Preview - Vallelunga.

Fabien Foret (GIL Kawasaki) hopes that his 26 point lead over third place rider Broc Parkes (Yamaha World Supersport Team) will be enough to leave him on championship runner-up status, but as Parkes has won the last two races, Foret will have to display all his riding credentials to keep himself ahead of the aggressive Australian, whom he will join in the official Yamaha squad next season.

In fourth place comes Katsuaki Fujiwara (Althea Honda) with Massimo Roccoli (Yamaha Lorenzini by Leoni) only three points behind. With no previous formbook to refer to, local knowledge may play into the hands of the Italian-based riders, as Vallelunga is an integral part of their domestic series.

After the SBK legions break camp in the hills outside Rome, a quick forced march to France will bring them to Magny-Cours for the last round of the championship on 7th October.
