Crutchlow seventh in Japan


Cal Crutchlow finished seventh in the Japanese Grand Prix yesterday, the penultimate round of this year's MotoGP championship.

The Ramsey resident was also the first non-factory team rider to cross the finishing line.

Crutchlow sits in fifth place in the championship standings, 36 points behind fourth-placed Valentino Rossi.

Twenty-year-old Marc Marquez can become the youngest champion in the premier class of grand prix racing's 64-year history by finishing at least fourth in the final round in Valencia on November 10.
