Stuart Easton makes it 3 in a row at Macau (w/videos)

Written By: -

Stuart Easton took his third consective win at Macau GP today. The Scottish rider riding for Paul Bird Motorsport team won the gruelling road race, despite Michael Rutter on board the Team of Paris AXA Ducati, being tipped for the win after taking the pole position and desperately wanting to regain his Macau crown.

The race was red flagged after 6 laps following a crash by Chris Peris, who suffered a mild right lung contusion and concussion and was carted off to the hospital.

In the restart, Easton grabbed the lead again, but was reeled in by Rutter, but the Kawasaki rider set a new lap record on lap 7 with a magnificent 2:23.616, to which Rutter couldn’t respond to and had to settle for a distant second.

Jeremy Toye on the Lee’s Cycles Racing BMW took third place after Simon Andrews was hit by a mechanical problem on the final lap.

“When I saw that Rutter had caught me, I was devastated after trying so hard to break free. I thought if he could catch me after all that, there was no way I could beat him. But I tried again and managed to open a gap once more,
” said Easton.

“I tried to catch Stuart mid-way through the race but then I hit the trackside Armco and said to myself, once is enough. I’m not doing that any more,”
said Rutter.
