2010 Kyalami World Supersport Race Result - Another Dominant Victory In WSS Class

Results and summary of the World Supersport race at Kyalami:

Parkalgar Honda's Eugene Laverty rounded out a weekend of total dominance at Kyalami, by taking an imperious victory in the World Supersport race. Laverty's hegemony was threatened only twice during the weekend, once in Sunday morning's warm up, when Kenan Sofuoglu was fastest, and in the first half of the first lap of the race, after the Ten Kate man beat Laverty off the line and into Turn 1 in the lead. Half a lap later, Laverty was past Sofuoglu, and had a manageable gap. By the halfway mark, Laverty was in complete control, his position never coming under any threat whatsoever.

Sofuoglu's 2nd place was as safe as Laverty's lead, with his teammate Michele Pirro following at first, but soon demoted to 4th by ParkinGO Triumph's Chaz Davies, who took the final spot on the podium. After a tough battle with Motocard.com Kawasaki teammate Katsuaki Fujiwara and Benjan Racing's Robbin Harms, Joan Lascorz fought his way forward to 5th, relinquishing the lead in the title race, but at least limiting the damage he suffered to Sofuoglu and Laverty. Just 5 points separate the front three, and after three victories in a row, just a single point separates Laverty from championship leader Sofuoglu.
