Third World title for the Turkish pilot. Sidi Vortice is with him.

Maser (Treviso), 02 October, 2012 – For the Sidi Sport colours 2012 has really been a year to remember in motor sports, off road as much as on the track. After victories in the world of motocross – in the men’s field with Tony Cairoli and in the women’s world with Kiara Fontanesi – now from the track Sidi has claimed another prestigious trophy for our collection. That would be Kenan Sofuoglu’s World title in the Supersport class. This success has even come one race before the end of the World series; in fact the last act will take place on Sunday, October 7 in Magny Cours, France. Thanks to the second place he garnered on the Portuguese circuit in Portimao, in the second-to-last rainbow race, the Turkish pilot was crowned World Supersport Champion for the third time in his career, the first as a pilot for team Kawasaki Lorenzini. Sofuoglu was an authentic matador in the 2012 Supersport season. These are record numbers for the ace from Adapazari, the undisputed leader in World Supersport in terms of victories (21 total), trips to the podium (no less than 48 out of 68 races) and now even World titles, a whopping three (2007, 2010, 2012).
So it turns out that Kenan Sofuoglu and Sidi Sport are a winning partnership. On his victorious rides throughout the season and all the way to his triumph on the highest step of the World Championship podium, Sofouglu was wearing Sidi Vortice boots, the number one footwear for speed and track.
