The triangular fight resumes at Phillip Island

Red Bull KTM Ajo’s Luis Salom is the man to catch once again as the Moto3™ contingent heads south to contest the Tissot Australian Grand Prix at Phillip Island, with the Mallorcan having extended his lead at the top of the championship with a hard-fought win last time out in Malaysia.

Salom now holds a 14-point lead from nearest rival Alex Rins (Estrella Galicia 0,0), whom he narrowly beat at Sepang. Yet Rins is right on his rival’s heels and looking to claw back points to improve his championship aspirations. One rider looking for an increase in performance is Team Calvo’s Maverick Viñales, who struggled somewhat in the Malaysian heat despite not being far off the leading pace. 26 points separate the season-long adversaries with three events remaining.

Caretta Technology – RTG’s Jack Miller and Red Bull KTM Ajo’s Arthur Sissis will be doing their upmost to impress the home crowd at ‘The Island’, with the latter having celebrated a podium finish last year. However, this year it is Miller who is the man on form and will no doubt be aiming to stop the Spanish dominance. The usual field will be joined by two local wildcards in the form of Callum Barker (Barker - McVey Racing) and Lachlan Kevney (Bullet Racing team).
