Bryan Staring has moved himself onto the fringes of the FIM Superstock 1000 Championship title fight after notching up his second consecutive victory in treacherous weather at Brno.
Fresh from his dominant first-ever Superstock 1000 win last time out at Motorland Aragon, Staring showed his versatility by putting in a similarly comprehensive display, albeit this time in very wet conditions.
Getting away well from the front row of the grid, Staring struck a decisive blow from the very first lap as he swooped into the lead at the opening bend and quickly established an advantage over his more tentative opposition.
Ending the first lap with a margin of almost five seconds over second place man Sylvain Barrier, by the time Eddi La Marra had worked his way up to that position, he was faced with a stern task to reel in the Australian.
Even so, the Italian did his utmost, reducing the margin to less than three seconds at one point, before opting to ease off in the closing stages safe in the knowledge that he would assume the championship lead from that position.
Indeed, though pole man and series leader Barrier started well, he was dropping down the order when an aggressive overtaking attempt by David McFadden resulted in him falling out of the race. His retirement means, in six races, Barrier has managed three wins and three DNFs.
His demise has subsequently launched La Marra into the lead of the standings by 19 points, despite the fact he is yet to win a race, while Staring's second straight win means he is just five points behind Barrier in third position overall.
With the top two establishing a massive lead over the rest of the field, all eyes were instead on the battle for the remaining positions, in particular the epic progress of SSTK debutant Robbie Brown, who was flourishing in the tricky conditions.
