Razgatlioglu got a strong start from second on the grid as he got ahead of pole sitter Rea. The same couldn’t be said about Redding who’s sluggish getaway saw him lose a place to Tom Sykes. 

However, Sykes outbraked himself and therefore ran wide at turn one which allowed Redding and Michael Rinaldi through. 

Rea attempted to gain the lead back from Razgatlioglu on lap two, but it was instead Redding who capitalised on the pair’s battle. 

Redding dived to the inside of Rea at the penultimate corner after the Kawasaki man ran slightly wide the corner prior, while an impressive move on Razgatlioglu just two corners later into turn one saw the Ducati rider take the lead.

Redding then began to gap Rea and Razgatlioglu to the tune of two seconds by the end of lap six. Razgatlioglu then managed to get ahead of Rea on lap seven for second spot.

With ten laps to go, Razgatlioglu took five tenths out of Redding’s lead which saw the gap go under a second for the first time since lap six.

But just one lap later, huge drama ensued as Rea made an uncharectiristic mistake and crashed. 

The six-time series champion managed to re-join and looked on course for minor points, however, Rea then crashed for a second time, while Razgatlioglu took the lead from Redding on the same lap.

Redding responded going into turn one, but on the final lap with just two corners to spare, Razgatlioglu completed one of the overtakes of the year as he braked extremely late and managed to block-pass the Ducati man to take victory. 

Andrea Locatelli profited from Rea’s crash to secure a second consecutive WorldSBK podium.

Chaz Davies and Alex Lowes both crashed early on at the same turn; no contact was made between the two, while Tito Rabat also went down with 13 laps to go at turn one. Jonas Folger, Loris Cresson and Jayson Uribe also retired from the race. Karel Hanika and Alessandro Delbianco also retired due to early race falls, while the same happend to Michael Van Der Mark late on.
