WSS Donington: Lowes wins by eleven seconds

1 of 1

Sam Lowes stormed to a World Supersport victory at Donington Park with an untouchable 11.1 second lead over second placed, Sofuoglu. In doing so he also beat the lap record of 1’31.094 – set by himself in 2011 – with a fastest time of 1’30.927.

With his nearest championship rival, Foret only managing a ninth place and Van De Mark recovering from a crash to stumble home in twentieth position, Lowes now has a strong, thirty point lead in the overall championship standings.

Elsewhere, Roberto Rolfo took third place and MV Agusta's first championship podium since 1976.
