The long-awaited GP in Thailand has come, and it couldn’t be more exciting!

We enjoyed a weekend full of emotions in all three classes, where the battles were tightened at all times, starting from free practice to Sunday races.

In Moto3 qualifications were dominated by the Italian Bezzecchi, but we want to highlight the great performance of Kazuki Masaki, team RBA BOE Skull Rider, the Japanese rookie of our Sakartfamily, who closed third grabbing the first row for the first time in Moto3 at his 15th GP. Excellent performance in qualification also for Brad Binder’s little brother, Darryn, author of a good lap that led him to take the 6th box on the grid. Then the race unfortunately didn’t go as they would have liked: Darryn felt in the early laps, same fate for Kazuki at the end of the GP. Both will definitely be back in the next GP in Japan.

Great struggle from the beginning in Moto2, with the qualifications dominated by Baldassarri followed by an excellent Alex Marquez (Team EG 0.0 Marc VDS) at 26 cents. 171 thousandths divide our Brad Binder from the pole, relegating him to 7th place, just behind the leader of the world championship, Bagnaia. The race was not far behind, with the fight for the victory that has seen from the beginning to the end, Bagnaia, Oliveira, Binder and then Luca Marini as protagonists. Victory in extremis for the rider from Turin and leadership in the general classification reconquered. Excellent, for intensity and determination, the race of the South African rider, fourth on the finish line, who fought until the end for the victory, then missed just for 1.8 seconds.

The MotoGP has seen yet another ruthless victory of a Marquez now really a step away from his seventh world. Behind him a fighting Dovizioso, the only one that gave Marquez a hard time, and surrendered only at the last corner of the last lap. The podium is completed with Maverick Vinales, first Yamaha on the finish line. Chiaroscuro for the two Suzuki of the Ecstar team, with Iannone starting from sixth and Rins eleventh. Positions reversed at the checkered flag with Rins sixth and Iannone eleventh, and Rins author of a great comeback, one step away from the Yamaha duo, Rossi and Zarco.

Thus ended this first GP in Thailand, full of strong emotions for all fans and especially for the young Thai public, thanks to races fought until the last corner.

Appointment in two weeks for the second Asian GP in Motegi, Japan. A track where the Suzuki in MotoGP have always behaved well, like the podium of Vinales in 2016 and the fourth and fifth place of Iannone and Rins last year. It will be the home GP for Kazuki Masaki in Moto3 and Brad Binder will be on the eve of his 125th GP in his career, which will be celebrating in Sepang.

Stay tuned!
