ARGENTINA. Marco Bezzecchi (Redox PrustelGP) takes his maiden Moto3™ victory with a magnificent ride on a drying track at the Gran Premio Motul de la Republica Argentina, pushing from the start and able to pull away for a 6.8 second lead after ten laps. Aron Canet (Estrella Galicia 0,0) battled hard to take a valuable 20 points and the lead in the Championship as he took second, as Del Conca Gresini Moto3™ rider Fabio Di Giannantonio finished 0.274 back in third. Enea Bastianini (Leopard Racing) threatened late in the race to take his first podium of the season, but a mistake on the last lap ended his chances – he finished a solid fourth. A gap of 3.294 then separated the Italian to Adam Norrodin (Petronal Sprinta Racing) who claimed his career best finish in fifth, with sixth place Estrella Galicia 0,0 man Alonso Lopez also grabbing his career best result. Lopez led Lorenzo Dalla Porta (Leopard Racing) in seventh and Niccolo Antonelli (SIC58 Squadra Corse) in eighth. Home hero Gabriel Rodrigo (RBA BOE Skull Rider) managed to get a top ten finish at his home grand prix, after dropping back from the leading group late in the race but taking ninth.

"I am very upset for the crash. It has been a pity. I was enjoying a lot the race, having so much fun, feeling very comfortable on the bike despite the hard conditions of the track. It is time to learn and look ahead for Austin."
