Although not quite as spectacular as Race 1, the second race at Donington Park was perhaps more important at this early stage of the championship. Carlos Checa's third win of the season allowed him to increase his championship lead, while Max Biaggi was left empty handed after being black flagged. This left the door open for Marco Melandri, who is now second in points after his second place finish in the race. Completing the podium was Leon Camier, the only home rider to reach the rostrum.

Jump Start for Biaggi - Leon Haslam got another great start on his BMW, while Biaggi was immediately cited for a jump start. When the Italian failed to come into the pits for his ride through penalty, he was eventually black flagged, completing a very difficult weekend for the reigning world champion.

Up at the front, Carlos Checa quickly made his way into the lead and opened up a small gap. This left Melandri, Camier and Haslam fighting for 2nd place, with the Italian eventually making his way forward. Shortly thereafter, a mistake from Haslam dropped him out of the podium fight, leaving the Yamaha and Aprilia riders alone to try and track down Checa.

Melandri Doesn't Repeat - The stage was set for the Italian to try and chase down Checa's Ducati, just as he had with Smrz's Ducati in race 1, but the Spaniard was simply too consistent. On couple of occasions it looked at though Melandri might have a chance, but in the end the gap never really fell below two seconds. Camier made a brief attempt to challenge Melandri for second place, but when the Aprilia rider's tires began to fade, he smartly settled for the final podium spot.

The championship standings now see Carlos Checa leading with 91 points, followed by Marco Melandri with 72, Leon Haslam on 53, and Max Biaggi with 49.

The next WSBK Race is scheduled for April 17th, at Assen.

Purtroppo anche le storie piu' belle finiscono, ma ti lasciano un sacco di bei ricordi, tanti momenti paragonabili a quel primo bacio che ci siamo dati sull'erba di Welkome, dove lei mi ha guardato dritto negli occhi e mi ha detto TI AMO. VR46
