The first race of the 2020 campaign set up the rest of the season in perfect fashion with the top three separated by just 0.041s
As part of a series of videos looking back on an incredible 2020 MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship, WorldSBK.com is making one race available for FREE between April 21st and April 30th for fans to look back on. Today is the turn of Race 1 from the Australian Round, which set the tone for the rest of the season with drama throughout. Jonathan Rea’s (Kawasaki Racing Team WorldSBK) title defence got off to the worst possible start while Scott Redding (Aruba.It Racing – Ducati), Toprak Razgatlioglu (Pata Yamaha with BRIXX WorldSBK), then-teammate Michael van der Mark and Alex Lowes (Kawasaki Racing Team WorldSBK); the top three separated by just 0.041s. It would be the closest podium of the season and the second closest of all-time, setting up a phenomenal season of competitive action. You can watch the full race for FREE at the top of this article.
