Toprak Razgatlioglu made it two wins from two in Mandalika after winning a hard-fought battle against Jonathan Rea.

After leading from pole position, Razgatlioglu failed to break clear of the six-time champion during the early stages before an overtake was made from Rea on lap three. 

Continuous battling and overtaking then took place before Razgatlioglu finally made the winning move on lap seven.

Like in Saturday’s Race 1, Razgatlioglu began setting a very hot pace that the Kawasaki rider struggled to match, even though the winning margin was just five tenths.

Third after one of his best performances of the season was Andrea Locatelli, who managed to fend off series leader Alvaro Bautista.

Only fourth, the Ducati rider’s chances of taking the title in Race two are still likely as 71 points separates himself and Razgatlioglu.
