After setting a new circuit record in Superpole, reigning World Superbike Champion Jonathan Rea claimed third place in the opening encounter, battling for the lead for the majority of the race. Team mate Alex Lowes crashed out unhurt whilst running in a strong podium contention position.
On Sunday, the five-time Champion demonstrated his talent by first taking victory in the 10-lap Tissot-Superpole race, before following it up with another win in the full-length Race 2. Taking the chequered flag by nearly two seconds, it marked Rea's 80th win with Kawasaki and gave him a ten point lead in the Championship standings. On the other side of the garage, Lowes was able to battle back from his highside on Saturday to claim sixth and ninth.
Further trophies came in the World Supersport class, with Philipp Öttl taking third in the opening race, his second podium of his rookie season, following it up with fifth in race two, one place behind teammate Lucas Mahias in fourth.
The World Supersport 300 class once again provided fans with two action-packed races, but it was Jeffrey Buis who shone through, taking pole position before doubling up on race wins, his first victories in the class. All six podium positions were claimed by riders racing the Kawasaki Ninja 400.
