WorldSBK Misano 2019

The mid-season round 7 of WorldSBK Championship in Misano Adriatico (ITALY) was dominated in both race 1 and 2 by the british rider Jonathan REA (Kawasaki Racing Team). REA, who had won in the other italian round of Imola the previous month as well, stopped the championship leader Alvaro BAUTISTA who has collected 9 victories in the previous 11 races during the starting of the season.
In race 1, interrupted many times for heavy rain and then resulted in a red flag, REA preceeded on the podium Tom SYKES (BMW Motorrad Racing Team) and Alvaro BAUTISTA ( Racin Team Ducati). The other official Ducati rider, Chaz DAVIES finished in fourth position, behind his teammate as in the rest of the season. Yamaha rider Michael VAN DER MARK did not start due to an injury suffered on the friday’s free practice session; he has then missed the entire weekend.
Race 2 on sunday was dry and sunny, but no difference about the race result. REA concluded again in first position with a very tiny advantage (0.381) on second placed Toprak RAZGATLIOUGLU (Turkish Puccetti Racing) who took a very important podium. Leon HASLAM finished in third once again with a gap of 5.880 seconds behind his teammate. As in the previous day, Chaz DAVIES and Alvaro BAUTISTA had a very tough race: the first one concluded only 7th, while the latter 14th.
