BMW wins it's first superbike race

Marco Melandri won the fist WSBK race at Donington. Leon Haslam took second, it was a BMW one two. The second race was almost the same until Honda mounted Jonathan Rea took out Haslam & Melandri near the final turn. Both races were run in the dry, it was some of the best racing I have see so far this year.

I had hoped for Haslam to get BMW there first win. Both races were some really great riding.
