AXO shines with Smith winner of Supersport in Assen

April 17, 2016

Kyle Smith gave CIA Landlord Insurance Honda its first win of the 2016 season with a thrilling last lap podium battle which saw him fight off reigning World Supersport Champion Sofuoglu.
Kyle was in 6thposition in the dry race when a sudden cloudburst deluged the track bringing the red flag out and forcing a wet race re-start. With everyone struggling with the tricky conditions in the 6 lap dash, Smith showed great skill and confidence to claim the win, crossing the line 0.8 seconds ahead of Rea

Kyle Smith: “It was a difficult race. I’ve had good pace in the wet all weekend but today the track was much more slippery. The last two laps felt a lot better, I had to work for the win. I am really happy for myself and the team, it’s great to be on the top step.”
