2013 World SBK Photos from Laguna Seca

Ultimate MotorCycling contributor Ara Ashjian was at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca last weekend for the US round of the 2013 World Superbike Championship.

From the track to the pits, and all the beautiful grid girls in between, Ashjian once again captured some unique images of the World SBK Championship; the photo gallery is attached above.

And just as the photography shows, the racing was intense at Laguna Seca, the Californian circuit that features the legendary Corkscrew.

The crashed-strewn race one went to Kawasaki Racing Team’s Tom Sykes. Due to two red flags, the 26-lap contest was completed in 12 laps. Joining the Brit on the race-one podium was BMW GoldBet’s Chaz Davies and Aprilia Racing’s Eugene Laverty.

In race two, Laverty would work his way up to the front to take the lead off Sykes, who led most of the race. Laverty would take the win ahead of Aprilia Racing’s Davide Giugliano and BMW GoldBet’s Marco Melandri, both who also passed Sykes in the closing stages of the race.

Sykes would take fourth, and leave Laguna Seca with a 23-point lead over Laverty, who moved one point ahead of his teammate, Sylvain Guintoli.
