2011 Donington World Supersport: Results

World Supersport

Separated by only 0.270 of a second at the checkered flag, Luca Scassa and Chaz Davies gave the Yamaha ParkingGO team its first 1-2 World Supersport win at Donington Sunday.

It was Scassa who just beat his teammate on the YZF-R6; the Italian now has a perfect 50 points, and Parkes is in second with 31.

Taking the final podium spot was Step Racing Honda CBR600RR rider Gino Rea. Rounding out he top five were Robbin Harms (Harms Benjan Racing Honda) and Kawasaki Motocard.com rider Broc Parkes, respectively.

Luca Scassa (Yamaha ParkinGO Team) says: “I didn’t expect Chaz to be quite so strong going by this morning’s warm up times but he really surprised me with such an impressive performance. I had a perfect start off the grid.

“I would have settled for second but obviously was much happier with a win. We have won two races out of two and that’s impressive. I’m very satisfied with my bike and team. We are proving to have the best overall package so I’m extremely pleased with this.”

Chaz Davies (Yamaha ParkinGO Team) says: “A One Two win for the team is an amazing result. This shows how strong the package is. With four laps to go I closed in on Luca and tried to get the nose in wherever I could but he was so consistently strong everywhere that it was difficult to pin him at any one point.

“I had a stab at passing him on the last lap but didn’t succeed. I envisioned two blue bikes on the ground and that’s certainly not what we wanted. I want to thank Yamaha and all my team who have worked very hard to make up for the disappointing race in Phillip Island. ”
