2012 World Supersport
Fabien Foret (Kawasaki Intermoto Step) took a cool and professional World Supersport win after 19-laps of competition at Imola in Italy Sunday, his first victory of the year, and the first for his team in 2012.
Sam Lowes (Bogdanka PTR Honda) went a close second and after many issues for some front-runners, Ronan Quarmby (PTR Honda) was third, albeit 17 seconds from the winner.
Roberto Tamburini (Team Lorini Honda) went fourth – by only 0.004 seconds – the Power Team by Suriano Triumph of Vittorio Iannuzzo was fifth.
In the 2012 World Supersport Championship, Foret has 45 points, Lowes 31 and Kenan Sofuoglu (Kawasaki DeltaFin Lorenzini) in on 25 alongside Quarmby, after the Turkish rider was black flagged for not taking a ride through penalty.
