Scott Redding Takes His Third Win Of The Season In The Czech Republic.

Championship leader Kawaski’s Jonathan Rea took his 200th podium finish in the Superpole Race earlier this morning, Rea could only make it a third place finish. The atmosphere on the grid for Race Two was tense as all-three of the riders on the front row of the grid desperately needed to take the win. PATA Yamaha’s Toprak Razgatlioglu was on Pole position, Aruba.IT Racing Ducati’s Scott Redding in second place and Kawasaki’s Jonathan Rea in third.

The start was a carbon copy of the previous two races with Toprak leading into Turn One, his team-mate Locatelli made it into second place, there were some crashes lower down the field after Axel Bassani crashed at Turn One. Redding was in third place, just in front of Jonathan Rea. Alex Lowes got up-to fifth place.

Redding was itching to get past Locatelli but the Italian was giving up on his second place position. Redding managed to slide his Ducati machinery up the inside of Locatelli a lap later and challenged Toprak for the first place position. Redding passed Toprak at the start of lap five, the Brit made it look easy.

Scott got the bit between his teeth and started to make a gap between himself and Toprak. Rea was still in fourth place, with his team-mate in fifth. Rea just didn’t seam to have the pace to catch the leading trio.

Rea got some momentum on lap nine and passed Locatelli, taking third place from the Italian. There was a fight going on for sixth place between BMW’s Tom Sykes, Honda’s Leon Haslam, Ducati’s Rinaldi and BMW’s Michael Van der Mark.

By lap 13 the leading duo had completely dropped the rest of the field, it has been two months since Scott last won a race, could he keep his cool and lead his Ducati machinery to another victory? The gap was 1.4s between Scott and Toprak by lap 17. Rea was 6.8s behind Toprak in third place, not what the Championship leader is used to!

Aruba.IT Ducati’s Scott Redding rode a perfect race to take the Race Two Victory, Toprak had to settle for second place, Rea secured third place on the podium. Locatelli finished in fourth place, Rinaldi won the battle for fifth place, Alex Lowes just managed to hang on to sixth place.

Jonathan Rea leads the championship by just three points, Scott is 47 points adrift from Toprak. It’s all to play for when the World Superbike Championship heads to The Pirelli Navarra Round.
