Malaysia(Sepang) 2017



The Report on Sepang will unfortunately not be able to be produced due to pressures on my time caused by various factors not least of which is the fact that three reports are required for this weekend. But these are the facts to be going along with and I have reproduced the brief summary that always appears on the Home Page after the event to give a brief idea of how the race developed.

After the disasterous Phillip Island round for Ducati and Andrea Dovizioso, in particular, the whole team needed to return to winning ways and that is just what they did with a superb 1 - 2 composed of Andrea victorious and Jorge 2nd, which leaves Dovizioso only 21 points down on Marq Marquez so although it will be difficult it is just possible that he could be the Champion whereas after Phillip Island it was highly unlikely and Marc was off song in Sepang but still scored 13 points. In Valencia, on 12th November, we shall see what we shall see!
