Imola (Italy), April 9 (IANS) Mahindra Racing’s Riccardo Moretti and Sarath Kumar finished first and seventh in the second race of the Italian Championships 125cc category.

After heavy rain, the track was still wet for the race Sunday.

Moretti got a good start and had to fight immediately with other riders to take the lead.

At the end of lap 10, Moretti got the chequered flag while his team-mate Kumar ended securing his first points of the Championships.

“It has been a really tough race. My bike improved a lot compared to yesterday’s qualifying, but we were not still 100 percent with the set-up. My technicians were still impressive to allow me to win the second race in a row,” said Moretti.

Moretti maintains the lead in the standings with 50 points while Kumar is ninth, thanks to the nine points earned here. The next race will take place April 29 at Monza.
