Relive the first ever South American WorldSBK race at the all-new Circuito San Juan Villicum

With the 2021 MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship’s 12th round on the horizon – the Motul Argentinean Round at the Circuito San Juan Villicum – relive the first ever race held at the circuit back in 2018. It was WorldSBK’s first venture to South America and at the all-new San Juan venue and with a picturesque backdrop of the Andes mountains, it was a stunning inauguration. The 48th different circuit on the WorldSBK calendar saw Marco Melandri go from his last ever pole position as the Ducati rider leading the field, but it would be a battle, as Jonathan Rea took another victory in 2018 and thus Kawasaki’s 125th. There was also a charge from Toprak Razgatlioglu, with the 2018 rookie grabbing a second career podium. However, with drops of rain in the middle of the race, it was by no means an easy first race in Argentina.
