After attempting to take the lead from Rea at turn five on the opening lap, Razgatlioglu made the same move stick on lap two - Yamaha rider set a new race lap record on the same lap.

Even though Razgatlioglu remained on lap record pace after that, Rea was able to stay with the Turkish rider, while Alex Lowes regained third from Andrea Locatelli. 

As was the case in race one, Leon Haslam led a big group behind the Kawasaki and Yamaha riders. 

However, Haslam slowly went backwards as Michael Van Der Mark, Scott Redding and Alvaro Bautista all got through. 

Redding then got ahead of his future BMW team-mate for fifth at the start of lap six. At the front, Razgatlioglu began to edge away from Rea with three laps to go.

Haslam got back past team-mate Bautista for seventh, while Chaz Davies closed in on both Honda riders. 

What looked like a certain win for Razgatlioglu soon became anything but that on the final lap, as Rea made a stunning move in turn 12 after recovering the gap, however, Razgatlioglu responded into turn 15 and eventually took win #2 of the weekend.
