WSB Australia: Guintoli takes race two as Laverty challenge ended by mechanical

Sylvain Guintoli has won his first World Superbike race in exactly a year, after red flags brought a premature end to Eugene Laverty’s hopes of a double victory. Guintoli was part of a four way battle for the victory alongside Laverty, Tom Sykes and Loris Baz when the Northern Irishman’s engine dramatically let go, bringing out the red flags with seven...

Good to see which ever bike there on there in with a shout of winning races, aprilias, ducatis, kawasakis, suzukis all running at the front,Hondas won't be far away either,   going to be plenty of names on the winners list this year, to close to call the championship, I see no one running away with it though, well done Eugine, showed Aprilia abit of what there missing this year too, bet he'll of loved that!

Unlucky Laverty

 I was gutted for Laverty, he looked very strong in both races. I think he would have done the double if it wasn't for the engine failure! I think this could be Laverty's year, as long as the Suzuki doesn't make a habbit of breaking. 

Glad to see a good mix of manufacturers at the front though, going to make for some very good racing this year!

Mixed Fortunes

What a bag of mixed fortunes that was - I wonder if the Suzuki is at the height of it's development and is a bit fragile.    Guintoli continues with his consistency and consistency can win titles.    Excellent performance from Baz.

 It's shaping up to be a corker.

 MotoGP has 3 races every meeting, 4 when there is a rookies cup race as well.

 

 

Just a point mate.

Due to the rules Laverty's championship is over each engine had got to do 3 meetings or 6 races his remaining 7 engines now have another 5 races to cover,Suzuki have been turning the wick up on their motors while the others have been turning theirs down.

Over?

 I wouldn't say it was over, as long as another engine doesn't blow up he should be okay. I am sure all factories have plans in place for situations like this.

So disappointing

It was such a good race with all the top guys battling in one big group: Guintoli, Baz, Rea, Laverty, Giugliano, Melandri, Davies, Sykes and Haslam. Such a shame Lowes lost his head in both races, he definitely had the pace to be up there. But the big disappointment was the race ending prematurely, especially when it was lining up to be a great finish. Finally a major world championship has a big bunch of riders and manufacturers all capable of winning races. Can't wait until the next round... but until then, we still have the first round of MotoGP to enjoy.
