Race One

Razgatlioglu produced a stunning race one performance at Donington Park to claim his first WorldSBK win on British soil. 

The Yamaha rider fresh off a new two-year deal came from 13th on the grid to lead after only two laps. 

Razgatlioglu took the lead at turn 11 (Melbourne Loop) from Rea, which turned out to be the race winning overtake. 

Race one began with every rider choosing slick tyres even though the track remained damp in places. This didn’t remain the case for very long though as the sun came out creating a completely dry track by race end.

Scott Redding suffered a fast crash at turn three on lap two, while Christophe Ponsson also went down a few corners later.

There was more drama on lap three, as championship leader Jonathan Rea nearly went down at the same craner curves that caught out Redding. Rea stayed aboard his Kawasaki ZX10-RR but went across the grass and lost three seconds to Razgatlioglu. 

Rea managed to reduce the gap down to 1.5 seconds, however, another costly mistake in sector one saw the gap increase to over three seconds again. Rea eventually finished second in the end - +2.419s down, while team-mate Alex Lowes profited from Gerloff’s crash when running third to claim a race one podium.

The American recovered to finish sixth in the end. Andrea Locatelli was the third rider to crash out of the race. Tito Rabat retired from the race after 13 laps due to a mechanical issue.
