Jerez WSB Results (All 3 Races)

Points leader Alvaro Bautista (Ducati) dominated WSB Race 1 at Jerez last Saturday, and also won the 10 lap Superpole race before crashing out of Race 2 on Sunday.

The podium on Saturday saw Michael van der Mark (Yamaha) and Marco Melandri (Yamaha) finish second and third behind Bautista. Those two also filled out the podium for the Superpole race.

At the final corner of Race 1, Jonathan Rea (Kawasaki) was involved in an incident that resulted in the crash of Alex Lowes (Yamaha). Although Rea crossed the line in third, stewards eventually ruled the incident was Rea’s fault, and he was demoted to fourth place in Race 1. He was also required to start the Superpole race at the back of the grid.

After Bautista’s crash, Race 2 saw van der Mark win a battle against Jonathan Rea to take the win, with Rea second and Toprak Razgatlioglu (Kawasaki) finishing third.

Bautista continues to enjoy a large points lead in the championship. You will find full results for Race 1 here,  the Superpole race here and Race 2 here. For additional details and points, visit the official WSB site.

    I feel the other way. I watch MotoGp and SBK. Past few years it has been the MM show with a few others now and then winning. In SBK it has been the Rea show with a few others now and then winning. Both series are very similar. I enjoy SBK much more because the “other bikes” are much closer performance wise, and there has been some great passing/mixing it up between places 3-9ish. This year other than AB, 2-9 has been extremely tight. Moto GP only gets good fights on the smaller tracks like assen. That is because that track does not have a huge straight where to power gap between factory and priveteer teams becomes so glaring. I always hope for rain on MotoGps just because it is the great equalizer.

    If there were comments it would just be an argument over whether it was Ducati cheating or Bautista’s riding that is the reason for him winning.

    Ok, I can’t help myself….zero comments so far. Is WSB that uninspiring? And actually, I don’t have a real comment either.

      Still raining here…

      I’m a GP fan. For whatever reason, I never could really commit to WSBK. It just didn’t have the same spark as MotoGP. That and WSBK has been incredibly dull for years now which makes it that much harder to get into. I’ve tried.
