After WorldSBK returned to Donington Park, you can catch up on all three races from the UK Round in one easy place!
There was drama everywhere you looked at the Prosecco DOC UK Round as the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship made a welcome return to Donington Park and the United Kingdom. From wet conditions playing havoc as riders looked to set the grid on Saturday, to almost unbelievable starts and costly mistakes from the lead of the race, the UK Round really did have everything.
The racing got underway on Saturday afternoon with Race 1 and it was Toprak Razgatlioglu (Pata Yamaha with BRIXX WorldSBK) who stole the spotlight with an incredible start from 13th place: the Turkish rider was fifth by Turn 1, second by Turn 8 and leading just one-and-a-half laps into the 23-lap race. All 23 laps were filled with action and drama and you can catch up on the FULL race here!
Sunday came around and the Great British weather played its part yet again with a pre-race shower ahead of the Tissot Superpole Race. Tyre selection between intermediate and wet tyres became crucial although experience from Saturday showed the track dried out quickly, with the majority of the field choosing the intermediate tyres. Ten laps of incredible racing followed, and the full race is available to watch here!
Just a few hours later, Race 2 was underway with the threat of rain lingering across the entire 23-lap race. While everyone did opt for slick tyres throughout, a lot of eyes would have been looking at the sky constantly. Rain did not come to pass but the race was not short on drama as Razgatlioglu and Jonathan Rea (Kawasaki Racing Team WorldSBK) battled it out throughout the first half of the race, before an error from Rea cost him even a points finish. Watch Race 2 in its entirety right here!
