Eugene Laverty has excelled in many areas since he first came into the World Superbike fold after two fruitful years in World Supersport racing.
At Donington World Superbike, he was also on course for good raceday results but a big crash in race one almost scuppered his weekend in its entirety.
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.
The outstandingly close finish to the Phillip Island Supersport World Championship race last weekend was, remarkable as it sounds, a return to business as usual in this class.
The top three World Supersport riders were covered by only 0.033 seconds after 21-laps of action, but close finishes are something of a specialty in Australia.
