Heading up the 50th all-British podium and taking a 250th win for Great Britain, Jonathan Rea racked up some big numbers as Sunday action kicks off!

Race action burst into life at the WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca in California, as the Tissot Superpole Race got underway under blissful blue skies. In a dramatic opening lap which saw Alvaro Bautista (ARUBA.IT Racing – Ducati) taken out by Toprak Razgatlioglu (Turkish Puccetti Racing) at Turn 2, a red flag soon came out for a big accident at the top of the Corkscrew, when Alessandro Delbianco (Althea Mie Racing Team) hit J.D. Beach (Attack Performance Estenson Yamaha). Both riders were relatively OK, although their machines were not so.
