Jonathan Rea claimed his 100th WorldSBK win during the opening race of 2021 at MotorLand Aragon. 

Rea dominated the 18 lap race by leading from start to finish, while a brilliant battle for second saw Alex Lowes pip Toprak Razgatlioglu over the line for second.

The third place finish for Razgatlioglu saw him come from tenth on the grid after losing four spots in qualifying for exceeding track limits. 

Scott Redding put in a late race charge to claim fourth ahead of former team-mate Chaz Davies.

There were a raft of technical issues for riders including Tito Rabat, Leandro Mercado, Samuele Cavalieri and Eugene Laverty who all retired from race one. 

Alvaro Bautista was the lone crasher of the opening race as the Spaniard fell at turn two with only three laps remaining.
