Eugene Laverty and the Aprilia RSV4 dominated in the last round of the 2013 World SBK season.
In Race 1 Laverty got the best of Marco Melandri with an extraordinary pass on the outside in the last turn after having led the entire race until two laps from the end when the Italian overtook him. It looked like it was all over but Laverty dug deep and found the winning move – and the most difficult line – right at the turn that comes out onto the final straight stretch. His final flight to victory was exhilarating.
SUPERPOLE FOR EUGENE LAVERTY, EXTREMELY FAST IN ALL THE SESSIONS WITH A DOUBLE WIN IN HIS SIGHTS
SYLVAIN GUINTOLI WILL START FROM THE SECOND ROW TOMORROW (FIFTH BEST TIME)
DAVIDE GIUGLIANO ON THE TEAM ALTHEA RSV4 EARNED A FRONT ROW START WITH THE THIRD BEST TIME
The stated objective was to leave no space for his rivals and Eugene Laverty lived up to the expectations. Extremely fast in all the sessions, the Northern Irish rider rode his RSV4 to the second Superpole of the season on the Jerez circuit. Team mate Sylvain Guintoli stopped the clock with the fifth best time, in any case consoled by the good times he made during the practice sessions.
APRILIA IS VERY FAST ON THE FIRST DAY OF PRACTICE AT JEREZ DE LA FRONTERA
EUGENE LAVERTY AND SYLVAIN GUINTOLI ARE OFF TO A GOOD START ON A TRACK THEY BOTH KNOW WELL
THE ELIAS (RED DEVILS) AND GIUGLIANO (ALTHEA RACING) RSV4S ARE ALSO IN THE TOP-5
The weekend for Aprilia Racing Team at Jerez de la Frontera, the last round in the 2013 World Superbike season, is off to the best possible start. In fact, official riders Eugene Laverty and Sylvain Guintoli demonstrated excellent pace from the first two practice sessions, finishing respectively in second and third place (in free practice) and third and fifth (in qualifying practice).
THE WORLD SUPERBIKE CHAMPIONSHIP SEASON WILL FINISH ON THE SPECTACULAR SPANISH JEREZ CIRCUIT
EUGENE LAVERTY AND SYLVAIN GUINTOLI ARE EAGER TO FINISH THE SEASON THE BEST POSSIBLE WAY
APRILIA IS CLOSE TO THE MANUFACTURER TITLE, HAVING DOMINATED THE STANDINGS FROM THE FIRST ROUND
The final round of the 2013 World Superbike season is about to kick off on a brand new track for the factory derivative championship – the spectacular Jerez circuit. The Aprilia Racing Team will arrive in Spain mathematically within a shout of victory for both Eugene Laverty and team mate Sylvain Guintoli, both of whom have put in an excellent season. The probabilities certainly don’t favour the Aprilia riders, but in any case they are ready to give it their all on a track that they know well since it was the Italian team’s test track this year.
