WE BRING YOU THE RESULTS OF THE RED BULL MOTOGP ROOKIES CUP ROUND 4 @ ASSEN, NETHERLAND
We bring you results of the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup Rd. 4 at Assen – the first of two races this weekend.
Soushi Mihara scored his second Rookies Cup victory with a masterful display of wet weather riding to take Race 1 at the Dutch TT at Assen. After what was a thrilling and incident strewn race the 14-year-old Japanese finally had an almost ten second advantage over Cup points leader Jorge Martín, the 16-year-old Spaniard, at the flag with 17-year-old Briton Brad Ray further back in third.
Mihara was not one of the pre race favourites, coming off the third row of the grid after qualifying seventh, but he was soon in the frame as he picked off riders at every corner on lap one to chase Stefano Manzi across the line at the end of the first of fourteen laps. When the 15-year-old Italian crashed out exiting the Strubben early in lap two Mihara had the lead.
