Toprak Razgatlioglu has won his second consecutive San Juan WorldSBK race of the weekend in what was a photo-finish with Scott Redding. 

As was the case in race one, Razgatlioglu took the lead from Redding heading down to turn one. 

Jonathan Rea made another great start from fifth to third, but after a couple of looks at getting past Redding, it was instead the Ducati rider who challenged Razgatlioglu for the lead heading into turn six. 

Redding used the Ducati’s straight-line speed to get alongside the Yamaha man, however, Razgatlioglu retained the lead thanks to being latest on the brakes. 

Razgatlioglu and Redding began to gap Rea on lap three, before a mistake from Redding allowed Razgatlioglu to pull out over eight tenths. 

Behind the front three was Axel Bassani who got the better of Alex Lowes during the opening few laps. 

While Razgatlioglu’s lead stabilised at around nine tenths for three consecutive laps, a new race lap record from Redding brought that down to half a second with four to go. 

An inevitable move from Redding came on the final lap at turn six, however, the Ducati man ran slightly wide which allowed Razgatlioglu back through. 

As the lap went on, Razgatlioglu looked to have the victory secured before running slightly wide at the penultimate corner. 

The small error gave Redding a good run to the line, but it wasn’t enough to stop Razgatlioglu from taking win #2 this weekend.
