Whilst the three MotoGP World Championship classes were undertaking their qualifying sessions today, there was racing action for fans in the Czech Republic as the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup competitors took to the track for the latest round.

The youth initiative has been the scene of some exciting racing in its maiden year, and today's round was no exception with a superb victory by Frenchman Johann Zarco at Brno.

Zarco finished over seven seconds clear of his closest rival, Briton Matthew Hoyle, as he extended his lead in the series to 23 points. The duo were joined on the podium by Cyril Carrillo, who was involved in the most exciting battle of the day with Spaniard Luis Salom.

Carrillo and Salom were inseparable during the last laps of the race, with the latter stalking his fellow podium aspirant with a view to a final lap manoeuvre. However, Salom ran wide and had to take advantage of the pit lane slip road to cross the line in fourth.

The top six was completed by Cristian Trabalon and Sturla Fagerhaug.
