Piqueras and Buasri share the wins in Austria

The Spanish and Thai stars emerge victorious at the Red Bull Ring

RACE 1: Angel Piqueras takes last corner victory

From pole position to Race 1 win, Angel Piqueras got the points but the 15-year-old Spaniard had to fight for every centimetre and was swallowed up several times by the pack of more that 10 KTMs that were often four abreast into every Spielberg turn.

The race was decided on the run into the line when Tatchakorn Buasri, the 21-year-old Thai ran wide and Piqueras stole the drive. Points leader José Rueda flashed across the line third but Buasri had exceeded track limits at that final corner and was thus demoted a place behind the 16-year-old Spaniard.

Fourth went to Collin Veijer, the 17-year-old Dutchman, who had taken the lead with 4 laps to go and did everything he could to hold the advantage to the flag, only being passed in the final laps.

Unfortunately, there was an accident involving two riders. One of them, Amaury Mizera, was taken to hospital in Graz and we wish him a full recovery. Soma Görbe was treated on-site.

RACE 2: Buasri bets on black to win Rookies 2 in Spielberg as Quiles loses on green

Tatchakorn Buasri rode another brilliant Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup race at Spielberg and this time the 21-year-old Thai took victory as Màx Quiles, the 14-year-old Spaniard clipped the green with the wheels of his KTM on the exit to the last corner and was dropped a place.

Buasri had lost 2nd the same way on Saturday. Yesterday's winner, 15-year-old Angel Piqueras crossed the line 3rd having narrowly got the better of fellow Spaniard and points leader 16-year-old José Rueda.

Collin Veijer, the 17-year-old Dutchman and arch rival in the points chase to Rueda took 5th after a late race battle with Marcos Ruda the 17-year-old Spaniard.
