It was a double celebration for the Marc VDS Racing squad in Le Mans today in front of proud team owner Marc van der Straten.

Spanish rider Tito Rabat secured his fourth podium of the season after winning an exciting battle for third against Maverick Viñales and Luis Salom, whilst teammate Mika Kallio strengthened his Moto2 World Championship challenge with a fantastic victory, handing the Marc VDS Racing Team a fourth win in five races to continue a dominant 2014 campaign.

A second double podium of 2014 for the Marc VDS Racing squad sees Rabat and Kallio split by just seven-points in the Championship chase heading to the next round in Mugello.

“The weekend went really well until the race. From FP1 I had a good rhythm and the team did a great job. In the race I didn’t make a good start and many riders passed me. I tried to push but it wasn’t possible to go, even with my usual smooth style. At the end I tried to overtake Corsi, but I made a mistake at Turn Four and went wide and that denied me second. I’m happy because this is the first time I’ve finished at Le Mans for many years but we have some work to do because Mika has had two really good races and he is looking very strong.”
