Yakhnich Motorsport’s Sam Lowes took his second consecutive World Supersport win of the 2013 season at Monza, beating Kawasaki Intermoto Ponyexpres’ Florian Marino by 0.798 seconds. Pata Honda World Supersport’s Lorenzo Zanetti grabbed a spot on the rostrum in third.

MAHI Racing Team India rider and defending World Supersport champion, Kenan Sofuoglu, flew off the start to the front, holding the lead through the opening three laps. The Turkish rider then crashed in Turn 8 and was able to rejoin briefly, but after a few minutes returned to the pits and retired from competition. Lowes, meanwhile, had battled up to second-place just before Sofuoglu’s accident, so was in position to take the front once the Kawasaki rider went down. Lowes held steady out front for the remaining six laps.

Marino and Zanetti tussled with fourth-place finisher Riccardo Russo of Puccetti Racing Kawasaki throughout the race, exchanging positions a number of times before settling into their final slots on the last lap. Kawasaki DMC-Lorenzini’s Kev Coughlan finished in fifth-place, followed by PTR Honda’s Sheridan Morais in sixth. Lowes’ teammate, Vladimir Leonov, finished seventh.

Lowes now leads the series by 16 points over Sofuoglu’s teammate, Fabien Foret. Pata Honda rider Michael van der Mark remains third overall while Sofuoglu sits fourth.
