The Triple M Honda World Superbike team arrived at the favourite circuit of PJ Jacobsen – and a home circuit for some of the team staff – ready to record two strong results with their CBR1000RR. The rookie team in WorldSBK found this weekend a particularly tough one, with no championship points to add to PJ’s current total.

Jacobsen had been 17th in Superpole 1 on Saturday, shortly before race one began at 13.00 local time in Italy. He rode most of his first Misano Superbike race in 16th place but could not achieve the pace or finishing position both he and his team had hoped for.

Morning warm-up on Sunday saw PJ 17th, but in the second 21-lap race of the weekend he felt his bike misfire and, out of the points scoring positions at that time, he came back into the pits to retire.  

Jacobsen remains 19th in the championship rankings, with 21 points, and has a personal best of tenth, which he achieved at Buriram in the second round.

A very long summer break will be punctuated for PJ with a ride at the Suzuka 8-Hour race, and then a test at Portimao before the next round of the championship takes place at the Portuguese venue. Round ten of WorldSBK 2018 will be held between the 14th and 16th of September.

I thought that coming here to Misano, and it being my favourite track, it would be a more positive weekend. Now we have a long summer break and the Suzuka 8-Hour race. Then we have a test at Portimao before the last four race weekends. I need to make a big change at the Portimao test and then I will be happy. Things were just not working today but I am positive and we will look ahead to the next race.

This weekend was a challenge for us, PJ never found the rhythm, for many reasons. The pace was good this morning in the warm up, so we expected a better performance in the race, which was not there. He said that the bike was misfiring in race 2 so now we are checking things. For sure this is not the position that we deserve, or where we must be. Testing in Portimao will be important for us, so we can work on the bikes before then and find out what we can do to get back to where we were at the start of the season. The performance does not reflect what it is possible to do with this bike.
