2015 Silverstone Moto3 Race Result: Cool Head Prevails In A War Of Attrition

Result and summary of the Moto3 race at Silverstone:

Danny Kent has written another chapter in the history books, by becoming the first ever British winner of a lightweight class at Silverstone, and taking back control of the Moto3 championship in the process.

Kent got away with Isaac Viñales at the start, quickly breaking the field and opening a gap. Viñales looked to have a comfortable lead, but crashed out on lap 4, handing Kent the lead with a big gap over the field. From that point on, Kent only had to manage the race, slowly pulling away to take a very comfortable win.

Behind Kent, a war of attrition raged, with riders falling while chasing the championship leader. Jakub Kornfeil held on to a comfortable second, easily ahead of the battle for the final podium spot, from which Niccolo Antonelli emerged triumphant, after Pecco Bagnaia crashed with a couple of laps to go. Kent's championship received a big boost when his main rival, Enea Bastianini, crashed on the penultimate lap while fighting for fifth position. Kent now holds a generous 70 point lead over Bastianini, with six races left to go.
