After yesterday’s stunning Race 1 win, Razgatlıoğlu went on to claim race honours in all three races – along with fastest lap in each and that incredible circuit-record pole position – in a completely dominant weekend for the Turkish star and his R1 WorldSBK.
Teammate Locatelli returned to the podium with a fantastic P3 in the Superpole Race, the first podium since Assen earlier this year after his first ever WorldSBK front-row start yesterday. The team’s Italian rider completed his best weekend of the season with another fine fourth place in Race 2 to match his Race 1 result and round out Yamaha’s best-ever team points haul in the WorldSBK category since the 10-lap Superpole Race was introduced in 2019.
Pata Yamaha with Brixx WorldSBK and the rest of the WorldSBK paddock heads directly to Phillip Island for the season finale next weekend, with track action from 18-20 November. The thrilling southern Australia venue holds fond memories as the site of Razgatlıoğlu’s maiden victory in his first race aboard the Yamaha R1 WorldSBK from Race 1 in February 2020.
