TAKA CLAIMS POINTS FINISH IN SAN MARINO GP
Takaaki Nakagami fought his way to a points finish at the San Marino Grand Prix after a tough 27-lap MotoGP race at Misano. The LCR Honda IDEMITSU rider showed trademark determination throughout as he ensured he took something from round 14 of the 2022 World Championship on the Rimini riviera.
Starting from the eighth row, the Japanese star got away well, but had to dodge an incident at the first corner which saw three riders crash out. He then battled with Honda colleague Stefan Bradl for much of the race, pushing hard in the second half and eventually moving up into the points places in the closing stages.
