Toprak does it again in Magny-Cours and gets another stunning win in Superpole Race after an astonishing comeback once again. Turkish rider who won Race 1 yesterday had indeed to start again from 16th position of the grid due to a bad Superpole session where he struggled a lot under rain condition but was able to join the top package immediately to snatch again the victory from Jonathan Rea.
It was not a chaotic start as we saw yesterday but still a really funny one, with Michael Van Der Mark who tried again to lead from the beginning taking first place followed by Jonathan Rea, while Leon Haslam was third initially but was overtaken really soon by a furious Chaz Davies who had to redeem himself after the crash of Race 1, Alvaro Bautista and Sam Lowes, with the Spaniard who recovered a lot of positions but was not able to go over 5th position.
Anyway, Razgatlioglu came like a torpedo from behind and with a lot of fast laps joined Van Der Mark and Jonathan Rea after just few laps and made immediately his moves to jump into 1st position. Reigning World Champion tried once again to resist to the Turkish but Toprak was amazing on defending his position not letting any chance to his rival. The Briton still tried a late move at the last lap, but went wide giving to Razgatlioglu the chance to run away and win his second race of the weekend in Magny-Cours.
