Phillip Island WorldSBK Test Day 1 Results: Razgatlioglu Leads As Last Test Starts

With the WorldSBK season due to kick off next weekend, the teams and riders get one last chance to prepare for 2020, with testing taking place on Monday and Tuesday. The first day of the test did not run entirely smoothly, Phillip Island's notorious winds and brief showers chasing riders on and off track, with a smattering of red flags thrown into the mix.

Toprak Razgatlioglu leads the way after the end of the first day, the Pata Yamaha rider just a fraction faster than Tom Sykes on the BMW in second and Loris Baz on the Ten Kate Yamaha in third. Less than four hundredths separates the top three.

Returning champion Jonathan Rea ended the first day in fourth place on the Kawasaki, a quarter of a second ahead of former teammate Leon Haslam on the brand new Honda CBR1000RR-R. Haslam, in turn, was four hundredths faster than Aruba Ducati rider Scott Redding. The field was close, the first nine riders within a second.

Testing concludes on Tuesday.
