2010 Indianapolis Moto2 Race Result - Perfect Pass Wins Incident-Ridden Race

Results and summary of the Moto2 race at Indianapolis:

Toni Elias has braved illness and incident to win his 3rd race in a row in the Moto2 class, taking advantage of a restart to get away with a small group and take victory, consolidating his impressive lead in the championship.

The first attempt to start the Moto2 race had to be aborted after a double pile-up in Turn 2, which saw over 10 riders go down in separate incidents, and could not be cleared before the riders approached the location again. At the second attempt, Elias got a brilliant start, diving across the field and up the inside into the first turn. Scott Redding followed, with Julian Simon not far behind. 

Simon got past Redding on lap 3, then into the lead on lap 5, but there was nothing to choose between the front three. The Mapfre Aspar rider led, Elias in his wake and Redding latched on in 3rd, but unable to challenge. Slowly but surely, the Marc VDS rider dropped off the back of Simon and Elias, leaving the two Spaniards to settle victory between them. The race was decided on lap 12, when Elias put on a picture-perfect pass round the outside of Simon through Turn 1, leaving him perfectly lined up to hold onto the lead into Turn 2. From then on, Elias merely had to hold on to secure victory.

Elias victory helped his standings in the championship, with 2nd place man Andrea Iannone riding a brilliant race to fight his way through the pack to finish in 4th, while 3rd place rider Thomas Luthi ended the race down in 7th.
