Toprak Razgatlioglu continues his superb form at Portimao by topping WorldSBK Warm-up ahead of Alvaro Bautista

After his impressive P2 in race one, Bautista showed good pace to lead the early stages of Warm-up from Alex Lowes

Razgatlioglu then set a stunning time of 1:40.116s to go four tenths clear of Bautista. 

Struggling to match his title rivals, Jonathan Rea was down in sixth place - eight tenths off the pace being shown by Razgatlioglu. 

While Razgatliolgu remained unchallenged at the top of the timingsheets, team-mate Andrea Locatelli was also making good progress aboard his R1, slotting into fifth spot ahead of Rea before making that P4. 

Bautista remained second ahead of Lowes while Rea finished in seventh spot.
