WorldSBK Jerez: Rea strikes back with sprint race win

Reigning WorldSBK king Jonathan Rea moved into second place in the championship table with a win in the Jerez sprint race this morning.

Rea took a lights-to-flag victory ahead of race-one winner Scott Redding with Michael van der Mark taking third after Yamaha team-mate Toprak Razgatlioglu’s R1 expired.

It is the team’s second technical failure in as many races as the Dutchman went out yesterday with a blown engine.


Loris Baz was once again the top Independent rider as the Frenchman claimed fourth on the grid for Race 2 ahead of Ducati's Chaz Davies in fifth and Tom Sykes (BMW Motorrad) bouncing back from issues in Race 1 to claim sixth on the grid for Race 2; although he did drop three places from his starting position.

Alex Lowes (Kawasaki) finished in seventh place with American rider Garrett Gerloff (GRT Yamaha) in eighth – the first time an American rider has been on the front three rows of the WorldSBK since Nicky Hayden since Buriram Race 2 in 2017. Leon Haslam claimed the final points-paying position in the Tissot Superpole Race.
