Talmacsi reaches new milestones en route to 125cc championship lead

Talmacsi reaches new milestones en route to 125cc championship lead

125cc World Championship leader Gabor Talmacsi has firmly established himself as one of the main candidates to succeed Alvaro Bautista as the lower cylinder class champion this year.

125cc World Championship leader Gabor Talmacsi has firmly established himself as one of the main candidates to succeed Alvaro Bautista as the lower cylinder class champion this year, with two consecutive podium finishes and his first victory since 2005 allowing him to reach a number of milestones in the category.

- This was Talmacsi's first victory riding an Aprilia, his previous three wins coming when he was riding the KTM factory bike.

- Following his victory, Talmacsi is the sole leader of the World Championship classification for the first time in his career. He has previously been joint leader in the championship with Mattia Pasini in 2005.

- This is the first time in Grand Prix history that a Hungarian rider has had sole leadership of the world championship classification in any of the classes.

- The win at Jerez was Talmacsi's fourth victory, equalling the number of victories achieved by Janos Drapal, the only other Hungarian rider to have won in Grand Prix racing. Drapal scored one win in the 250cc class and three in the 350cc class during the early 1970s.

- At 25 years old, Talmacsi is the oldest rider to win a 125cc GP since Roberto Locatelli won in Germany in 2004.
