As he got off from the 10th spot on the grid, Toprak finished 13th at Lap 1, but after having made his way through the pack he was able then to start his recover and complete a master piece.
After having found his rhythm, Razgatlioglu went pass Sykes and Savadori and lowered the gap between himself end the first three contenders.
Toprak overtook Lowes and without being intimidated at the final lap he attacked reigning world champion Jonathan Rea with precision getting into second position and becoming the first ever Turkish podium finisher in the WorldSBK championship in history.
Wild card Leon Haslam completed a difficult weekend at his home venue. As he was ninth at the end of Race 1, the British rider crashed out in Race 2 while he was battling for the lead. He rejoined the race but at lap 8 he was finally forced to retire missing the chance to finish the weekend with a strong result as he was proving to be able to do.
