Grand finale in Valencia with two titles to be decided

Grand finale in Valencia with two titles to be decided

The Circuit de la Comunitat Valenciana will be the venue where the 125GP and Extreme titles are decided this weekend.

Alberto Moncayo and Carmelo Morales are the leading candidates respectively in the 125GP and Extreme categories, although both were also in such a position in Jerez last week before circumstances in each race postponed a decision until this Sunday.

Moncayo’s fall in Jerez reduced his lead over Maverick Viñales to 11 points, so the stakes are high. There are 69 registered participants for this race, with World Championship riders Jonas Folger, Johann Zarco, Lorenzo Savadori and Luca Vitali amongst them.

Carmelo Morales’ incident with his team-mate Javier del Amor postponed the Castellar del Vallés rider’s celebration for the Extreme title. Morales must now score two points in Valencia if Iván Silva wins the race to secure his second consecutive title, in a season in which he has already been crowned European Champion.

Moto2 has an unprecedented number of bikes registered, with the possibility of an independent race on Sunday to be decided upon by Race Direction on Friday, or the continuation of integration into the Extreme race. The main attraction is the world premiere of the MZ built by Ralf Waldmann and Martin Wimmer, which will be ridden by former MotoGP rider, Australian Anthony West.

In the Supersport category, Kev Coghlan has already taken the Spanish Champion title ahead of main rivals Adrián Bonastre, Jordi Torres, Yonni Hernández and Iván Moreno.

The race programme also includes the final round of the Kawasaki Ninja Cup, in which local rider Kyle Smith has everything in his favour. He has a 15-point lead over Ángel Molero and 16 over Jaume Ferrer, winner of the last round at the Circuit de Catalunya.
