Just as last week: Jonathan Rea keeps on extending his own records at the World Superbike Championship. Again he won two of the three races last weekend, this time in Estoril (POR), where the six-time World Champion had not won before. His wins 102 and 103 extend his all-time win record. He finished third in the first race of the weekend. Scott Redding (ENG) won the race that Rea did not win, again.
