Anthony West's win in the Moto2 race at Assen came exactly eleven years after his only other GP win, in the 250cc race at the same circuit in 2003.

That sets a new record for the longest time between two grand prix victories.

The record was previously held by Tommy Robb who went for 10 years and 258 days between winning 350cc Finnish GP at Tampere in 1962 and the 125cc Isle of Man TT race in 1973.

West also became the first Australian rider to win in the Moto2 class, which replaced 250cc in 2010, and - at 32 years and 346 days - the oldest. West joins Toni Elias, Alex de Angelis, Mika Kallio, Roberto Rolfo and Yuki Takahashi as a winner in 250cc and Moto2.
