Pembalap Kawasaki, Jonathan Rea, Berhasil Menduduki Posisi Pertama Klasmen WSBK di Thailand

Jonathan Rea, pembalap Kawasaki berhasil menduduki posisi pertama WSBK putaran kedua, yang dilakukan di Chang International Circuit di Buriram, Thailand, Minggu 22 Maret  lalu. Bersama ZX-10R, Rea mampu mencapai posisi pertama saat finish race 1 dan race 2, mengalahkan pembalap Aprilia, Leon Haslam. Hal ini menambah poin Rea dan membuatnya berhasil menduduki posisi pertama di putaran kedua WSBK 2015. Rea berhasil mengumpulkan poin sebanyak 95, sementara Haslam yang menduduki posisi pertama klasmen WSBK putaran pertama di Philip Island lalu, bertengger diposisi kedua dengan poin 85. Pada race pertama Rea mencatat waktu 1’34s, dan mampu mencatat the new lap record pada race kedua, yaitu 1’33.817. Sementara itu Tom Sykes, yang juga merupakan pembalap Kawasaki menduduki posisi tak jauh dari Rea, yaitu posisi ke tiga dengan poin 50. 


“For me it has been a perfect weekend with pole position and two race wins – we could not have asked for any more. The bike can always be better but at the beginning of the weekend the Ninja ZX-10R was at a really good level, my pace was really fast, the rhythm was good so we did not necessarily chase something we really could have got lost with. Our base setting right now is good and it gives me confidence to push the boundaries and understand the bike. I have not had so many double wins in my career but I have been lucky to have some. They do not come around a lot so I want to savour this moment and reflect on what we have done tomorrow and enjoy these next few days.” – Jonathan Rea


“First podium of the year in the opening race so we are heading in the right direction. One step at a time and podium finish was not so bad considering the feeling I had with the bike. I am not able to do exactly what I want yet. When it is like that you have no answer for guys who have finished in front of you. We tried everything we could and in the end third position was acceptable for where we are at the moment. I got caught up in turn three of the first lap in race two and got dropped back a bit as a result. We had some small issues after that and corner entry was a little bit difficult to manage. We will keep working and try to improve the bike.” - Tom Sykes
