The victory was all the more special for the Indian team as their second rider Fabien Foret, who began the race in seventh spot also finished on the podium.
He took the third spot on the victory podium with a timing of 34’37.825 behind Sam Lowes of Takhnich Motorsport.
This was the second time in nine races that both the Mahi Racing riders have finished on the podium. Defending world champion Sofuoglu, who had won the seventh leg in Imola, began the race in second spot behind Lowes but was quick to wrest the initiative and claim 25 points for the winner.
