Podium For Sofuoglu As Krummenacher Keeps Championship Lead

160418_09

Weather issues affected many aspects of the Assen FIM Supersport World Championship round but Kawasaki Puccetti Racing team-mates Kenan Sofuoglu and Randy Krummenacher performed strongly in the eventual six lap wet race to record third and fourth place finishes respectively. Randy still leads the championship, with Kenan second in the points after four rounds.

The wet conditions found during Friday practice proved to be useful in the final six-lap WSS race at Assen. The scheduled 18-lap race had started dry but at around half race distance heavy rain appeared and the red flags were brought out to stop the race. A re-run was called, of only six laps duration, with that ‘second’ wet race being the only one that counted in the results. Full championship points were awarded.

Krummenacher led the race for the first two laps until Sofuoglu went past him. Krummenacher was to lose track position at the chicane and run off track, dropping back and finally matching the leading pace. Just too far back to try and get back into contention for the podium places Krummenacher posted a positive fourth place finish, and with it he remains on top of the championship rankings.

Not finding the feel from his rear set-up in the wet race that he expected Sofuoglu led from lap three until the final lap, when he had to run wide after locking the front momentarily, getting passed by the two following riders. In finishing third he moved to within ten points of his team-mate Krummenacher and 20 points ahead the next nearest challenger in the standings.
