Aruba.it Racing-Ducati's Marco Melandri completed the top three, while his team-mate Chaz Davies crashed out with just three laps remaining.

Rea is now 120 points clear at the top of the standings as he looks to make it three titles in a row. The Northern Irishman could potentially be crowned champion in France in a fortnight's time.

Rea had led from start to finish to seal victory in race one on Saturday.
