Elf Marc VDS Racing’s Tony Arbolino won the FIM Moto2 World Championship race Sunday at the 2.6-mile (4.2 km) Bugatti Circuit, in Le Mans, France. The Italian rider won the race, his first of the season, by 0.620 second over QJMotor Gresini rider Celestino Vietti. Lightech Speedup’s Alonso Lopez was a relatively close third.
Americans Joe Roberts and Sean Dylan Kelly (SDK) finished 12th and 16th, respectively.
The race was stopped by a red flag shortly after the original start due to four riders – including pole-sitter Sam Lowes — crashing. A complete restart of 14 laps was then run. Lowes, Arbolino’s teammate, finished 15th.
