Kawasaki Puccetti Racing Head Home To Imola Full Of Expectation
The fifth round of the 2016 FIM Supersport World Championship approaches at Imola with Kawasaki Puccetti Racing riders Randy Krummenacher and Kenan Sofuoglu first and second respectively in the championship standings.

Both have won a race this season and provided other podium finishes while competing for their Italian-based team.

The WorldSSP championship has thrown up surprise results and no fewer than nine individual podium finishers across the first four rounds of the year. Through it all the two official Kawasaki riders, Randy Krummenacher and Kenan Sofuoglu, have shown consistent form on track. They sit first and second in the standings, with rookie Krummenacher on 71 points and four-time world champion Sofuoglu on 61.

Even a no-score after a tyre issue at the first round for Sofuoglu and two narrow off-podium finishes for Krummenacher have not held the Puccetti duo back in their attack on the podium or points table. Kawasaki currently leads the Manufacturers‰Ûª Standings by 15 points.

After some significant modifications to the technical rules for the entire class, involving a great reduction in allowable electronic aids in particular, the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R and its lead rider pairing have continued to make progress at the top of the table.

Imola is an all-new track for former Grand Prix rider Krummenacher, one of a handful of new venues he will face this year as he makes the transition to production derived racing. He has been enthralled by the videos he has seen of the layout and is more than keen to get into action to try and defend his championship lead, after learning the secrets of the undulating 4.936km Imola parkland circuit.

‰ÛÏI don‰Ûªt know the track at Imola but I have watched the onboard camera footage," Krummenacher shared.

"I feel I am going to really love it so I cannot wait to get there. It is super fast and I love it when it is super fast. I am very hungry to go fast and there is not much more to say until I get there. I just want to enjoy it and have fun. In general for the championship I am sure when I went to Australia I did not expect to be leading the championship but now, more and more, I feel that I am capable of doing good things like I have done in the four races so far.

"It feels more normal now and I will to try to keep it up and stay in front. It is a really nice feeling, which gives me a lot of confidence and I learn every second I am on the bike. I need to pay attention and for sure the other riders are also fast. If I want to be better than them I always have to look for improvement.‰Û
