On Tuesday morning, Toprak Razgatlioglu landed as world champion of the Superbike World Championship 2021 in Istanbul. The 25-year-old Yamaha rider was welcomed like a hero.
It is probably only in these minutes that Toprak Razgatlioglu will realize what will change for him after winning the Superbike World Championship in 2021. When the Yamaha rider landed in Istanbul on Tuesday morning, accompanied by mentor Kenan Soufuoglu and Yamaha race director Andrea Dosoli, he was expected by numerous fans and the media.
“I am really happy. It is an honor to be so welcomed in my country, ”Razgatlioglu told the Anadolu agency. «It was a very difficult season. But we have made our dream come true and we are proud. For the first time in this category a Turk became a champion – and I will work for other titles. I will do my best to get even better. It’s a nice feeling to be back in our country. “
This can only be understood by Kenan Sofuoglu, who, as a five-time supersport world champion, made motorcycle racing known in Turkey.
“So far, Toprak was better known in Indonesia and Italy than in Turkey,” Sofuoglu clarified. After his arrival was broadcast live on television, Razgatlioglu will no longer be able to walk undetected through the Turkish capital in the future.
Red Bull Turkey organized a press conference at which Razgatlioglu then answered questions.
