Foret moves top as rivals flounder

Behind them, local racer Vittorio Iannuzzo gave Triumph a welcome return to the top five on the Suriano-prepared Daytona 675, ahead of series debutant Vladimir Leonov on the Yakhnich Yamaha and Toth Honda rider Balazs Nemeth.

Tamburini's team-mate Andrea Antonelli grabbed eighth place, ahead of another Italian Massimo Roccoli, while Morais had to contend with a fairly unsatisfying tenth place having at least been able to pick his ZX-6R up and continue for six points.

Elsewhere, Alex Baldolini was 11th, despite losing time with an off, ahead of Joshua Day, Romain Lanusse, Luca Marconi and Jed Metcher, the RivaMoto rider snatching a point despite being one to ensure a ride-through penalty.

Well... That wasn't the surprise we were expecting from Kenan, but the penalty was completely unjust. I still wish he served it, he could've finished as high as 3-4-5th place... Maybe he didn't see the pit board coming out of the last corner as Neil Hodgson suggested...
