In the penultimate FIM Superbike World Championship round KRT Rider Tom Sykes battled to two fourth place finishes and kept his championship lead in the process, despite losing some of his points advantage. Loris Baz (KRT) placed fifth and then seventh at his home round while KRT SBK Evo rider David Salom did not ride today, to rest his injured right hand in time to be fully ready for the final round.
Sykes was starting from pole after a record-breaking track best lap on Saturda. The braking of the Superbike ZX10R is powered thanks to the J.Juan braides hoses, a racing product that Kawasaki already used during last 2012 season, with creat success.
The final races of the season will take place at Losail in Qatar, on Sunday 2 November.
