A super weekend in Superbike
Last weekend has been a super weekend in the SBK worldwide.
When Accossato meets Harley and the Wyman family magic happens.
Let’s from the US where Kyle and Travis Wyman use Accossato PZ001 CNC-worked radial brake calipers in the King of the Baggers competition.
Kyle won the competition and his brother Travis got the second position.
In the SBK Kyle unfortunately had an accident and broke his elbow. Best of luck to Kyle – Accossato cannot wait to see him racing again on his Ducati V4R – fully Accossato brakes equipped.
Now let’s move to Misano with the WSBK
FORGET MISANO, DONINGTON IS IN SIGHT!
Unfortunately there is not much to say about today; Chaz crashed in Superpole Race, injuring his right shoulder, so he had been forced to raise the white flag after a few laps of Race 2.
The day seemed to have started well, the Welsh rider had a better feeling with the bike right from the Warm Up. In Superpole Race, however, after a contact at the Turn 2 with Mahias, he fell to the ground, hardly hitting his shoulder and right arm.
Denis Sacchetti (Team Manager):
"Unfortunately today everything went wrong, Chaz did well to stop in the race, here at Misano if the right shoulder is not at 100% it is dangerous to ride and it would have been useless to try to finish the race, also because he would have risked damaging his shoulder further and we need Chaz to be 100% fit for the next race. We are sorry, because from the home race it would always be nice to come out with a good result. The important thing is to keep morale high and be aware that we have all the credentials to be back already from Donington."
Barni Racing Team
Misano Adriatico, June 13th 2021. The Barni Racing Team and Tito Rabat didn’t confirm the good signs from Friday and the rest of the weekend. After great free laps, the Spanish rider didn’t manage to improve his feeling with his Ducati Panigale V4 R and the reaults were below the expectations. Rabat finished with a P14 in both Superpole Race and Race 2, getting 2 additional points in the world ranking where he’s 16th with 16 points in total.
Last but now least – Puccetti Kawasaki
Kawasaki Puccetti Racing – Constant improvement for Mahias at Misano in WorldSBK
The third round of the Superbike World Championship has concluded today at the Misano World Circuit in Italy.
In Superpole the Frenchman obtained an excellent seventh place, before finishing the opening race in eleventh position. This morning, Lucas was back on track for warm-up, while the ten-lap Superpole race got underway at 11am local time.
Like yesterday, the Kawasaki Puccetti Racing rider lined up on row three of the grid. He made quite a fast start and was lying ninth through the opening laps. Unfortunately, though, during the course of lap eight, Lucas suffered a crash that damaged his bike and left him unable to continue the race.
In the afternoon, Mahias was back on track for the final race of this third round. Having not placed in the Superpole race, Lucas started from row four for the 21-lap race.
Through the first laps, the Kawasaki Puccetti Racing rider held tenth place, fighting in the chasing group. With a fast and consistent pace, Mahias maintained tenth until a few laps from the end, when a drop in tyre grip forced him to concede a position and cross the line eleventh.
Kawasaki Puccetti Racing will be back on track for round 4 of the Superbike World Championship, over the weekend of 2-4 July at the Donington Park circuit in the UK.
