Toni Elias took one step closer to claiming the first Moto2 Championship title with victory in Japan. Only Julian Simon can now score enough potential points to derail Elias’s championship hopes, however this is unlikley as Elias currently holds an 81 point gap over Simon, and there are only 100 points remaining from the last 4 races.
Toni Elias dedicated his Moto2 vcitory to Shoya Tomizawa.

“I am really happy with this win, which moves us closer to the title. We have worked well all weekend and it was an important victory for me because I wanted to dedicate it to Tomizawa. I would have liked to have done it at Aragon but maybe winning Shoya’s home race for him is an even bigger tribute. I took control of the race pretty early but Simon didn’t make life easy for me. In the end I managed to hold him off and I’m really pleased. I am also happy to have won for Moriwaki at their home circuit. It has been a great day.”
