Valuable points for Baldolini in Portimao debut

After starting 10th, Alex Baldolini rode a mature race to collect 8 points in the penultimate round of the World Supersport Championship and with it extended his advantage over South African Ronan Quarmby in the battle for 7th place overall in the World Championship Standings.


The race started without incident with Alex circulating inside the top ten but a small mistake dropped him to 12th.


As the front 7 riders eased away, Alex was locked in a titanic battle involving 9 riders with only 1.2 seconds covering them all as they passed the start and finish line to start the last lap.


Alex crossed the line in a credible 8th whilst Kenan Sofuoglu from Turkey finished second in the race to clinch his 3rd World Supersport Championship.


The final round of the championship is held at the Magny-Cours circuit in France in two weeks time.
