Scott Redding has claimed a dominant San Juan WorldSBK race two victory, while Jonathan Rea got the better of Toprak Razgatlioglu for second. 

The opening laps produced stunning racing as Razgatlioglu, Redding, Rea and Axel Bassani all exchanged positions on several occasions. 

A double mistake from Razgatlioglu at turn six on back-to-back laps allowed Rea through, however, the Yamaha man responded quickly to regain the lead at turn nine. 

Redding then came past Rea before taking the lead from Razgatlioglu on lap four. The Ducati rider then made a mistake at turn nine which allowed both razgatlioglu and Rea back ahead. 

Rea continued to pressure Razgatlioglu and made two separate moves momentarily stick at turn six. 

But as was the case early on, Razgatlioglu managed to get back ahead on the same lap. Redding was able to stay close in third, while Bassani struggled to keep touch. 

With 13 laps to go, Redding regained second from Rea heading into turn one. Redding then got through on Razgatlioglu at turn six - same lap, but once again the Turkish rider responded at the very next corner.

Yet another move from Redding was incoming with 12 laps to go, this time the move was enough to stop Razgatlioglu from getting back through. Redding's first clear lap in the lead saw him pull out a near one second gap. 

Back-to-back fastest laps from Redding saw his lead improve to 1.2 seconds, while Rea remained close to Razgatlioglu. 

After several attempts at taking P2, Rea finally made a move on Razgatlioglu stick with six laps to go. The Yamaha rider seemed to be struggling a lot with rear grip, something we hadn’t seen all weekend. 

Redding then built a three second lead over Rea, while Bassani led Michael Rinaldi in fourth. Although time gaps fluctuated between the top five, positions were unchanged through to the chequered flag.
