Quick guide to the #ArgentinaGP Moto3™ race

Quick guide to the #ArgentinaGP Moto3™ race

Check out these useful facts and figures ahead of the Moto3™ race at the Gran Premio Red Bull de la Republica Argentina.

The Moto3™ race at the Termas de Rio Hondo consists of 21 laps around the 4.8 km circuit, and is due to start at 13:00 local time:

•    Miguel Oliveira has qualified on pole for the second time in his GP career; his other pole was at the Dutch TT in 2013 riding a Mahindra. Oliveira has had four career podium finishes but is still aiming to become the first Portuguese rider to win a grand prix. He did not get off the line last year in Argentina, after suffering clutch problems as he lined-up on the starting grid.

•    Danny Kent, the winner in Austin, starts from second place on the grid and could become the first British rider to win back-to-back races in the lightweight-class of grand prix racing since Barry Sheene won in Sweden and then a week later in Finland in 1971.

•    Taking the final place on the front row is Nico Antonelli, who will be aiming to take his first grand prix podium finish.

•    Heading the second row is Efren Vazquez, who finished third one week ago in Austin after qualifying down in 16th place on the grid.

•    Isaac Viñales, who finished 7th last year in Argentina, is the top Husqvarna rider in qualifying, in fifth place on the grid.

•    Romano Fenati, the winner of the Moto3 race in Argentina last year, has qualified in eighth place on the grid – his best qualifying position so far this year.
