Four Wins In A Row As Kenan Sofuoglu Dominates Donington

Posted:

Kenan Sofuoglu (Kawasaki Puccetti Racing) rode to his fourth win in four races by taking victory at the Donington Park round of the FIM Supersport World Championship.

In a fight with his main championship rival Jules Cluzel and British wild card Kyle Ryde in the early laps, Sofuoglu took the lead on lap four and then held a gap to eventual second place rider Cluzel, easing up at the flag to win by 0.891 seconds.

His fourth win of the year in his Ninja ZX-6R made it 31 race victories in his WSS career. Kenan is now a strong 45 points ahead of second placed Cluzel at the halfway point of the season.

‰ÛÏFrom the first day at Donington we were very strong and yesterday in the race simulation it looked like we had a good advantage." Sofuoglu said. "Today I was a little scared of the weather because it was quite cold.

"I had to be very careful on the entry of the left corners because it was not only a race to think about today, I am also riding for the championship. It was very important for me to stay on the bike.

"When I took the lead I looked behind and saw Cluzel. I tried to keep the distance to him, to be more relaxed. He had good pace but I think I had more if I needed it. I did not want to take any risks.

"I want to say a big thank you to Kawasaki and Puccetti Racing because this weekend we were very strong and we led almost all the sessions. You cannot ask any more than winning the races.‰Û
