2012 Phillip Island Moto2 Race Result: Dominant Victory Ahead Of Hard-Fought Podium

Results and notes on the Moto2 race at Phillip Island:

Pol Espargaro extended his dominance of the Moto2 class at Phillip Island, winning the race with the same ease he dominated practice throughout the weekend, though a poor start meant he had to work for victory. Winning was the only thing Espargaro could do to try to keep his title hopes alive, but he was dependent on Marc Marquez. Marquez had other ideas, riding a strong race to take 3rd, and clinching a richly-deserved Moto2 title, his aim before he moved up to the MotoGP. Ant West added a dry-weather podium to his previous wet one at Sepang last week, much to the delight of his home crowd.

What a great ride for West. Awesome last couple laps. I hope he can get a good ride out of this for next year.
