WSBK: Sykes heads another Kawasaki 1-2 in race two at Donington 


Race two at Donington Park was once again a close encounter with the leading bunch of riders locked together until a clash between Alex Lowes (Voltcom Crescent Suzuki) and Marco Melandri (Aprilia Racing Team) at the Melbourne Hairpin split the group. The 23 lap race then saw a three way fight between Sylvain Guintoli (Aprilia Racing Team), Loris Baz (Kawasaki Racing Team) and race one winner Tom Sykes (Kawasaki Racing Team) with Sykes eventually edging the victory and taking with it the championship lead. 
Just as in race one Loris Baz took second position with Sylvain Guintoli (Aprilia Racing Team) taking the last podium place after a much stronger second race for the Frenchman. Davide Giugliano (Ducati Superbike Team) recovered from his crash earlier to claim 4th. Chaz Davies (Ducati Superbike Team) was a lonely 5th ahead of Jonathan Rea (Pata Honda World Superbike Team) who finished 6th. David Salom added to the celebrations for Kawasaki in the EVO category, by once again being the best classified rider, finishing a credible 10th overall.
