Kent’s first shot at the title

Kent’s first shot at the title

At the Motul Grand Prix of Japan Leopard Racing’s Danny Kent has his first chance to lift the Moto3™ title if results go his way.

Although he failed to score any points in the race at Aragon, Danny Kent arrives in Japan with a 55-point lead and has a chance at Motegi to become the first British rider to take a grand prix world championship since Barry Sheene won the 500cc title in 1977. The following scenarios will result in Kent taking the world championship in Motegi:

  • If Kent wins the race and Bastianini finishes no higher than 11th

  • If Kent finishes second and Bastianini fails to score any points
