The WSBK paddock makes their first stop in Europe after starting the season with 2 fly away races. They arrive at Aragon with Johnny Rea leading the championship by a good margin. Last season both races were dominated by British riders in Race 1 Johnny Rea narrowly beat out Chaz Davies for the win with Tom Sykes coming in 3rd. Race 2 saw Chaz gain revenge on Johnny securing a dominant win Leon Haslam was the man in 3rd this time.
Aragon has been on the WSBK calender since 2011. It is best known for the stone wall back drop that is seen when the riders go through turn 14 and 15.

After the first 2 rounds it has been Kawasaki dominance with Johnny Rea taking 3 wins and Tom Sykes taking 1 last time out in Thailand Johnny had a good round at Aragon last season and will hope to continue that this season, Sykes meanwhile will hope to improve on his Solitary 3rd from last year. Chaz Davies has always performed well at Aragon he achieved his first ever WSBK race win and double race win here in 2013 he also achieved the first win for the Ducati Panigale here last season. Nicky Hayden seems to be settling into the class and Aragon is another circuit he knows well from his GP days look for him to have another strong weekend along with his Honda team mate Michael Van Der Mark who is becoming a real star in the WSBK grid and should be on the watch list of any Moto GP fans out there.
