MACKEN­ZIE WOWS THE CROWDS

Motorcycle News (UK) - - 2016 Motorgp Silverstone Preview -

Au­gust 6, Don­ing­ton Park Niall Macken­zie (6) sent over 100,000 Don­ing­ton fans wild as he rock­eted to the front of the 500 GP ahead of Wayne Rainey (3), Kevin Sch­wantz (34) and Ed­die Law­son (1). All four fought fran­ti­cally for the full 30-lap en­counter. In the end Sch­wantz edged it from Law­son, while Macken­zie had a heart­break­ing end to his valiant bid for vic­tory. First his front tyre went off and then he started to run out of fuel and Rainey pipped him for the last podium place. In the end, the three Amer­i­cans dragged Macken­zie up onto the sun-soaked stage as the fans showed their ap­pre­ci­a­tion for a truly mes­meris­ing race.
