Simone Corsi – Race Winner

It was a perfect weekend; I´m very happy. It was a fantastic race. We had a good setup and I waited to see what happened on the last lap, because my attempt to break to break away from Joan Olive early wasn´t successful. I waited until the final lap, and held on for the win.´

Nico Terol – Second Placed

`It´s my second consecutive podium, so I´m pleased with that. I passed Joan and I went wide trying to overtake Corsi, and then when Smith crashed in front of me after that it distracted me. I am happy and enjoyed the race.´

Joan Olive

`I am pleased, but at the end of the day I would prefer to be first! I tried from the start, and waited for the last lap, but I didn't do it that well. The last corner is important if you want to win this race, but I made a mistake that meant I couldn´t catch Simone.´
