With the MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship on a hiatus from racing, we are taking a look at some of the key moments that have taken place in this incredible 2022 season. This time it’s a trip back to Donington Park and the UK Round where there were huge implications in the title fight after Alvaro Bautista (Aruba.it Racing – Ducati) crashed out of Race 1 on Lap 15 at Goddards, the left-hand hairpin that makes up the final corner of the circuit. With his rivals finishing first and second, his Championship lead had a big chunk taken out of it, but he was able to respond on Sunday with fourth in the Tissot Superpole Race and second in Race 2.
