2013 Jerez Moto2 Race Result: A Handful Of Firsts

Race Results and summary for Moto2:

 

Esteve Rabat won his first-ever Grand Prix in emphatic fashion Sunday in Jerez grabbing the lead early and relentlessly expanding it to the finish. The win, following Rabat's first-ever pole position, also put the Spaniard in the Moto2 championship lead for the first time. Headed into the next race in Le Mans, Rabat has a one-point advantage over Scott Redding, the second-place finisher Sunday. Local favorite Pol Espargaro finished third following a thrilling, race-long battle with eventual fourth-place finisher Takaaki Nakagami. Nicolas Terol, winner at the COTA track in Texas two weeks ago, finished a lonely fifth.

Rabat's clear dominance was the story of the day, however. By the lap three, he had opened .7 sec gap on second-place Redding. By lap 10 of the 26-lap contest, he expanded his lead to 2.5 seconds as track conditions became increasingly slick. It the end, Rabat finished the race 4.2 seconds in front of the British rider who is still seeking his first Moto2 win.
