Alberto Moncayo and Carmelo Morales proclaimed Spanish 125GP and Extreme Champions

Alberto Moncayo and Carmelo Morales proclaimed Spanish 125GP and Extreme Champions

There was a brilliant end to the CEV Buckler 2009 at the Circuit de la Comunitat Valenciana, where Alberto Moncayo and Carmelo Morales were crowned Spanish 125GP and Extreme Champions respectively.

The victory of the Cadiz rider in the eighth-litre category was filled with tension in a race won by German rider Jonas Folger, who dominated from the start. Moncayo was occupied with controlling Maverick Viñales’ position, who was 11 points behind him, but was situated in the middle of a tight group and opted to not enter into any direct fights that could lead to a fall. Moncayo finished in tenth place, sufficient to take the title as Viñales placed fourth. The podium was formed by Folger, Frenchman Johann Zarco and American Patrick Jocobsen.

The Extreme title was a lot smoother for Caremlo Morales, who needed only two points more than Iván Silva in the race. Silva made a bad start however, finishing the first lap in 16th place, which handed the initiative to Morales, who enjoyed an intense fight for the race victory with Kenny Noyes and Javier del Amor which he won. Morales took his second consecutive title, the last before the category makes way for the Stock Extreme next year. Manuel Tirado was awarded the Spanish Privateer trophy after finishing seventh.

Moto2 shared the track with Extreme, as a total of ten prototypes were taken out with Dani Rivas achieving the best classification in eleventh, ahead of British rider Graeme Gowland.

Another category recently decided in the CEV Buckler was Supersport, which next year will be replaced by Moto2. With the title already won by Kev Coghlan in Jerez, Valencia made for an exciting race with five riders providing a spectacle. Jordi Torres achieved his second triumph of the season, ahead of Colombian Yonni Hernández and Spaniard Román Ramos, while Coghlan finished fourth. The highest privateer was Frenchman Jeremy Guarnoni in 11th, with Jorge Castellanos taking the Spanish Privateer award with 13th place.

In the Kawasaki Ninja Cup, Kyle David Smith won the Championship with his third victory of the season, in a race dominated from start to finish ahead of Ángel Molero and Jaumer Ferrer, who came second and third in the Cup.
