Brad Binder takes strong sixth place finish at the Austrian GP
The Red Bull Ring hosted more than 90,000 fans this Sunday, and the gathered crowd enjoyed a breathtaking Moto2 race. As he did in the Czech Republic, Brad Binder finished in sixth place.
Brad Binder had a great first lap, entering the Top 5 after gaining 3 positions. The South African was in the second group, fighting for third position. The key moment of the race for Brad came with 4 laps remaining, when he was penalised for exceeding the track limits, had to give up a place, and lost valuable seconds. A final push allowed him to go up to sixth place by the time the chequered flag fell.
In the rider standings Brad gains a position to move into fourth. The next Moto2 round takes place on August 26th at Silverstone in the UK.

“Once again we finished in sixth place. The truth is that we were unlucky today. The key moment in the race was when I was penalised with losing a position. Additionally, that made me lose time with only four laps remaining and ended my chances of fighting for something more. Before that, I felt I could fight for the podium. The important thing is that in the end we have taken further points and that we are getting increasingly stronger.”
