WorldSBK Most Race Two: Scott Redding takes victory

Scott Redding stormed to victory in Race Two at Most beating the Yamaha’s.

Scott Redding took two victories today in the WorldSBK race, emerging as the race victor before proposing to his now-fiancée on the podium following his win, no wonder he was so annoyed at missing out on the win yesterday as he’s had this one planned for quite a while. Redding pulled off a superb race to get past both Yamaha’s to take the victory in the Czech Republic.

The race started well for Yamaha with both Toprak Razgatlioglu and Andrea Locatelli occupying the 1-2 positions and Redding in third place but after yesterday Redding was feeling parched, he needed the taste of the victory champagne and armed with the knowledge that he can be more aggressive on Razgatlioglu he went on a charge, first he had to get past Locatelli who didn’t make it easy for the Brit, playing it defensive holding the British rider up before he was eventually able to dispose of the Italian with Jonathan Rea later on relegating Locatelli to fourth place.

Next up was Toprak, Toprak was never going to be an easy job, his confidence in his machine and his ability to be aggressive but strong are unparalleled and he made it pretty difficult for Redding to get past, the pair trading places multiple times. Today Redding was too strong, stopping Razgatlioglu from doing the triple and taking the title lead, he overtook him and put a 3.5 second lead between them relegating the Turk to second place, with Rea in third it means we leave Most with three points separating Rea and Razgatlioglu, if Razgatlioglu had won, he’d lead by two points. I think Rea owes Redding a beer!

In fifth place behind Locatelli there was a four-way scrap between Michael Ruben Rinaldi, Alex Lowes, Michael van der Mark, and Garrett Gerloff with the four different manufacturers going head to head to fight for fifth place, eventually, the scrap was won by the Ducati of Rinaldi with Gerloff the fastest independent rider in P8, Tom Sykes and Alvaro Bautista rounded off the top 10.

Chaz Davies had a very strong race despite finishing in P12, the Welshman was caught up in a first-lap incident forcing him to fight his way through the field to finish in a decent P12.
