Toprak Razgatlioglu Stormed To Victory To Take The First Ever World Superbike Superpole Race At The Autodrom Most.
Race One yesterday at the Autodrom Most was full of action! Kawaski’s Jonathan Rea crashed out of the race, Aruba.IT Racing Ducati’s Scott Redding had harsh words with PATA Yamaha’s Toprak Razgatloglu in parc fermé after the race, regarding the over take move the Turkish rider used to take the Race One victory, would the tension still be in the air today?
It was Race one winner PATA Yamaha’s Toprak who was first into Turn one, Ducati’s Scott Redding got pushed back to fourth place, PATA Yamaha’s Locatelli was in third place. Redding made the move on Locatelli on lap two to take third place, Scott couldn’t afford to let Toprak and Rea to get away.
BMW’s Tom Sykes was behind Locatelli in fifth place. Rea was trying his up-most to pass Toprak, but the Turkish rider was just too good on the brakes as usual. By lap five Scott was catching the leading duo, it was a high risk task for the British rider with the tight twists and turns of the Czech Republic Circuit, but catching the leaders was something he had to do!
On lap eight Rea ran on at Turn one, he managed to hold on to second place, but it meant Scott was right on his back wheel, Scott made his move on the start of the final lap and made it stick taking second place from the Championship leader.
PATA Yamaha’s Toprak took his second win of the weekend, Scott held on to his all-important second place, Rea had to settle for third place, PATA Yamaha’s Andrea Locatelli was fourth, with Britain’s Tom Sykes in fifth.
Jonathan Rea is leading the Championship by just seven points now from Toprak, Race two will be a race of attrition for Rea, Toprak and Scott Redding, all fighting for those all-important 25 points! Will Toprak Razgatlioglu do the treble at the Autodrom Most?
