Into the lion's den: who will rule Britannia


And now for something completely different: as the dust settles on the Spielberg duel, it’s already time to gear up for Silverstone and the British GP – home to some of its own classics. It’s 40 years since the first British GP on the mainland, also held at the track, making even more of an occasion out of a race weekend that never disappoints – and Valentino Rossi (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) is on the cusp of setting a new record, becoming the first rider in history to have 300 premier class starts.

Once an airfield and now a racetrack, Silverstone is a long circuit characterised by its speed and sheer expanse. 5.9km of tarmac houses 18 corners, with Copse Corner Turn 1 for MotoGP™. And, as well as the challenge of the track, there is often the challenge of the British weather to contend with.

Championship leader Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) shows up at Silverstone with a 16 point advantage over his nearest rival – extending that lead even in defeat in Austria, as Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team) moved up to second and Maverick Viñales (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) down to third. Marquez, a winner at the track in MotoGP™ in 2014, has some serious pace at the venue to stake a claim on increasing his points gap once again. Added to a growing reputation as the master of flag-to-flag races should the weather roll in, the number 93 won’t arrive prepared to settle.

Dorna and ADAC agree on joint promotion of junior


Regulations of the NEC Moto3™ and the ETC to be brought in line, with reduced costs for participants and similar opportunities to progress

During the MotoGP™ event at the Red Bull Ring, ADAC Sports President Hermann Tomczyk and Dorna CEO Carmelo Ezpeleta agreed on even closer joint promotion of juniors. The European Talent Cup, organised by Dorna, and the Standard class of the ADAC Northern Europe Cup, will be staged according to the same regulations by 2019 at the latest. A promotion to higher classes will also become standard across the series, meaning that it will not matter to junior riders whether they line up in the ADAC Northern Europe Cup or in one of the Dorna Talent Cups - the same conditions will apply in both series. Furthermore, travel costs for North European participants will decrease, as it will be relatively unimportant in the future in which of the series the young talents compete - they will participate in the cup closest to their home.

2017 Austria GP: MotoGP Race Results - Unfinished business, Dovizioso vs Marquez to reign the Ring


Some races immediately enter the history books as the flag falls. The 2017 Austrian GP proves one such example, as Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team) and Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team) staged a showcase of the best of the sport, right down to the wire. Almost side-by-side over the line, it was ‘DesmoDovi’ who took his third win of the year – with Marquez just keeping it on track for second in signature style. Dani Pedrosa (Repsol Honda Team) completed the podium, coming back from a Q1 hurdle on Saturday to make big points gains in the standings.

Polesitter Marquez took the holeshot, before a stunning move from Jorge Lorenzo (Ducati Team) saw him cut inside second-placed Dovizioso and then take Marquez on the exit - an incredible second ahead over the line at the end of Lap 1. Marquez slotted into second as Dovizioso threatened, with Valentino Rossi (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) a big mover - into fourth past teammate Maverick Viñales (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP).

His pace is good and, above all, his confidence in the medium rear that he will use tomorrow make him optimistic for a solid placement. It will be a comeback ride from the seventh row that will need to begin as soon as the lights go out.
