As we head into this weekend's final round of the 2008 European  
Superstock 600 Championship at Portimao, the permutations for the  
final series standing look to be very, very interesting...

Frenchman Loris Baz (Yamaha) is already established as Champion on 168  
points. Currently second in the series on 121 points, Czech Republic  
rider Patrick Vostrarek (Honda) is not a factor - he will again be  
guest riding in the World Supersport race ahead of a planned switch to  
that championship in 2009.

Italian Marco Bussolotti (Yamaha) currently lies third on 118 points.  
If StoneBaker Racing's Gino Rea (Yamaha - fifth at the moment with 107  
points) were to win Sunday's race, teammate Dan Linfoot finish second  
(presently fourth on 112 points) and Bussolotti came third, then the  
Italian would take the runner-up spot with 134 points. Rea and Linfoot  
would tie on 132 points but Linfoot would take third place overall,  
with his two race wins to Rea's one pushing the Londoner back into  
fourth spot.


Currently sixth in the series, Daniele Beretta (Suzuki) cannot jump up  
in the standings as he only has 78 points.

BUT if Linfoot were to win with Rea second and Bussolotti third, then  
Dan Linfoot would be crowned runner-up on 137 points, Bussolotti would  
finish third overall and Rea fourth on 127 points.

But then again, don't expect Loris Baz to be hanging around at the  
back of the field. Bussolotti won at Donington, so why not again?  
Maybe Alex Lowes (Kawasaki) will keep his run of form going from the  
last round at Magny Cours, where he finished second. And, of course,  
all of the riders in the pack want to snatch the circuit's maiden  
Superstock 600 win and put themselves into the record books.

Which kinda means....

....pretty much everything's up for grabs between Dan Linfoot, Marco  
Bussolotti and Gino Rea this weekend - should be great!
