MotoGP Phillip Island: Moto3 set for match point| MotoGP Staff | MotoGP
After a stunning season so far, Gaviota GasGas Aspar’s Izan Guevara heads into Phillip Island with his first match point in Moto3.
With three rounds remaining, 50 is the magic number in terms of the points advantage he needs by the flag – and he’s got 49 on the way in. Still, the challenge is a real one as the number 28 rides Phillip Island for the very first time, with key rivals already counting on a little more experience.
Guevara’s closest rival is now Leopard’s Dennis Foggia as the Italian took another impressive win at Buriram. He was joined on the podium by Sterilgarda Max Racing’s Ayumu Sasaki once again – who remains fourth overall but is getting closer. Aspar teammate Sergio Garcia, meanwhile, crashed out in Thailand through no fault of his own, but had been left back in the pack after a difficult qualifying. Can he fight back at Phillip Island?
With 50 needed and 49 in hand, Phillip Island is quite the playing field for Guevara to face down his first match point. Tune in as Moto3 go racing at 11:00 local time (01:00BST) to see if the first World Champion of the season will be crowned!
