MOTOGP: History was made in the final Moto3 race of the year as 15-year-old Can Oncu triumphed* in Valencia, Spain.
The Turkish teenager ran away with the race in the end, winning by a gap of more than four seconds after race leader Tony Arbolino crashed out.
The previous record was held by British rider Scott Redding, who was 15 years and 170 days old when he won his first Moto3 race in 2008 in the UK but Oncu, at 15 years and 119 days, has now broken that record in the wet at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo.
There was a nervous heart-in-mouth moment for Oncu on the final lap as he nearly came off his bike. But he managed to recover to win his first ever race on what was his debut*.
Oncu had already broken the record for the youngest-ever rider in Moto3.
“Incredible feeling,” he said after the race. “I don’t know what’s going on. I’m really, really happy. I’m in the best team, thank you everybody.”
