Moto2: Rabat takes Indianapolis win as Redding extends lead

Spaniard Esteve Rabat (Kalex Tuenti HP 40) has won the Moto2 race in Indinapolis to clinch is second victory of the season after the one he earned in Jerez earlier this year.
Rabat was the first to cross the famous Brickyard ahead of championship leader Scott Redding (Marc VDS Racing Team) and Japan’s Takaaki Nakagami (Kalex Italtrans Racing Team), who led the race for most laps before getting overtaken by Rabat whene there were just two laps to go (it would have been the first victory of his career).

Pole-sitter Redding was quick to take the lead into the first corner but was soon passed by a very inspired Nakagami.
Title contenders Redding and Espargaro carried on with their neverending duel, but behind them Rabat was quickly reducing the gap.

On lap 19 he passed Redding, and two laps later it was teammate Espargaro’s turn.
The move for the lead came at Turn 1 on lap 25, denying Nakagami his career-first victory.
Redding and Espargaro kept on fighting for the third spot on the podium until the Spaniard ran wide at the second corner and found himself battling with Technomag carXpert’s Dominique Aegerter to defend the fourth place.

Italy’s Simone Corsi (NGM Mobile Racing) won the final sprint for the sixth place ahead of Mika Kallio (Marc VDS Racing Team), Johann Zarco (Came Iodaracing Project), Xavier Simeon (Maptaq SAG Zelos Team) and Sachsenring race winner Jordi Torres (Aspar Team Moto2).
Redding’s championship lead over Espargaro has been stretched out to 26 points.
