Datzer who retained the IRRC Superbike Championship lead, had steadily increased his pace throughout and on lap nine set the fastest lap of the race, lapping at 1 minute 38.069 seconds.

Erno Kostamo completed the podium finishers alongside Datzer, Lonbois after a gritty, tenacious performance.

Third within last evening’s BeNeCup Superbike race, Sweden’s Markus Karlsson took fourth ahead of top Kawasaki runner Lukas Maurer with Didier Grams completing the top six.
