Melandri and Rea win at Donington
Marco Melandri and Jonathan Rea claimed race wins in the World Superbikes meeting at Donington on Sunday afternoon.
Melandri led home a one-two for the Motorrad Motorsport Team as he edged out team-mate Leon Haslam by 0.728 seconds.
Tom Sykes (Kawasaki Racing Team), who started on pole, came home third with Rea finishing strongly to take fourth on the Honda.
Championship leader Max Biaggi (Aprilia Racing) was fifth.
Rea came through an incident-packed race two to claim his second race win of the season.
He took advantage of Haslam and Melandri both running wide and coming off at the final corner to nip in and take the lead.
Biaggi came home second, just over half a second behind, with Sykes taking another third place.
Leon Camier (Fixi Crescent Suzuki) was fourth and Sylvain Guintoli (Team Effenbert Liberty Racing) fifth.
The two podium finishes saw Sykes close the gap on Biaggi in the championship standings to five points.
