Scott wins Superpole race and takes P2 in Race 2 to close fantastic Navarra weekend
Scott Redding was one step away from a perfect weekend: after the Race-1 win, he managed to top the Superpole Race and claim the second place in Race-2.
P1 – As in Race 1, Scott Redding’s start was perfect and allowed him to take the lead. On Lap 3 he was involved in a stunning fight with Rea (Kawasaki) and Razgatlioglu (Yamaha) but he reacted immediately: he took the first position on the next lap, and he scored his second consecutive win of the weekend.
P2 – Once again Scott’s start was perfect such as the battle with Rea (Kawasaki) and Razgatlioglu (Yamaha) who takes the lead. The podium group had the same race pace until 3 laps to the end, when Redding attacked Rea to take the second final position.
At the end of the Pirelli Navarra Round, Scott Redding reduces to 38 points the gap from the leader of the Superbike World Championship standings and Ducati leads the manufacturers’ standings with 334 points, 3 more than Yamaha and 9 more than Kawasaki.

“It was a really positive weekend. Two wins and a second place: to be honest, is an exciting result. During Race 2 I thought a lot about the strategy, I could have pushed but at the same time, I didn’t want to take unnecessary risks. The fight for the World Championship is open and it is necessary to think in these terms. I thank the team for the work they have done. We have great confidence”.
