Sofuoglu Extends Championship Lead With Misano Race Win

160620_24

The fourth race win of the year for Kenan Sofuoglu (Kawasaki Puccetti Racing) came after a long waiting game for the most successful racer in WorldSSP history. He took the lead with two laps to go and was never headed afterwards. Kawasaki Puccetti Racing riders still sit 1-2 in the FIM Supersport World Championship as Randy Krummenacher finished fifth in the race, scoring valuable points.

Having fitted a hard option tyre just before the 19-lap race started at Misano, to suit the cooler conditions, Sofuoglu had to push hard for most of the race and hope that the race pace would come to him. His efforts were repaid with his 36th WorldSSP race win, part of a record total of 75 podium places for the Turkish star.

Behind the podium fight Krummenacher had a tough and combative 19-laps, having been hit by another rider early in the race and then finding he did not have the physical power, due to a pre-existing shoulder injury, to stay in podium contention.

After his latest race win Sofuoglu has the championship lead and 146 points in all, 40 more than the second placed rider Krummenacher. PJ Jacobsen is third on 92 points, 14 behind Randy with the long summer break coming up before the next round at Lausitzring in Germany on September 18th.
