Who will be a first time Moto3™ winner in Germany?

Who will be a first time Moto3™ winner in Germany?

All of the crucial names and numbers you need to impress your friends before the GoPro Motorrad Grand Prix Deutschland.

A spattering of facts about the Moto3™ field as they head to Germany:

  • None of the riders currently competing in the Moto3™ class have won a grand prix race at the Sachsenring circuit.

  • KTM have won each of the three Moto3™ races that have taken place at the Sachsenring circuit. Honda have not won a lightweight-class grand prix in Germany since Marco Melandri won the 125cc GP at the Sachsenring in 1999.

  • Danny Kent finished 5th in Germany last year, which is his best result from the four grand prix starts he has made at the Sachsenring circuit. 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.

  • Following Isaac Viñales’ crash at the Dutch TT, the only two riders who have scored in all eight Moto3™ races so far in 2015 are championship leader Danny Kent and second in the table, Enea Bastianini.

  • Enea Bastianini has started from pole at the last two races - the first Italian rider to have back-to-back poles in the lightweight-class of grand prix racing since Simone Corsi in 2008. Bastianini’s pole at Assen also gave him the record as the youngest ever Italian rider to start from pole at successive races. Bastianini crashed at the final corner of the first lap last year in Germany, re-started in 31st position before fighting his way through the field to finish 15th.

  • Miguel Oliveira, who has won two of the last three Moto3™ races, finished fourth at the Sachsenring two years ago – his only point scoring finish at the circuit.

  • Brad Binder finished second last year in the Moto3™ race in Germany, which is his best result in grand prix racing.

  • Two of Alexis Masbou’s four podium finishes in grand prix racing have been at the Sachsenring; second in 2012 and third last year.
