SSTK: Second straight win for Staring

Starting 24th on the grid, Ducati 848 Challenge points leader Brown simply picked his way up the order over the course of the race, a charge that would see him set the fastest lap of the race and come away with an exceptional fourth place finish. Furthermore, at the rate he was catching eventual third place man Jeremy Guarnoni, an additional lap may have seen Brown score an unprecedented podium in his maiden outing.

Behind him, a last lap shuffle would see Staring's team-mate David McFadden complete Pedercini Kawasaki's fine day in fifth place, ahead of Fabio Massei, Christoffer Bergman and local rider Ondrej Jezek.

Despite the conditions, the race enjoyed low attrition with just Barrier and his BMW Italia team-mate Lorenzo Baroni failing to see the chequered flag.

As such, the remaining positions were filled by Matthie Lussiana and Andrzej Chmielewski in ninth and tenth, followed by Kev Coghlan, Jan Halbich, Markus Reiterberger, Alen Gyorfi and Massimo Parziani.
