Championships won in opening FIM CEV Repsol race day

The FIM Moto3™ JWCh gave an enthralling spectacle, although big crashes on the exit of Turn 14 for David Salvador (Cuna De Campeones) and Gerard Riu (AGR Team) meant the Red Flag came out. A 12-lap restart saw poleman Pedro Acosta (MT-Foundation 77) grab the lead whilst fellow Spaniard Daniel Holgado (Openbank Aspar Team) passed Japan’s Takuma Matsuyama (Asia Talent Team). However, the man on the move was Izan Guevara and whilst Jose Julian Garcia (SIC 58 Squadra Corse) took a long lap penalty and Matsuyama fell back, the three Spaniards fought to the end. Passing Holgado at Turn 8 and Acosta at Turn 14 on the last lap, Guevara took a fifth victory and the Championship lead for the first time. Xavier Artigas (Leopard Impala Junior Team) didn’t score points after a problem on the grid before lights went out for the restart, and drops to second overall.
