Summary and results of the second World Supersport race at Misano:
Standings for the WorldSSP class after the first race in Misano:
World Supersport at Misano had Valentino Rossi wandering the track as the riders lined up for the first race of the only Italian weekend this year. Ducati put in a good performance in qualifying and hoped for a win under the warm Italian sun. Dominique Aegerter leads the championship by forty four points ahead of the eighteen lap race.
A 34ºC track gave the riders a more predictable session that was plagued with riders exceeding track limits as they tried to set fast laps.
Another session, another Italian putting a Next Generation bike on top, this time it was Nicolo Bulega with the Ducati holding off Stefano Manzi on the triumph. Dominique Aegerter was third quickest and the only Yamaha in the top five.
Stefano Manzi set the quickest time in the morning's session on his Triumph, ahead of Dominique Aegerter.
Can Oncu, Lorenzo Baldassarri, Federico Caricasulo and race-winner Andy Verdoia rounded out the morning's top six, putting four different manufacturers in the top five.
World Supersport standings after the second race in Portugal:
Race two of World Supersport this weekend would be missing Niki Tuuli and Andy Verdoia. The track was dry after this morning's rain but was only 18ºC. Drops of rain on the sighting lap threatened to mix things up.
