Great wasn't it ? Potential superstar in the making, fingers crossed.

Well worth an A+.

I wasn't able to see the race live but watched it back last night and enjoyed the whole thing enormously (Alan Davies should join the Eurosport guys more often!).

This season it's been interesting to see our apparent next GP winner Bradley Smith turning into something of a crasher, whilst Scott has been quietly doing a good job on less than top quality machinery.

Then when the conditions were right he and another guy in a similar position race away from a field and only one of them makes the finish. A six-second win is like an eternity in the 125s and from a guy 8 races into a career in a "normal" dry race - well it's just astounding to see.

Funniest moment had to be when di Meglio got his champers on the podium, Scott kind of beckoned him over with a sort-of "give us a swig" action. Underage drinking tsk tsk :lol: :lol:

Youngest rider to ever win any race in the history of GP bike racing beating Melandri's record by about 6 months.

To put this in context, Valentino Rossi who I hear is quite quick on occasion won his 11th GP at the age of 17.

Current young scamp in the top class Lorenzo won his 26th GP at the age of 16y 4m.

Redding's doing alright then!

If Redding is 15 and beat the record by 6 months, just how quickly did Lorenzo rattle his wins off to get to 26 by the age of 16 1/3 ?

I don’t normally switch on until lunchtime, so I haven’t been following the 125s this year. I had heard the name but didn’t really know much about him.

I don’t normally take much pleasure when someone crashes out, but in this case I was quite happy when Iannone’s front end went away. I think Scott may have got him anyway because he was making him push too hard, but it took any uncertainty away. I might even switch on early for Assen on Saturday.

Lastly, how old did Marquez look? Scott looked positively ancient by comparison.
