Lowes lucked out today (10 lap race), not sure why Kenan feels the need to out pace people at the beginning of the race, hes a good 'fighter' and Lowes is too susceptible to losing his concentration, that not hanging back and grabbing the confidence in the tires early on doesn't make sense to me, especially when Monza should suite Kenan's straight line speed (advantage.)

Lowes hardly 'lucked out' - he really deserved that win on a bike that was clearly out-paced in a straight line. The amount of re-passes he had to make was superb, even better when you consider he was doing it with an injured wrist.

You could argue that Lowes lucked out if Sofuoglu was way ahead and suffered a mechanical problem, but he crashed four laps into the race... At the end of the day, Lowes kept it upright (against some tough circumstances), Sofuoglu made a mistake by himself. No luck involved.

Great win by Sam. Usual histrionics by Sofuoglu. Sam on the much quicker Kawasaki would clean up. Hes having to ride the wheels off that bike and still manages to win.

What hysterics are you talking about?
That he was gesturing at the fact that he lost his front end on the corner and had an off due to an oil spill from an earlier accident? Put yourself in his shoes. A 3 time world champion trying to win his 4th. Retired & DNF don't win championships.

The brits make sam a GOD! LOL!!. it's obviously just ridiculous for spanish italian turkish french or any other people. Cause brits always act like holigans this is same too. You guys can't observe, Yamaha maybe no have straight speed but have amazing corner speed and generally tracks have 1 or max 2 straight but 6-7 corners so Sam have much advantage then kawasakis he can pass them on 6- 7 times in 1 lap but kawa much bigger and hard handle bike and sam said and accepted this in interwiew. So brit fans what are you all talking about? The last thing is that Sofu won 2 time champ with Honda so what Sam did??? if Sam is so good then he could won last year but he couldn't and the other thing is kawasaki was bad bike before Kenan ride it, they had 1 champ win but almost 10 years ago. The key point is that brits CAN'T JUDGE SOFUOGLU!

Sofuoglu don't need to prove himself. he already 3 time world champion. And he beat many brit racers thats why generally brits hate him.(Laverty, Pitt, Rea etc.) Accept this or not but without Sofuoglu, Supersport is nothing. Just bored thing. And i know after that comment brits will start to say that Sofu is just SSP racer he can't ride SBK(classic story) here is the news Sofuoglu will join Superbike with Kawasaki at 2014 or 15 so just wait..

I'm not sure where to begin with this one:

"kawasaki was bad bike before Kenan ride it, they had 1 champ win but almost 10 years ago" - might want to ask Joan Lascorz about that one.

"he beat many brit racers thats why generally brits hate him.(Laverty, Pitt, Rea etc.) " - Pitt is Australian

"Yamaha maybe no have straight speed but have amazing corner speed and generally tracks have 1 or max 2 straight but 6-7 corners" - Fine when you're riding by yourself, but physics dictates that if someone in front of you is slower in a corner, unless you pass them (which isn't always possible), you can't ride through them, so you have to go at their speed, unlike a straight where there is room to pass every single time. Corner speed means nothing if you can't overtake - ask Ducati.

"The last thing is that Sofu won 2 time champ with Honda so what Sam did???" - Sofuoglu has been racing in this paddock since 2004... Besides, this is Sam's third year, Sofuoglu didn't win a title until his third ye

I respect Sofuoglu for his achievements, he's a great Supersport rider, but Lowes has matured greatly this year and has come a long way in a fairly short space of time. His performance in the circumstances was fantastic, as Sofuoglu's would have been if he had done the same thing.

Sofuoglu's fans moan that we are partisan, but no more so than you are to Sofuoglu.
