2022 Donington World Superbike FP2 Result: Rea Grabs Half A Second

Jonathan Rea set the fastest time on his first and lap beat it three times, spending the entire session at the top of the timing screens and ending the session over half a second clear of Toprak Razgatlioglu and a resurgent Scott Redding, making the most of a new swingarm from BMW. Alex Lowes was fourth quickest, happy with his Kawasaki's performance at his home round, with the Ducatis of Alvaro Bautista and Michael Ruben Rinaldi rounding out the top six. Both Razgatlioglu and Bautista claimed that their targets for tomorrow were podiums as they didn't think they'd be able to match Rea's pace in the feature races.

In the wildcard fight, Tarran Mackenzie led Peter Hickman with the pair fifteenth and sixteenth on the list.

Thanks Jared. Any news on Michael van der Mark? He didn't set the world on fire at Assen so I guess he is in no hurry to come back. A fractured femur will take a while to heal up, but it's been four months so far?

Jonathan is looking fast, race pace will mean more than one lap speed. JR will be rapid for sure, not half a second a lap in the races, I hope. It is possible to pass at Donington, so qualifying won't be super critical.

Congratulations to Peter Hickman and Tarran McKenzie! Faster than almost half the field of regular SBK riders & the Ukrainian.
