Superbikes Russia 2012: Kenan Sofuoglu does not give up… and Vladimir Leonov on the podium
Anonim

Kenan Sofuoglu has reaped a new victory for their showcases after ruthlessly dominating the Supersport category race. The only driver who was able to keep up with his pace during the first few laps of the test was Jules Cluzel, although with his effort he could only reach second place on the podium. Completing the drawer, an unexpected, Vladimir Leonov, the Russian rider who shares a sponsor - Yakhnich - with Moscow Raceway on his Yamaha R6.

After the traffic light goes out Sam lowes it shot out, so much so that he skipped the exit. A mistake that has cost him dearly because in the 600cc class one of the favorites for the title cannot afford this kind of stumble. Sam led yes, but he knew very well that he would end with a pinch of points - four - at best thanks to not controlling, once again, an excess of motivation.

With Sam penalized, Kenan and Jules gave us the most beautiful moments with hasty braking to the limit and drawn in parallel. Nevertheless, the Turk was subscribed to the first place from the second round, subjecting his pursuers to a beastly pace that increased with the steps to the finish line leaving the French rider completely off the hook. Vladimir, with a good role in the qualifying sessions, pulled the home factor to climb to third place, giving joy to the Russian fans displaced to the place.

Special mention, again, for Eurosport and their lousy job in keeping the Player in minimal condition.
