The MIE Racing Althea Honda team has completed round four of the Superbike World Championship at the Motorland Aragón circuit in Alcañiz, Spain.
At 11am riders Takumi Takahashi and Lorenzo Gabellini lined up for the short Superpole race which ran in warm and sunny conditions. Over the ten-lap sprint, Takumi and Lorenzo both ran a solitary race, unable to do battle with other riders. Struggling to keep pace with the rest of the field, Takahashi crossed the line twentieth, followed by team-mate Gabellini in twenty-first position.
The weekend’s final Superbike race got underway at 2pm and it proved to be another challenging one for the MIE Racing Althea Honda riders. The pair were able to make up a couple of positions apiece over the course of the 18-lap race but again found themselves lapping largely alone, finishing the race in eighteenth (Takahashi) and nineteenth (Gabellini) place respectively.
