This race will premiere on tomorrow at 2pm CET and will be available to watch at a later time too!

Rea claimed victory in Race 1 from this weekend and had a huge lead at the top of the Championship ahead of Tom Sykes (now BMW Motorrad WorldSBK) and Davies. In Race 2, Davies and Rea started from sixth and seventh respectively but were running first and second by the end of the opening lap. The pair then engaged in a race-long battle that came to blows at the final corner before a drag race to the finish line; finishing the race with less than a tenth of a second between the two.
