Smith triumphs at Qatar
Kyle Smith won the final World Supersport race of the season at Qatar in thrilling fashion by just 6 thousandths of a second from current World Champion Kenan Sofuoglu.
Kyle charged to the front in the early laps of the race and held off campaigns by Jules Cluzel and Kenan Sofuoglu to emerge triumphant in a last lap sprint to the chequered flag.
“That was a close one especially as Kenan is not the one you want to be battling with on the last lap! This track really suits me and I felt like I had the pace all weekend so I put my head down and just tried to do fast lap after fast lap. I pulled a bit of a gap mid race but obviously Kenan caught me up and we had a good fun battle to the chequered flag and I managed to beat him so I’m super happy with that.”
