The Magny-Cours race was marked by an epic battle between two world champions and the MV Agusta F3, with the MV Agusta F3 leading a number of laps before taking a well deserved third place on the podium.
Christian Iddon led the race right from the start before eventually splitting the lead with reigning world champion Kenan Sofuoglu and the new 2013 champion Sam Lowes. After a 20 lap battle Christian finished in third position and obtained his first ever World Supersport podium. The F3 once again responded to the demands of running with the leaders and was able to showcase its exceptionally high level of competitiveness as a result of the perfect set-up of both the engine and chassis. The Englishman was able to demonstrate his true potential with a race long battle for the lead while exhibiting the determination and focus needed to fight for the win all the way through to the final lap.
Giovanni Castiglioni, President and Managing Director of MV Agusta, had this to say about the podium: “We are very satisfied with the results obtained in this first season. With the developments that we are working on, we are sure that we'll be even more competitive next year and able to continually battle with the leaders”.
