Two podiums and a top ten #ThaiGP

Moto3: One more podium for Lorenzo Dalla Porta.
This weekend the Motogp main competitions were held for the first time ever in Chang International Circuit of Thailand.
The Leopard Racing rider Lorenzo Dalla Porta started 10th and was able to stay with the leading group for the whole race. Overtaking many riders in just few laps he could catch up with the podium positions and finished in the second place thanks to an incredibile last lap. His teammate Enea Bastianini started 8th and had some difficulties in the first part of te race because of the pain due to the crash in the Qualifying Practice on Saturday. The Italian rider eventually found his pace, recovered what lost in the first laps and started his comeback for the podium. Unfortunately on the last turn he lost the front wheel and was forced to retire when he was 3rd.
Amazing comeback also for the Angel Nieto Team rider Andrea Migno who starting 28th and gained more than fifteen positions, finishing just one place off the top ten, 11th. Unlucky race for his Teammate Albert Arenas who was involved in a crash in the initial laps with the RedBull KTM Ajo rider Darryl Binder when they were within the first ten positions.
Now the Moto3 Championship standing sees Andrea Migno 10th, Lorenzo Dalla Porta 6th, Aron Canet 5th, -86 points and Enea Bastianini 4th, -71 point from the leader Jorge Martin.
Moto2: Four Extreme Components rider in the top ten.
The RedBull KTM Ajo rider Miguel Oliveira started from the 5th place and recovered the 2nd position in just one lap. After a great battle for the victory against Francesco Bagnaia he had to slow his pace down for a problem on the front brake and a not perfect stability on the entering and exiting of the corners and so he got the third position. His teammate Brad Binder was another protagonist of the race. He started 7th and fought with Oliveira for the podium finishing 4th just behind his teammate.
Really positive weekend also for both the Italtrans Racing riders Mattia Pasini and Andrea Locatelli. Pasini starting 4th suffered some overtakes in the first laps, recovered few lost positions and managed the race until the end finishing 6th. His teammate Locatelli gained seven place finishing in the top ten, 9th.
Unlucky race for the Pons Racing rider Lorenzo Baldassarri who thanks to the fastest lap on the QP could start from the pole position. After leading the race for the first laps he made a mistake and was forced to recover. Unfortunately trying his luck he pushed too much and was forced to a premature end for a crash.
Now the Moto2 Championship standing sees Mattia Pasini 8th, Lorenzo Baldassarri 4th, -127 points, Brad Binder 3rd, -102 points and Miguel Oliveira 2nd, -28 points from the leader Francesco Bagnaia.
MotoGP: Bautista back to the top ten.
Once again the Angel Nieto Team rider Alvaro Bautista was protagonist of a fantastic race weekend being fast since the first Free Practice sessions where he was the fastest Ducati Non-Factory rider. On Saturday he passed in Q2 and got the 12th position thanks to the perfect feeling with his bike. In the race the Spaniard suffered some overtakes and slipped down to 15th. From there he started his comeback recovering seven positions and finishing the race 8th.
His teammate Karel Abraham started 17th and lost the contact with the group going wide for a brake problem due to the shaking of the front end. Despite this he was able to recover; He stayed focused and managed the gap with the riders behind him, still trying to catch up with the group. At the end Karel finished 17th.
The next round will take place in the Japanese Circuit of Motegi on the 21st October, the first of the three overseas races in a row.
