What is Danny Kent’s best result at the Dutch GP?

What is Danny Kent’s best result at the Dutch GP?

All of the vital Moto3™ trivia and information you need to know ahead of the Motul TT Assen.

Here are some interesting facts about the Moto3™ race at the TT Circuit Assen:

  • Danny Kent has had a single podium finish at Assen; third in the Moto3™ race in 2012, his first ever podium finish in grand prix racing. Since taking the lead in the championship standings with a win in Austin, Kent has increased his lead in the championship at each of the subsequent races.

  • None of the riders currently competing in Moto3™ have ever won at the Dutch TT.

  • Enea Bastianini has been on the podium six times already in his short Moto3™ career, including five second place finishes, but has yet to stand on the top step.  Bastianini crashed out of the Moto3™ race at Assen last year at the chicane at the end of the first lap.

  • In 2013, Miguel Oliveira achieved pole position at Assen for Mahindra Racing: their first and so far only pole in Moto3™ (in addition to Danny Webb’s 125cc pole for Mahindra at Valencia in 2011). Oliveira finished third last year at the Dutch TT – his only podium finish of 2014.

  • Niccolo Antonelli finished fifth last year at the Dutch TT – his best result of 2014.  His fourth place finish two weeks ago in Catalunya equalled his best ever GP results that he had at both Le Mans and Mugello in 2012.

  • At the Dutch TT last year Romano Fenati ran wide into the gravel trap at the chicane on the first lap, dropping him back to 31st place.  He set a new lap record while working his way back up to eighth before crashing on the 14th lap, then re-starting to eventually finish 18th.
