There were thrills and spills across the Pirelli French Round but the tense conclusion to Race 2 is the moment of the weekend

More records and more history were up for grabs as the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship headed to the Circuit de Nevers Magny-Cours for the Pirelli French Round, and it looked like history would be re-written after Jonathan Rea (Kawasaki Racing Team WorldSBK) won Race 1 and the Tissot Superpole Race.

It put Rea on the brink of his sixth consecutive title but Ducati duo Scott Redding (ARUBA.IT Racing – Ducati) and teammate Chaz Davies had other ideas; both playing their part in what was a thrilling conclusion to the weekend as Redding claimed Race 2 victory and Davies and Rea duelled it out for the final podium position right until the last lap.
