Marc Marquez

MotoGP

Marc Marquez is on a tear through the MotoGP world. The young Spanish sensation has already stamped his name in the history books in his rookie MotoGP premier class campaign, becoming the youngest ever MotoGP pole sitter, youngest winner of the Grand Prix of the Americas and the youngest ever world champion. Arriving onto the international scene with a pair of World Championship titles under his belt (125cc in 2010 and Moto2 in 2011), Marquez was an established presence before his blistering rookie and sophomore campaigns had even begun.

    Andrea Dovizioso closed the MotoGP stay at Donington Park with his first ever premier class victory. The Oakley rider made sense of the madness that ensued with steady rainfall to earn 25 points and the honour of being the last premier class winner at the Midlands circuit.

Toni Elías had a successful salvage operation placing sixth, he was particularly impressive, having started from last place. The only retirees from the race were Oakley’s Randy de Puniet who crashed on the opening lap and Andrea Dovizioso. Andrea fell victim to excessive front tire wear and was forced to call it a day before the end of the Grand Prix.
