Although not as dominant in race 1, success by near the six second mark in the second 600 encounter at Schleiz, was made all the more momentous for Thomas Walther, who now heads the 2017 IRRC Supersport championship standings.

Joey Den Besten’s second place finish means his fellow YZF R6 Yamaha mounted rider, holds a narrow three point series lead.
