2014 STK 1000 Round 6. Jerez

Agro-On Wil Racedays Honda rider Kyle Smith took his Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade SP to a stunning second place in Sunday’s sixth round Superstock 1000 FIM Cup at Jerez in Spain.

After a red flag in the first scheduled 15 lap race, the restart was reduced to a 10-lap sprint with British rider Smith raring to go after qualifying in fifth place yesterday. He battled spectacularly with eventual race winner Leandro Mercado, finishing just 1.6s down on the series leader.

Smith’s Racedays Honda team-mate Josh Day from the USA put in a solid performance to take sixth place at the flag to put both riders in top ten championship positions with the final round at Magny-Cours on 5 Octber.

Kyle Smith – Superstock 1000, P2

It’s been quite difficult all weekend working on the set-up and we ended up trying something drastically different for the race. But I got a decent start in the second part of the race, which was quite short after the red flag and, although we all had some problems with grip, we got a great result and I’m really happy.
