WSB 2015 Assen race one results
Yet another disastrous race for Voltcom Crescent Suzuki
KAWASAKI Racing Team’s Jonathan Rea won the opening Dutch World Superbike race at the TT circuit to take his 5th win of the 2015 season.
After fighting with six other riders during the 21-lap race, Rea managed to ease away from the rest of the field with only two laps to go leaving Ducati’s Chaz Davies to finish in second.
Michael van der Mark finished on the bottom step of the podium in third becoming the first Dutchman in World Superbike history to stand on the podium. Leon Haslam was demoted to fourth as van der Mark made a move through the fast left hander of Ramshoek on the penultimate lap.
Rea’s team-mate and former World Superbike Champion Tom Sykes faded over race distance due to, what appeared to be lack of grip, to finish fifth.
Rookie Jordi Torres recovered from a mediocre start to finish ahead of Xavi Fores leaving him in 7th whilst reigning World Superbike Champion Sylvain Guintoli rode a lonely race to finish in eighth place for the Pata Honda World Superbike Team.
A five second gap saw Nico Terol cross the line in ninth very closely followed by Leon Camier as they almost crossed the line side by side.
Another disastrous race for the Voltcom Crescent Suzuki team as both Alex Lowes and Randy de Puniet went down together at Turn 1. The Frenchman crashed alone and collected his team-mate who looked to have run straight on. Both riders were unhurt.
