Third consecutive Pole Position for Sykes at Misano

Misano (Italy), Saturday 21 June 2014 – After another tense but exciting Tissot-Superpole, Tom Sykes (Kawasaki Racing Team) will start tomorrow’s two 21 lap races at the Misano World Circuit after getting the better of Davide Giugliano (Ducati Superbike Team) and Sylvain Guintoli (Aprilia Racing Team), who will join him on the front row.Today’s pole position is the 21st of Sykes’ WSBK career, with the Englishman now tied in third place with Carl Fogarty for the most pole positions scored in the series.

Tom Sykes: “The support from the Italian fans has been fantastic as always. I have been happy with my pace over race distance since the start but I knew it was over one lap that I really needed to attack the circuit. My crew guys were able to adapt the bike to take the best out of the qualifying tyre. I was able to move the bike from one side of the track to the other side of the track and hit each apex as I wanted to. We I think we have done a fantastic job. To take the circuit record from one of my racing heroes, and a very, very talented rider like Troy Corser is a very proud moment for me.”

Behind the top three, row two tomorrow will see Loris Baz (Kawasaki Racing Team), Marco Melandri (Aprilia Racing Team) and Toni Elias (Red Devils Roma Aprilia), with Chaz Davies (Ducati Superbike Team), Jonathan Rea (Pata Honda World Superbike Team) and Eugene Laverty… (read more)

Chaz Davies:“I didn’t do a bad lap on the qualifier but it wasn’t great either. I had a little vibration at the rear while braking which didn’t allow me to hold the line the line that I wanted, affecting the grip, and then I also made a small mistake in sector 1. I wasn’t able to get the best out of the qualifier, and am a little frustrated to be on the third row to be honest. Saying that, I’ve come through before and I think we have good pace so we’ll see what we can do tomorrow. I hope it’s not too hot though as that was a problem for us in Malaysia.”
