WSBK Nuerburgring results

Another day of unstable weather conditions made for two interesting races today at the Nuerburgring.

Race 1 was restarted due to rain, but then subsequently declared a dry race, and saw Troy Bayliss (Ducati Xerox) caught up in a fantastic battle for victory against the Yamaha rider Noriyuki Haga. Haga eventually took the win with Bayliss coming home in second and Neukirchner in third.

In Race 2, Bayliss again made a strong start and fought this time against not just one, but both factory Yamaha riders, Haga and Corser. The race was brought to its conclusion five laps ahead of schedule due to rain, which meant that Bayliss and Fabrizio concluded proceedings in fourth and sixth positions respectively.

Results:

Race 1: 1. Haga (Yamaha); 2. Bayliss (Ducati Xerox); 3. Neukirchner (Suzuki)
Race 2: 1. Haga (Yamaha); 2. Corser (Yamaha); 3. Neukirchner (Suzuki)
