FIM Cev Repsol Quartararo Breaks Records At A FIM Cev Repsol Round Where Raffin Won In Moto2 And Noyes In Superbike

The FIM CEV Repsol in Barcelona-Catalunya saw Fabio Quartararo arise as the star of the event. The French rider signed a faultless weekend where he was able to achieve two crushing victories in the two Moto3 races. Quartararo also set the fastest lap and the circuit record, beating the times set respectively by the World Championship riders Alex Marquez and John McPhee last weekend during the Catalunya Grand Prix.

Jesko Raffin achieved a new success at the Moto2 race that gave him the lead of the overall standings, two points ahead of Florian Alt. In Superbike, Kenny Noyes secured his third victory of the season and increased his advantage in the lead of the Championship to 14 points, thanks to his third win of the season.

Fabio Quartararo shone again at the FIM CEV Repsol. In this new round of the series, the French rider left no doubts and won the two races that took place today. To his record pole set yesterday with a time of 1 minute, 50 seconds and 135 thousandths, Quartararo adds the circuit record he set today during the first race: 1 minute, 50 seconds and 932 thousandths.

Japan’s Hiroki Ono and Valencian Jorge Navarro completed the two podiums today –exchanging the second and third position–, in a double race where Maria Herrera had a crash in the first race and finished eighth in the second.

In the overall standings, Fabio Quartararo increased his advantage and after taking 5 of the 6 wins up for grabs, he is 52 points ahead of the second, Jorge Navarro, and 56 ahead of Hiroki Ono, third.

The intermediate class saw the 17 laps of today’s race reduced due to an incident in the first corner that involved Miquel Pons, Russell Gomez and Bastien Chesaux, that forced the race to be stopped and restarted later, this time with only 9 laps.

During this brief second part, Switzerland’s Jesko Raffin, the German rider Florian Alt and South African Steven Odendaal reached the end of the race with chances to secure the win. Alt was the first to attack, but Raffin reacted quickly and, from the third position, he overtook first Odendaal and then Alt, who could do nothing to prevent the Swiss rider to achieve his third consecutive victory of the year.

With this success, Raffin took the overall lead from Germany’s Alt, who is now second only two points away. Third overall is Sebas Porto, who today finished in fourth place.

In the biggest class, Kenny Noyes achieved his third consecutive win. A victory for which the American had to fight hard against Carmelo Morales, the two riders offered a beautiful duel up to the second to last lap. In that lap Morales had launched his final attack and led the race with Noyes at his wheel, but an unfortunate crash threw him out of the race –and causing him to fracture both feet– thus leaving a free way for the American. More than 12 seconds behind him, Dani Rivas and Ivan Silva crossed the Finish line in second and third.

With this result, Kenny Noyes increased his overall lead to 14 points ahead of Ivan Silva, second, and 21 ahead of Santi Barragan, third.
