Tito Rabat snatches victory from Kallio in epic Silverstone Moto2 race

 In Moto2, News


Tito Rabat got the better of a titanic battle with his Marc VDS teammate, Mika Kallio, to take his sixth victory of the season in the British Moto2 Grand Prix today.

It is the third time in 2014 that the Marc VDS duo has occupied the top two steps of the podium and today’s victory means that Rabat has now won half of the 12 races run so far, giving him a 17 point lead over Kallio at the top of the Championship standings.

After struggling with both the conditions and set up at Silverstone all weekend, it was a welcome win for Rabat, who was visibly relieved as he pulled up to occupy the number one slot in parc ferme post race.

Tito Rabat // Race Winner
“The start was normal; the first laps were neither good nor bad, but once the fuel load started to reduce then I was able to push more and more. It put me into a good fight with Folger, Vinales, Zarco and, eventually, Mika who I managed to get the better of on the last lap. I’m happy because here I wasn’t the fastest on track, because the other riders had better settings than us today. The team and me put in everything, we took all the risk and it paid off. It makes today’s win even more special.”
