In the Supersport World Championship, Yamaha rider Christian Kellner made it three different winning manufacturers in as many races this season, holding off a spirited challenge from long term leader Ryuichi Kiyonari, who was entered as a wild card rider by the BKM Honda team.
In third place early leader Stephane Chambon [Alstare Suzuki] took the last podium position, with Yamaha wild card Tekkyu Kayo fourth and World Championship leader Chris Vermeulen [Ten Kate Honda] fifth, one place ahead of his team-mate Karl Muggeridge.
This result puts Vermeulen ten points clear of Suzuki rider Katsuaki Fujiwara, who fell while in second place and remounted to finish 15th. Kellner's win promoted him to third overall.
The next rounds of both Superbike and Supersport championships take place at Monza on May 18.
