Spaniards complete memorable triple

Spaniards complete memorable triple

Donington Park was taken over by Spanish riders last weekend, as Dani Pedrosa, Jorge Lorenzo and Alvaro Bautista all took victory from pole position at the British track.

A Spanish triple from 125cc, 250cc and MotoGP has only one precedent, which occurred back in 2003 at Le Mans. Once again Pedrosa was one of the riders involved, although this time in 125cc, with Toni Elias taking quarter litre victory and Sete Gibernau going home with the premier class win.

For similar performances in the World Championship, one has to go all the way back to 1988 when, on three occasions in the season, Spain dominated the day of racing. At the Assen TT, Joan Garriga took the 250cc win whilst Jorge Martinez Aspar was victorious in 125cc and 80cc. At the end of the season the feat was repeated in Brno, whilst in Yugoslavia Sito Pons added to another Aspar double for another day of Spanish dominance.
