Cal Crutchlow and Max Biaggi take wins on final day

Cal Crutchlow (Yamaha Sterilgarda) and Max Biaggi (Aprilia Alitalia) shared the race wins this weekend, the last one of the 2010 season.

The action did not disappoint even if the championship was decided last weekend in favour of Biaggi, and throughout the field the final championship ranking places were still up for grabs.

Max helped win the Manufacturers’ Championship for Aprilia, and in winning race two took his overall win score in 2010 to an appropriate ten. Aprilia won the Manufacturers’ title by 47 points.

Race one podium man Leon Haslam (Suzuki Alstare) ended his season with 376 points to Biaggi’s 451, but Carlos Checa (Althea Racing) ended up moving into third, despite the brave efforts in race one of injured rider Jonathan Rea (Hannspree Ten Kate Honda) who had to pull out of race two.

Checa now finishes with 297 points, Rea has 292 and after taking a win and a second today, Crutchlow is fifth, only eight points behind Rea. Noriyuki Haga ended his final day in his current team sixth in the standings, on 258 points.

Despite being excluded from race one for ignoring a ride-through penalty, Sylvain Guintoli (Suzuki Alstare) went fourth in race two and seventh overall. He ended his rookie WSBK season two points ahead of race two podium finisher, Michel Fabrizio (Ducati Xerox). James Toseland (Yamaha Sterilgarda) dropped to overall ninth, after two no-scores today.

Tenth in the rankings was Shane Byrne (Althea Racing Ducati) after Troy Corser (BMW Motorrad Motorsport) no scored today, and finished 11th. Tom Sykes was top Kawasaki rider again, in today’s races and the championship itself, taking his official Kawasaki Racing Team machine to 14th in the rankings.
