Disappointment for Smith and Pata Honda in Misano

Pata Honda rider Kyle Smith was unable to start today`s eighth-round World Supersport championship race at Misano World Circuit in Italy, which was won by French rider Jules Clusel. Series leader Kenan Sofuoglu crashed out of third place on the final lap, eventually coming home 11th, while Honda CBR600RR rider, PJ Jacobsen, finished second.

Smith crashed out of yesterday afternoon`s qualifying early and was unable to secure a grid position higher than 11th. However, the 23-year-old British rider demonstrated the pace shown earlier in the weekend by finishing this morning`s warm-up in fifth place.

Unfortunately, as Smith went to the grid on his sighting lap for this afternoon`s 19-lap race, a technical problem prevented him from completing the lap. His crew are still investigating the reason for the issue.

The World Supersport championship will re-group in Sepang, Malaysia for the next round on 2 August, when Smith and his crew will be hoping for better luck than they experienced in Italy this weekend.
