LeoVince tops in World Superbike

Phillip Island Race Report

WSBK racing returned in 2010 with the first FIM World Superbike and World Supersport competitions occurring last weekend at Phillip Island, Australia. LeoVince riders claim first place in both World Superbike and World
Supersport at Phillip Island.

Things started to look very good for Carlos Checa when he was sitting in first place, provisional pole, after Friday’s qualifying session.

On Sunday’s Superbike race no. 2, Althea Racing’s Carlos Checa, aboard his privateer Ducati 1098R, was able to make a last lap pass on Leon Haslam and win the race by a .307 seconds margin. This is an incredible way to launch the season for Althea Racing and LeoVince SBK.

In World Supersport, Eugene Laverty, aboard his LeoVince SBK equipped Parklagar CBR600RR, led the race before and after the red flag. Laverty was also able to successfully set the fastest lap of the race, recording a 1.35.204 on lap six.

LeoVince would like to thank all of its riders and competitors worldwide for such a successful debut to the beginning of the 2010 FIM World Superbike and World Supersport Championships.

LeoVince’s focus now shifts to the AMA and the beginning round, including the historic Daytona 200, taking place this week at Daytona International Speedway, Daytona Beach Florida.
