With a sixth place in the Grand Prix of Great Britain in the Moto2 class, our compatriot Barry Baltus (Kalex Fieten Ollie Racing GP) achieved the best World Cup result of his career on Sunday. The Spaniard Fermin Aldeguer (Boscoscuro Speed Up Racing) drove to victory in the ninth world championship round at the Silverstone circuit. His compatriot Pedro Acosta (Kalex Red Bull KTM Ajo) is the new World Championship leader.
Baltus started eighth and had an excellent start, immediately gaining two places. The native of Name then moved up two more places in the first half of the race, helped in part by the fall of Spaniard Alonso Lopez.
Baltus briefly kept pace with the front runners, but eventually fell back a bit when American Joe Roberts snatched him from fourth place in the ninth of 17 laps. In the end, our compatriot finished in sixth place, his best World Cup result ever.
With his first Moto2 win, Fermin Aldeguer dominated an all-Spanish podium, ahead of Aron Canet (Kalex Pons Wegow Los40) and Pedro Acosta, the new World Championship leader.
The next round will take place on October 20 in Spielberg, Austria.
