A productive, if not perfect, weekend for Jonathan Rea (Kawasaki) saw him stretch his championship points lead over Alvaro Bautista (Ducati) to 81 points. Rea managed to win two of the three races this weekend (while finishing second in the remaining race) while Bautista crashed in both Race 1 and the Superpole race – ultimately injuring his shoulder which caused him to pull out of Race 2.
In the first race on Saturday, Rea was followed home by Chaz Davies (Ducati) and Toprak Razgatlioglu (Kawasaki) in second and third place respectively, while Rea won Sunday’s Superpole race over Davies in second and Tom Sykes (BMW) in third.
The second big race of the weekend was this afternoon, and Davies won his first race of the year convincingly over Rea in second and Razgatlioglu in third. You will find full results for Race 1 here, the Superpole race here and Race 2 here. For additional details and points, visit the official WSB site.
