2021 San Juan Villicum World Superbike FP2 Result: Razgatlioglu Still Quickest

Toprak Razgatlioglu was quickest again as everyone improved on their mornings' times. Scott Redding was a quarter of a second behind with Alex Lowes a further quarter of a second back. Jonathan Rea was making good pace but crashed out at high speed fifteen minutes in, ending his session as his bike's exhaust stuck out at ninety degrees, requiring a rebuild that would take longer than the remaining thirty minutes.

2021 Austin MotoGP Race Result: A Walkover More Than A Walkdown

If you’ve had enough of the rodeo puns by now, how about the seventh instalment of a spaghetti western where the rivals drop to the ground before the cowboy even starts the walkdown? That was pretty much the story of how Marc Marquez reclaimed his throne at the Circuit of the Americas. While the Honda man enjoyed the sweetest tasing donut of the last couple of years from the top step of the podium for a seventh time, Fabio Quartararo was almost as delighted to take second and put one hand firmly on the big trophy. Although he did a solid recovery job in the closing stages of the race, poleman Pecco Bagnaia could not reach the high bar he set for himself over the last couple of weekends and had to make do with the final podium place.

Missing out on pole did not seem to harm Marquez in the slightest, the Spaniard making a fine start to lead the way into turn one, ahead of Quartararo and Bagnaia, with Alex Rins immediately in the mix and attacking for third. Teammate Joan Mir also made some early progress up to sixth, while Johann Zarco dropped to 10th, behind Jack Miller.

Although Marquez had his lead unchallenged going into the second lap, the escape was pending, as he only found a couple of tenths on Quartararo and Rins, while Bagnaia dropped half a tenth back and was under pressure from Jorge Martin, Takaaki Nakagami and Mir. The pressure on the Italian was alleviated somewhat when Nakagami crashed out at turn 12 but he was also losing tenths on Martin in the early stages, while Brad Binder, Miller and Zarco were chasing them to soon join the group.

Back at the front, Marquez kept Quartararo just out of striking distance, but the duo kept close for the next few laps, while Rins and Martin were battling right behind. The Bagnaia-led group was also bridging the gap, with Miller playing wingman just behind the Italian and keeping Mir, Binder and Zarco at bay. However, Zarco did not even get a chance to challenge the men ahead, as he crashed out at turn one on lap five.

If until that point there was merely a hint at an escape plan, Marquez’s gap suddenly increased to over a second on lap six, while Quartararo was under fire from Martin. After a steady start, Miller was on the attack as well and climbed into fourth, ahead of Rins, Bagnaia, Binder and Mir, who did not seem to make much noise in the early stages and allowed some pretty significant gaps to build between them over the next few laps.

The biggest gap was still Marquez’s, the COTA king over two seconds ahead by the halfway point of the race, while Quartararo had ditched Martin, who dropped within reach of Milller. Although the Australian bridged the gap with relative ease, getting past the Spaniard was not an easy task and the rookie kept stretching away from his factory colleague. Another second down the road, Bagnaia found some pace mid-race to get past Rins and within a couple of laps had closed onto his teammate to challenge for fifth. The challenge was brief, Miller allowing Bagnaia past with eight laps remaining and fending off Rins, whose teammate was enjoying a safe gap on Binder but making no impact on the one second gap to Rins.

Despite the terrifying jolts every time he was on screen, Marquez extended a four-second gap on Quartararo going into the final handful of laps, while Martin’s podium looked reasonably secure despite the late speed shown by Bagnaia. The Italian kept pushing but the 1.8 seconds gap was slow to budge, with the cameras turning their focus to the battle behind him, where Rins got the better of Miller with five laps left and quickly dropped the Ducati.

A flawless Marquez continued on route to reclaim the COTA throne from a distant but happy Quartararo, but a few mistakes started creeping in behind them towards the end. The first major one dropped Martin right back into Bagnaia’s clutches for the final four laps and the rookie withheld the pressure but didn’t do as good of a job with track limits and was promptly handed out a long lap penalty for taking a shortcut between turns four and five. To add insult to injury, Bagnaia quite effortlessly breezed past with two laps remaining and serving the penalty lost Martin another position to Rins on the final lap. Enea Bastianini was hindered by a 16th grid position but the rookie had joined the top 10 halfway through the race and chased Mir and Miller for the final few laps. Contact between the two on the final lap allowed Bastianini to swoop in and claim sixth place, while Mir took seventh from Miller, although the incident was quickly under investigation and the roles were reversed. Binder and Pol Espargaro rounded out the top 10 positions, with a notable mention to Andrea Dovizioso, who finished 13th and wasn’t too far off the top 10 on his second race for Petronas.

Despite missing out on the win, Quartararo seemed as happy as he’s ever been, fully aware that the outcome gets him one step closer to the title, with a nice 52-point cushion over Bagnaia, as the sole challenger left.

2021 Austin Moto2 Race Result: Keep Rollin' Rollin' Rollin'

After the disaster of the Moto3 race, the intermediate class was back to basics, with a lot of blue and orange in the limelight, but with the right amount of drama in there too. At the end of 18 difficult laps – difficult for everyone but Raul Fernandez – the Spaniard claimed his third consecutive victory and equalled Marc Marquez’s record as the rookie with most Moto2 wins. Fabio Di Giannantonio did his best to challenge the runaway victor, but was happy enough to return to the podium on its second step, while compatriot Marco Bezzecchi shared the cava in third place.

Poleman Fernandez probably did not expect to have an easy time with his teammate right besides him on the grid but the challenge going into turn 1 came from local favourite Cameron Beaubier. Although the American very briefly led his home race, the enthusiastic approach to the first corner dropped him right back behind the two Red Bull KTM Ajo boys, as well as Di Giannantonio and Bezzecchi. Despite a couple exchanges with teammate Gardner, Raul Fernandez was back in control by lap two, while Gardner was immediately under fire from Beaubier and Di Giannantonio, but with a sizeable group still in tow.

Fernandez was not too worried about the group as he quickly extended a one second gap by lap 3, with Di Giannantonio leading the pursuit, but a wobble at turn 15 lost him position to both Gardner and Beaubier. Bezzecchi and Tony Arbolino tagged along for the ride, but the next group led by Xavi Vierge had dropped eight tenths down the road and the gaps continued to increase.

Although Fernandez did not have a problem maintaining his advantage over the next few laps, he was helped a bit by Beaubier challenging Gardner. The Australian was given a bit of a breather by a mistake at turn 11 from the American but his fortunes quickly changed and an uncharacteristic mistake at turn 15 ended Gardner’s race on lap six. Di Giannantonio picked up the task of reeling in Fernandez once more, and it initially looked like the 2-second gap was manageable, but Fernandez picked up the pace again and kept the Italian at a respectable distance. Di Giannantonio did not have much to worry about from behind, with Bezzecchi one second back and the battle for fourth, between Beaubier and Augusto Fernandez, was over two seconds behind him. Meanwhile, a slow starting Sam Lowes retired on lap nine with some technical niggles.

Raul Fernandez continued to lead the way past the halfway mark of the race and although Di Giannantonio seemed to recover a couple tenths here and there, the Spaniard entered the final handful of laps with over two seconds in his pocket. With Di Giannantonio and Bezzecchi pretty secure in their podium positions, all eyes were on Augusto Fernandez, Beaubier and Arbolino, who were still in contention for fourth. The cameras were also kept busy by quite a few crashes in the latter half of the race, including the likes of Albert Arenas and Celestino Vietti dropping out of top 10 positions. Fernandez wrapped up the race with his almost trademark consistency, taking the chequered flag 1.7 seconds ahead of Di Giannantonio, with Bezzecchi securing third, although Augusto Fernandez closed the gap significantly over the final few laps. Beaubier took his first top five in the class on home soil and got a loud reception, followed by rookies Arbolino and Ai Ogura and the more experienced Xavi Vierge, Marcos Ramirez and Jake Dixon completing the top 10.

The bittersweet afternoon for the Red Bull KTM Ajo squad sees Raul Fernandez close the gap to Gardner in the championship standings to only nine points, with Bezzecchi keeping third, 65 points behind.

2021 Austin Moto3 Race Result: No Stars Or Stripes On These Red Flags

Rodeo day at CotA got underway with the lightweight class braving the bumps in the warmest conditions of the weekend, but there was barely any time to discuss the infamous conditions because the race quickly turned into not one but two dramatic sprints. Little did Jaume Masia know when he lined up in pole position that he won’t end up in a featured role by the end of the day, but he did get a hint off the line, when Xavier Artigas made a suspiciously good start from the middle of the second row. Although Masia was back ahead by turn 2, the rookies were on a move, both Artigas and Izan Guevara getting past the poleman by the end of the first lap. However, Artigas swiftly received a double long lap penalty for a jump start, dropping him down to 15th position over the next few laps and leaving Guevara in the lead of the race, ahead of Masia and Alcoba.

Meanwhile, Dennis Foggia had lost some ground at the start, down to 8th place and was quickly trying to recover positions to rejoin the victory battle, as did John McPhee, and both riders made fast progress to catch up with the leading trio. The Italian joined the victory battle by lap five, bringing the likes of Deniz Öncü, Andrea Migno and the Petronas boys with him, but Pedro Acosta was also making progress and was up to 8th and only a second and a half behind the leader.

By lap six, it looked like an 11-man group had broken one second away from the next group led by Romano Fenati, but the Italian seemed keen to recover ground and had Ayumu Sasaki, Filip Salac and Artigas for company – the sanctioned rookie the fastest man on track at that stage.

Guevara continued to be at the front of the leading group over the next few laps, while Foggia, McPhee and Masia allowed him a bit of breathing room. Acosta picked up the chase seven tenths back, but red flags started waving on lap 7, as a consequence of Filip Salac requiring some medical attention after a crash at turn 11. While the Czech rider was taken to the medical centre, thankfully conscious, a brand new five-lap sprint got underway, with the grid positions based on the standings of the last completed lap, placing Guevara on pole from Foggia and McPhee.

Once the lights went out for a second time, Guevara kept the lead from pole, with McPhee and Öncü getting ahead of Foggia, who once again lost a couple places at the start. Öncü briefly found his way into the lead but Guevara fought back and the exchange allowed Binder to get in the mix. Acosta made a good start to join the top 6 early on, but then started losing ground and dropped down to 11th by lap two.

Guevara looked like extending a gap at the front but disaster struck on the second lap, when the Spaniard ran wide at turn 12 and retired with a mechanical problem. While the rookie was busy destroying the décor in his box in a bit of a tantrum, McPhee inherited the lead ahead of a 10-man lead group closed by Acosta. However, an unfortunate touch of wheels on the back straight on lap 3 caused a scary crash for Alcoba and catapulted Migno and Acosta a long way down the road. Another red flag was inevitable and watching all three riders walk away was almost unbelievable.

Riders returned to pitlane once more and the rulebook was back out, but it seemed useless in this unique scenario. After some deliberations, the race was understandably not resumed or restarted but confusingly, the results at the first red flag were declared final, handing Guevara a surprise maiden win and placing Foggia and McPhee on the podium. Initial poleman Masia had to make do with fourth, ahead of Öncü, Alcoba and Binder, with Acosta, Suzuki and Migno completing the top 10.

Although Acosta probably had more on his mind than the championship after the Sunday he’s had, he continues to lead the title standings, although Foggia reduced the gap slightly. Despite missing out on the race following a crash on Friday, Sergio Garcia remains third and not totally out of contention just yet.

2021 Portimao World Superbike Race Two Result: A False Start, An Exploding Mudguard And A Racing Incident

After a shakeup in the morning's Superpole race, World Superbike benefits from the 22ºC weather, warming the track to a dry 37ºC. The start was delayed with a mix up with the lights. The mechanics ran out on track with stands and tyre warmers to the applause of the crowds celebrating anything even close to a race. The restarted race would be nineteen laps after another warm-up lap.

Scott Redding led into turn one, ahead of Andrea Locatelli and Michael van der Mark. Toprak Razgatlioglu and Jonathan Rea both charged through in the first few turns, passing Van der Mark for third and fourth places. As Razgatlioglu gets caught up behind Locatelli on turn thirteen, Rea slipped under razgatlioglu to line up behind Locatelli onto the straight to take second place into turn one. Scott Redding defended the lead but Rea charged through into the Craig Jones turn to go from tenth to first in a lap and a half.

At threw start of lap three, the leading trio of Rea, Redding and Razgatlioglu were three abreast i to turn one, with Scott Redding leading Toprak Razgatlioglu and Jonathan Rea as Razgatlioglu set the fastest lap, a 1'41.797. Andrea Locatelli was close by in fourth place with Michael Ruben Rinaldi and Alvaro Bautista over a second behind. Lap four, and razgatlioglu hits turn one too hard, taking the lead but overshooting and dropping to third. Scott Redding held the lead until turn five but his wide line let Rea take the lead with a tight apex. Razgatlioglu played the same move on him a few turns later. 

Lap five and the leading four were covered by under a second, with Rea, Razgatlioglu, Redding and Locatelli almost two seconds clear of Michael Ruben Rinaldi and Alvaro Bautista. Bautista took fifth off Rinaldi with Loris Baz and Michael van der Mark closely behind them. Lap seven of nineteen, and Rea led Razgatlioglu but Razgatlioglu, setting the fastest lap with a 1'41.522, cleanly passed Rea before turn one. Razgatlioglu took a sweeping line through turn eleven but Rea had the drive out of turn ten and the hill to hold speed underneath and take the lead. Scott Redding set a 1'41.519 as he kept on the pace. The leading trio were once again in a different race, with Andrea Locatelli over two and a half seconds off the leaders, then three and a half as Loris Baz and Alvaro Bautista caught up. 

On lap nine, Redding tried a pass into turn one, tagging Razgatlioglu's slider with his left wing as a gentle hello, but Razgatlioglu switched back to hold second place as Jonathan Rea set a 1'41.309 in the lead. 

At half race distance, Jonathan Rea led Toprak Razgatlioglu and Scott Redding with Andrea Locatelli four and a half seconds behind. Toprak Razgatlioglu then mimicked Jonathan Rea's crash from yesterday, throwing his Yamaha into the gravel trap at high speed, the front mudguard inexplicably exploding to cause the crash. Jonathan Rea led Scott Redding by over a second.

Andrea Locatelli inherited the last podium place, but Loris Baz was on his tail, closing fast and looking for a way past, with Alvaro Bautista right behind the pair as they started lap thirteen. Alvaro Bautista slipstreamed the pair but overshot the line through turn one and Loris Baz powered under the pair to take third place, five seconds behind Scott Redding who was almost three seconds off Jonathan Rea's lead.

At the start of lap fifteen of nineteen, Jonathan Rea led Scott Redding by three seconds and behind Redding, Loris Baz was dealing with Alvaro Bautista, with Bautista laking third from him into turn one, but missing the exit again to let Baz back through. Andrea Locatelli was over a second behind in fifth place. Lap sixteen, Bautista tried an outside line into turn one, leaning on Baz but Baz held the apex to come out in front yet again. Lap seventeen, Bautista tried an inside line and overshot the exit again, and Baz took third place back for the fourth or fifth lap in a row. Lap eighteen, Baz held enough of a gap onto the straight that Bautista could only catch him and not try a pass into turn one. Loris Baz went wide onto turn five and Bautista took third place, but went wide, as always, but this time as Baz snuck under Bautista, the Honda man was able to close the exit sooner. Baz on the apex hit Bautista as their lines intersected. Baz and Bautista hit hard and Bautista crashed out from the impact, shaking his fist at a rapidly receding Baz.

Jonathan Rea won over five seconds clear of Scott Redding, with Loris Baz three and a half seconds further back. Andrea Locatelli, over a second clear of Garrett Gerloff, took fourth place. The results were immediately declared uncertain as an investigation was opened in to the Baz/Bautista racing incident, but Baz's podium was quickly confirmed. 

Jonathan Rea found the spot Razgatlioglu cleaned with the broom yesterday and spewed rubber all over it to dirty it up with a burnout. Rea's win and Razgatlioglu's DNF put red within twenty four points of Razgatlioglu. Scott Redding's second place put himself within fifty four points of Razgatlioglu's lead and thirty points off Rea and one hundred and twenty four points up for grabs. Loris Baz's three podiums this weekend, with plenty of action to focus on, should put him on a lot of teams' lists for 2022. 

Two weekends remain in this championship fight, and it's still open to three riders.
