CHIARELLO WINS IN STYLE!

Team Alstare Suzuki Corona Extra rider Riccardo Chiarello used his head to win today^Òs Superstock 1000 race in style. Didier Van Keymeulen (Yamaha) led the race for the first seven laps chased by Vittorio Iannuzzo (MV) and Chiarello and it was these three who pulled away from the crest of the field. Iannuzzo took the lead on lap eight, but one lap later Chiarello made his move and hit the front. From then on in, despite massive pressure from Van Keymeulen, Chiarello held his nerve to run out a worthy winner. His margin of victory over Van Keymeulen was over six tenths of a second at the flag. Iannuzzo had faded over the latter part of the race, but took a fairly comfortable third, ahead of Roccoli (Yamaha).

RICCARDO CHIARELLO - 1st I had a few little tyre problems in the early laps, but then I became used to what was happening and started to reel in the two ahead of me. When I took the lead, I felt pretty comfortable - even though I knew that Van Keymeulen would try and pressurise me. It was no big problem for me to stay in front and I was very happy to see the chequered flag.

Results: 1 RICCARDO CHIARELLO (I-Alstare Suzuki Corona Extra) 2, Van Keymeulen, 3 Iannuzzo, 4 Roccoli, 5 Polita, 6 Coxhell

Points: 1 Roccoli 74, 2 Sofuoglu 66, 3 Van Keymeulen 64, 4 Coxhell 57, 5 CHIARELLO 38, 6 De Angelis 32,
