Le Mans, France - Earlier in 2016, Wheels24 we reported on South Africa's Brad Binder winning the 2016 Jerez Moto3 GP.

In May 2016, the young South African racer South Africa's Brad Binder grabbed his second win in as many races with a fantastic victory at the French Moto3 grand prix at the Le Mans' Bugatti circuit.

He extends his lead in the world championship title race.

Leading the championship

The KTM rider recorded successive wins after his debut triumph in Spain, beating team mate Romano Fenati and Honda rider Jorge Navarro. The 20-year-old from Potchefstroom has a 24 point lead ahead of Navarro and 35 ahead of Fenati

Binder and Fenati fought for the lead over 24 laps and the pair was joined by Navarro and Aron Canet in a four-way battle to the line.

Binder's success at Jerez de la Frontera earlier in 2016 was a first for a South African in the world championship since Jon Ekerold in 1981.
