2015 Laguna Seca World Superbike

The 2015 World Superbike Championship made its only stateside visit two weeks ago at Laguna Seca Mazda Raceway, a short 2.2-mile circuit near Monterey, Calif, featuring the iconic Corkscrew.

Kawasaki Racing Team’s Jonathan Rea entered 2015 Laguna Seca World Superbike with 11 of 16 race wins and the points lead. When the double header wrapped up, he retained the points lead. But his winless record at Laguna Seca remains.

Rea would pilot his Ninja ZX-10R to third in both races, which were carbon copies of each other. Earning second was the 2013 World Superbike Champion Tom Sykes, and taking the wins at Laguna Seca was Ducati Team’s Chaz Davies.
