The Motul TT Assen brought MotoGP back to one of the most renowned and prestigious circuits of the Grand Prix. The ninth round of the 2021 world championship season at the Assen TT circuit saw Red Bull KTM Ajo once again dominate the middle class with Raul Fernandez triumphant just ahead of teammate Remy Gardner.

– Fernandez wins the third Moto2 victory of the rookie season, Gardner the 2nd

– Red Bull KTM Ajo won six of nine Moto2 Grand Prix in 2021 and with four 1-2 results

– Acosta finished 4th in Moto3 after recovering from an accident on Saturday

Moto3

The 22-lap Moto3 competition opened the racing day which dawned with hot but cloudy conditions in the Drenthe region of the Netherlands. CIP Green Power’s Kaito Toba was the leading KTM RC4 rider on the grid in 5th place, but Red Bull KTM Ajo’s Jaume Masia was not far behind in 10th. The Spaniard’s teammate, a teenager and Moto3 racer, Pedro Acosta was declared fit to race after his crash on Saturday which initially excluded him from Q2 and saw him start from 18th place on the wire rack.

The rookie charged to compete for the podium. With five laps to go, the leading group consisted of nine riders and Acosta was at the back of the pack. He pushed to 4th place and was only 1.3 seconds behind winner Dennis Foggia. Deniz Öncü of Red Bull KTM Tech3 finished 15th while Masia finished the day 20th after having to take a passing penalty.

Acosta’s advantage in the Moto3 standings is still 48 points over Sergio Garcia.

Moto2

Raul Fernandez of Red Bull KTM Ajo has started from pole for the fourth time in the last five Grands Prix, but had his team-mate, championship leader and winner of the previous three rounds, Remy Gardner for company in the first row. The Spaniard and Australian held positions in a fumble top four as Fernandez impressively recovered from a mistake in first circulation to take the lead with less than five laps to go. He set a new track lap record of a one-second gap over Gardner at the finish line. Assen was the sixth time this year the two riders have climbed the podium together and the fourth time they have placed 1-2.

Remy is 31 points ahead of Fernandez and has only missed the top three once this season.

Raul Fernandez: “It was an incredible race. I’m a bit destroyed because I had two bad laps at the start and had to really push to recover. It was a mentally tough race but I want to say a big thank you to my team for giving me an amazing bike. In the end, I was really strong.

Now halfway through the season, MotoGP takes a five-week hiatus and resumes with back-to-back events at the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg, Austria, the first two weekends in August.

Northern Talent Cup

Lorenz Luciano won the first of two races (fourth of seven) at the Motul TT Assen with a solid line out of the Gert Timmer curve and won the checkered flag in a fraction of a second. For the second sprint in the Netherlands, the Belgian was once again part of the leading peloton but it was Rossi Moor who comfortably rolled towards victory for his second success in as many heats.
