Imola ready to host the Acerbis Italian Round

May 8, 2015

Great anticipation ahead event number five of the 2015 WorldSBK season.

The fifth event of the WorldSBK season takes the series to Imola for the Acerbis Italian Round. In the Province of Bologna and the Emilia-Romagna region, the circuit named in honour of Enzo and Dino Ferrari has been on the World Superbike calendar since 2001, with the exceptions of 2007 and 2008 when the series raced at Vallelunga. The current 4.936km layout features 22 corners of which 13 are left-handers. The flowing nature of the layout, the many elevation changes and the lack of long straights make Imola one of the most demanding and technical tracks in the world.
Imola has hosted a total of 23 races to date, with only the second encounter of 2005 having been called off due to adverse conditions. Furthermore, since 2002, no less than seven events out of 11 have thrown up double victories; Colin Edwards did it first on the historic day when he beat Troy Bayliss to a second world title, whereas the latest was taken by current series leader Jonathan Rea in 2014.

Surely facts like this generate only further confidence for the Kawasaki Racing Team rider, who has already picked up two doubles since the start of 2015: Buriram and Assen. Having collected a massive 95% of the maximum championship points on offer so far this season, few would bet against the Northern Irish Kawasaki rider.

There could be a lot for the Italians to shout about this weekend. Aprilia has achieved no less than 11 podiums at the track and at least one of the marque’s bikes has always finished in the top five of every Imola race since the start of 2009. The manufacturer’s leading representative in the current standings is Leon Haslam, who is the closest challenger to Rea and took a victory in Australia, while rookie team-mate Jordi Torres is yet to finish lower than in sixth position every time he sees the chequered flag.

Perhaps the biggest stories will be the World Superbike comebacks of two famous names. Davide Giugliano finally returns, having been ruled out of action when he injured his back in a pre-season testing crash at Phillip Island. Since then, his Racing – Ducati SBK Team has returned to winning ways with Chaz Davies, who is third in the championship standings. Last year, Giugliano started on the front row at Imola, having finished on the podium after leading Race 1 in 2013. Elsewhere, Michel Fabrizio is also likely to boost attendance figures as he reappears on the grid, subbing for Nico Terol at the Althea Racing Team. The 30-year-old from Rome has been a regular on the grid since 2006 and will ride alongside fellow countryman Matteo Baiocco ahead of Terol’s suspected return at Donington Park. The grid’s other Italian is Ayrton Badovini, who believes his season ‘will begin’ at Imola, where in the Superstock 1000 class he won in 2010; this was his ninth victory out of ten races in what proved to be a truly dominant title-winning campaign.
Behind the championship top three of Rea, Haslam and Davies, 2013 title winner Tom Sykes (Kawasaki Racing Team) is looking to get his championship fight back on track, having struggled with a major lack of rear-end traction last time out at Assen. Such struggles were not a problem for Pata Honda World Superbike Team’s Michael van der Mark, who made history by becoming the first Dutchman to clinch a World Superbike podium finish; he immediately doubled the tally by clinching another podium in Race 2. He now sits just five points in arrears of World Champion team-mate Sylvain Guintoli, while the championship top ten is completed by Barni Racing Team’s Leandro Mercado. At Voltcom Crescent Suzuki, Alex Lowes and Randy de Puniet move into their third round since switching to a Magneti Marelli electronics package. They will continue to juggle their race setup work with bike development, with the ongoing testing ban meaning the British-based team is having to use practice sessions to continue expanding its bike capabilities. Although it may be a steep mountain to climb, signs of progress were visible in The Netherlands two weekends ago, not least as Lowes qualified on the second row of the grid and went on to finish Race 2 in ninth place.
Several riders will reach landmark race start numbers in Italy. Ayrton Badovini will make his 130th World Superbike start in Race 2 and Davide Giugliano’s return will begin with his 80th race in the opening encounter. As for championship leader Jonathan Rea, Imola’s second race will see him become the 24th rider to start 150 races in WorldSBK’s premier class. He debuted on the Algarve in 2008; since then, Rea has amassed 21 race wins, 50 podium finishes, 13 Superpoles and 13 fastest laps. He also carries the sixth-largest lead after the opening eight races of a season in the series’ history, with a 50-point cushion over Haslam.

2015 eni FIM Superbike World Championship (4 of 13 rounds completed)
1 – Jonathan Rea Kawasaki Racing Team – 190
2 – Leon Haslam Aprilia Racing Team – Red Devils – 140
3 – Chaz Davies Racing – Ducati Superbike Team – 123
4 – Tom Sykes Kawasaki Racing Team 88

Bonsey Takes Thursday’s Harley-Davidson GNC1 presented by Vance & Hines Main Event Victory at DAYTONA Flat Track

Mar 13, 2015

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (March 12, 2015) – Stevie Bonsey was flawless from start to finish on Thursday night during the AMA Pro Flat Track season-opener at DAYTONA Flat Track.

Bonsey was mounted on the only Suzuki in the Honda-stacked Harley-Davidson GNC1 presented by Vance & Hines main event, which was sponsored by Bruce Rossmeyer’s Daytona Harley-Davidson. He earned the coveted Round 1 victory by a mere .123 seconds on his No. 80 machine over a charging Jared Mees, who was sporting the No 1 plate for the first time this season.


The battle between Bonsey and Mees, riding a Montgomeryville Cycle Honda, was so close from start to finish, that the two touched tires on multiple occasions throughout the duration of the race. The win is Bonsey’s first at DAYTONA Flat Track and his third career victory. Taking the checkered flag gives the 25-year-old Salinas, Calif., product hope for a breakout season in 2015.


“I’m on top of the world right now,” said Bonsey. “It’s been a real struggle to get here but the hard work has finally paid off and I couldn’t be standing where I am right now without everyone that’s helped me along the way. It’s been a long deal to get ready for this season and it’s starting to pay off. I’m hungry now and these guys are tough. They are consistent at all … tracks and that’s what I’m trying to work on myself. I’m good on these short tracks but I need to work on my mile skills. Thank you to all the fans for coming out and supporting.”

Kenny Coolbeth rounded out the Harley-Davidson GNC1 presented by Vance & Hines podium, taking third on his No. 2 Zanotti Racing Honda. Brandon Robinson (No. 44 T.J. Burnett Farms Honda) and Robert Pearson (No. 27 R&R Racing Yamaha) finished fourth and fifth, respectively.


Earlier in the night, Coolbeth beat out Pearson to win the Dash for Cash.



A star was born on Thursday night in AMA Pro Flat Track’s GNC2 class, as 17-year-old Andrew Luker got the holeshot on lap one of the main event and went flag-to-flag from there, earning his first GNC2 victory in just his second race ever competing in the series.

“It feels amazing to be on top of this podium,” said Luker. “I tried to get a good start from the outside and I was able to do that. I just put my head down once I got the lead and just kept charging. I have to thank my sponsors and my mom and dad, they are always working on the bikes and getting them better. I want to also say a special thanks to my great grandmother who is watching right now.”

Starting in second, Luker, on his No. 11Z Clayton Williams Racing Honda, beat pole-sitter Bronson Bauman to the edge on the race’s first turn. Refusing to look back and give another inch for the remainder of the race, Luker crossed the finish line first 16 laps later.


John Vanderlaan eventually worked up to second place on his No. 12Y Southland Racing Honda, and Dan Bromley rounded out the podium in third aboard his No. 54A Bromley Brothers KTM

Friday’s Round 2 of the AMA Pro Flat Track season kicks off from DAYTONA Flat Track at 3:30 p.m. ET (12:30 p.m. PT). Fans can tune in and watch live at
