2013 World Supersport Results from Assen TT Circuit

Spoiler Alert: 2013 World Supersport results from the Assen TT Circuit in the Netherlands listed below

After the disappointment of the Aragon World Supersport round two weeks ago, Yaknich Motorsport Yamaha’s Sam Lowes and reigning Champion Kenan Sofuoglu aboard Mahi Racing Team India Kawasaki ZX-6R were back at the front Sunday for a two-way fight for race win at TT Circuit of Assen.

The two Supersport riders shared the lead over the course of the 21 laps, but it wasn’t until the last lap that the final battle took place.

Sofuoglu overpowered Lowes on the straight that leads to Turn 6, but couldn’t do much when Lowes got along the inside of him – entering the last chicane – to cross the line in first place.

World Supersport Championship leader Fabien Foret (Mahi Racing Team India Kawasaki) got an important 3rd place finish despite the 7.2 seconds gap from the lead at the chequered flag. The Frenchman looked strong halfway through the race, closing the gap with the front runners before eventually falling back. Michael van der Mark (Pata Honda World Supersport) got a terrible start of the race from the 11th grid slot, but was able to make his way through the field to a final 4th.

Florian Marino (Intermoto Ponyexpres Kawasaki), substitute for injured David Salom, rode a great race finish 5th ahead of Roberto Rolfo (ParkinGO MV Agusta Corse), who got his best finish so far in 2013, and Jack Kennedy (Rivamoto Honda), early protagonist of the race before losing a lot of ground.
