WorldSBK Jerez Race 2 Results: Redding dominant in Ducati 1-2

Scott Redding takes his second WorldSBK win of the weekend in Jerez to establish a 24 point lead in the overall standings; Jonathan Rea only sixth

Scott Redding - Ducati [1200]

Scott Redding completed a breakthrough weekend with a second dominant WorldSBK victory in Jerez to establish a comfortable advantage in the overall standings.

Five months on from making his WorldSBK debut in Australia, Redding established himself as the rider to beat around the Spanish venue, notching up his maiden pole position on Saturday and following it up with an impressive first WorldSBK win.

However, he’d step up his game further in Race 2, getting the better of Jonathan Rea at the start of lap two before quickly multiplying his advantage over the opposition in the scorching summer sun.

Chaz Davies attempted to give chase after hustling his way back up to second position, but the Welshman ultimately had no answer to his Ducati team-mate. Nonetheless, the result does mark a welcome 1-2 finish for Ducati on a day Kawasaki appeared to struggle.

Toprak Razgatlioglu completed the podium to make up for his retirement in the Superpole Race, ahead of Michael Ruben Rinaldi, who showed eye-catching pace during the second half of the race to dispatch of the Kawasakis ahead of him and take fourth.

With Alex Lowes in fifth, defending champion Jonathan Rea could only manage sixth place as he slipped 24 points adrift of Redding in the title fight.

Michael van der Mark followed up in seventh, with Alvaro Bautista, Marco Melandri and Garrett Gerloff completing the top ten.
