Three from three was the total for Toprak Razgatlioglu after a stunning display at Donington Park on the Pata Yamaha R1 as the Turk now heads to Most.
Aiming to ride the momentum of his maiden hat-trick of victories, the reigning champion is keen to return to the Czech Republic after securing two wins and a second position last season. It’s a tally he hopes to match or better this time out at the resurfaced and refined circuit.
“In Most, like always, I think we will see Johnny and Alvaro very strong, but we will keep fighting for the victory,” Razgatlioglu confirmed ahead of the final round before the summer break. “I like the track and it was a nice fight on the final lap with Scott [Redding] last year.
“There will be some parts of the track with a new asphalt so we will see on Thursday what the changes are like. We’re not looking at the championship yet and I just focus race by race, same as always.
“The goal is only to fight for the win, and after the great feeling and very strong performance in Donington I am excited to ride my R1 again, but we will see what is possible.”
