    WSB Brno: Biaggi takes race two win

    By Tom Cambio -MCN
    10 July 2011 15:14

    Max Biaggi (Aprilia Alitalia) fought a close battle throughout race two at Brno with fellow countryman Marco Melandri (Yamaha World Superbike Team) before regaining the lead on the penultimate lap to take victory and deny Melandri a second win at the Czech circuit.
    Championship leader Carlos Checa (Althea Racing) rode consistently to secure his second podium finish, taking third place and finishing ahead of Michel Fabrizio (Team Suzuki Alstare) and Eugene Laverty who took fourth and fifth respectively.
    Ayrton Badovini again proved the pace of the satellite BMW Motorrad Italia bike, finishing in sixth ahead of Leon Haslam (BMW Motorrad Motorsport) in seventh.
    Tom Sykes (Kawasaki Racing Team) finished in fifteenth, whilst Alex Lowes and Leon Camier both crashed out of race two.

    Melandri, Biaggi and Checa are just a whole level ahead of the rest of the field, long gone are the times last year where there was a 7 man dice for the lead as the likes of Haslam, Rea and Haga are in poor bikes compared to the Checa's Ducati and the Aprilla. Leon Camier has been a complete failure in the Aprilla squad and he doesn't deserve a place in the best team in the paddock when he easier falls on finishes around 7th.

    World Superbike returns to normal as Checa takes provisional pole

    By Austin Lindberg -MCN
    World Superbikes

    Carlos Checa closed out Friday as the fastest man at Silverstone, clocking the fastest time in the afternoon’s World Superbike qualifying session.
    With less than 10 minutes gone from the session, Checa put in the quickest time of the weekend with a 2.06.4 and held that position for much of the session before putting his Althea Ducati at the top of the charts with a 2.05.477.
    Supersonic Racing Ducati’s Maxime Berger finished the session in second with a 2.05.870, and would have finished atop the session had Checa not pulled the pin with just minutes remaining in the session.
    Tom Sykes finished as the top Brit with a 2.05.899 aboard his Paul Bird Motorsport Kawasaki, and compatriot Leon Camier brought his Alitalia Aprilia home one place behind him in fourth with a 2.05.947.
    Rounding out the top five was John Hopkins, who lies second in the British Superbike championship classification. Hopkins, who led this morning’s free practise session, could only manage a time a half-second off of Checa’s pace with a 2.05.974.
    But a mix up with tyre allocation left Hopkins without the World Superbike spec front Pirelli, and was forced to use his BSB spec Pirelli, which doesn’t offer the same level of grip.
    Hopkins said: “We got stuck out on the front tyre we’ve used all year, the BSB tyre, because the new tyre wasn’t around. So we had to use the old front with the new rear and the new rear produces so much grip, the front was just pushing everywhere.”

    Hopkins secures maiden Superpole

    By Austin Lindberg -MCN
    World Superbikes

    John Hopkins took pole positions for Sunday’s World Superbike races from Silverstone after the Samsung Crescent Suzuki man put in a 2.04.041 in the third round of Superpole.
    Hopkins’ time broke last year’s circuit record set by Cal Crutchlow by 0.05 seconds, and it was enough despite a last-minute push from Yamaha’s Eugene Laverty, who finished second just 0.027 seconds behind Hopkins.
    Hopkins said: “I’m over the moon. I’m overwhelmed at the moment. It still hasn’t really sunk in that I’m on pole position in a World Superbike wildcard.
    “I just gave it everything I absolutely had in that final qualifying with that tyre.”

    Laverty said Hopkins deserved the pole because “he put in a hell of a lap”, but is happy with second and thinks he and his R1 have what it takes to run at the front in Sunday’s races.
    Laverty said: “The Yamaha was strong here last year with Cal (Crutchlow) so hopefully that’s a good omen for us. The bike works well and I won here last year so it should be a winning combination.”
    Alitalia Aprilia’s Leon Camier finished third with a 2.04.303, and said that he’s looking for an improvement before tomorrow’s race if he has a chance of fighting for what he calls a “really, really hard” race.
    Camier said: “Everyone seems to be able to do a couple of laps and then sort of drop off a little bit, but I know he’s been consistent.
    “I think we need to find a little something more for the race but I think it’s going to be a big fight for the podium and hopefully I can be there to be involved in the fight.”

    On the outside of the front row will be Althea Ducati’s Carlos Checa. The Spaniard ended up 0.321 seconds adrift of Hopkins, but says that his pace has been better than expected.
    With championship rivals Marco Melandri of Yamaha and Max Biaggi of Alitalia Aprilia in sixth and 11th respectively, Checa said he felt like he was in another series interviewing alongside Hopkins, Laverty, and Camier.
    Checa said: “We are quite satisfied compared to last year. So far, we are better than we expected.
    “It seems like I am racing another championship with these guys up here. I think it’s quite nice to see young riders and I think they have good talent that they’ve shown in the past. Here, there is something else that has enabled them to be competitive.”

    Checa cruises to victory in race one

    By Austin Lindberg -MCN
    World Superbikes


    Carlos Checa cruised to a race one victory in today’s World Superbike round from Silverstone, claiming Ducati’s 300th win in the class for the Althea team.

    Checa worked his way up from his fourth place on the grid before displacing Yamaha’s Eugene Laverty from the lead and winning by a margin of three seconds. But Checa was surprised with the result, saying that he expected Silverstone to be one of the toughest circuits of the season for him.

    Checa said: “We’ve always been competitive but we know there are going to be some tracks that give us trouble and we expected that Silverstone would be difficult to be in front. Honestly, before the race I knew it wouldn’t be easy to win and it wasn’t easy at all. I had a little gap to the others, but I didn’t know this was going to happen.

    “With Honda 500 I did their 100th victory, although I don’t remember so well because it was a long time ago. Then with Honda Superbike I did the 100th victory in America and now the 300th victory with Ducati. I didn’t expect it to be here, but it’s great to be apart of the history of Ducati.”

    Laverty held onto second place after a late charge from Alitalia Aprilia’s Leon Camier was halted with three laps to go after a problem with his RSV4’s ride-by-wire sensor.

    Laverty said: “Second place is enough for me today. It’s been a while since I’ve been on the podium, since I got the double victory at Monza. I didn’t want that to be a flash in the pan, I wanted to back it up with another brilliant finish here and second was all I could do today. Carlos had too much pace.”

    Laverty’s Yamaha teammate Marco Melandri took the final place on the podium after Camier’s problem. But Melandri was less pleased with the result after experiencing a tyre problem and losing time fighting with Noriyuki Haga and John Hopkins.

    Melandri said: “It’s been a very tough weekend for me, to get a podium is an awesome result. But I am a little bit disappointed because from the second lap I had big sliding and spinning on the left side of the tyre.

    I spent a little too much time with Hopkins and Haga. Every time I was trying to pass them, they pushed very hard to pass me back so we lost a lot of time.”

    Checa extends championship lead with double win

    By Austin Lindberg - MCN
    31 July 2011 17:43

    Carlos Checa did the double at today’s round of World Superbike action from Silverstone.

    The Althea Ducati rider moved past Yamaha’s Eugene Laverty early in the race and was able to slowly eek out a two-second gap over the Yamaha man. Checa was delighted to take maximum points at a circuit he prepared to struggle at before the World Superbike summer break.

    And in addition to winning Ducati’s 300th and 301st World Superbike races, today’s second race was Checa’s 100th in the class.

    Checa said: “It’s a perfect weekend for me. For us, honestly, we didn’t expect to win here because we struggled last year. But it didn’t come for free, we worked hard from the beginning.

    “I didn’t know that it was my 100th race in World Superbike, but the important thing is that I’m not 100 yet. I’m getting old, but I’m not 100 yet.”

    Laverty ended up second after slowly being left by Checa, but managed a two-second gap of his own ahead of the chasing pack of teammate Marco Melandri and Alitalia Aprilia’s Max Biaggi and Leon Camier.

    Laverty said: “We were a lot closer in the second one. I was able to stay with Carlos for a few laps but I really used the tyres to try to stay with him.

    “I enjoy the circuit, it suits my riding style. I won here last here and have been on the podium twice this year so it’s nice that this can be my home round.”

    Melandri won the fight for the final podium position, making it an identical podium to race one. Despite the cooler conditions in the afternoon that resulted in the race’s fastest lap being a second quicker, Melandri opted for a harder rear tyre than in the first race.

    But the Italian is looking for race wins, and said that he’s conceded the title to Checa and has his sights set on an assault next season.

    Melandri said: “The pace at the front was faster and I made a few mistakes trying to follow them so I lost my way to the front. It’s been a good weekend, but not like I want. I want to be more consistent and stronger.”

    “For me, the championship was already over because Carlos has a big lead so I just have to do my best race by race and if Carlos loses some points, it’ll be there for us.”

    Camier finished as the second Brit in fifth ahead of BMW’s Leon Haslam in eighth, BMW Italia’s James Toseland in 13th, and Samsung Crescent Suzuki’s Jon Kirkham in 15th,

    Polesitter John Hopkins faded to seventh after encountering tyre difficulties in the dying laps of the race after fighting desperately to hold onto the leading group. Fellow wildcard rider Alex Lowes retired from the race.

    Rea uses new ride-by-wire to take provisional pole position at Imola

    By Michael Guy - MCN
    23 September 2011


    Jonathan Rea found it hard hide his delight at securing provisional pole position after first qualifying at Imola today. Using the new ride-by-wire electronics system for the first time during a race weekend, Rea overhauled Carlos Checa in the final minutes to re-assert himself as a WSB front runner once again.
    Having tested the new electronics system in Misano last week, Rea was positive about its potential but his performance today exceeded both his and his Castrol Honda team’s expectations.
    Speaking to MCN, Re said: “I’m really happy. It just feels easier than it did before especially on corner entry. Before I had to work hard to settle the bike on the way into the turn before I could really enter the corner. But now once I’ve done my back shifts the bike is more stable and I can tip into the corner.”
    While Rea was clearly positive about the performance of the new electronics he also attributed his pace to the newly laid and higher grip tarmac that covers the majority of the historic Italian circuit:
    “The grip is definitely better and with grip it’s easy to mask any set-up of handling problems. But it’s still relative to everybody else because it’s the same for everyone and we’re still at the front.”
    Championship leader Carlos Checa made an impressive start to what will potentially be the most important weekend of his distinguished career. Checa leads Italian Marco Melandri by 74 points meaning that it is a genuine possibility that he could be crowned champion on Sunday.
    He said: “We did a good job today with the bike and the tyres. I feel strong at this track, especially last year, but with the new surface for this season the track has changed quite a bit – especially for the tyres. I am working on this and as always we have tyres that are fast will struggle for endurance and the longer lasting tyres are not so good for the lap time.”
    Leon Haslam put an impressive performance to secure third position onboard his BMW Motorrad S1000RR to finish third ahead of Alstare Suzuki’s Michel Fabrizio and Yamaha man Marco Melandri who hasn’t ridden the Imola circuit for ten years.
    Nurburgring race winner Tom Sykes secured sixth with Leon Camier 13th and Eugene Laverty down in 18th spot.

    Checa takes sixth pole of the season

    By Liam Marsden - MCN
    24 September


    Championship leader Carlos Checa has taken his sixth pole position of the season at Imola, setting a new lap record on the way.
    Checa beat Castrol Honda's Jonathan Rea to pole position by a tenth of a second, with Pata Aprilia rider Noriyuki Haga in third. The final rider on the front row is Kawasaki's Tom Sykes, fresh from his Nurburgring win.

    Rea takes race one win

    By MCN -
    25 September 2011

    Castrol Honda rider Jonathan Rea has taken his second World Superbike win of the season at Imola this afternoon.
    Rea took the lead on lap five, but had to hold off PATA Aprilia rider in the second half of the race, as the Japanese rider looked to take his first win onboard the Aprilia.
    Championship leader Carlos Checa finished third, nine seconds behind the leading pair. Checa had to wait until the final lap to steal third from Brit Tom Sykes. Factory Yamaha rider Eugene Laverty completed the top five.
    Checa has increased his championship lead to 82 points, after championship rival Marco Melandri finished in a lowly eighth.
    Brit Leon Haslam - who recently signed a new contract with the factory BMW squad, crashed out of sixth position early in the race.

    Checa wins race two as Rea retires

    By Liam Marsden - MCN


    Althea Ducati rider Carlos Checa moved to within a whisker of securing his first World Superbike championship with victory in race two at Imola after Jonathan Rea suffered a mechanical problem while leading the race.
    Checa leads championship rival Marco Melandri by 97 points going into the final two rounds, as Melandri finished sixth, despite running off track.
    Rea again dominated the race, moving to the front right from the start. Rea was leading by three seconds from Checa with five laps to go when he slowed and let Checa passed. Rea looked to then pick up the pace, but it was clear there was a problem with his Castrol Honda Fireblade, forcing the Irishman to retire.
    PATA Aprilia rider Noriyuki Haga took second place again after a poor start. Factory Aprilia rider Leon Camier took the final step on the podium - a great result for the Brit after he struggled in race one, finishing 15th.
    Eugene Laverty and Leon Haslam made it three Brits in the top five, finishing fourth and fifth respevtively.

    British Superbikes Final round : Phenomenal last lap...

    The final round of the British Superbikes was at Brands Hatch at the weekend, and the championship went down to the last race with only two points between Tommy Hill on the Yamaha and John Hopkins on the Suzuki. So who ever finished in front of the other would be champion, and what an awesome last lap it was.......:)

    Lots of off track interest at this round: Double world champion Troy Corser is retiring, Checa has been offered a huge sum of money to ride for BMW (Ducati state they cannot match the offer) and many riders without contracts for next season.

    [h=1]Checa wins fifteenth race of season [/h]By Tom Cambio - MCN
    16 October 2011

    2011 WSB champion Carlos Checa (Althea Racing) took his fifteenth race win of the season at Portimao, passing Sylvain Guintoli (Team Effenbert-Liberty Racing) with three laps remaining to take victory.
    Guintoli, who finished second, rode consistently throughout the race leading from the second lap where the Frenchman managed to pass Jonathan Rea (Castrol Honda) at turn one.
    Eugene Laverty (Yamaha World Superbike Team) had been running in fourth behind team mate Marco Melandri until he suffered a big tank slapper, managing to just hold on, but running off track and gifting Checa fourth. Laverty returned to the pits where his bike was examined for problems before returning to the track and finishing the race in nineteenth.
    At the mid-point in the race Checa upped his pace and passed Melandri to take third, before closing in on Rea, taking a tight line and moving into second. The Spaniard then closed in on Guintoli, taking the lead with three laps remaining.
    Jonathan Rea took the last step on the podium in third, whilst a resurgent ride from Max Biaggi (Aprilia Alitalia) saw the Italian move up from seventeenth on the grid to take fourth, passing Melandri who ran wide with four laps remaining and then Joan Lascorz (Kawasaki Racing Team), who took fifth, on the final lap.
    Melandri finished in sixth place, ahead of Maxime Berger (Supersonic Racing Team) who put in a strong performance to finish seventh and Tom Sykes (Kawasaki Racing Team) in eighth. BMW Motorrad Motorsport rider Leon Haslam and Jakub Smrz (Team Effebert-Liberty Racing) complete the top ten at the Portugese circuit.
