Kenan Sofuoglu - 2012 World Supersport Champion.
Kenan Sofuoglu (Kawasaki Lorenzini) secured the title in the FIM Supersport World Championship today at Portimao with a controlled second place, only 0.645 seconds from another race win.
Sofuoglu made a late push to ensure he would get in the podium on his own merit and not just as the new champion. After a tough but ultimately successful year he was most interested in sealing what is his third World Championship in this class without any last lap risk.
Kenan is the most successful rider in WSS history and allied to his Kawasaki Lorenzini Ninja ZX-6R he has been a potent force throughout the season, winning four races - so far. Kenan now joins Andrew Pitt as a rider who has won the WSS Championship on a Kawasaki.
