All that Catalunya pre race hype really lived up to expectations! I really thought Bastianini might have gotten him but Kent was clearly in control. Earlier in the race it looked as if Kent might sprint into the distance dropping a few really fast laps and opening a visual gap. In true Moto3 fashion that didn't last too long. Vazquez, Antonelli and Oliveira were pushing hard.
Kent dropped back into the pack to 7th place and raised a few commentators eye brows. The long Catalunya grid straight was providing some wind cover to the train and evened out the field. Leading out of the last corner going into the last lap was definitely not a good strategy and clearly Kent agreed. Picking up a massive 6 bike slip stream, Kent was sling shot around the outside to claim back second and then first from Antonelli to run over the line.
What a killer blow that was. Special mention to Efren Vazquez for the insanely bold pass up the inside of Antonelli on the last corner!
The Motul TT Assen is up next, can Kent continue his reign?
