Danny dominates at the Sachsenring
21 year young Danny Kent extended his championship lead with an untouchable race win in today’s German Grand Prix at the Sachsenring circuit ahead of team mate Efren Vazquez.
Danny, who started from pole position and moved away after five laps to open a gap over his team mate Efren Vazquez up to seven seconds, won for the fifth time this year in front of a massive crowded Sachsenring circuit.
In the fine weather conditions he displayed once again a talented ride, won round nine to head into the summer break with a 66 points lead in the world standings. In every single session the Honda rider was the man to beat this weekend, so he demonstrated again his high ambitions to win this year’s Moto3™ World Championship.
The Moto3™ World Championship now heads into a three weeks summer break before the paddock goes west for the Indianapolis Grand Prix mid of August.
#52 Danny KENT – Winner, World Championship position 1st (190 points):
“I’m so happy about this win because this track is a really demanding one. Through all this corners and of course the long distance with 27 laps it isn’t easy to stay focussed, especially when riding alone at the front. But in the end I managed it well so thanks to that I was able to extend our championship lead further. After we were so strong during all practice sessions as well in qualifying practice the race started not that great as it was to expect. I didn’t make a great start when I dropped down some positions and I struggled a bit with the tyres and I had one moment with a big slide in turn twelfth. Anyway, from that point the tyres got better so everything went according to our plans. Due to our strong pace in practice sessions and qualifying we knew that we can do a good race today. I’m very happy how things went through the first part of the season to be able to perform consistently that strong, so now I look forward to some relaxed weeks with a fine championship lead. A huge thanks to my team and all stuff, great job done every time.”
