Brad Binder turned Saturday’s qualifying for the MotoGP into a record-breaking event.

The South African managed to clock 366.1 km/h at Monza.

The previous record of 363.6km/h was set by Spain’s Jorge martin in 2022.

Before breaking the current record on Saturday, Binder shared the second-fastest top speed record of 362.4km/h with Johann Zarco. That record was set in 2021.

Unfortunately, Binder crashed on Saturday afternoon and he eventually started Sunday’s race 10th on the grid.

Binder wasn’t the only rider breaking records while preparing for the Italian MotoGP.

The current world champion Francesco Bagnaia sealed the pole position and posted the new fastest lap ever. The new Monza track record is 1min and 44.855 seconds.

At Sunday’s race, Bagnaia ended up winning the race followed by Martin and Zarco in second and third place respectively.

Binder ended up in fifth position after Italy’s Marini in fourth position.
