Nicolas Terol powered to an commanding victory in the 125cc race at Indianapolis.
Starting from pole, Terol got a solid start and managed to stretch his lead to a few bike lengths within the first few corners.
Terol set continuous fast laps, and by the halfway point he was so far out in front that his 11 second lead made it look like he was on an American Roadtrip with no other traffic visible on the road behind him.
The action was left to Zarco, Vinales, Gadea, and Cortese, who all battled hard for second place.
Johann Zarco and Maverick Vinales fought hard for supremacy on the track, and just as the battle was really heating up Zarco almost came off track at the last corner coming on to the long Indy straight. Maverick Vinales made the most of the incident and pulled ahead into a comfortable second place, however his gap didn’t last long as Sandro Cortese closed him down and passed him with 4 laps to go. Both riders exchanged positions in the last few laps, but it was Vinales that claimed second and Cortese had to make do with third.
Meanwhile, Zarco put on a solid comeback to take 5th place by beating his team-mate by a fraction of a second as they both appeared to cross the finish line side by side.
