Toprak Razgatlioglu Turns Up the Heat in FP2 at Autodrom Most
In a continuation of form from the previous round at Imola, Toprak Razgatlioglu (Pata Yamaha Prometeon WorldSBK) ran fastest in FP2 at Autodrom Most. In second was GYTR GRT Yamaha WorldSBK Team rider Remy Gardner and in third Danilo Petrucci (Barni Spark Racing Team) aboard his Ducati V4R.
Eslewhere on the grid Michael van der Mark (ROKiT BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team) who passed his medical check at the Autodrom Most. The Dutchman has been recovering from a fractured left femur in a highside at TT Assen back in April. He has missed every round since. He did not complete FP2 at Most after crashing in turn 10. The bike appeared to be heavily damaged and would not return to the session.
There were a number of riders that had lap times deleted due to a yellow flag in turn 17-18. You can find those violations below. Championship leader Alvaro Bautista finished 6th fastest. It appears that Razgatlioglu has found some mid season pace. He has made it clear that the title race is not over. We will see if Bautista has an answer. Currently Bautista has a 70 point lead in the championship standings. Full Fp2 results are below. Superpole will take place tomorrow.
