Rea is bound to win

Jonathan Rea is bound. Not only to win, but to stop Toprak Razgatlioglu if he still wants to qualify for a seventh WorldSBK crown. The duel between the two rivals comes hotter than ever after the latest statements by the British, where he accused the Turk of being very aggressive in his melee on the track and with Yamaha turning a deaf ear to criticism. He focuses on winning races, although already with an eye on the final title with two appointments to go to put the finishing touch on the most closely fought season in Superbikes in recent decades.

It is precisely Rea who has much more to lose in these last races. The current world champion arrives 24 points behind Toprak and needing to win in Race 1 if he wants to avoid the Turk’s first match point. It is worth Razgatlioglu to be ahead of Kawasaki (or add at least one point more than him) to have mathematical options for the title on Sunday. That is why Rea is bound to win. In fact, if he takes the victory in the first race this Saturday, the fight for the title would automatically lengthen until the last appointment, in Indonesia, although with everything of face for the one of Yamaha.

And it is that Toprak, in case of a tie, has a very important advantage: he has ten long-race victories, compared to five for Rea. Which, would also give him the championship. But first you have to focus on Argentina and, there, the Yamaha has it very difficult. He would have to leave San Juan with a distance of 62 points to be champion, on a track where the Kawasaki has always won, except on one occasion. That is, four victories of the five possible that have been disputed on Argentine soil. Conversely, Razgatlioglu has never won there, although he has been on the podium four times. Without a doubt, the battle is very exciting.

Redding doesn’t throw in the towel

It is already a fight in which he is not counted on, But Scott Redding wants to keep his chances of running for the season title alive. The truth is that things would have to be twisted a lot in Argentina so that Ducati’s could enter among the candidates for the crown, but with such an even category, it is better to stay alert of what may happen. That is the goal of the Italian brand and its British driver for the penultimate round of the year. Redding will seek to stay between the podium positions and win a race that reduces the 54-point lead that separates him from Toprak Razgatlioglu. In fact, finishing the weekend in Argentina more than 61 points behind the Turk would be fatal for Ducati’s because it would end his mathematical options for the title. But giving up is never an option.

Play already in another league, but Álvaro Bautista does not want to get off the fight for the podium. With his last great performances in the past rounds and the thorn in Portimao (when he fell on the last lap fighting for the podium), the Spanish wants to say goodbye to Honda in style. It is not known if a victory will be something real, but the Talaverano has shown that HRC is ready to fight assiduously for the podium, although it is late for him. His jump to Ducati is already more than confirmed, although he leaves a good motorcycle to the signings that precede him (and that are still in the air, although, Iker Lecuona has all the ballots).

Aegerter cuddles the Supersport title

Supersport 300 has already closed its season in Portimao with Adrián Huertas as champion, but Supersport carries on. He will accompany the queen class of this championship in Argentina and Indonesia, although it is expected that it will be this weekend when his great champion will be known. Dominique Aegerter is already caressing the crown with her fingertips. The fight for this title has been dragging on for a long time, but luck has not accompanied the MotoE rider as well. But now, both Aegerter and Odendaal arrive blind on a track where they have never raced. For the World Cup leader, everything is more expensive: he can be champion already on Saturday, in Race 1.
