 In Moto2, News


Marc VDS Racing Team rider Tito Rabat came within 0.133s of ending a fantastic 2014 Moto2 World Championship on the top step of the podium at the Ricardo Tormo track in Valencia today.

The new Moto2 World Champion kept ice cool under race long pressure from Thomas Luthi to lead on the run to the finish line.

But just metres away from celebrating what would have been a richly deserved eighth win of the season, Rabat experienced a minor fuelling issue and had to settle for second position.

Rabat’s 14tth rostrum from an 11th pole position helped the Spaniard reach an impressive tally of 346 points, which set a new record in the intermediate category.

Tito Rabat // 2nd
“It is a pity that I could not end the season with a victory because I think we deserved it. It was a hard battle with Luthi and I couldn’t relax for one second because he was pushing really hard. Conditions for the race were cooler and I was sliding more and that consumed more fuel. Coming out of the last corner I had a small issue and unfortunately it meant Luthi could take the win. I am sorry for my fans but it has still been an unforgettable season and I am pleased that I could set a new points record.”
