Herreros honoured at Valencia

Manuel ‘Champi' Herreros, the last World Champion of the now defunct 80cc class, was honoured on Sunday afternoon at the Ricardo Tormo circuit in Cheste, where the eleventh corner now bears his name. After the 250cc race, Herreros completed a lap of the circuit in a car waving to the Spanish crowds before stopping at ‘his' corner where he was presented with a bust to honour him.

Herreros won the 80cc World Championship in 1989 with four consecutive second places in the six-round season. He had previously taken two victories in the class and also secured one podium finish in the 125cc class.
