Indianapolis Moto3: Vazquez takes first Moto3 win

Published: 10 August 2014

Honda rider Efren Vazquez took his first ever victory in the Moto3 race at Indianapolis after a race-long battle between the leading group.

Italian rider Romano Fenati led the final lap onboard the Sky Racing Team VR46 KTM, but he was powerless as Vaquez powered past on the start/finish straight onboard the faster Honda.

Championship leader Jack Miller had to settle for third onboard the factory KTM.

Brit Danny Kent finished 12th, with fellow Brit John McPhee crashing out at turn four of the first lap, forcing Niklas Ajo and Alexis Masbou off the track.

Masbou rejoined in 30th place and rode an incredible race to cross the line in fourth place.
