Scott Redding is no stranger to holding a few records – he is the youngest rider ever to win a Grand Prix race after his victory in Donington in 2008, aged just 15, and he was also the youngest rider to reach 50 race starts.

Today may have been the first Moto2 win For Scott Redding and the first victory in any Grand Prix class for his Marc VDS Team but the firsts didn’t stop there here’s a quick breakdown

  • First British winner in the intermediate class since Jeremy McWilliams in Assen (2001)

  • Redding’s win in Le Mans is the first non-Spanish GP win in any class since Danny Kent won last Moto3 race of last year at Valencia

  • It is 30 years ago since the last British GP win at Le Mans – Alan Carter in the 250cc race (1983)

Surely a case for a competitive ride for the Gloucester born rider in MotoGP next year?
