MAGIC MADNESS IN MOTEGI
The first of the three fly-aways kicks off in Motegi, Japan, as the MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3 battle for the title continues.
Marc Marquez can possibly win his seventh World Championship this weekend as he fights the likes of Andrea Dovizioso, Jorge Lorenzo and Maverick Viñales. All the Spaniard has to do is leave Motegi with at least a 75 point advantage ahead of the Bologna bullet, Dovizioso, to be crowned champion. Can Marquez become a title closer to surpassing Valentino Rossi’s prestigious record? Can “DesmoDovi” delay his biggest rivals coronation to Australia?
Meanwhile, in Moto2, Francesco Bagnaia edges ahead in the title race against Miguel Oliveira. “Pecco” currently sits 28 points above the Portuguese KTM warrior, but anything can happen in the intermediate class as the pressure increases. Will the VR46 protégé begin to place one hand on the trophy? Can Miguel Oliveira reel the Italian back in?
Down in Moto3, it’s advantage Jorge Martin as the mighty duel between the Spaniard and Italian, Marco Bezzecchi, continues. However, it’s no longer just a two man battle. Fabio Di Giannantonio is now just three points behind Bezzecchi and if his stunning Buriram form continues, he may just overtake him in this year’s standings.
