Britain's Scott Redding has taken fourth in the MotoGP Indy 125cc race this afternoon after it was stopped early because of more rain coming from Hurricane Ike.

Redding got a blinding start from ninth on the grid to get into the first corner in fourth place and was up to second a turn behind poleman Pol Espargaro with Nicolas Terol in third.

Espargaro did a disappearing act and pulled out a one second lead on the first lap. Redding made a mistake coming onto the pit straight on lap one which allowed Terol to make up some time.


Terol then set about chasing down Espargaro while Redding circulated in a lonely third but was being caught by a pack of four riders including Stefan Bradl and Simone Corsi.

With ten laps to go, Redding got a hurry up on his pitboard and upped his laptimes. On the same lap, rain began to fall and three laps later Redding was passed by four riders after he had a problem on the straight.

As the rain came down both Terol and Espargaro slowed, allowing Redding, Corsi, Bradl and Mark Marquez to catch them. But with six laps left, the reg flags came out. Redding was credited with four as the result is counted back from the last lap.

Bradley Smith and Danny Webb got disastrous starts, with Webb dropping from the front row to 20th while Smith was five places lower after having a coming together with Ranseder.

The pairing slowly climbed their way back through the field with Bradley finishing eighth and Webb taking the last point in 15th.

Terol got the win, Espargaro was second with Bradl in third.
