Donington tumbles

Parkalgar Honda’s latest outing in England for the 10th round of the World Supersport Championship saw rising star Eugene Laverty stage an amazing recovery to take the chequered flag in fifth position.

The Northern Irishman was vying for the lead when a crash relegated him to 26th and last place in the Donington Park race- yet he picked himself up to finish amongst the points behind winner and title favourite Cal Crutchlow. Team mate Miguel Praia was less fotunate however, a subsequent and similar tumble forcing the Albufeira rider into retirement.
