Pata Yamaha’s Toprak Razgatlioglu is still hunting his first win of 2022 after nine races of his WorldSBK title defence.

Razgatlioglu has been on the podium in all but one - thanks to the infamous Assen collision - but the Turk is itching to get back to winning ways.

Misano was the catalyst for his championship charge last year, so will history repeat itself this weekend?

“We made some good steps in Estoril, first at the race and also in the test – thanks to the team for making this test, it was good for me and the bike!” Razgatlioglu confirmed. “Now, after training at home for two weeks, I am happy to go to Misano, it is a track I enjoy a lot.

“Before, the Estoril test was very positive because we improve a lot the rear grip which was a problem in the last round. The team and Yamaha is working to improve the R1, and in the last races I can ride more like myself and it was very close and I enjoyed the races!

“We take good points for the championship, but now I hope we are fighting for the win again in Misano.”
