2015 Argentina Moto3 Results & Recap

The lightweight class has always been one of the most competitive in Grand Prix racing. From the 125cc class to today’s Moto3 class that consists of Honda, KTM, Husqvarna and Mahindra machinery, it was hard to find a repeat winner.

Actually, ahead of round three of 2015 Moto3 at Argentina’s Termas de Rio Hondo, the last rider to win back-to-back lightweight-class races was the UK’s Barry Sheene in 1971.

This changed in Argentina, though, when Leopard Racing’s Danny Kent (Honda) – also a Brit – dominated the round, taking back-to-back wins with his equally dominate performance last weekend at Circuit of the Americas.

Regardless of cooling temperatures, Kent was able to take the lead on lap three, and never be challenged again. Kent would lap over a second quicker than the grid, and take the win by 10.334 seconds ahead of teammate Efren Vazquez. Taking the final podium position was Husqvarna Factory Laglisse’s Isaac Vinales.

“The race was a bit boring! I like a scrap,” joked Kent. “We were strong in Austin and carried that on. Everyone has worked so hard and it’s paying off for everyone involved.”

Though Kent didn’t scrap with anyone, the battle for second came down to the final lap. Vazquez was able to hold of Vinales for his second-straight podium.

Pole-sitter Miguel Oliveira finished fourth aboard his Red Bull KTM Ajo, ahead of teammate Brad Binder and the rookie Fabio Qaurtararo aboard the Estrella Galicia 0,0 machine.

Karel Hanika finished in sevenh, with Romano Fenati having to come from the back of the grid after an incident during Warm Up to claim eighth. The Italian rider was given three penalty points after kicking Niklas Ajo out on track, and then deliberately hitting the RBA Racing rider’s kill-switch to stall his bike, which when added to the point he carried over form last season, meant he had to start from 34th place, MotoGP reports.

Enea Bastianini and Niklas Ajo rounded out the top 19m with Francesco Bagnaia the leading Mahindra in 11th.

Kent now has 66 points, 17 ahead of teammate Vazquez as the series readies for Jerez in two weeks.
