WSS: PICS: Laverty and Sofuoglu collide

The World Supersport Championship battle comes to a head at Imola...
What the World Supersport Championship may have lacked in grid numbers this year it has certainly made up for in superb competition and this was no better represented than at Imola.

An enthralling dice between Kenan Sofuoglu and Eugene Laverty in what was a crucial race for the title kept fans on the edge of their seats from start to finish.

It is almost a shame then that the race will likely be remembered for the final corner collision between the two protagonists, one that has certainly divided opinion.

Laverty says "He put pressure on me and I lost the front so we crashed" Laverty, You were too optimistic!...You were behind him as shown at picture and pushing physics rules too much!... Come on guy and admit the true to yourself or whisper us, " It is a sily move but I must try " A few seconds later... " OK. at least he could win but not although I' m a loser again!..." Sick Cylinder, You' re right. Kenan will race for the remaining two races in Moto2 instead of Shoya Tomizawa, who tragically lost his life in an accident at Misano two weeks' ago. I hope he does well for both Tomizawa and himself.
