SBK 2022, UK Grand Prix: Toprak and Bautista: Back to the past? – Superbike
The first race in Donington may have turned the tide of the championship. Razgatlioglu wins his first long race, while ghosts of the past seem to be returning to Bautista
16 July 2022
R was found.EA dominates practice and super bowl, but then in race 1 he has to bow to Razgatlioglu. Bautistawho avoided in the first four rounds a “hand in hand” fight with Riya and the fall. Whether it was a bump, as the Spaniard said, or he made a mistake, in fact his ordeal began with a similar fall in 2019 at Jerez.
How will Alvaro react to this slip? Who could have negated his advances in ranking from two of his terrible followers? Rhea seemed to have come up with the perfect formation, but as always when temperatures rise a Ninja suffers, and perhaps without Bautista crashing, he had to settle for third.
Those who looked like dominating the tournament today raised the white flag against the overwhelming Razgatlioglu. But there are also questions for the Turks: it was a flash in the pan or Toprak found his R1? The one that last year allowed him to express all his great talent?
Even behind the adorable three, the show is not lacking as well as the reasons for the interest. Reading near the podium with BMW which has a new rear swingarm. But is the M1000RR a competitor now or is it just the talent of the Englishman on his original course? Pasani in front of Rinaldi? All questions are waiting for answers and tomorrow there are two races that can actually give us some answers
