REA TAKES FOUR OF A KIND CHAMPIONSHIP WIN IN WSBK

Jonathan Rea (KRT) secured a famous fourth FIM Superbike World Championship title at Magny Cours today by winning his 13thrace of the season on his Ninja ZX-10RR. Rea is the second rider to have won four WorldSBK titles, but the only rider to have won four in succession. Tom Sykes (KRT) was a strong second in the 21-lap race, having earlier set a new track record while earning his 47th career Superpole win.

With Sykes and Rea 1-2 after Superpole, and both well under the existing lap record, the KRT duo took the race to their competitors from the startline. Rea passed Sykes early in the race, into the Estoril corner, and he ran up front from then on, sometimes at lap record pace. Rea set a 1’37.152 on his eighth tour of the 4.411km circuit to score his new lap record.

Rea’s win gave him 130 podiums in WorldSBK, bringing him level to the all time record, which he now shares with Troy Corser.

On the slowdown lap Rea celebrated his championship win with a game of cards against three of his own ‘alter egos’, wearing his racing suits and crash helmets representing each of Rea’s championship winning season with KRT, from 2015 onward.

Sykes, who has now recovered well from a training injury in the long summer break, pushed as hard as he could to stay in contention with Rea. He had to settle for second place after almost losing the front more than once, but recorded his first podium since Brno in July.

In the current championship points, Rea has 445 points, Chaz Davies 315, Michael van der Mark 293 and Sykes 260. One more race remains at Magny Cours, on Sunday the 30th of September.

Toprak Razgatlioglu (Kawasaki Puccetti Racing) was eighth today, Leandro Mercado (Orelac Racing VerdNatura Kawasaki) 14th, Roman Ramos (Team GoEleven Kawasaki) 15th and Jeremy Guarnoni (Team Pedercini Racing Kawasaki) 17th.

Jonathan Rea, stated: “It is absolutely incredible to win four. Sometimes even after winning back-to-back championships, or three in a row I have to say it is hard to find words to speak about what you have just done. It is like we are riding the wave now with our Ninja ZX-10RR, with incredible people around me. Whilst I always dreamed of being in this position I never thought it to was realistic. It was so fitting that Guim, the team manager, allowed my dad to come and collect the team award on the podium. I got really choked up when he came up because it just reminded me of growing up in Northern Ireland and travelling all round with my parents to motocross races. Then getting my first pro ride in roadracing, and my parents letting go. But they have always had my back. So that was super-nice. Pere and my team gave me a great bike this weekend and the target was clear. We have been in this position before, so there was no kind of nervousness or anxiety around, it was really positive energy. On track Fabien has been analysing what we can do and the team worked super-hard all weekend to get the best out of the bike when the tyre was dropping. In the hot conditions, at the end of the race, that is what we worked towards today. The feeling with the bike just kept coming and I was able to knock it off on the last lap and take it all in. I was aware of the crowd there and what I was about to achieve so that last lap there I thought about winning the championship. It is incredible, and incredible journey.”

Tom Sykes, stated: “Not a bad day but I am slightly disappointed that we suffered a little bit during the race. I settled into a good rhythm but when I wanted to attack, we missed it. I have spoken to the boys and I think we know what it is. I certainly enjoyed that race. When I tried to push I lost the front a couple of times. I am happy with the way the race went today, with this in mind. I am excited and motivated for tomorrow. I think we can improve our set-up a little bit. We need to start from the third row so it is all about a little bit of aggression. Today is a day for Jonathan Rea. He has had four fantastic years, kind of flawless years, and he has pushed very hard and made a very good job. Congratulations to him, his family and his side of the garage. Tomorrow we will have a go and try to win.”

LIMITED EDITION MV AGUSTA DRAGSTER 800 RR PIRELLI

The collaboration between Pirelli and MV Agusta continues. The two Italian companies stand out for their industrial history - appreciated all over the world for their shared values - such as their ‘Made in Italy’ design and the strong association with motorsport. The result of this synergy is the latest limited edition jewel created by MV Agusta and Pirelli Design, the "Dragster 800 RR PIRELLI", which was presented in a world premiere on Saturday, September 22 at the inauguration of the new P ZERO™ World of Monte Carlo.

A streetfighter's look with a powerful three-cylinder heart, the MV Agusta Dragster 800 RR is the technical base for the development of this version. It is a perfect blend of raw power, technology and design, while super compact, aggressive and stunningly good looking. The design of the “Dragster 800 RR PIRELLI” takes no prisoners - it is emotion in its purest form. The weight distribution, the refined chassis and suspension as well as its unique three-cylinder character are the main characteristics of a machine that was created for the most demanding riding enthusiasts.

For the first time Pirelli Design, born as an incubator of high-end projects with the aim of enhancing technological know-how, high performance standards and the unique glamour inherent in the Pirelli brand not only personalizes the look of the bike containing two different color combinations - the first more gritty black and yellow, the second most elegant white and blue - but has also taken care to enhance functional aspects of the bike. In fact, the tank slider and the fairing are made of rubber specially formulated by Pirelli’s Research and Development department to ensure superior resistance to scratches and rubbing to which these items are subject, as well as to atmospheric and chemical agents, such as the fuel. Both rubber elements are recognizable thanks to the iconic "flash" symbol that distinguishes the tyres of the DIABLO™ range, including the DIABLO™ Supercorsa SP that equip this model in 120/70 ZR17 front and 200/55 ZR17 rear with a 6" rim.

The seat was created ad hoc by the Castiglioni Research Centre to make this creation even more exclusive. It stands out for its double texture with contrasting stitching and for the distinctive "flash" of the DIABLO™ embroidered to embellish the tail unit signed by Pirelli Design. Particularly refined is also the finish of the exhaust silencer terminals, obtained through the application of a special ceramic-based paint, resistant to very high temperatures.

The colors conceived by specialists from the Castiglioni Research Centre and by Pirelli Design aim to enhance the lines of the "Dragster 800 RR PIRELLI". To underline this exclusive partnership, the first proposal includes a matte black base, with glossy inserts painted in yellow to recapture the Pirelli institutional colors. A yellow logo is also for the Pirelli brand on the sides of the tank, as well as for the DIABLO™ logo, which identifies the range of high-performance Pirelli tyres. The second color is centered on a glossy white base with blue inserts.

To unequivocally identify the bike as a result of the collaboration between MV Agusta and Pirelli, it is possible to purchase, as an exclusive option, DIABLO™ Supercorsa SP tyres with colored sides, respectively with yellow or blue stripes, depending on the version to which they are combined.

The “Dragster 800 RR PIRELLI”, which already happened for the Brutale 800 RR PIRELLI, will go into production and be sold in a limited edition, thanks to a separate license agreement between Pirelli and MV Agusta.

WIN Like A Girl - Kawasaki's Ana Carrasco

Ana Carrasco (DS Junior Team Kawasaki) became the first female winner of a full FIM World Championship road-racing category when she finished just one single point ahead of her closest rival in the WorldSSP300 championship race at Magny Cours.

Starting in a lowly 25th position on the grid Carrasco was involved in a fight for 20th place for much of the race but she made progress to 19th spot. In the closing laps she moved to a 13th place that would be enough to give her a one-point lead over Mika Perez (Kawasaki ParkinGO Team) in the final points table.

Perez was in a position to win the championship himself on the last sector of the final lap but his race leading position was taken from him with two corners to go, and his 20 points were not quite enough to give him the crown.

Carrasco was unaware that she had won the championship on her slowdown lap almost until her team stopped her for a trackside celebration, with her championship-winning T-shirt having the phrase 'Ride Like A Girl' emblazoned on the front. In her post-race interview Carrasco dedicated her championship win to the late Moto2 rider Luis Salom, who was a friend of Ana’s and the cousin of David Salom, her team manager.

In another astonishingly close and battling WorldSSP300 race, Scott Deroue (Motoport Kawasaki) was also in contention for both the race and title wins until he was forced out with a technical issue.

Perez and Deroue battled it out for the championship up front but when Deroue suddenly slowed with problems changing gear, Perez was in the lead. He was then the driving seat for the championship itself until Daniel Valle ambushed him in the final two turns. Perez lost out on the title by just 0.168 seconds, in a race that was so close that Carrasco, in 13th place, was only 2.468 seconds behind the race winner.

Kawasaki wrapped up the championship at the previous round, and finally ended up with a 61-point advantage at the end of the eight round championship.

Nick Kalinin (GP Project Kawasaki was seventh today, but front row qualifier Robert Schotman (Motoport Kawasaki) did not finish. Enzo de la Vega (GP Project Team Kawasaki) led the race twice but finished ninth, while Dorren Loureiro (DS Junior Team Kawasaki) tenth. Tom Edwards (Nutec - Benjan Kawasaki) was another non-finisher.

In the final championship standings Carrasco has 93 points, Perez 92 and Deroue 80, putting three Kawasaki Ninja 400 riders in the top three positions overall.

Ana Carrasco, stated: “It is unbelievable to win the championship and we worked so hard to be here. I did not know I had won on the slowdown lap. I tried to see some TVs to check but I did not see any. I only realised when I got to turn five and I asked the spectators if I was first. I can only say thank you to a David Salom and all the Kawasaki DS Junior Team, it is for all of them. I also want to say thank you to my family who have done so much for me. I want to dedicate this title to Luis Salom. The day we lost him I promised to dedicate my first title to him. At the moment I am happy because we have achieved our goals, but I do not realise all of the things about being the first woman in history. I think after a few days I will be more conscious of this.”

Mika Perez, stated: “I gave my maximum today. I knew it was win or crash, and finally I got second. I tried everything and the team did a great job. We were very close to the win but we have to congratulate Ana and the race winner Dani because they did an incredible job.” 

Scott Deroue, stated: “We had a really good weekend until now and I think we were one of the fastest. Every session we were in the top positions so I was feeling really good. I felt the same in the race and I was in the top three all the time. Then with seven laps to go my gear lever broke and it was over. We had good speed this season and were really consistent but in Misano we had a problem and today we were supposed to finish on the podium again, and then this happens.”
