World Supersport was nineteen dry laps as the rain decided it'd had enough. It didn't matter as the riders were capable of creating enough chaos without it.
At the start of the race, there was a massive coming together of several riders that ended the race for Dominique Aegerter, Andy Verdoia, Raffaele De Rosa, Federico Caricasulo and Yari Montoya. Can Oncu was involved in the collisions, sliding both wheels as he pushed too hard into the turn and he collected Montella and De Rosa. Oncu got a ride through penalty for his part in the chaos and this put him out of contention.
As the race continued, Lorenzo Baldassarri escaped at the front, building a lead over the first seven laps of almost three seconds over Adrian Huertas with Glenn van Straalen and Valentin Debise a further second behind. Steven Odendaal, a replacement rider for Alessandro Zetti at Kallio Racing, and Stefano Manzi were at the back of the fight for second place.
As Huertas and van Straalen swapped places back and forth, Baldassarri extended his lead to four seconds. Nicolo Bulega joined the group fighting for second place, making it a six-bike fight. At half race distance, Baldassarri led by over four seconds as Glenn van Straalen led Valentin Debise, Stefano Manzi, Adrian Huertas, Steven Odendaal and Nicolo Bulega as they were covered by less than a second. Niki Tuuli was under a second behind and closing, making the fight for second place seven bikes long by lap twelve. Lap thirteen, two thirds race distance, Baldassarri led Manzi by almost five seconds as Debise duelled with Manzi. Debise, replacing Jules Cluzel for a round, took second place off Manzi and held it throughout the lap to start lap fourteen ahead of the Triumph. Nicolo Bulega passed Glenn van Straalen into turn one to slot in behind Manzi. Manzi took second place into turn one of lap fifteen and tried to break free of the four-way fight behind him.
At the start of lap sixteen of nineteen, Lorenzo Baldassarri led Stefano Manzi by almost seven seconds as Manzi tried to escape from the fight behind him where Valentin Debise fended off Glenn van Straalen, Steven Odendaal, Adrian Huertas, Nicolo Bulega and Niki Tuuli. On lap sixteen, Lorenzo Baldassarri set the fastest lap, a 1'35.112 lap record, as he increased the lead to over seven seconds. Second to ninth places were all in touch with each other, with two laps to go.
At the start of the last lap, Baldassari held a comfortable lead and an aggressive defence of second place by Stefano Manzi let Steven Odendaal take third place from Valentin Debise and Manzi held second place to the flag.
Lorenzo Baldassarri won by six seconds over Stefano Manzi's first podium for the Triumph Street Triple RS, the first Triumph podium in a decade, in second place and Steven Odendaal fought off Valentin Debise for the last step of the podium. Odendaal qualified in eighteenth place and he apologised for anyone he punted off at the beginning of the race.
Dominique Aegerter's DNF allowed Lorenzo Baldassarri to claw back twenty five points on the runaway championship leader, closing to within thirty nine points of the leader. Stefano Manzi's podium put him in fifth place in the championship, seven points off fourth placed Can Oncu and thirty five points behind Nicolo Bulega whose ninth place after an off-track excursion lost him a few places.
