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

June 22, 2008 Scott Red­ding may not have been old enough to drink, drive or get mar­ried, but he was old enough to win the Bri­tish 125 GP! The 15-year-old be­came the youngest rider ever to win a GP and had 90.000 Bri­tish fans scream­ing his name as he hounded An­drea lan­none for 20 laps. The Ital­ian fi­nally cracked and crashed... sur­prise, sur­prise! Red­ding said: "To win a GP is a dream. It was still a dream when I woke up on Sun­day morn­ing but I had real fight in me." Even Valentino Rossi was im­pressed. He said: "The lit­tle b d. He won his first race in shorter time than me. I hate him be­cause he is half my age — he is in­cred­i­ble!" And Red­ding did it again — this time in Moto2 in 2013. Just Mo­toGP now for a grand slam of Bri­tish GPs!
