Here we come to the last Grand Prix of the season, with the lower classes already with their winners and the MotoGp still playing!

Moto3

Looking at the starting grid and the final standings it may seem that almost nothing happened. On the contrary we have witnessed the confirmation that the new World Champion Joan Mir is a rising star of the World Championship of the coming years.

The story tells about a very quick start of Martin (Del Conca Gresini Moto3) from the pole, which runs off and nobody could catch him. Behind the roar of the usual bagarre with Mir, Rodrigo, Bastianini and Ramirez making fight.

On lap 2 Rodrigo, second, falls and forces Mir, right behind, to widen the corner ending in the dirt. Result: Rodrigo out and Mir in 19th place. From here begins the fantastic return of Leopard Racing’s Mallorcan rider who reaches the 2nd place in fifteen laps. Thrilling last lap, with Mir defending from Ramirez who will finish third for an all Spanish podium.

From next year we will see Mir in Moto2 with the team Marc VDS EG 0,0, and we are sure we will enjoy it!

Moto2

Moto2 experienced a seasonal final, where the protagonist was the rider of the Red Bull KTM team, Miguel Oliveira, at his third consecutive victory.

We attended a race in three acts: the first one marked by the battle for the first position between teammates Morbidelli and Alex Marquez (Marc VDS EG 0,0), then won by the Italian-Brazilian rider; a central part where the Red Bull riders Oliveira and Binder reach and surpass Marquez and settle in second and third positions; and the final part in which the Portuguese rider approaches Morbidelli, up to that point firmly in his head, overtaking him and almost immediately emptying.

Another great performance for the rookie Brad Binder, who wore a preview of our 2018 design helmet that he’ll wear next season. Starting from the fifth box, he immediately begins to battle following closely Oliveira and Marquez. At the ninth round Marquez approaches and with a clever overtaking he sets in front of him, increasing the detachment and closing the race on the bottom of the podium.

We are confident that this magnificent Brad’s final season is the prelude to a great 2018 and that next season he will be one of the protagonists for the title fight.

MotoGP

It was the most eagerly-awaited race of the weekend, to determine the MotoGp world champion, and finally it’s Marc Marquez.

The Spanish is in pole and the first row had high explosive potential, with Zarco second and Iannone third. From the beginning Marquez undergoes the attacks of a runaway Zarco, who ultimately passes it and lead the race.

Marquez seems to be content with second place, as Dovizioso, not brilliant at the start, is fifth behind his teammate Lorenzo. Moments of suspense in HRC boxes when Marquez, trying not to be overtaken by Zarco, is likely to fall and resume the race just behind Dovizioso.

But this moment doesn’t last long because Lorenzo first and then Dovizioso both fall, ending the race and the championship, after a race conducted at the limit.

At this point Marquez, third, just needs to end the race while Zarco and Pedrosa face battle for victory. Everything was resolved in the last lap when Pedrosa with a decisive attack, overcomes Zarco and wins the last GP of the season.

Season 2017 therefore found its winner in Marc Marquez, World Champion for the sixth time.

Another good performance for the Team Suzuki Ecstar, which ends the race with the fourth place from a perfect Rins and the sixth of Iannone. We are sure that next season Team Suzuki Ecstar will be the protagonist and this season finale does prove it, Team Suzuki Ecstar is ready to do battle.

In the next days there will be in Valencia the first tests for 2018 Championship, starting on March 2018 in Qatar, ready for another exciting season … stay tuned!
