Fifth in race one as he continues to push for the second factory Aruba.it Ducati seat in 2023, Axel Bassani was fastest during the initial stages of Warm-up. 

An impressive lap time from Razgatlioglu saw the reigning World Superbike champion go half a second clear of Rea. 

Bassani reduced Razgatlioglu’s lead after splitting the two 2021 title rivals, before Iker Lecuona jumped up to P2 - +0.356s off the Yamaha rider.

A time of 1:31.650s saw Rinaldi move to the top of the leaderboard with five minutes remaining, while team-mate Alvaro Bautista was finally on-track after choosing to remain in the garage during the opening stages.

Despite challenging Rinaldi’s top time on several occasions late on, Rea remained second overall with Razgatlioglu, Bautista and Scott Redding rounding out the top five.

Bautista wins Most World Superbike race one

While Toprak Razgatlioglu and Jonathan Rea were the expected challengers for victory, which was the case for much of the race, it was Bautista who came through to ultimately dominate at Most. 

Able to stay in touch during the early laps, Bautista got faster and faster as the race developed before back-to-back overtakes on Razgatlioglu and Rea saw him take the lead. 

Bautista had to contend with pressure from Scott Redding, who like Bautista got stronger as the 22 lap race unfolded. His seventh win of the 2022 campaign, Bautista now leads the championship by 29 points.

Following Saturday’s race one it was announced that current Bonovo Action BMW rider Eugene Laverty will take up a co-owner and rider coach role with the team. It means the former MotoGP rider will bring an end to his WorldSBK career that lasted a total of ten seasons. 

BSB rider Ryan Vickers made his World Superbike debut for Pedercini Kawasaki on Friday, as did Prasek for Rohac & Fetja Motoracing BMW. Making his second consecutive World Superbike start, Peter Hickman was also in action for the factory BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team, replacing the injured Michael Van Der Mark. 

Fresh off a new one-year deal with BMW, Van Der Mark, who has missed every round except his home race in Assen, will make his return to action following the summer break at Magny-Cours.
