WSB: Rea wins Race Two with Ducati doubling-up behind

With the Portimao track now soaking wet from the downpour that began in the World Supersport race, the second run- now shortened to eighteen laps because of the conditions - looked to be a completely different prospect from that which saw Tom Sykes dominate race one earlier in the day. It was Rea – as he did in race one...

Again, another entertaining race

But I still can't get excited over WSBK. Great ride from Rea, and Giugliano also, and a entertaining battle between Davies, Lowes and Haslam, but I found myself begging for the race to end sooner. Even when Guintoli took out Melandri... absoloutely nothing. We need some bigger names in there I reckon; hopefully Hayden will come over next year and spice things up a bit. I was hoping Edwards would go to WSBK instead when he left Tech 3 in 2011, but maybe he couldn't resist riding for points on a good day in GP's over riding for podiums in WSBK. Maybe it was the money... who knows?

Its Rea you numpties!

 its about time MCN got some people who can actually proofread their content including this mess of an article above. Its Rea for goodness sake, how on earth can you mix up a three letter word!!?!

 

Anywho, well done to Rea. I still believe hes the most naturally talented rider on the WSBK grid, along with Alex Lowes.

Well ridden

by Rea, and a solid ride from the Ducati boys. Luckily not much damage done to Tom's points lead, but to finish so far down the field in the wet ???

Sykes thinks about the Championship rather than winning every race; I don't think it's anything to be concerned about. Had it been a race that decided the Championship, I think he would've been a lot faster. I could be wrong though, maybe he had some serious issues in Race 2.

 Where is Rea now in the title race? Is he second? You can see why Honda want to reward him with a MotoGP seat.

Oops!

I can tell you exactly what happened here... My daughters' middle name is Rae and autocorrect went to town.

I've fixed them all now.

Apologies.

Tom

is a little fragile as a wet weather racer however he has a wise head on his shoulders ... better to bring it home with some points than chuck it up the road trying to win in those conditions.  It's a somewhat unexciting and safe  strategy but one which will give him the best chance of retaining the title.
