- October 15, 2017
A rain soaked circuit at Motegi earlier today was the venue for one of the best races of the year. The two remaining contenders for the 2017 championship, Marc Marquez (Honda) and Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati) engaged in an epic battle over the last few laps for the win.
After Marquez dove under the rival Ducati in the final corner, Dovizioso was able to square-up the corner and beat Marquez to the checkered flag. As a result, with 3 races remaining (and a total of 75 championship points still to be counted), Marquez leads Dovizioso by a slim 11 point margin in the championship.
