2013 Silverstone Moto3 Race Result: Breathless British Battle

Full Report and Results Below:

Luis Salom has taken his sixth victory of the season and extended his championship lead after a frantic four-way contest at Silverstone. Salom took the lead of the race from pole-man Maverick Vinales at the halfway point of the race. Salom's move also dragged Vinales back into the clutches of Estrella Galicia riders Alex Rins and Alex Marquez. 

From there an uncountable number of breathtaking passes were made between all four riders and it was Salom who came out on top. He crossed the line a mere four hundredths ahead of Rins, while Marquez got the better of a highly disappointed Maverick Vinales on the last lap. Vinales finished outside the podium positions for the first time this season and will be all the more upset with being unable to capitalise on his weekend-long dominance. 

Another battle of four was fought and won by Miguel Oliveira for fifth position, the Portuguese rider finished ahead of a lively group including Jonas Folger, Jack Miller and Alexis Masbou in eighth position. Jakub Kornfeil and Efren Vazquez completed the top ten.
