Tony Arbolino won the Moto2 Argentina 2023 at the Termas de Rio Hondo Circuit, Sunday (2/4), after winning a fierce duel against Alonso Lopez.
Jake Dixon had led the race after a fierce duel with Lopez. But the racer who had just become a father lost a duel against Alonso.
Interesting duel then occurred between Alonso and Arbolino. Entering the sixth lap, the two drivers overtook each other. Coupled with Dixon stalking in third place, the race became even more interesting.
Arbolino finally managed to get out of the pressure of Lopez in the last three laps. The Marc VdS racer was 0.663 seconds ahead of Alonso. Dixon took third place on the podium, 1.961 seconds adrift.
Aron Canet had to settle for fourth. The Spaniard started in the front row, but a jump start violation resulted in Canet being hit by a double long lap penalty during the race.
