2020 Catalunya World Superbike FP1 Result: Razgatlioglu Heads Yamaha Domination

After two weekends at a track that doesn't favour the Yamahas, Toprak Razgatlioglu headed a trio of blue bikes in the top three spots, joined by Michael van der Mark and independent rider Garrett Gerloff. Alvaro Bautista capitalised on his improved pace fourth fastest and Jonathan Rea held off Michael Ruben Rinaldi for fifth and sixth places.

There was an abundance of laps being cancelled by exceeding track limits as riders got used to World Superbike's first visit to this track and replacement rider Jonas Folger was welcomed to the paddock by a bird flying across his path, getting hit by his Yamaha down the straight.

Toprak & Michael vdM I expected to be fast. Garrett Gerloff is a surprise. Well done G.G.31 ! Welcome back Jonas Folger.

Good speed from the Honda, Alvaro Bautista knows his way around this circuit! Haslam & Takahashi will improve.

Michael RR fastest Ducati, "too tall" Chaz Davies achieves the best top speed on the duck. Redding must have done a lot of laps around Catalunya as well. Hoping Scott can take some points back from Jonathan Rea & keep the championship interesting.

Plenty of race action this weekend.
