provisional (106). Leon Haslam completes the second WSBK podium of the day and climbs 16 points behind Sykes. Davies is also getting closer to 2nd place (at 29 points).
