Jerez WSBK: Lowes ends World Supersport year on a high

The Derby lad is leaving the series to compete in Moto2 and he made sure that he cemented his last outing for his Russian team in dominant fashion. He did not initially lead the race from the opening lap that went to the former champ, but by lap five Lowes made his mark and pushed into first place.

The lead changed numerous times between the two riders but with two laps to go Lowes made a pass that stuck, and he went on to clinch yet another victory, with Sofuoglu in second.

The last place on the podium went to Roberto Rolfo, who remained in third for the duration of the race after setting consistently quick times, followed by Pata Honda duo Michael van Der Mark and Lorenzo Zanetti.

DMC-Lorenzini rider ended the race in seventh, with Yakhnich Yamaha’s Vladimir Leonov and MAHI Racing’s Fabien Foret rounding off the top ten. ParkinGO MV’s Christian Iddon was as high as fourth but experienced a technical issue and resorted to the pits. PTR Honda’s Danny Webb and Rivamoto’s finished in eleventh and sixteenth respectively.
