Superbikes at Donington

FASSI UK customers & dealers watch brilliant double 1-2 for Sykes And Baz

As official sponsor FASSI welcomed 80 customers & dealers to Donington for the 5th round of the 2014 World Superbike Championship. 

Tom Sykes and his Kawasaki Racing Team partner Loris Baz proved too strong for their opponents at the Brit’s home round, with the reigning Champion winning both 23-lap races and Baz second in each. 

Two great wins from Sykes came in very different circumstances, with Tom way down in 11th place in race one for a time but fighting his way back in brilliant style to hold off Baz by 1.5 seconds at the flag. In race two Sykes had a slightly better start off his third row starting place, and pushed on to take the lead on lap 11 and eventually run clear to win by 3.6 seconds.

Sykes is now in the points lead with an impressive 26 point advantage over Jonathan Rea and Baz, who each have 159 points.  

Our customers were able to enjoy the race from the sponsors hospitality area and meet the riders in person on the pit walk between race 1 & 2.
