Three-time World Champion Kenan Sofuoglu took his first win of the 2014 World Supersport season this past weekend at Motorland Aragon in Spain.

When the race began, six riders swapped places with MV Agusta RC – Yakhnich Motorsport’s Cluzel, the winner at Phillip Island. En route, Cluzel also claimed the a new lap record at Aragon.
