Aragon WorldSBK #2: Redding wins epic sprint-race scrap

Ducati’s Scott Redding bounced back from a crash yesterday to end Jonathan Rea’s unbeaten Superpole race streak this morning at the second Motorland Aragon race weekend.

Redding pushed past the series leader through turn 15 for the lead and 12 points but you couldn’t get a fag paper between the V4R and the ZX-10RR for most of the ten laps.

Behind the ever-changing fortunes for the overall championship lead Michael Ruben Rinaldi (Team GoEleven Ducati) posted his second podium of the weekend after his Saturday race win.


Behind the top three there was more action, as Alvaro Bautista (HRC Honda) finally held off the progressing Chaz Davies (Aruba.it Racing – Ducati) for fourth, with a still suffering Alex Lowes (Kawasaki Racing Team) dropping back to sixth after setting the fastest lap of the race.

Another tough day for Yamaha saw Toprak Razgatlioglu (Pata Yamaha WorldSBK Team) seventh, just ahead of Leon Haslam (HRC Honda).

Tom Sykes lost places but finished ninth, as Michael van der Mark (Pata Yamaha WorldSBK Team) rounded out the top ten.

Loris Baz and the Ten Kate Yamaha team are still trying to make the most of limited electronic availability but the Frenchman was ahead of GRT Yamaha’s Federico Caricasulo.

His team-mate Garrett Gerloff was next with Eugene Laverty and Max Schieb finishing the points scorers.

Marco Melandri had another disaster in 17th, one behind Xavi Fores.
