Rabat just outside the points zone in WorldSBK race 2 at Phillip Island

The first 2024 WorldSBK round has concluded today at Phillip Island in Australia. In cool and sunny conditions, Kawasaki Puccetti Racing rider Tito Rabat took part in the Superpole Race and Race 2. Yesterday the Spaniard finished twentieth in Superpole before crossing the line eighteenth in Race 1.

This morning Tito started from the seventh row of the grid in the Superpole race, which ran over a distance of ten laps, and finished in nineteenth place.

Race 2 was suspended on lap four after a crash for another rider. The restarted race consisted of only eleven laps, at the end of which Rabat crossed the line sixteenth, just missing out on the points zone.

The next WorldSBK round will take place on 22-24 March at the Barcelona-Catalunya circuit in Spain.

Tito Rabat

“Today we completed two short races in which we didn’t much time to make up positions. In the Superpole Race I didn’t find good pace while in Race 2, thanks also to a change that the team made to the bike, I was able to move up to sixteenth but, more importantly, was able to maintain a good pace. We’re working hard and will continue to do so in the tests we’ll complete in March, which will hopefully see us take another step forward. I want to thank the team for all their hard work this weekend”.
