Superbikes at Donnington

26 May 2013

FASSI UK dealers & customers see Tom Sykes complete dream weekend with a double win.

As official sponsor FASSI welcomed 30 customers & dealers to a hot & sunny Donnington Park for the 5th round of the 2013 World Superbike Championship. 

Tom Sykes excelled as he claimed a double victory at Donington Park to move to within four points of the lead in the World Superbike Championship.

The Kawasaki rider enjoyed a flawless weekend claiming a pair of lights-to-flag wins as the first race of the day saw him produce a perfect performance from the front to move above Eugene Laverty into second in the overall standings.

The 27-year-old soon stamped his authority on race two, setting a new race lap record on lap four.

By the time Sylvain Guintoli had got past Laverty, the British rider had a two-second lead, and finished eight seconds ahead of Guintoli to become the first double British winner at Donington Park since Carl Fogarty in 1995.

Guintoli remains in front in the overall standings but is now only four points ahead of Sykes.

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.
