Toprak Razgatlioglu won the World Superbike Superpole Race Sunday morning at Magny-Cours, in France. Riding his Pata Yamaha Prometeon YZF-R1, the Turkish racer won the 10-lap race by 0.970 second.
Defending Champion Alvaro Bautista was the runner-up on his Aruba.it Racing Ducati Panigale V4R, and Jonathan Rea was a close third on his Kawasaki Racing Team Ninja ZX-10RR.
ROKiT BMW Motorrad factory rider Scott Redding crashed while attempting a pass and took out Bonovo Action BMW’s Garrett Gerloff. Gerloff was forced to retire from the race, but Redding was able to remount and continue, albeit with a Long Lap Penalty for irresponsible riding.
Redding finished 20th.
