The World Supersport race was 20 laps on a cool 13°C day.
PJ Jacobsen took the lead into the first turn ahead of Kenan Sofuoglu and Luke Stapleford, Alex Baldolini, Randy Krummenacher and Gino Rea, but Sofuoglu took the lead back and set about trying to break away. Jacobsen stayed with him, however and they were joined by Krummenacher who wasted no time in dispatching Stapleford who fell into the clutches of Rea.
Six laps in, Sofuoglu had broken free of Jacobsen who had Krummenacher snapping at his heels, leaving the battle for fourth place, led by Stapleford and then Rea a couple of laps later, almost two seconds behind. Christian Gamarino, further back, withdrew from the race with a smoking bike while duelling with Jules Cluzel.
Alex Baldolini, having dropped back earlier, cleared off from Cluzel and joined Ayrton Badovini behind Rea and Stapleford to make the battle for fourth a four-way dice while Krummenacher, almost three seconds ahead, probed unsuccessfully for a way past Jacobsen.
At the halfway mark, Kyle Smith, back in tenth place, had clear track behind and in front and set the fastest lap on lap eleven and closed up to the MV Agusta pair of Jules Cluzel and Lorenzo Zanetti. Two laps later, Smith caught and past Zanetti. Another lap and he'd caught Cluzel. Another lap and he was ahead of CLuzel looking at a gap of just under three seconds to Baldolini in seventh.
At the front, Kenan Sofuoglu's comfortable two and a half second gap was being slowly eroded by PJ Jacobsen and Randy Krummenacher as the pace increased, but Krummenacher couldn't maintain Jacobsen's lap times and saw the American break away on his own to chase down the leader Sofuoglu.
Kenan Sofuoglu isn't a man to suffer under pressure, though, and while he gave a few tenths of a second a lap to Jacobsen, he maintained a low 1'31 pace and won the race by just over a second. PJ Jacobsen was rewarded with his efforts with a second place with a lonely Randy Krummenacher over two seconds further back. Gino Rea, the fastest man on Friday, kept in front of Luke Stapleford for the remainder of the race and came home in fourth place ahead of his countryman. Kyle Smith, having carved his way through fast traffic from fourteenth place, finished in sixth.
Kenan Sofuoglu extends his lead by nine points to twenty six points ahead of his teammate Randy Krummenacher. PJ Jacobsen takes third place in the title chase, leapfrogging both Jules Cluzel and Kyle Smith.
