2014 Jerez Moto2 News

Marc VDS Racing Team rider Tito Rabat will be looking for a third win to increase his already monumental lead in the Moto2 category – 70 out of a possible 75 points thus far in the season – but says he has his teammate to be wary of. His teammate, Mika Kallio, is second in points, 28 behind.

In Argentina, the Spanish rider Rabat claimed his second pole position and third race win of 2014 after a commanding Moto2 performance at the new Termas de Rio Hondo track.

Follow the South American race, the 24-year-old rider said: “From the outside, it might have looked like an easy race, but on the bike it was incredibly difficult. It’s not easy to hold maximum concentration and I knew that if I made a small mistake, (Xavier) Simeon was ready to attack. I am really happy because I made a good start and led the whole race. I have to say a big thanks to my team because they gave me a fantastic bike and the tire choice was perfect.”

As the world championship hits European soil for the first time in the season, Rabat is not content to relax his efforts while on home turf.

“We are heading to Jerez with a nice lead in the championship, but I can’t relax because Mika (Kallio) is now second and he’ll be pushing hard – as always.”
