Jonathan Rea won his fifth successive World Superbikes title in style as he triumphed in Race 2 at Magny-Courts.

Alvaro Bautista Arce missed out on the opportunity to push Rea for the title when he was taken out of Race 2 by clashing with Toprak Razgatlioglu.

That meant Bautista bagged no points for the race, handing his rival the championship victory.

It was Rea's fifth title in a row.

Earlier, Razgatlioglu had fought back to win the WSBK Superpole in Magny-Cours, pipping Jonathan Rea to the flag.

Yamaha's Michael van der Mark came in third.

The Turkish Puccetti Racing rider had made it two out of two this weekend as he gained 11 places in the opening two laps to set up another battle with his rival from Kawasaki.

An error from Rea on Turn 5 allowed Razgatlioglu past and handed him victory.
