Jake Dixon has moved back into contention for the 2023 Moto2 World Championship title after taking a commanding second win of the season in the Catalunya Moto2.

The GasGas Aspar rider produced a mature ride to add to his maiden Grand Prix success at Assen prior to the summer break on a day when main rivals Pedro Acosta and Tony Arbolino failed to build significantly on their margins.

After qualifying on pole position, Dixon spent much of the race biding his time behind the feuding Aron Canet and Pedro Acosta before pouncing late on to take the lead back with four laps remaining.

Proceeding to resist the attentions of Canet all the way to the flag, Dixon collected the maximum 25 points which, combined with Acosta in sixth and Arbolino a lowly 17th, puts him 44 points shy of the former and 22 points behind the latter.

“This win is incredible. The team has done a great job with the set-up of the bike. The other riders were going really fast, so I have taken my time.  

“On the last lap I was on the limit, but in the end we have done it. I want to thank everyone. 

“This is the result of all the hard work we are doing. We already have two victories and we will go for more.”
