WSBK Round 7 Miller – Spies conquers Race 1, twice

It was Ben Spies who dominated Race 1 at Miller Motorsports Park with a massive 9.
3 second victory ahead of Carlos Checa (last year’s double winner) to score his fifth WSBK win.
Third place went to Michel Fabrizio on aggregate timing.

Ben Spies had been dominating race 1 in front of Ryuichi Kiyonari, when the race had to be red flagged after 7 laps when Karl Muggeridge highsided that left him and his bike in the middle of the track.

Scoring would be taken at the fifth lap, where the entire field had completed, thus allowing Shinya Nakano who crashed just before the red flag to return for the second leg.

On the second heat of race 1, Spies didn’t get the same start and was beaten into the first turn by Kiyonari, but that wouln’t last for long, because the Texan overtook him and began his runaway race and set a new race record with a 1:48.
965 that gave him 1.
477 secs.
lead and 5.
5 for the race on the first flying lap and that left no hope for the rest of the field.

Jonathan Rea rode an impressive race to finish third, but on aggregate timing dropped to fifth place.
Third spot went to a hard charging Michel Fabrizio who pushed his way past Max Biaggi and Ryuichi Kiyonari on the closing laps.
Kiyonari eventually finished sixth, but fourth overall.
Noriyuki Haga suffering from back pain following his massive highside on Saturday to take ninth overall.
