Kiyonari apologises to Byrne after Oulton Park clash

Kiyonari apologises to Byrne after Oulton Park clash

Kiyonari and his Buildbase BMW.

RYUICHI Kiyonari has apologised to Shane ‘Shakey’ Byrne regarding the incident that brought both of them crashing down and out of Oulton Park’s race two yesterday.

On the 16th lap of race two, Kiyonari and Byrne were battle for the lead, but it ended prematurely as the Japanese rider clipped the rear wheel of Byrne as they went into Hizzy’s and the pair crashed out of the race.

Kiyonari explained: “It felt unbelievably good and I was more confident. I had been enjoying a good battle with Shakey until the crash; it was like last year again! Into Hizzys our entry speed was completely different and I carried more speed, but I don’t want to use an excuse. 

“All I was thinking was ‘go Shakey, go’, when I just touched the brake, then I thought ‘no, no, no’. I was in pain when I hit the ground, but I feel ok. All I can say is that I am sorry to Shakey, our teams and the fans. We would have had more battles and I destroyed that. I went and apologised after the race.”

Byrne said: “I was feeling confident and really happy and I waited until two thirds race distance and then I wanted to make some moves.

“I put two moves on Kiyo and the second one was much more decisive. I went into Hizzys and for a moment I thought I had just run in with a bit too much back brake on and spun the bike around.

“Then as I was rolling through the grass I noticed Kiyo’s bike come flying passed and I thought ‘ah, that wasn’t the case’. It is what it is. I have an awful lot of respect and admiration for Kiyo as a rider and I know full well that would have been the last thing he intended.

“I also know how bad it feels for those split seconds before the collision because you make a decision and you don’t get a choice to back out of it, you know straight away it isn’t going to work and wish you could disappear or the ground would swallow you up before you hit the other person.

“He has been around and said sorry. It is a bit frustrating as I felt I had that win in the bag but at the same time I am over the moon for the PBM team and Stuart as I was cheering him from the wall at Hizzys.”

The fourth round of the 2015 British Superbike Championship takes place at Snetterton on June 21.

Jerez MotoGP test times

Jerez MotoGP test times

Lorenzo leaving Movistar Yamaha garage.

MOVISTAR Yamaha’s Jorge Lorenzo ended the official test at Jerez at the top of the time sheets after dominating the Spanish Grand Prix.

At the first official mid-season MotoGP test in Jerez, Lorenzo dominated once again and completed a lap at 1:38.516 – on his 28th birthday.

Team-mate Valentino Rossi finished only four-hundredths of a second behind and set his best time of the weekend. The team did not have any major updates at this test and both riders focused on the set-up of their bikes.

CWM LCR Honda’s Cal Crutchlow finished the test in third, just over 0.3s behind Lorenzo. The team tested new suspension parts and primarily worked on the electronics package of the RC213V.  

Aleix Espargaro completed 63 laps and finished fourth fastest after attempting to solve the chatter issue which has caused a problem for the previous three races.

Repsol Honda’s Marc Marquez only completed 31 laps and tried out a new swing-arm and ended the day in fifth, 0.460s behind Lorenzo. The Spaniard only tested for two hours due to fatigue from his injury. 

Completing the top six was Monster Yamaha Tech 3’s Bradley Smith, who beat his time from qualifying. The Brit put in 41 laps and finished three-tenths ahead of his team-mate Pol Espargaro.

Many of the Open class teams concentrated on the set-up of their Magneti Marelli electronics package. In particular, Avintia Racing’s Hector Barbera had new parts which effectively turns his Open GP14 into a 14.1.

Aprilia Racing Team Gresini have had a difficult time so far in the MotoGP paddock, but debuted their full seamless-shift gearbox with Alvaro Bautitsta, while Marc Melandri tested a new swing-arm and chassis. Melandri finished last, in 22nd place, but Bautista made progress to end the day 1.2s behind Lorenzo.

Hickman withdraws from NW200 due to injury

Hickman withdraws from NW200 due to injury

PETER Hickman has reluctantly withdrawn from the forthcoming North West 200 road races due to injuries sustained in a crash at Oulton Park on Saturday.

The Lincolnshire rider sustained two broken ribs in a 150mph crash on the approach to Druids on Saturday during a wet British Superbike Free Practice at Oulton Park. He has also been diagnosed with two breaks of the C4 vertebrae in his neck. 

Both the team and Hickman are now unable to participate in the first International road race of the season, on Tuesday May 12. The 27-year-old made an excellent debut in the NW200 last year and recorded the fastest ever lap by a newcomer. 

Briggs Equipment BMW Team Owner Lee Hardy said: “It’s deeply disappointing for Peter and everyone connected with the team that we’ll be unable to take part in the North West 200 but his injuries from the crash on Saturday are a little bit worse than we first thought.

“Having had such a good debut 12 months ago, Peter was obviously really looking forward to returning so we’d like to apologise to Mervyn and his team, as well as all the thousands of race fans that we won’t be there in 2015.”

“The goal now is to support Peter as best as we can and ensure he gets the best possible medical support with the aim of being ready for the TT. He needs to get as much rest and recuperation as he can and the final decision will ultimately lie with his surgeon but we’re very hopeful of being ready for practice week at the Isle of Man.

“I’d also like to publicly thank the on-site medical team at Oulton Park for all their excellent treatment and support given to Peter after his accident.”

The nature of these injuries means it is just not possible to ride and therefore Hickman will now aim to be fully fit and ready for the Isle of Man TT Races which commence on Saturday 30th May.
