Catalunya WorldSBK, Qualifying | Toprak Razgatlioglu scores first BMW pole in Spain

Gold & Goose

Toprak Razgatlioglu secured his first pole position as a ROKiT BMW Motorrad WorldSBK rider after beating Nicolo Bulega to the top spot at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya in Spain.

The Turkish rider produced a new record-smashing lap time of 1m 39.489secs - some eight tenths below Alvaro Bautista’s erstwhile best around the Montmelo venue - to beat Bulega to the top spot by just over a tenth of a second.

A first pole position for BMW since Garrett Gerloff achieved the feat at Magny-Cours last year, Razgatlioglu heads into the opening two of three races with a strong chance to convert that into his first wins for the German marque as he attempts to kick-start his 2024 WorldSBK title campaign.


Andrea Iannone completed the front row for the second race in succession on the Team Go Eleven Ducati in third place, with Michael van der Mark consolidating a promising start to the day for BMW as he headed up row two.

In fifth place, Sam Lowes will get underway further up the order than he did on his debut in Australia, followed by FP3 pace-setting GYTR GRT Yamaha rider Dominique Aegerter in sixth place.

Championship leader Alex Lowes gets away from seventh position, but there is work to do for Alvaro Bautista and Jonathan Rea in 11th and 13th respectively.
