Motul French Round Race (Superpole)
Rea and Razgatlioglu lead the way from the start with Razgatlioglu taking the lead of the race on the second lap of 10 at the Turn 5 Adelaide hairpin. Rea was able to keep Razgatlioglu under pressure throughout the ten laps and this paid off into the Imola chicane on the final lap as Rea made a move for the lead on the final lap. Rea’s lead lasted just a few seconds, though, as Razgatlioglu responded almost instantly as he got up the inside of Turn 15 to take the lead. However, Razgatlioglu was deemed to have exceeded track limits at Turn 10 on the final lap meaning he was demoted one place by the FIM WorldSBK Stewards for the infringement.
