Moto3™: Foggia wins again at Silverstone

The Italian retired from the game in this eventful finish to the race.

A pack race: Here’s the scenario we’ll have witnessed this Sunday in Moto3™, with overtaking at every breath, even at the front of the stage. But in the end, it was Dennis Foggia who stood out on the last lap. The Italian thus achieved the eighth victory of his career, while recovering 25 points from the pair Sergio Garcia (Gaviota GASGAS Aspar Team) – Izan Guevara (Gaviota GASGAS Aspar Team), both forced to retire.

21 men for a win

When the lights went out, poleman Diogo Moreira (MT Helmets – MSI) held the lead, or at least very briefly, because there will actually be many riders leading this Grand Prix: from Izan Guevara to Ryusei Yamanaka (MT Helmets – MSI) via Deniz Öncü (Red Bull KTM Tech3), Tatsuki Suzuki (Leopard Racing), Dennis Foggia or Ayumu Sasaki (Sterilgarda Husqvarna Max). A car of 21 drivers was then drawn. However, the fight will be so intense that Dennis Foggia took advantage at one point to escape very slightly. Not really to the taste of Deniz Öncü, who rushed to make the connection, taking the whole package behind the wheel. The Turk finally got him out of the controls six laps from the finish, before being overtaken by Ivan Ortola (Angeluss MTA Team) and Jaume Masia (Red Bull KTM Ajo), who started 18th and 21st respectively.e.

A twisted end of the race

And then it all went away: Ayumu Sasaki hit Championship leader Sergio Garcia’s steering wheel at Turn 13. Both men ended up on the mat. This incident could have benefited his main Izan Guevara, except that the latter could not prevent the fall of Ivan Ortola moments later. David Muñoz was caught alone, when he was in third position. Same for Tatsuki Suzuki.
