Biaggi cruises to seventh win of season

Corser pushed on, eager to respond to Biaggi, but would only be successful in running too deep at the Quercia left-hander and allowing Checa to sneak past.

Assuming the mantle for chaser, Checa immediately began to apply pressure to Biaggi, but the experienced Italian would not be denied, the 39-year-old crossing the line to record his seventh win – his third on home soil this year.

Checa's second went some way to making up for his Miller double DNF disaster, while Corser was left a rather frustrated third, the BMW rider disappointed not to win but happy with what remains only the team's second WSBK podium.

Fabrizio came home a quiet fourth at Ducati's home track, while Guintoli put in his best result since the Phillip Island opener in fifth.

His Suzuki team-mate Haslam, however, didn't fare so well, the Briton getting as high as sixth before being overtaken by a charging Leon Camier – up from 14th on the grid – mid-race, while Haga would go on to re-pass on the very final lap.

Shane Byrne and James Toseland were others to make some gains on their lowly grid spots in ninth and tenth, ahead of Luca Scassa – who worked his way up to 11th having dipped as low as 17th at one stage – and Lorenzo Lanzi.

Rea's weekend continued to go from bad to worse, the Ulsterman's early rally the only highlight as he steadily slipped down the order to an eventual 13th. His team-mate Max Neukirchner followed him in 14th, while Tom Sykes rounded out the points' paying positions in 15th.

er, Cal...forget that Tech 3 ride. The nice thing about WSBK is there is no age limit. It would be interesting to see Max enter a MotoGP race with the Aprilia. Bet he would like to beat some Hondas. Say, this would be a way to liven up the MotoGP events and enlarge the grid. Each race a wild card entry from WSBKs most successful would be invited to participate for a generous purse. Too bad the race dates this time of year conflict.

If Max and Aprilia can win here then surely they can win anywhere. Get Checa on a factory bike. BMW nearly there. How about Corser-Checa for next year? And bravo Sylvain!
