Toprak Razgatlioglu has taken the inaugural Most WorldSBK victory thanks to a stunning last lap overtake on Ducati rider Scott Redding, while also gaining valuable points back on championship rival Jonathan Rea who crashed twice.

The Pata Yamaha rider recovered a near two second gap to Redding after being involved in an early battle for second place with Rea, which cost the pair considerable time. 

Razgatlioglu was able to use his harder rear tyre to his advantage as the race went on, before a last lap overtake at the penultimate corner saw him claim the win by just +0.040s. 

It was a brilliant move that saw Razgatlioglu block-pass his way past Redding having failed to make the same move stick three corners earlier. 

An elated Razgatlioglu said: "I am really, really happy because, for me, it’s not an easy race. 

"Every lap I’m pushing, I’m trying not to make a mistake. I won. I try every corner but I’m really happy because I need this position for the championship. 

"I’m really happy for my team because this weekend they did an incredible job. Tomorrow, I try again."

Redding was unhappy with the overtake when speaking post race and even went as far as to say more ‘respect’ was needed as ‘we both would have crashed if I (didn’t) anticipate it’.

Redding added: "You cannot make overtakes (like that); I know he was further back, he was not next to me. To make a move when I had my knee near to the floor... come on, a bit of respect. 

"We know there’s not so much run-off here but we’re trying to do the best we can. Just try and keep it fair. Two times he did. I almost knew he was going to do it so I anticipated it, but if I had committed we both would have crashed. 

"I don’t think that’s very fair racing, but if he wants to race like that, so be it." 

Razgatlioglu’s win was a crucial one for the championship after Rea made another uncharacteristic error - like in race two at Donington - by crashing not once, but twice. The Kawasaki rider’s points lead has been reduced from 37 to 12 points.
