What A great race. I really can't imagine betting against kenan for this championship. But Also a gr8 race for foret.

Super happy to see Sheridan Morais in sixth. A gr8 result if you consider he's NEVER raced at this track, and he rent a photo to the south african tv studio of his rear tyre, Where the entire left side had de-lamimated! And third fastest lap of the race. Gr8 show.

Go team green go.

That was a thoroughly entertaining race. So much talent in this class on so many good bikes! I think Sofuoglu is gonna win it bit it's not gonna be easy. This is going to be a great Supersport season.

And Quarmby, from 13 to 7th. Bogged start and then those incredible passes through turns 2 and 3. Biggest gainer of the race. And he's only 20 with about 4 or 5 years of riding !!! Better race set up to conserve tyres and we could just see a podium this year.

@ why Kenan?

Poor equipment. The team might have been good but they didn't have the equipment/finance to support Kenan.
If he wins the title this year he should get a top moto2 ride but he may have a distaste for that series. The truth is I am not sure what road Kenan should take. It is normal to see a rider progress to a larger capacity class but I am unsure if he has the ability for the bigger machines. Then again maybe we should not judge him off his one year on the Honda, because if we looked carefully not many have done well on that bike..even Checa was booted for poor performance. I would like to see him on another bike maybe the Kawasaki SBK in 2013 if Lascorz underperforms.

Nah, there are more politics involved than I think you guys are willing to let on. Unless a competent and willing team or sponsor like Repsol are willing to back Kenan in GP racing he wont get a fair shake like he has in WSS. Its great to see Sofuoglu minding his potential and winning it big again.

I would like to see him opposite Melandri, w/ equal support, on a factory RSV4 when Max retires, I think those two guys would be awesome together on that bike.
