Valentino Rossi thrilled the world with his first MotoGP win for 15 months (and since Misano 2009 on home soil in Italy) in a spectacular display just a few miles from his home town of Tevullia. Championship leader Marc Marquez tried so hard to stay with the flying 'Doctor' that he fell, (remounting to score a point), leaving Jorge Lorenzo to complete Yamaha's domination. Dani Pedrosa was 3rd. Tito Rabat again beat pole man team mate Mika Kallio for Moto2 honours. Johann Zarco was 3rd. And in Moto3 it was Alex Rins beating Estrella Gallicia team mate Alex Marquez again, from series leader Jack Miller in third.
Marc Marquez overcame a determined effort by Jorge Lorenzo to take his 11th MotoGP win of the year at the British Grand Prix. Valentino Rossi was 3rd.

The last race of the day was Moto3, and it was another cracker. Alex Rins saved his celebration till the chequered flag this time, beating his team mate Alex Marquez by a tyres width. Third was sensational 16 year old Enea Bastianini.

And a stunning Moto3 event saw Alex Rins celebrate crossing the line first a lap early (and 9th at the actual chequered flag) while another 16 riders battled for full distance with Alexis Masbou getting his first ever GP win from Enea Bastianini and late charging Briton Danny Kent who grabbed 3rd on the line.
