World Superbike riders head to the 2015 Isle of Man TT

1 Mins read

Five of the leading riders in the World Superbike Championship will make an appearance at the 2015 Isle of Man TT on a special parade lap.

Kawasaki duo, Tom Sykes and Jonathan Rea, will be joined by Chas Davies, Leon Camier and 2014 champion, Sylvain Guintoli on the parade lap around the famous circuit.

Sykes and Rea head to the event following a great battle in the British round of the WSBK season at Donington Park last weekend. The pair fought back and forth for the lead of the race, with Sykes eventually getting the better of the championship leader.

Rea has a commanding 101-point lead over Leon Haslam in the championship and is well on his way to a first WSBK title.

The Kawasaki teammates were joined on the podium in both races by Davies on the Ducati machine. The 2011 World Supersport champion currently sits fourth in the championship, with one race win to his name in 2015.

Reigning Champion, Guintoli, hasn’t enjoyed the same success since his move to the Pata Honda team and currently finds himself sixth in championship.

Camier has been making progress throughout the season on-board the MV Agusta, finishing a season-best ninth in the first race at Donington.  The 2009 British Superbike champion was chasing a top-six finish in race two before crashing out of the race at the Foggy Esses.

The parade itself takes on Wednesday June 10 which is the same day as the TT Zero race, the second Supersport race and the second Sidecar race of the event.

Qualifying for the Lightweight and Senior TT races are also scheduled to take place on June 10.

Following the parade around the circuit, the WSBK riders will head towards the VIP Hospitality suite to meet fans who have purchased VIP tickets.
