Redding got the perfect launch as he led into turn one, however, an even faster starting Andrea Locatelli came from fourth to challenge the Ducati rider. 

Locatelli momentarily took the lead at turn five, but Redding and Toprak Razgatlioglu got through on the Italian after he ran wide. 

Rea got through one corner later on Locatelli, before the Pata Yamaha man was relegated to sixth after Alex Lowes pushed him off track at turn nine. 

Locatelli regrouped to get back into fourth, while Rea moved into second behind Razgatlioglu. 

The front three remained the same as the race went on, but on laps 12 and 13 Razgatlioglu upped the pace and began to pull clear. 

With just five laps to go, Rea had another close moment with the front end of his Kawasaki which allowed Redding to get close. 

Redding tried to get ahead going into turn one on the following lap, however, Rea made a nice switch-back to stay in front. Rea’s defence only lasted one more lap though, as Redding gained second place at turn 13.

Razgatlioglu’s lead of just over one second was too much for Redding to overcome as they finished 1-2, while Rea was third - one place ahead of Locatelli - took his third consecutive fourth place of the weekend.  

Chaz Davies and Garrett Gerloff both retired on lap one after Davies crashed into the American. Leandro Mercardo also suffered an early race crash but was able to remount and continue.  

Team HRC’s Leon Haslam retired from the race after crashing out at turn two with nine to go. 

The start to race two was delayed after Kohta Nozane had a problem on the grid. The Japanese rider was originally moved to the side of the track, before race officials assisted the GRT Yamaha rider to pit lane. 

As riders set off for their second warm-up lap, Lucas Mahias encountered issues on the grid. The French rider was then given a double long-lap penalty after returning to the grid late.

Superpole race 

Scott Redding takes his third consecutive WorldSBK victory - second from two at Navarra during the Superpole race.

Toprak Razgatlioglu made a brilliant start as he gained five spots heading into turn one, while Redding took the lead from Jonathan Rea as was the case in race one. 

After a chaotic first four laps which saw Redding, Rea and Razgatlioglu all lead, Redding showed his extra pace to pull clear on laps five and six. 

Andrea Locatelli secured his second fourth place finish of the weekend after coming out on top in his battle with Alex Lowes.

Razgatlioglu had no answer for the front two as Rea started to close in on Redding with two laps to go. Rea got within two tenths, but Redding held on for his second win from two.
