The 20-lap race was initially red-flagged after a first corner crash involving several riders. Third placed Broc Parkes lead for the majority of the restarted 19-lap race, but couldn’t hold off challenges from Pitt and HANNspree Stiggy Motorsport Honda’s Joshua Brookes, who finished second. Pitt’s superb victory is his third so far this season and propels him to the top of the championship standings.
HANNspree Ten Kate Honda’s Jonathan Rea also enjoyed a positive result at the Nurburgring. Despite starting from the fourth row of the grid, the young Ulsterman had a good start from the line and battled hard to score sixth at the chequered flag. Rea is now seventh in the series overall.
Meanwhile, HANNspree Stiggy Motorsport’s Robbin Harms and HANNspree Honda Althea’s Gianluca Nannelli were unable to complete race distance at the German event. Harms crashed out of contention on lap 12 while Nannelli was forced to enter the pit lane on the 13th lap.
The next World Supersport event takes place at Misano on 29 June.
