CHANG. Fabio Di Giannantonio (Del Conca Gresini Moto3) claimed his second career victory in what was an explosive Moto3™ race at the PTT Thailand Grand Prix. The Italian produced a stunning final lap to beat Lorenzo Dalla Porta (Leopard Racing) who crossed the line second as major drama unfolded at the last corner – Enea Bastianini (Leopard Racing) taking out pole sitter and Championship contender Marco Bezzecchi (Redox PruestelGP), allowing title race leader Jorge Martin (Del Conca Gresini Moto3) to extend his lead with a phenomenal P4 finish.
This left Dennis Foggia (SKY Racing Team VR46) to claim a maiden Grand Prix podium in third after hitting the front midway through the race from P25 on the grid, with Martin crossing the line in fourth to extend his lead in the Championship to 26 points. Gabriel Rodrigo (RBA BOE Skull Rider) was in the hunt throughout, eventually taking home P5, with rookie Vicente Perez (Reale Avintia Academy 77) picking up his best result of the season in sixth – a sensational performance from the young Spaniard to keep tabs with the leading group throughout.
Nicolo Bulega (SKY Racing Team VR46) claims his first top ten of the season in seventh, with Marcos Ramirez (Bester Capital Dubai) eighth, just ahead of wildcard Somkiat Chantra (AP Honda Racing Thailand) in ninth – a magnificent ride from the Thai rider. Kornfeil, who ran wide at the final corner to avoid Bezzecchi and Bastianini, crossed the line 10th.
Andrea Migno (Angel Nieto Team Moto3) was 11th, Kaito Toba (Honda Team Asia) came home 12th ahead of 13th placed Philipp Oettl (Sudmetal Schedl GP Racing), Tony Arbolino (Marinelli Snipers Team) – who led the race at one point – takes home a P14 and Adam Norrodin (Petronas Sprinta Racing) completes the point scoring positions in P15.
Jaume Masia: 17th
"Quite disappointed with the race, I expected much more but it was impossible, I tried my best. Face up and looking for Japan. Thanks to my team to fight with me".
