Brno World Supersport: Cluzel scores NRT's third win

Jules Cluzel gave Indian-backed NRT team its third World Supersport win in a closely-fought race in Czech Republic.

Cluzel made a rocketing getaway from third position to jump to the lead on the opening lap, with Sandro Cortese slotting behind in second position.

The two then got engaged in a race-long scrap, trading position several times during the 15-lap event. However, everytime Cortese managed to slip past Cluzel, the NRT rider was able to repass him in the next few corners and stay in the lead.

The gap between the two riders never exceeded a tenth, save for the final lap when Cluzel extended his advantage to 0.148s to claim a hard-fought victory.

Thomas Gradinger gained four places from his starting position to end up sixth, securing a strong haul of point for the NRT team.

The result allows Cluzel to close the gap to Cortese to just two points in the riders’ standings, with NRT itself rising up to second in the teams’ championship.
