The Sunday morning of the Most round bears the signature of Toprak Razgatlioglu, who with incredible clarity and coldness manages to keep the pressure of Jonathan Rea, winning the Superpole Race. The Yamaha rider takes the lead right away and manages to contain the attacking attempts of the reigning champion to the point of inducing him to make a mistake. In the final, the Kawasaki rider also folds to Scott Redding, who overtakes him and takes second position.
Razgatlioglu makes no mistake, passing under the checkered flag with a half-second advantage over the Ducati rider, also second this morning, as in Race 1. The Briton, who was struggling to keep up with the first two in the initial stages, took advantage of the ‘mistake by Jonathan Rea: with three laps to go, the Kawasaki rider tries the attack on Razgatlioglu to take the lead, but brakes too hard and goes long at Turn 1. Coming back, he has to queue but finds Redding on his heels , which doesn’t take too long to get over it.
The Turkish of Yamaha now narrows the gap in the standings to minus seven and, on his 100th start, takes his tenth victory in his career, the fifth in a row. He is the first Yamaha rider to win five consecutive races, the last was Ben Spies in 2009. All in all he also celebrates Jonathan Rea, who with the third position of the Superpole Race conquers his 200th podium.
Andrea Locatelli remains at the foot of the podium, who tries to undermine third position in the first laps, but does not have enough pace to maintain it and is satisfied with fourth place. Behind him is Tom Sykes with the BMW, the British manages to contain the attacks of the arrembanti Garrett Gerloff and Alex Lowes, who after a good battle are sixth and seventh respectively. Axel Bassani closes in eighth position: the Italian is the second of the Ducati riders and is the author of a solid performance, passes under the checkered flag behind Gerloff and Lowes, but gives battle to the end. Close the top 10 Alvaro Bautista and Michael Ruben Rinaldi, ninth and tenth respectively.
Opaque race for the Romagna, who with the factory Ducati pays 12 seconds from the top, but keeps the BMW of Michael van der Mark behind him, 11th. Less convincing performance also for Marvin Fritz, 12th with the Yamaha of the Yart team. It is worse than his retired teammate Karel Hanika. Leon Haslam, 13th, and Chaz Davies, 14th are not smiling either.
