Nice race. All the satellite classes (WSS, Moto2, AMA Daytona Superbike) are the ones givings the best racing shows.

Laverty is the man. You have to be good to let sofuoglu go by KNOWING that you can pass him on the last lap.

Freaking brilliant... and lucky! Superglue had run lap times several tenths faster than Laverty's fastest laps during that race. I guess Laverty just knew he had something in the bag and that Superglue wasn't going to have it at the end?

I think Superglue has been pretty vocal this season about his tires not lasting the entire race.. or rather, going off sooner than the other guys. Something like that.

But yeah.. helluva race!

It looked to me like Laverty was afraid of Sofuoglu taking him out so he preferred to follow then take a chance on passing on the last lap ??
