Honda’s Efren Vazquez

2014 Indy Moto3 Results

The Australian Jack Miller led the Moto3 series for Red Bull KTM with 142 points going into this weekend’s Red Bull Indianapolis event, followed 19-points back by Marc Marquez’s younger brother, Alex Marquez, who rides for the Estrella Galicia 0,0 Honda team.

Miller’s third place finish at Indy Moto3 did no damage to his chances for the title, but it was Efren Vazquez (SAXOPRINT RTG) who topped the podium to claim his first victory in 116 Grand Prix starts.

The victory moves Vazquez past Marquez into second place behind Miller. Miller has 158 points after his third place finish with Vazquez at 137 points and Marquez with 133 points after his sixth place finish.

The lead was hotly contested throughout the event and a number of crashes affected the 23 lap event. John McPhee (SAXOPRINT RTG) crashed out at Turn 4 on lap one, pushing Niklas Ajo (Avant Tecno Husqvarna Ajo) and Alexis Masbou (Ongetta-Rivacold) off. Masbou remounted, rejoined the race in 30th position and finished a remarkable fourth, but Ajo crashed out later.
