Reigning WorldSBK king Toprak Razgatlioglu is going for three wins at Mandalika this weekend in order to try to close the gap on series leader Alvaro Bautista but isn’t waiting on the Ducati man to make a mistake.

Razgatlioglu has an 82-point deficit to Bautista with six races left to run and he is not going to leave it to chance.

“I’m very happy to come back here because I have good motivation and good memories from last year when we took the title; it was an unbelievable day,” said Razgatlioglu.

‘Now, we come back for the win as the Championship isn’t easy for me. We’ll just focus on doing a good race. For the Championship, we have a big gap but I’m not waiting for Bautista to crash. My goal is to try for three wins.

“There’s no pressure or stress for me; maybe for Alvaro, it’s starting as he is close to the Championship. In my opinion, he won’t take risks this weekend.”
