Similar feel to Race 2, even with the staggered grid they're using this year. Only difference was that Davies managed to keep it on 2 wheels to the finish. Rea made a very ballsy move on the last lap to try and block pass and they got REALLY close but Davies got underneath and blew the Kawi away.
If Ducati didn't have such a huge motor advantage this would really be a one-sided affair. Those two long straights at Aragon really showed that in a big way. There was no way Rea could hang with either of the Ducs and if they were behind him they could easily draft and pass him at either section.
And same as Race 1, the Yamaha riders were in the mix, the Aprilia guys were surprisingly close to the front, and the Honda guys were a mile away - at least the one still running at the finish...
