Press Release:The MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship returned to Donington Park for the Prosecco DOC UK Round and six-time Champion Jonathan Rea (Kawasaki Racing Team WorldSBK) laid down the gauntlet by topping Free Practice 1 by over half-a-second of his nearest rivals as he looks to get back to winning ways.

Rea posted a lap time of 1’27.841s during the 45-minute session to go fastest in the morning at Donington Park, ahead of Toprak Razgatlioglu (Pata Yamaha with BRIXX WorldSBK). The Turkish star missed out on running in the first 15 minutes of the session and ran out of sync with his rivals but was able to move up the order into second place.

In third place was Tom Sykes (BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team) with the British rider having a small crash at the Turn 11 Melbourne Hairpin when he lost the front of his BMW M 1000 RR, but he was able to return to the track after having his bike checked over in the garage.
