With the shift to a 10:30 start, World Superbike now has to deal with colder temperatures in the mornings. Last year, the noon start meant the race was held at 22ºC compared to today's 16ºC, meaning tyres would play a big part and that settings from the first race would be invalid by the second.
Press releases from the series organizer and the World Supersport and World Superbike teams after Sunday's races at Aragon:
As the riders lined up for the warmer second race, they did so on the softer tyre, all apart from Tom Sykes who stuck with the harder rear.
