2014 Donington World Supersport Race Results
World Supersport was dry, with 16-degree air temperature and 27-degree track temperature.
Kenan Sofuoglu took the lead ahead of a pack of five riders who constantly jostled for position for ten laps behind him, right up to the point Sofuoglu's engine started spewing smoke, adding to his misfortune, and making it look like his race had ended. However, as Kev Coghlan, Lorenzo Zanetti, Jules Cluzel, Michael Van Der Mark and PJ Jacobsen passed the stricken Kawasaki, it came back to life and Sofuoglu was able to resume his race.
Jules Cluzel forced his way past Kev Coghlan for the lead as Jacobsen fell off the back of the leading four, leaving Lorenzo Zanetti and Michael Van Der Mark to try to keep up. With six laps left, Zanetti's bike gave up the ghost, belching white smoke, while Van Der Mark caught and passed Kev Coghlan and turned his sights to Jules Cluzel, catching and passing him for the lead with four laps remaining.
Behind the leaders, Kenan Sofuoglu was closing in on Kev Coghlan, turning a two second gap it two tenths. Michael Van Der Mark held the lead, in spite of many attempts from an ankle biting Jules Cluzel, and the pair crossed the line separated by under two tenths of a second. Kev Coghlan maintained his cool and took third place ahead of Kenan Sofuoglu.
Michael Van Der Mark took the victory and now leads the championship on his own, fourteen points clear of Florian Marino.
