Scott takes superb victory in Race 2 in Argentina
The spectacular Circuit of San Juan (Argentina) offered great entertainment to fans from all over the world. Race-2 of the twelfth round of the 2021 WorldSBK season ended with an extraordinary victory for Scott Redding (second in the morning Superpole).
It was a spectacular last lap for Scott who – after having chased Razgatlioglu (Yamaha) for the whole race – set the new track record (1’37.345) and took the lead in the second sector. The Turkish rider’s reaction, however, came immediately. Under the chequered flag Razgatlioglu won by only 46 thousandths of a second.
Scott was the protagonist of a sensational race. In the first 10 laps the English rider battled with Razgatlioglu (Yamaha), Rea (Kawasaki) and Bassani (Ducati), creating an exciting duel. From lap 11, after passing Razgatlioglu, Scott pushed harder, setting one fast lap after another, taking the chequered flag by a wide margin.

“It was a fantastic race, I had a lot of fun. Racing on this circuit is really nice and the Argentinean fans gave me great energy. Honestly, in some moments I had the impression of being in a ‘home-gp’. It’s a shame about Race 1 but I’m still very happy for this victory. The team did a fantastic job. I can’t wait to be in Indonesia. It will be the first time for everyone on that circuit: the other riders will feel the sensations that I have often felt not only this weekend but also in the last two seasons”.
