Sachsenring to host another 125 thriller

Sachsenring to host another 125 thriller

The 125cc World Championship could not be closer with just eight points separating the first four riders. Joint series leaders Mattia Pasini and Gabor Talmacsi both left Donington Park empty-handed after the Italian crashed on the warm-up lap for the second race and the Hungarian slid out twice once the red lights were out.

Thomas Luthi now lies just one point behind the pair with Mika Kallio a further seven points back. Meanwhile Julian Simon, the only rider in the 125cc class to have scored points at each of the first eight races of the year, now lies eighth in the championship after becoming the sixth different winner of a 125cc race this season with his maiden success at Donington.

The last four editions of the 125 German Grand Prix were won by Aprilia riders. Honda have had two victories in the 125cc class at the new Sachsenring circuit, Derbi have had one win with Youichi Ui in 2000.
