Sam Lowes has taken a magnificent second consecutive World Supersport Championship win of the season at Monza after keeping his cool on a chaotic day that saw him endure three red flag stoppages and incur a wrist injury, before eventually prevailing in an exhilarating race.
Originally scheduled for 12.30GMT, the race wouldn't get underway until 15.45GMT after repeated delays brought on by three red flag periods forced it to be put to the end of the day's racing schedule.
The first red flag would occur just two laps into the initial start when the top four riders - Kenan Sofuoglu, Florian Marino, Lowes and Lorenzo Zanetti - all came down on oil deposited by Massimo Roccoli's expiring Yamaha.
Following a lengthy clean-up operation, the second start would last just a lap when Alessia Polita crashed heavily on the exit of Ascari, her Yamaha damaging the air fence at a critical point in the circuit.
The final red flag would come just seconds into the third restart when wild-card Stefano Cruciani missed his braking point as a result of contact on the entry to the corner. Sending him too fast into the bend, he would clatter into Lorenzo Zanetti, creating a concertina effect behind that would delay several riders and cause a significant number to fall as well.
Indeed, the latter accident would prove particularly detrimental to some of the title contenders, with Fabien Foret and Michael van der Mark – who were first and second overall coming into the race – falling hard enough to miss the fourth restart altogether when it eventually came.
Similarly, Lowes didn't escape unharmed from the melee, his fall in the first start leaving him with a wrist injury that initially put him in doubt for the restart too.
Nonetheless, the Briton braved it out for the fourth start, which he began from pole position, but he would be swallowed up into the opening bend by Marino - who came into the race having crashed twice over the course of the day's chaos - Sofuoglu and Zanetti.
