Young Turkish rider Toprak Razgatlıoglu is a protégé of countryman Kenan Sofuoglu - the most successful rider in World Supersport 600 with five titles and 43 wins to his name. Toprak has learned from his mentor, spectacularly challenging some of the best in the business. He joined Pata Yamaha for the 2020 campaign, scoring a win on his first outing with the team and taking two further victories on his way to fourth in the standings.
Toprak’s potential was clear from a young age, with success across a number of categories, starting with four Turkish Motocross Championship titles as a child before competing in his first 600cc circuit race at age 13. Fast forward just a few years to when he entered the world stage in 2015, and Toprak won the European Superstock 600 Championship on his first attempt.
At Donington in 2018, he became the first Turkish rider to score a WorldSBK podium finishing second in only his 12th start. In 2019, the 24-year-old took his first two wins in stunning style and signed as an official Yamaha rider at the end of that year.
Toprak won on his sensational Yamaha debut at Phillip Island in 2020, taking two more convincing victories in Estoril at the end of the year.
2021 proved to be one of the greatest title battles in WorldSBK history, with Toprak facing off with Jonathan Rea for the world championship crown. In the end, the Turkish rider reigned supreme, taking 13 victories, 29 podiums and three pole position to be crowned champion.
In 2022, the Turkish star was once again locked in a fierce championship battle, alongside Rea and Ducati's Alvaro Bautista. Toprak missed out on a second consecutive title, but ended the season with more wins (14) than in 2021, as well as 29 podiums, and four pole positions. He also became Yamaha’s most successful rider in WorldSBK with 30 wins, surpassing the previous record held by Noriyuki Haga.
In 2023, Toprak has only one goal in mind: to take back the FIM Superbike World Championship title.
