Magny Cours WSB: Laverty sizzles to second

Gordon Ritchie, 03 October 2014 16:02

After confirming that he was heading to MotoGP in 2015 with the Aspar Honda team in 2015, Eugene Laverty (Voltcom Crescent Suzuki) found enough pace on the first day at Magny-Cours to finish second in the combined qualifying sheets, 0.272 seconds behind the ebullient Davide Giugliano (Ducati World Superbike). Championship challengers Sylvain Guintoli (Aprilia Racing) and Jonathan Rea (Pata Honda) ...

Guintoli playing a waiting game, but focused on PATA Honda switch

Gordon Ritchie, 01 October 2014 10:21

Aprilia’s number one man in the WSB title standings Sylvain Guintoli, has almost been forgotten in the maelstrom of other Aprilia news. With every passing day it appears less likely there will be an official Aprilia team for him to remain in next year so he has been forced to look at other options. “I have been speaking with almost ...

Summer break too far for Lowes

Gordon Ritchie, 13 July 2014 11:56

After Laguna Seca has been completed the SBK hoards will head back to Europe, with some of the teams heading to Portimao for a (now increasingly rare) testing opportunity on 21 and 22 July. Some others – Pata Honda and Voltcom Crescent Suzuki among them - will not. For Lowes, after Laguna the summer break is simply too long, especially ...

Guintoli ready to risk more

Gordon Ritchie, 13 July 2014 11:53

Sylvain Guintoli knew even before he got to Laguna Seca that he would have to go for it at this race and every other one, as Sykes was in an enviable championship position, so the prospect of Sykes taking more than his 38 points lead into the summer break is hard to bear pre-race. “It is hard enough now,” said ...

Riders Mystified By Laguna Schedule

Gordon Ritchie, 12 July 2014 19:50

The weekend schedule at Laguna Seca in 2013 featured a race on Saturday and one on Sunday, but in 2014 the WSB weekend featured two races on Sunday as per most rounds.
