Exciting final lap in Supersport race at Donington.

After a thrilling 20 lap World Supersport race at Donington Park, Michael van der Mark (Pata Honda World Supersport Team) has taken his second win of the season after a tense final three corners saw him fend off Jules Cluzel (MV Agusta RC-Yakhnich Motorsport).

Kev Coghlan (DMC-Panavto Yamaha) was back on the podium, taking the final place on the rostrum after being in the leading fight until the closing stages.

Former World Champion Kenan Sofuoglu (Mahi Team India Kawasaki) suffered another technical problem while leading but unlike in recent races the Turk was able to bring his machine home in 4th at the flag, unlike Lorenzo Zanetti (Pata Honda World Supersport Team) who retired after his engine let go at Coppice Corner while the Italian was fighting for the lead.

Florian Marino (Kawasaki Intermoto Ponyexpres) was classified 5th after working his way through the field from his lowly grid position. His team mate PJ Jacobsen was 6th.

Wildcard rider Sam Hornsey (Anvil Hire TAG Triumph) finished a respectable 16th overall.
