Moto3™ race guide for the British GP

Moto3™ race guide for the British GP

Get all of the information you need in one place ahead of the Moto3™ race at the Octo British Grand Prix.

The 17-lap Moto3™ race at Silverstone kicks off at 14:30 local time:

  • Jorge Navarro starts from pole for the first time in his grand prix career in what is just his 24th GP start. Navarro is the seventh different rider to start from pole this season in the Moto3 class, and this is the first pole for a Spanish rider since Alex Marquez at Phillip Island last year.

  • Karel Hanika is in second place on the grid, his best ever qualifying result in grand prix racing, although he did start from second place on the grid in Germany when Enea Bastianini was given a grid penalty.  Hanika will be targeting a first podium for a Czech rider since Lukas Pesek won the 125cc race at Phillip Island in 2007.

  • Danny Kent takes the final place on the front row and will be aiming to become the first British rider to win a lightweight-class grand prix at Silverstone.

  • Efren Vazquez heads the second row – his best grid position since he was fourth fastest qualifier in Argentina.

  • Sixth fastest qualifier Alexis Masbou has not had a top seven finish since he won the opening race of 2015 in Qatar.

  • In seventh place on the grid is Enea Bastianini, third placed finisher last year at Silverstone. Bastianini has already had eight podium finishes in his short grand prix career, but has yet to stand on the top step.
