2013 Indianapolis Moto2 Race Result: A Late Charge In Front Of The War

Results below

Esteve Rabat tooks his second Moto2 win of the season with a stunning late charge to haul in and pass second-place finisher Takaaki Nakagami. Rabat's win at Indianpolis is a return to the front group after a series of tough races for the Spaniard. Nakagami's second also marks a return to form for the Japaese rider who started the Moto season strong but has faded in recent races.

However the battle of the race -- Rabat's charge notwithstanding -- was that between third-place finisher Scott Redding and championship rival Pol Espargaro who came in fourth. The pair swapped positions and paint late in the race with Redding barging past Espargaro for good during the race's final laps.  Redding extended his championship lead to better than a full-race win and now sits 26 points ahead of Espargaro. Dominique Aegerter rounded out the top five.

Scott say's he had tyre troublle again, which began several laps in..
Still didn't stop a thrilling backwards and forwards tussle with Pol.
A great race to watch over all..
