2014 Jerez World Supersport Race Results: Potential Title Fight

The World Supersport race was a fight for a potential title over nineteen laps with the fastest non-contender relegated to a pit lane start.

The three contenders for the title, Michael Van Der Mark, Jules Cluzel and Florian Marino lined up in first, third and tenth on the grid, but this didn't matter as the start put Van Der Mark in seventh after a few corners while Marino led with Cluzel spearing through to fourth.

While Kenan Sofuoglu was setting fastest laps at the back of the field, Florian Marino was joined by Jules Cluzel and Michael van der Mark by the seventh lap, wasting no time in turning the race at the front a fight to keep the championship alive. PJ Jacobsen and Jack Kennedy were right behind the front three, keeping the fight alive.

At the midway point, the fight between the top three resembled a last lap scrap and it didn't let off until the penultimate lap.

After an uncountable number of overtakes, from the sensible to the three-wide sublime, Jules Cluzel pushed past Michael van der Mark for second place, but saw an opportunity to pass Florian Marino as well, but it was an impossible corner and he lost front grip, forcing Marino to avoid him as van der Mark met no resistance and finally had a gap to manage. PJ Jacobsen followed van der Mark through and kept Florian Marino behind him.

Michael van der Mark won the race and the title, succeeding Sam Lowes as 2014 World Superbike champion.

PJ Jacobsen took his second podium of the season and Florian Marino passed Jules Cluzel for second place in the championship. Jack Kennedy finished a convincing fourth.

2014 Jerez World Superbike Race One: Crashes And Overtakes And Duels Oh My

Race Report follows.

As the lights went out, Sykes got the jump on the field, but by the first corner, he was back in sixth place after nearly clipping his teammate Loris Baz and Davide Giugliano. Sylvain Guintoli and Loris Baz were joined by a hard-charging Alex Lowes at the front and by the end of the first lap, Lowes pushed past Baz to second place, but Baz got back past Lowes on the next lap.

On the fourth lap, Loris Baz took the lead from Sylvain Guintoli, ahead of furious fighting behind him. Alex Lowes kept in front of the Ducatis of Chaz Davies and Davide Giugliano, while the world champion Tom Sykes floundered in seventh place, behind Marco Melandri.

The Ducatis settled into a pace and a ragged Davide Giugliano pushed past Alex Lowes and was shortly followed by a smooth Chaz Davies and an aggressive Marco Melandri, and Lowes's troubles were added to when Jonathan Rea caught and passed him on the seventh lap, pushing him wide and effectively ending his run at the front.

On the eighth lap, Sylvain Guintoli took the lead from Loris Baz as the front group of six riders were still within a couple of seconds of the lead and Marco Melandri started his charge. Tom Sykes nearly ran into the back of Jonathan Rea but avoided the gravel and returned to a fight with Leon Haslam in eight.

As Marco Melandri caught Loris Baz, having scythed his way through to third place, Davide Giugliano predictably crashed out, making the gap between the front three and Chaz Davies one and a half seconds. with eight laps to go. On lap fourteen, Melandri made his move on Baz, with a typical stabbing lunge using his ability to hold a tighter line on the front tyre. Baz was committed to his own line and as Melandri went wide at the apex, Baz caught his front brake on Melandri's rear tyre and slid his Kawasaki into the gravel trap and had to abandon it as it caught on fire.

Aprilias at the front, it was only a matter of time until Melandri passed Guintoli, ending the discussion on whether or not there are team orders, for the lead and promptly gained a 1.6 second lead with two laps to go, but Melandri miscalculated the number of laps and nearly gave up his lead as he thought he was on his last lap, but he had enough of a lead not for his mistake to cost him the win.

Marco Melandri won the race ahead of Sylvain Guintoli and Chaz Davies, with Tom Sykes recovered from a terrible race to fifth behind Jonathan Rea, but he conceded nine points in the title chase to Guintoli.

2014 Jerez World Superbike Saturday Roundup: Expect Overtaking

The rulebook was brought out for an engine too many in World Supersport and a qualifying record was broken by the entire front row in World Superbike.

Loris Baz set a pole position that even his estranged Kawasaki teammate Tom Sykes couldn't beat. The first sector of his fast lap was not as quick as he felt he could have gone as he wasn't sure of the grip, but as the lap went on, he got quicker, until he put in the fastest time of the session in the fourth and last sector, a sector that, like the second sector suited the Aprilias and Baz.

Davide Giugliano is on a Ducati that looks like the summer break improved. His front-row performance, sandwiched by Kawasakis, will put him in good stead for the races tomorrow, but it doesn't look like this will be the weekend that the Panigale gets its first elusive victory, especially if Chaz Davies in seventh position can't get a good start through the front two rows.

On the second row, Marco Melandri was hampered by Sylvain Barrier crashing in front of him, and his qualifying throughout the weekend has been consistently quick. Sylvain Guintoli is fighting for the title, unlike Melandri, but it isn't a certainty that Melandri will help him fight for the title. Jerez isn't a difficult track to overtake at, and with the Aprilias and Kawasakis, and to be honest the other bikes too, all having areas of the track they are better at, as long as nobody is given a free gift of a breakaway, the battle for the podium could well be undecided until the end.

Eugene Laverty in sixth place could also be taking part in the podium fight, and, unlike his teammate Alex Lowes, Laverty is confident in the grip at higher temperatures. If he doesn't do well in the cooler morning, he could still be in with a shout in the warmer second race. Lowes, ninth on there grid, was the second crasher in Superpole 2.

The Hondas had new engine parts for this weekend, but Jonathan Rea wasn't able to exploit them as well as Leon Haslam who sat in eight place, and he sat a second off the pace in tenth. Rea will likely race with the older engine spec, as he knows how that works. Morning warmup will show if this is the right move.

In World Supersport, Kenan Sofuoglu will be released from pit lane ten seconds after the lights go out. Changing teams meant his engine allocation was used up, and he therefore gets a penalty. With Jules Cluzel in tenth place, it's up to Florian Marino in fourth place, promoted to the front row thanks to Sofuoglu's engine infraction, to hold off pole-sitter Michael van der Mark and stop him from taking the title on Sunday.

This is an unlikely prospect, but we should be rewarded with Kenan Sofuoglu carving through the pack in his aggressive style as he tries to earn a podium place from the pit lane, an all together possible prospect.

Jerez's easy overtaking should reward us with close racing in both series, and maybe a new champion will be crowned.

2014 Jerez World Supersport QP Results: Rule 1.21.20

A team that uses more than the allocated number of engines during the Championship will receive a penalty as per rule 1.21.20 below.

Kenan Sofuoglu got the second-quickest time in qualifying, but he will not be taking his place on the grid as his new team has commited an engine infraction, details of which will be shared once we have them. Relinquishing the place puts Lorenzo Zanetti in second place behind teammate and championship leader Michael van der Mark. Florian Marino gets promoted to the front row.

The rule that puts Sofuoglu in the pitlane for the race start is as follows:

1.21.20 Penalties for infringement of Engine durability articles:
- Infringement before the race: the rider will start the race from the pit lane 10 seconds after the green light is on at the pit lane exit (2 races in a row for the Superbike class).
- Infringement during the race: ride through.

2014 Jerez World Superbike Superpole Results: Surprises To The End

Superpole One took place under cooler conditions than yesterday's afternoon session.

Leon Haslam and David Salom were the top two after the first five minutes and Haslam just kept increasing the pace, as you'd expect on a non-Evo bike. Alessandro Andreozzi had the second spot, the last spot that could promote you to Superpole two, at the halfway mark, but the qualifying tyres turned up for the second half.

David Salom used his good tyre to take the top spot from Leon Haslam but the timing screen lit up with potential faster laps and Haslam took the top spot only to be relegated by Sylvain Barrier on an Evo BMW.

In Superpole Two, Leon Haslam, having been promoted from the first session, set the pace lap of 1'41.338 on a race tyre, ahead of Davide Giugliano and Eugene Laverty.

Sylvain Guintoli led the charge of the qualifying tyres, with a 1'40.877, but Davide Giugliano put a blistering lap in before charging into the gravel trap at the end of the straight. Loris Baz looked like grabbing a front row start but tied together a tidy last sector that gave him a pole position that even Tom Sykes couldn't take off him, in spite of being quicker for the first three sectors.

The front row will be Loris Baz, Davide Giugliano and Tom Sykes, with Marco Melandri, Sylvain Guintoli and Eugene Laverty on the second. Baz set the outright fastest lap on his way to his second pole position, with a 1'40.298, three tenths quicker than Eugene Laverty's qualifying lap from 2013.

2014 Jerez World Superbike FP3 Results: Melandri And Giugliano Quickest

Marco Melandri was once again quickest in the colder morning session, along with Davide Giugliano and a surprising Toni Elias. None of the Evo bikes made it through to the second Superpole session, with David Salom missing out by a quarter of a second. Luca Scassa didn't record a laptime, but his time from FP1 is within 107% of Melandri's provisional pole time.

2014 Jerez World Superbike Friday Roundup: One Team, One Factory, One Track

After seven weeks of absence, World Superbike is back. In the interim period, we've lost one team, one factory and one round, and the silly season rumour mill has started back up.

As mentioned here, Mahi racing have given up on racing, with Fabien Foret walking away from World Superbike and Kenan Sofuoglu moving to San Carlo Puccetti Racing for the remainder of the season. Sofuoglu was already ruled out of the title when the South African round was cancelled, leaving only 75 points up for grabs when he was 77 behind Michael van der Mark. Foret isn't the only rider not to be on the entry list, as Bimota have been suspended for not making enough bikes, leaving both Christian Iddon and Ayrton Badovini without a ride until Bimota make 125 bikes.

Loris Baz was quickest today, mastering the warmer temperatures in the afternoon's session, but all ten of the fastest riders were within four tenths of a second of his time, showing that qualifying will be a close affair. Alessandro Andreozzi, the fastest of the Evo bikes, was 1.3 seconds off the pole pace.

The championship has only 150 points left over three rounds, which leaves Tom Sykes (325 points), Sylvain Guintoli (281 points), Jonathan Rea (261 points), Loris Baz (253 points) and Marco Melandri (217 points) mathematically able to win the title.

World Supersport has 75 points left, with Michael van der Mark, (160 points), Jules Cluzel (107 points) and Florian Marino (93 points) still in the running, but Van der Mark, quickest in both sessions today, could tie up the title on Sunday by finishing ahead of Cluzel and Marino.

2014 Jerez World Superbike FP2 Results: Baz Sets The Pace

Marco Melandri's time from the morning session stood for most of the session as the day's best time, but Loris Baz, the only rider able to better Melandri's lap, was able to snatch the top spot in the last ten minutes.
