The pair were separated by a miniscule amount on track and almost came to blows in the closing stages of the race

The MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship continues its summer break and we are continuing to look back at some of the key moments from the first half of the 2022 season. This time, we look back at the final race from the first half of the season at the Autodrom Most and the Czech Round. In the Tissot Superpole Race, Toprak Razgatlioglu (Pata Yamaha with Brixx WorldSBK) and Jonathan Rea (Kawasaki Racing Team WorldSBK) battled it out throughout the final lap. As they approached Turn 15, Rea looked to make a move on the reigning Champion for victory, but Razgatlioglu’s leg-dangling defence forced Rea to make adjustments and take a trip through the gravel. Watch the incredible last lap battle with the video at the top of this page.
