The Albacete Circuit saw today yet another success for the Spanish riders at the FIM CEV Repsol, as they took the highest step of the podium something that had not happened since the first round in Jerez. In Moto3, the rider that made the national anthem sound was Valencia’s Jorge Navarro, whose victory stopped French Fabio Quartararo’s winning streak, as he was second today. Swiss rider Jesko Raffin achieved a crushing victory in the intermediate class, while Angel Rodriguez and the rider from Barcelona Ivan Silva won each one of the races that were held today in the Superbike class.

Now the FIM CEV Repsol will take a break and will resume the action next September 7th, in Navarra.

Jorge Navarro will have good memories from today. The Valencian was able to stop Fabio Quartararo’s streak of four consecutive wins by taking his first victory at the FIM CEV Repsol. Despite the French rider was starting from pole position, Navarro and Gabriel Rodrigo surprised him at the start and they both reached the first corner ahead of Quartararo, who finished the first lap in fourth place. In the fourth lap, the Frenchman was already second, but Navarro took advantage of the first laps to build a margin of more than two seconds, that Fabio was not able to recover and so finished in second.

Behind them, up to 7 riders were battling for the third step on the podium, offering a beautiful show that lasted until the very last corner, where Australian Remy Gardner passed Italian Andrea Migno through the inside and took the third place in Albacete. Maria Herrera, who started fourteenth, finished ninth.

In the overall standings, Quartararo keeps the lead with 165 points, followed 47 points behind by today’s winner, Jorge Navarro, and by Japan’s Hiroki Ono, 71 points behind.
In the intermediate class, Jesko Raffin closed the first half of the season in style, with his fourth victory of the year from five races. Today, the Swiss rider started better than anyone else and quickly built a margin over the rest of riders, who could do nothing to stop him. There were many crashes in Moto2, and one of them forced to consider the race finished on lap 17 of the 20 originally in the program, due to some oil on track. At that moment, Raffin was leading with a 4-second advantage over Sebas Porto and Xavi Vierge, who accompanied him on the podium.

With this result, Jesko Raffin increased his overall lead to 14 points ahead of the second, German Florian Alt, and 31 over the third, Sebas Porto.

In the biggest displacement category, Ivan Silva finished the two races held with a good result: the overall lead. Although the rider from Barcelona had an off-track excursion in the first race and finished fifth – victory went to Angel Rodriguez–, in the second race he took his revenge and achieved his first win of the season ahead of Dani Rivas.

Those two results, combined with a crash and a fourth place for Noyes, allowed Silva to take the overall Superbike lead with 97 points. Kenny Noyes is now second 9 points behind and the rider from Venezuela Robertino Pietri is third, 11 points behind Silva.
