At just 22 years of age, Toprak Razgatlioglu moved up into the World Superbike class in 2018, following a stunning season in the STK1000 Championship. The Turkish rider first got on a bike at the age of five, and secured four Turkish Motocross Championship titles, before competing in his first 600cc race when he was 13. Breaking onto the European scene from 2011, Razgatlioglu entered the Yamaha R6 Dunlop Cup in which he struggled. 2013 saw the youngster secure a place in the Red Bull Rookies Cup, which he raced in alongside the Turkish Supermoto Championship. Fighting in the ever-competitive cup for two seasons, he took his first victory in Germany at the Sachsenring.
2015 welcomed Toprak onto the world stage, as he entered the European Superstock 600 Championship, and won the title in the same season. Naturally progressing into the European Superstock 1000 Championship in 2016, he was battling for the title over the last two seasons but missed out on the overall victory. Making the move up in WorldSBK in 2018 with Kawasaki Puccetti Racing, Razgatlioglu had a strong season as he was able to secure rookie of the year as well as taking two podium finishes in his first year in the top class. 2019 will be the second season in WorldSBK and the Turkish rider looks forward to fighting into the top five.
