After a drag race between Razgatlioglu and Rea down into turn one, it was the Yamaha rider last on the brakes while Scott Redding managed to separate the two title favorites. 

Rea wasn’t behind Redding for long though as he regained second spot at turn four. 

Pole sitter Tom Sykes was out of the race on lap one as team-mate Michael Van Der Mark crashed into the Brit.

On lap three, Rea attempted two moves for the lead, however, Razgatlioglu responded immediately to stay ahead.

A red flag then came out on lap three as Lucas Mahias and Chaz Davies crashed. Davies was most affected by the incident while Mahias returned to pit lane. 

The Ducati rider was seen being stretchered away, but was able to raise a hand and show consciousness.

When the race got underway for a second time, Razgatlioglu started from pole in what was a revised 5 lap sprint. 

Razgatlioglu and Rea made contact off the start before exchanging first place twice more on the opening lap. 

Rea then got the better of Razgatlioglu at turn nine which allowed Alvaro Bautista and Alex Lowes through. 

However, Razgatlioglu immediately got back ahead of Lowes at turn ten. Lowes ran slightly wide in the process which opened the door for Andrea Locatelli. 

But as Locatelli positioned himself to the inside, the two riders' racing lines crossed which led to Locatelli hitting the back of Lowes and crashing out. 

Redding had to take avoiding action and was relegated to last. At the front. Razgatlioglu got back ahead of Bautista before setting new lap records on the final two laps to close in on Rea. 

But the Yamaha man was unable to make an overtake as they finished 1-2. Bautista, who was passed by Lowes managed to regain third on the final lap.
