Tito Rabat and Alex Rins Take It To The Wire In Spain

Posted:

Tito Rabat (Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS Kalex) won a thrilling final-lap Moto2 showdown with Alex Rins (Paginas Amarillas HP 40 Kalex) to hold onto his World Championship crown for another few weeks overnight in Spain as the Moto2 World Championship headed to Aragon.

Current series leader Johann Zarco (Ajo Motorsport Kalex) had the chance of taking the title from Rabat today if he finished well ahead of the Spaniard, but instead he could do no better than sixth, which takes him to the next race in Japan with a 78 point advantage.

Rins and Rabat were together throughout the shortened race ‰ÛÒ reduced to 14 laps after a double crash following the first start ‰ÛÒ and they built up to a brilliant last lap in which Rins briefly got ahead, only for Rabat to immediately retake the advantage.

The result was in doubt until the very last corner, Rabat crossing the finish line just 0.096 seconds ahead.

‰ÛÏOn the last lap I knew that Alex was going to be fast at the end of the race because he had used a new soft tyre for the second start and we had to use the same tyre as the first start." Rabat reflected.

"I am so happy to win here at home so I want to say a big thank you to my team. We have still got four races to go until the end of the year, so I want to enjoy those races and, hopefully, add some more wins.‰Û
