19 October 2008 08:16
British rider Bradley Smith finished second in he Malaysian 125 GP, putting him on the podium behind Gabor Talmacsi.
World Champion Talmacsi claimed victory at the Malaysian circuit for the second year running. The Bancaja Aspar rider got a good start from second spot on the grid and broke away from the rest of the pack early.
Other riders tried to catch the Hungarian, but nobody was able to match his pace.
Bradley Smith started in 13th but diced his way up through the field to finally take second place and his fourth podium of the season.
Bradley's compatriots Danny Webb and Scott Redding didn't fair so well in Malaysia. Webb retired from the race because a penalty left him no chance of earning any points, while Scott Redding retired due to an injurt he sustained earlier this weekend.
Italian Simone Corsi claimed third for the Jack & Jones WRB Aprilia team, with German Sandro Cortese taking fourth place.
