Superstock 1000 European Championship at Assen (The Netherlands) - Day2

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Markus Reiterberger (alpha Racing-Van Zon-BMW) grabbed his third consecutive European Superstock 1000 Championship win, second this season, with a dominant display at TT Circuit Assen. The German, starting from pole, controlled the race right from the start and gave his rivals no option, completing a fabulous weekend in which he was the fastest in practice, qualifying, and had the best in-race lap. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Behind him, Roberto Tamburini (Berclaz Racing Team SA), whilst unable to match Reiterberger’s impressive pace, scored another second-place finish and remains just 10 points off the championship lead. Maximilian Scheib (Aprilia Racing Team), who rivalled Reiterberger at MotorLand Aragon before an untimely mechanical error at the end kicked him off the podium, returned to the top in third. Fourth, just behind him, was Federico Sandi (MOTOCORSA Racing), tying both men in the standings. Last year’s poleman Florian Marino (URBIS Yamaha Motoxracing STK Team) came in

Markus Reiterberger (alpha Racing-Van Zon-BMW) stormed to a second successive pole position of the season, as the European 1000 Superstock Championship moves to Assen for the second race of the season. Victorious at MotorLand Aragon, Reiterberger showed impressive dominance throughout the session, running consistently in the mid-1’36s while his closest rivals barely managed to make it under 1’37. The first five positions from the starting grid at the Spanish Round were repeated, with Roberto Tamburini (Berclaz Racing Team SA) making it in ahead of Federico Sandi (Motocorsa Racing) by just one thousandth of a second, in second and third respectively. As in Aragon, Maximilian Scheib (Aprilia Racing Team) made it through the checkered flag with the fourth best time and will hope to compete for the win again, after an electronic error derailed his bid last weekend. Jan Buhn (alpha Racing-Van Zon-BMW) qualifies in fifth position, hoping to score his

European Superstock 1000 at Aragon (Spain) - Day2

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Markus Reiterberger (alpha Racing-Van Zon-BMW, photo1) recorded his second consecutive win in the European Superstock 1000 Championship in the inaugural race of the 2018 season. After closing last year on the top step of the podium at Jerez, the new season opened with a similar picture, the German making the best of his pole position to start to cross in first place. It didn’t come easy for Reiterberger, however, with Maximilian Scheib (Aprilia Racing Team) getting past Reiterberger and controlling long stretches of the race. The Chilean was eventually overtaken by Reiterberger and nearly had his race spoiled by a technical failure, his bike momentarily coming to a near stop with just one lap to go. Scheib managed to make it to the end of the race in fourth position. Accompanying Reiterberger on the podium were Roberto Tamburini (Barclaz Racing Team SA) in second and Federico Sandi (MOTOCORSA Racing) in
