2012 Moscow World Supersport Race Result: Dominance To The Flag

World Supersport ran 22 unbroken laps in the dry and the Russian crowd are treated to a masterclass of smooth riding.

Kenan Sofuoglu pushed his way to third on the first lap, behind Jules Cluzel and an overly eager Sam Lowes. Lowes jumped the start and led for two laps until he was nudged a little by Sofuoglu on his way to the front, having passed Cluzel. Lowes quickly took his ride through penalty, eventually finishing in 12th. Cluzel slotted his Honda in behind the hard charging Turk and the pair made a break ahead of Russian Vladimir Leonov and Broc Parkes.

Sofuoglu and Cluzel remained in formation until six laps from the end where Sofuoglu pushed his Kawasaki and eked out a lead, lap on lap, over Cluzel and he took a safe victory, Kawasaki's second of the day, managing his street-legal tyres to the end, ahead of Cluzel. A jubilant Leonov gave the Russian crowd a new local hero, and gave a generation of Russians a reason to buy a Yamaha.
