2022 Phillip Island World Superbike Race Two Result: Racing The Rain

Australia wanted more excitement for the last race of the year so it brought rain in for race two, but it stopped raining as the riders headed to the grid and was dry again by the time the race started. Everyone lined up for twenty two laps on slick tyres. 

Alvaro Bautista led into turn one as Garrett Gerloff and Xavi Vierge crashed out, Gerloff clipping Vierge's rear tyre into turn two. Jonathan Rea and Scott Redding passed Bautista on the first lap as Bautista went wide, ahead of Toprak Razgatlioglu, Alex Lowes and Andrea Locatelli. Alex Lowes set the fastest lap, a 1'30.991, and fought off attempts by Bautista to take third from him. The leading six riders were over a second clear of the fight between three Ducatis for seventh place, Michael Ruben Rinaldi, Axel Bassani and Philipp Oettl covered by a second.

Jonathan Rea started to escape from the riders behind him and Bautista got past Redding and he was followed by Lowes and Razgatlioglu, pushing Redding to firth place ahead of Locatelli.

Bautista set a 1'30.956 on lap five, catching Rea. Locatelli pushed Redding into turn four to push Redding to the back of the leading group. A lap later, Bautista set a 1'30.956 and powered past Rea down the straight to take the lead before the finish line. Two seconds covered the top six. Bautista set a 1'30.879 on lap seven, but couldn't escape Rea and Razgatlioglu as a gap formed between Lowes and Locatelli. 

At half race distance, Bautista led Rea, Razgatlioglu and Lowes with less than a second covering the leading four riders. Over four seconds behind them, Andrea Locatelli led Scott Redding by over a second with Michael Ruben Rinaldi four and a half seconds further back. 

At the start of lap fourteen of twenty two, Toprak Razgatlioglu started losing touch with the leading pair and Lowes started nipping at Razgatlioglu's heels, looking for a way past. A lap later, Lowes had better drive into and out of the last corner and he passed Razgatlioglu down the straight but he was staring at a gap of almost two seconds to his teammate Rea ahead of him.

Fifteen laps down, Rea was still under two tenths behind Bautista, over two seconds clear of Lowes and Razgatlioglu. Andrea Locatelli was over six seconds behind them and four seconds ahead of a lonely Scott Redding as the sky darkened slightly. 

With less than five laps remaining, Eugene Laverty and Xavi Fores crashed into turn one, Laverty crashing out of the last race of his career and was taken to the medical centre, bringing out the red flags. As over two thirds of the race was completed, the result was called, giving Alvaro Bautista the win ahead of Jonathan Rea and Alex Lowes. Toprak Razgatlioglu took fourth place, seven seconds clear of Andrea Locatelli. Scott Redding was in sixth place. The rain finally showed up on the cool down lap, after the race was decided. 

Alvaro Bautista had a quiet word with his Ducati Panigale V4R and gave it a little kiss before returning to the Parc Fermé revelries. 

The season close arrived a few laps premature and the riders who finished were rushing to get out of the newly-arrived rain, cutting public celebrations short. It's assumed everyone went back to Dominique Aegerter's mobile home for a party.

2022 Phillip Island World Supersport Race Two Result: Finally, A Dry Race

The last World Supersport race of the year was eighteen laps off Phillip Island and the grid lined up for a dry race. Niki Tuuli was ruled unfit after stomach pains. Leonardo Taccini would start from the back of the grid due to a tyre pressure infringement. 

Nicolo Bulega led Yari Montella and Federico Caricasulo in to turn one but Montella took to the outside to take second place only to be pushed wide by the field. Montella crashed with Can Oncu, ending his race and swerved through the pack making a few riders nervous as he climbed to fifth place. Dominique Aegerter led Lorenzo Baldassarri at the start of lap two but Baldassarri took the lead as the pair swapped back and forth throughout the lap. 

On the second lap, behind Baldassarri, Aegerter, Caricasulo and Bulega, Yari Montella set the fastest lap, a 1'34.875. Stefano Manzi followed him through to take sixth place ahead of Marcel Schroetter. 

On lap three, Schroetter set the fastest lap, a 1'34.659, just over two seconds off the leader. Aegerter took over at the lead as Baldassarri went wide into turn four. Montella clawed his way up to third place to duel with Caricasulo as the leading four were caught by Manzi, Bulega and Schroetter. Carucasulo passed Montella and Aegerter but as Aegerter took second place back, Montella was handed a long lap penalty for his incident with Oncu, declared irresponsible riding.

On lap six, Montella took his penalty around the loop outside turn four and returned to the race in seventh place ahead of Raffaele De Rosa. Lap seven, Aegerter took the lead back from Baldassarri into turn one ahead of Federico Caricasulo and Stefano Manzi who set the fastest lap, a 1'34.008, and then crashed, pushed off the track by Caricasulo underneath him. Manzi recovered in twentieth place. Caricasulo took the lead, charging from third place to first into turn one, but Aegerter took the lead back from him out of the turn and into turn two.

As Baldassarri fought with Caricasulo, Aegerter did his rabbit impression early, teasing out a second in a lap to lead by over a second at half race distance. Caricasulo led Baldassarri by two hundredths of a second as Schroetter defended against Montella over a second behind the podium fight. 

A second behind Aegerter, Caricasulo set a 1'34.008 fastest lap as Montella took fourth from Schroetter and stared at a gap of under a second and a half to the podium places. Bulega followed Schroetter through to take fifth from the German. 

At two thirds race distance, the weather looked like it wasn't going to interrupt the action as Aegerter led Caricasulo by a second and a half with Baldassarri a further second behind. Three and a half seconds further back, Bulega led Montella, Schroetter and De Rosa. Oli Bayliss held eighth place six and a half seconds further back. 

Lap seventeen of eighteen, Dominique Aegerter led Federico Caricasulo by two seconds with Lorenzo Baldassarri a second further back. Nicolo Bulega, six seconds off the podium, fended off Yari Montella with Raffaele De Rosa, fighting with his transponder, two seconds further back but a second clear of Marcel Schroetter. 

At the flag, Dominique Aegerter took the win, celebrating just under two seconds ahead of Federico Caricasulo and Lorenzo Baldassarri. Oli Bayliss celebrated his eighth place in front of his home crowd, nine seconds behind Marcel Schroetter on his debut Supersport weekend. Jules Cluzel finished in eleventh place on his final career race before he sat on the track with compatriots Loris Baz and Andy Verdoia to play a quick game of Uno. Dominique Aegerter showboated around the victory lap as Cluzel tried to destroy his last tyre. Aegerter squared off his rear tyre before twatting the rev limiter in Parc Fermé. Can Oncu retained third place in the championship in spite of his crash, but will likely not put Yari Montella on his Christmas card list. 

Dominique Aegerter took seventeen wins from twenty four races along with winning the MotoE title and heads off to World Superbike for 2023.

2022 Phillip Island World Superbike Superpole Race Result: Rain Delay Forces Hard Choices

World Superbike's last ten lap Superpole race of the year had a delayed pitman opening due to a downpour that appeared just as riders were about to get out to the grid. Puddles on the grid meant tyre choice would be important and the race was declared wet with the wind and sun adding to the unpredictability of the conditions. 

When the race eventually started, five minutes late, Toprak Razgatlioglu forced his way to the front with Andrea Locatelli following him. Alvaro Bautista was pushed out of position to fifteenth on his slick tyres by all the riders on intermediate tyres having better grip round corners. Alex Lowes pushed from fourth to first and Jonathan Rea passed Locatelli to get third place before the start of the second lap. Jonathan Rea set the fastest lap on lap two, as the leading three riders were covered by a quarter of a second, almost two seconds clear of Andrea Locatelli and Garrett Gerloff. 

Michael van der Mark pitted in to change his tyres. 

At the start of lap four, Rea passed Razgatlioglu bit it was Xavi Vierge who set the fastest lap, a 1'38.045, just two thousandths of a second quicker than Garrett Gerloff in front of him. A lap later, Bautista set a 1'34.617 on his slick tyres in eighth place. Jonathan Rea, Alex Lowes and Toprak Razgatlioglu all had a wet front and intermediate rear tyre and Rea took the lead ahead of Razgatlioglu and Lowes. 

At half race distance, Alvaro Bautista was less than seven seconds behind the leaders, lapping at similar pace to the leaders in traffic in seventh place. Jonathan Rea led Toprak Razgatlioglu with Alex Lowes almost two seconds off the lead. Lap six and Bautista set a 1'33.572, two seconds quicker than everyone else and carving his way past Vierge and Gerloff with ease.

At turn ten, Razgatlioglu took the lead from Rea with Alex Lowes under two seconds behind. Alvaro Bautista was over a second off Lowes and a second a lap quicker. Rea was glued to the back of Razgatlioglu with the pair three seconds off third-placed Bautista who passed Lowes and set a 1'32.636, two seconds a lap quicker than Rea, catching and passing him with ease and lining Razgatlioglu for a pass and making its stick over Lukey Heights and disappearing into the distance at two seconds a lap pace. 

Alvaro Bautista won by over three seconds over Toprak Razgatlioglu and Jonathan Rea who were separated by under a tenth of a second. This would be their positions for the second race this afternoon. Alex Lowes took fourth place to head the second row alongside Andrea Locatelli and Scott Redding who started from the pit lane after making a bold choice to change tyres before the race. Garrett Gerloff led the Xavis Vierge and Fores.

Jonathan Rea described Bautista's slick tyre strategy as "Big Balls." 

Second and third places in the championship were decided this race, with Razgatlioglu taking second behind Bautista and Rea taking third.

2022 Phillip Island World Supersport Race One Result: Rain Doesn't Dampen Spirits

After qualifying, the rain returned, putting standing water on the track for the first World Supersport Saturday race at the track. The race would be declared eighteen laps of a wet race; It's raining.

Federico Caricasulo led Yari Montella and Can Oncu at the start as Stefano Manzi, Hannes Soomer and Niki Tuuli failed to complete the first lap without incident.

Montella harried Caricasulo as Dominique Aegerter climbed up to fourth place behind Oncu. Oncu set the fastest lap on lap two with a 1'47.881 over a second behind the leading pair of Caricasulo and Montella. Lap three, Motella set the fastest lap, a 1'47.174, passing Caricasulo into turn one. Aegerter lost a bit of time in fourth place, getting instantly caught by Nicolo Bulega and Lorenzo Baldassarri exiting turn four.

Lap four and Caricasulo took the lead back setting a fastest lap of 1'46.539 in the progress. Montella and Caricasulo swapped back and forth throughout lap five, Montella passing outside turn nine. 

Nicolo Bulega held off Dominique Aegerter and Lorenzo Baldassarri as Marcel Schroetter watched his MV Agusta ride off into Miller Corner on its own. Montella set the fastest lap, a 1'45.709 on lap six. A lap later, Caricasulo posted a 1'45.681 less than half a second behind him. Can Oncu was over two and a half seconds behind getting caught by Nicolo Bulega, 
Dominique Aegerter and Lorenzo Baldassarri. Raffaele De Rosa was a very lonely four seconds behind. 

Nine laps in, half race distance, Yari Montella led Federico Caricasulo by just half a second. Three seconds further back, Nicolo Bulega led Can Oncu with Dominique Aegerter a second further back. Nicolo Bulega held the fastest lap, a 1'45.211, trying to close the gap to the two bikes leading.

A lap later, Caricasulo dropped off the lead, starting the lap a second behind Montella but he recovered the pace on lap eleven and built the gap behind him to almost two seconds over Bulega in the middle of the lap. 

At the start of lap thirteen, Caricasulo caught Montella and nudged his knee into turn one to take the lead from the Kawasaki man. Bulega was two seconds behind the fight in third place, three seconds clear of Oncu. 

Lap fifteen and Montella made the most of the end of lap fourteen to catch Caricasulo and pass him into turn one. With three laps to go, Montella led Caricasulo by just a third of a second with Nicolo Bulega over two seconds further back. Can Oncu sat in a safe fourth place two and a half seconds off Bulega but over a second clear of Baldassarri. 

Caricasulo passed Montella into turn three and cagily held the lead into turn four. In spite of a slight rear slide, he held the lead throughout the lap to start the last lap under a tenth off a second ahead of Montella and Montella carried enough speed into turn three to take the lead. Caricasulo fluffed turn four and crashed out to give Montella a massive lead over Nicolo Bulega and Can Oncu to win Kawasaki's first Supersport race win of the year. Lorenzo Baldassarri took fourth place five seconds ahead of Dominique Aegerter. Jules Cluzel crashed out, the seventh non-finisher, as Caricasulo recovered in seventh place six seconds behind Raffaele De Rosa. 

Seventeen riders of twenty four finished the race in spite of treacherous conditions. Yari Montella took his first career win and rode into Parc Fermé lying flat on his Kawasaki, Rollie Free style, almost ploughing into his team. 

Can Oncu secured third place in the championship and still looked annoyed at his result. He claimed to be happy until he said he was disappointed with third place in the race in spite of it being Kawasaki's best score of the year and securing him third place in the championship.

2022 Phillip Island World Superbike Superpole Result: Dry Enough For Slicks

Fifteen minutes of World Superbike Superpole qualifying benefitted from World Supersport trying the track out enough for slick tyres. 

Toprak Razgatlioglu held the top spot until Alex Lowes set a 1'30.609 on his first lap, ahead of Jonathan Rea and Alvaro Bautista. Bautista set a 1'30.304 a lap later and riders started pitting in for the last customary mid-session break of the year.

Jonathan Rea didn't pit in at the same time as the rest of the field, sneaking into second place before he headed back for new tyres. Halfway through the session, Kyle Smith finally got to get on track.

Six minutes left and riders started to head back out, but most of them waited for another minute or so before getting their last laps in. Jonathan Rea set a 1'30.026 before Alvaro Bautista posted a 1'29.815 to get the top spot with over two minutes left. Alex Lowes and Toprak Razgatlioglu set quicker laps to get into third and fourth quickest.

Tetsuta Nagashima crashed out at turn four, but the Marshalls were quick to clear the yellow flags. The chequered flag came out and the rain hinted at a return and the fast laps disappeared. 

Alvaro Bautista took pole position ahead of the Kawasaki pair of Jonathan Rea and Alex Lowes. Toprak Razgatlioglu was joined with his teammate Andrea Locatelli and Garrett Gerloff to make it an all-Yamaha second row.

2022 Phillip Island World Supersport Superpole Result: Tyre Choice On A Drying Track

World Supersport Superpole qualifying, the last of the year, started on a damp track that promised to dry out. 

Hannes Soomer opened the session with a 1'47.819, over thirteen seconds off yesterday's pace. Federico Caricasulo set a 1'47.645 followed by a 1'45.437, knocking Tom Booth-Amos and Hannes Soomer's improved times off the top. 

Newly crowned champion Dominique Aegerter returned to the pits to get his front suspension fiddled with before setting his first flying lap, a 1'43.216, over two seconds quicker than everyone else. Stefano Manzi and Hannes Soomer on the Triumphs slipped up to second and third places before Aegerter set a time over four seconds quicker than them with a 1'40.484. 

Jules Cluzel, in his career's last Superpole session, nipped up to second place as Aegerter set a 1'38.995, pushing every other rider apart from Cluzel out of the 105% qualifying time. 

Lorenzo Baldassarri joined Jules Cluzel within 105% of Dominique Aegerter with under seven minutes left, but Aegerter set a 1'38.253 to push everyone but Cluzel out of contention.

With four minutes left, Marcel Schrotter, Can Oncu and Andy Verdoia joined Cluzel as qualifiers, joined shortly after by Federico Caricasulo and Lorenzo Baldassarri as Aegerter posted a 1'37.923, almost three seconds quicker than the closest riders. Can Oncu and Marcel Schroetter joined Aegerter in the under-1'40s club as Aegerter set a 1'37.381 followed by Can Oncu and Marcel Schroetter on slick tyres. 

The slick tyres started to close on Aegerter's intermediate tyre lap time as Aegerter ran off the track and the flag came out. 

After the flag, fast riders on slick tyres threatened Aegerter's time, with Federico Caricasulo and Nicolo Bulega both posting 1'37.161s ahead of Yari Montella and Raffaele De Rosa. Dominique Aegerter's time put him in fifth place. 

The front row in this afternoon's race will be Federico Caricasulo in pole position, joined on the front row by Nicolo Bulega and Yari Montella. Raffaele De Rosa headed the second row alongside Dominique Aegerter and Lorenzo Baldassarri.

2022 Phillip Island World Superbike FP2 Result: GOOSE!

Phillip Island wouldn't be Phillip Island without some bird-related japes. The session was red-flagged under five minutes into the session as some Cape Barren geese wandered onto the track, but after the session resumed, Jonathan Rea set the quickest time ahead of Alvaro Bautista and Alex Lowes. Toprak Razgatlioglu, unable to improve on his morning's time was fourth-quickest. Tetsuta Nagashima, replacing injured Iker Lecuona, was sixth-quickest in his debut World Superbike weekend.
