The record came at the end of stunning Moto3 race at MotorLand Aragon, which saw over 20 riders in the leading group covered by just a few seconds. To take the flag, Masia had to keep a cool head amidst huge pressure from a pack of highly competitive riders, all thirsty for the win. With three laps left on the board, Masia moved into the lead but his rivals retaliated. Honda power shot Masia down the back straight to clinch a historic win.
