After only two rounds of the 2016 #superstock1000 FIM Cup the all-new #kawasaki #ninjazx10r took its first podium finish in the hands of Frenchman Jeremy Guarnoni (Pedercini #racing Kawasaki) at Assen. Guarnoni was second, for what was his 12th career Superstock top three finish.
After two attempted race starts the third and final one developed into a nine lap race. Guarnoni led the chasing group behind the eventual race winner at the right moment and scored 20 important points. After an unlucky no-score in the first race in Aragon two weeks ago Guarnoni has risen to fourth in the championship, with a seven rounds to go.
MTM / HS #kawasaki rider and local competitor at Assen Wayne Tessels was next best #kawasaki finisher at Assen, in seventh place. His British team-mate Gregg Black was one place behind.
Rob Hartog (Team Hartog Jenik Against Cancer Kawasaki) was tenth, placing four #kawasaki Ninja machines in the top ten despite a sometimes-difficult weekend for all, due to weather factors and red flag stoppages.
Bryan Staring (Agro-on Benjan Kawasaki) opted for what turned out to be the wrong tyre choice and finished his race 19th, one place behind his team-mate David McFadden.
The next Superstock round for the new #ninjazx10r comes along at Imola, Italy, with raceday on Sunday May 1.
Jeremy Guarnoni stated: “I am really happy for this race because I had some difficult moments in Motorland Aragon and earlier this weekend. We made a great job and the bike worked well. I had a difficult start but I think if I had started near the front I could have fought with Raffaele De Rosa for the win. I am happy for #kawasaki and Team Pedercini because they work so hard and never give up. Nine laps was a sprint so you have to be very aggressive and pass as quickly as possible.”
