Holy shit, I can't believe that nobody mentioned anything about this. Chris Walker gets his first win in WSBK, and a victory for Kawasaki. In the wet of course, but a win is a win. It's too bad I chose to tape the second race today instead of the first..
to quote superbikeplanetAn astonishing 22-lap contest gave Chris Walker his first ever World Superbike race win, as the Nottinghamshire rider overcame the atrocious weather and slippery track to go from dead last (and on the gravel at the first corner on lap one) to victor in front of a drenched Assen crowd. It was Kawasaki's first race win in SBK since a double success for Hitoyasu Izutsu, at Sugo in 2000.
