Three awesome things about Khairul Idham Pawi’s Argentina Moto3 victory

1. He is just 17 years old and it was only his 3rd race.

2. It was the 1st victory by a Malaysian in any sort of Motorcycle Grand Prix.

3. He won by 26 seconds which is amazing when you consider the average winning margin over the last 9 Moto3 races was just 1.1 seconds.

It’s great to see young talent grabbing an early opportunity to shine.

The last Formula E race was amazing

As per this graphic, last month’s Formula E race in Argentina was a thriller. Not only did Sébastien Buemi go on a stunning charge from the back of the grid (which saw him overtake almost every other driver) but there were was constant jostling for position throughout the whole field. Here’s hoping for another spectacular race when the series visits Mexico this weekend.

MotoGP: The Rossi-Marquez crash was a huge moment for MotoGP

The crash in Argentina between Valentino Rossi and Marc Marquez adds spice to a rivalry that’s already quite special. Rossi is one of the greatest motorcycle riders of all time and the tail of his career is overlapping with that of Marquez, the sport’s new superstar. Rossi is essentially fighting a younger version of himself and the racing between them is spectacular. This amazing rivalry turned a little bit nasty with the crash in Argentina and it now has all the ingredients to become something truly epic.
