News Letter - almost 5 years
Ulster’s Jonathan Rea claimed his second World Superbike victory of the season in controversial fashion following a dramatic last corner clash at Donington Park in race two. Rea was battling with factory BMW riders Leon Haslam and Marco Melandri when the trio were involved in a last corner pile-up that saw both Haslam and Melandri crash out with the chequered flag in sight.

There was contact and British ace Haslam went down, sliding into the path of Melandri as both riders were eliminated from the race, denying BMW the chance of another one-two after Melandri took the honours in race one from his team-mate. Rea managed to remain upright on his CBR1000RR and claimed his second success of the season and his first World Superbike podium at the 25-year-old’s adopted ‘home’ circuit. Rea, who fi ...
