2013 Barcelona Moto3 Race Results: Victory Taken In Tight Tussle

Summary and results of Moto3 race:

Luis Salom has taken a well earned victory at his home grand prix, the Red Bull KTM Ajo rider finished ahead of countrymen Alex Rins and Maverick Vinales in a tight three way battle. Alex Marquez, Efren Vazquez, Miguel Oliveira and Jack Miller completed the top seven but all finished with fairly lonely, spread out rides.
 
The battle for eighth was a chaotic affair that involved around ten riders. Alexis Masbou, 'Fami' Khairuddin and Arthur Sissis came out on top and rounded out the top ten positions.
 
Efren Vazquez joined the leading group briefly with Marquez to make it a battle of five at the front. With five laps to go however Luis Salom made his move, charging into the lead and dragging Rins and Vinales along with him and the trio diced furiously until the checkered flag. 

There was disappointment for Jasper Iwema, Toni Finsterbusch & Niklas Ajo who all crashed out early on.

Race of the day. Now if Honda can find a little Mahindra in a straight line, Binder,Miller,Fenati and Webb may find a way to help#25 spit his dummy big time.
Nice one Louis Salom.
