As a high quality battle ensued for second, out front Kamil Holan showcased again why he is regarded amongst the Czech Republic’s leading closed roads exponents by producing a faultless display on the Dafit Moto Racing Yamaha, in the sole Supersport race of the 2018 300 Curves of Gustav Havel races.

Never headed in the race, which was red flagged on lap 10 following an incident involving Krystian Paluch, the 2012 Newcomers A Manx GP winners race, winning advantage stood at plus 11 seconds over the closely matched Thomas Walther and Christian Schmitz.
