Kawasaki files counter appeal – third place podium back in Tom Sykes hands

After Aprilia’s appeal regarding Tom Sykes off track excursion and cutting the Roggia chicane during the final lap in race 2 at Monza, the race direction after viewing the footage decided that Sylvain Guintoli deserved third place.
However, what seemed the final word has now taken on a new twist and very similar to what happened between Marc Marquez and Pol Espargaro in the 2012 Moto2 race at Barcelona.

Kawasaki filed a counter appeal with the FIM Stewards and after several more hours of reviewing the footage overturned the race direction ruling, giving Sykes back his third place and demoting Guintoli back to fourth again, ruling that the British rider did not take advantage when he returned to track in front of the French rider.

Aprilia now has five days to appeal.
