2014 Le Mans Moto3 Results

Spoiler Alert: 2014 Moto3 Championship results from Le Mans listed below

Under perfect conditions at the Monster Energy Grand Prix de France at Le Mans, Red Bull KTM Ajo’s Jack Miller took the Moto2 victory – his second of 2014. This allowed him to further increase his points lead.

Joining Miller on the Le Mans Moto3 podium were Alex Rins (Estrella Galicia 0,0) and Isaac Viñales (Calvo Team), respectively.

Another brilliant race saw eight riders in podium contention on the last lap with Miller holding off a challenge from pole man Efren Vazquez (SAXOPRINT RTG) in the final stages to secure his third win of the year.

Rins led by almost two seconds at one point but was eventually pulled back for second, with Viñales riding bravely to achieve his first ever Grand Prix podium result.

Francesco Bagnaia (SKY Racing Team VR46) and Alex Marquez (Estrella Galicia 0,0) were both in the top five, both within 0.5s of the podium.

Vazquez had also led the race at various points and was unhappy to finish sixth when a first ever victory looked possible.

Enea Bastianini (Junior Team Go&FUN Moto3), John McPhee (SAXOPRINT RTG), Alexis Masbou (Ongetta-Rivacold) and Jakub Kornfeil (Calvo Team) completed the top ten.

Juanfran Guevara (Mapfre Aspar Team Moto3), Karel Hanika (Red Bull KTM Ajo), Jules Danilo (Ambrogio Racing) and Niccolo Antonelli (Junior Team GO&FUN) all crashed out in the early laps, whilst there were also DNFs for Alessandro Tonucci (CIP Mahindra) and Niklas Ajo (Avant Tecno Husqvarna Ajo).

The winner of the last two rounds Romano Fenati (SKY Racing Team VR46) retired with electronics issues towards the end of the race.
