Bulega, though, was still over 0.4 seconds ahead of Alvaro Bautista in FP2, while Remy Gardner and Andrea Iannone also dipped into the 1:33s.

Razgatlioglu, despite a crash in the middle of the session that called his afternoon early, was fifth, ahead of Iker Lecuona by 0.001 seconds. Alex Lowes took seventh, ahead of Sam Lowes, Dominique Aegerter, and Michael Ruben Rinaldi who rounded out the top 10.

FP1

Toprak Razgatlioglu was fastest in ominous fashion in WorldSBK FP1 at Misano, with over 0.3 seconds separating him from second place.

It was Alex Lowes, fresh off re-signing for Kawasaki's new Bimota project for 2025, who was closest to Razgatlioglu, but 0.560 down.

Lowes had been fastest early in the session, before a red flag came out for Philipp Oettl, whose GMT94 Yamaha expired exiting turn six.

Razgatlioglu dominated from then on, though, lapping multiple times in the 1:33s, when the rest couldn't manage one lap below 1:34.

Nicolo Bulega was third-fastest, ahead of Axel Bassani and Andrea Iannone. Alvaro Bautista was sixth, and Michael van der Mark in seventh was the final rider to lap within a second of Razgatlioglu's best. Jonathan Rea, Remy Gardner, and Ducati wildcard Michele Pirro rounded out the top 10.
