It’s not just Fabio Quartararo (Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP) who could wrap up a Grand Prix World Championship title this weekend. Moto3™ rookie sensation Pedro Acosta (Red Bull KTM Ajo) has a chance of clinching the lightweight class crown at the Gran Premio Nolan del Made in Italy e dell'Emilia-Romagna, but how?
Acosta has a 30-point lead over second place Dennis Foggia (Leopard Racing) with three races to go. With the duo on five and four wins respectively, Acosta needs to score 21 points or more than Foggia if the Spaniard is to win the title at the Italian’s home race – a circuit he won at a month ago. Put simply, Acosta needs to win and hope Foggia doesn’t finisher higher than 12th.
With Sergio Garcia (Gaviota GASGAS Aspar Team) – who is 50 points shy of Acosta – unfortunately side-lined through injury, the Moto3™ title chase is now a straight fight between Acosta and Foggia.
Tune into a special Moto3™ match point Press Conference at 15:00 local time (GMT+2) to hear the thoughts of Acosta and Foggia ahead of a huge weekend at Misano.
