May 30, 2016

So much satisfaction comes from the category Stock1000 however, where the Althea BMW team and Raffaele De Rosa rider dominated the race, to get their second win of the season and consolidate the leadership of the overall standings. 

Starting from pole, De Rosa has defended well in the first corner to take the lead right away. The Althea BMW was the author of a masterful race, in which he continued to increase his lead lap after lap, thanks to a very fast pace. Raffaele clocked the fastest lap of the race in 1'29.800 and half or so, a gap of more than 3/2 had already built against its pursuers.Never bothered by the other riders, De Rosa crossed the finish line in first position, with as many as 3.3 seconds ahead of the second, Leandro Mercado. 

Thanks to today's result, De Rosa consolidates its leadership in the overall standings, with 82 points, ahead of Mercado second with 77. 



Solid sixth place for the Honda rider in Donington. The Brit is now sixth in the standings of the 600cc class.
