At the start of the race, the fight for victory involved Bautista, Razgatlioglu and Jonathan Rea (Kawasaki Racing Team WorldSBK). Razgatlioglu took the lead on lap three but Bautista responded quickly, but was in turn overtaken by Rea on lap five in turn 8, who however lost the front and ended up in the gravel.
Bautista returns to the lead and wins ahead of Razgatlioglu, on his sixth podium of the season. Great third place for his box mate Andrea Locatelli who crosses the finish line in front of Axel Bassani (Motocorsa Racing), who receives a penalty from the marshalls and is relegated by one position.
Bassani on the eighth lap in turn 5 is passed by Locatelli. At the last chicane the Veneto goes green and therefore Dominique Aegerter (GYTR GRT Yamaha WorldSBK Team) takes advantage of the relegation of a place imposed on the rider from Feltre; this fourth place for Aegerter represents the best result in WorldSBK. Excellent weekend for the GRT Yamaha team with the sixth place of Remy Gardner. Scott Redding (ROKiT BMW Motorrad WorldSBK Team) finished seventh ahead of the rookie Daniel Petrucci (Barni Spark Racing Team) followed by Alex Lowes (Kawasaki Racing Team WorldSBK), who ended up in the gravel during the formation lap and pitted to allow the team to work on his bike before starting from the back of the grid. Tenth place for Michael Ruben Rinaldi (Aruba.it Racing – Ducati).
With Alvaro Bautista’s first place, the Borgo Panigale manufacturer reaches 400 Superbike victories, 10% of which thanks to the Spanish rider.
