Silverstone beckons for Moto3™ grid

Silverstone beckons for Moto3™ grid

The Moto3™ grid heads to Silverstone this weekend for the Hertz British Grand Prix, where once again the young riders will be looking to show who is best in the hotly contested class.

The championship is currently a two horse race at the top between Red Bull KTM Ajo’s Sandro Cortese and Blusens Avintia’s Maverick Viñales. Cortese, who battled to second place last time out in Catalunya, currently has an eight point lead over Viñales, who recorded a dominant victory at his home race. While the German has been the more consistent of the two riders this season, Viñales’ winning margin in Spain will no doubt have competitors slightly worried, as he justified his ‘favourite’ tag. Last year, Silverstone was where he recorded his first ever GP pole position in the then 125cc class.

Sitting third in the championship, RW Racing GP’s Luis Salóm will look to get back onto the podium after a disappointing race in Catalunya, whilst Team Italia FMI’s Romano Fenati will also aim to rediscover he early-season form. Racing Team Germany’s Louis Rossi, who has recorded more points in the last two races than he did all of last season, continues to impress, and will be relishing the next challenge at the British track. Estrella Galicia 0,0’s current Spanish champion Alex Rins, who has had a good season so far, will look to make amends for his DNF last time out, and head further up the order.

AirAsia-SIC-Ajo’s Zulfahmi Khairuddin will once again be hunting for his first ever podium, yet will have to fend off the challenge from Bankia Aspar Team’s Alberto Moncayo and San Carlo Gresini Moto3’s Niccolò Antonelli. Estrella Galicia 0,0’s Miguel Oliveira, fresh from his first podium in Catalunya, will aim to find some consistency and finish at the front, to mount his challenge for more points this season.

The Silverstone round will also see two wildcard entries from Racing Steps Foundation KRP take to the track, in the form of two British riders John McPhee and Fraser Rogers.
