2014 Jerez Moto3 Results | Fenati Seizes Second Victory

2014 Jerez Moto3 Results

Romano Fenati made his mark in the 2014 Moto3 World Championship with his second straight win after his debut win one week ago in Argentina.

The rider for Valentino Rossi’s SKY Racing Team VR46 started from tenth on the grid—the same starting position he won from last year’s Moto3 race in Jerez—to push his way through the ranks and fend off a last corner attempt from Estrella Galicia 0,0 rider Alex Rins.

Efren Vazquez followed the Italian across the line by less than 2 tenths of a second for his best ever GP finish, with Rins trailing by mere 0.003 of a second behind Vazquez.

The race started out with another flawless launch by Red Bull KTM Ajo rider Jack Miller, who Saturday qualified on pole for the third consecutive race.

The Australian only managed to lead for the first lap, with a head group of no fewer than 11 riders challenging for the lead. Miller finally crossed the line fourth, with Isaac Viñales completing the top five after recovering from a tank slapper that nearly dismounted the Spaniard halfway through the race.

A total of seven rider did not complete the race, with Eric Granado of Calvo Team crashing out on the first lap, Niccolo Antonelli of Junior Team GO&FUN, who rejoined only to retire before the finish, Widcard rider Gabriel Rodrigoof fell mid-race, while Scott Deroue of RW Racing GP and Marc VDS Racing Team rider Livio Loi both crashed out late in the race.

Brad Binder of Ambrogio Racing and Arthur Sissis of Mahindra Racing both retired into the pits with technical problems.
