 In JuniorGP, Moto2, Moto3, News

The CEV Buckler meeting at Motorland Aragón far exceeded expectations. More than 100 riders competed on the Argonese circuit to be the fastest in their category.

In Moto3, victory fell into the hands of German rider Luca Amato in a heart stopping battle. After a race in which over 9,000 racing fans attending MotorLand were kept on the edge of their seat, Amato took the win right on the finishing line, stealing victory from Álex Márquez and Juanfran Guevara.

Jordi Torres added his second straight win in Moto2 after dominating the race from the first lap. Román Ramos, after succumbing to the pace of Torres, had to concentrate his efforts in defending his position and was able to cross the line in second after fending off American Kenny Noyes who took third, repeating positions he achieved in both Jerez and Navarra. The best Privateer award went to Colombian, Santiago Hernández, who finished fourth in a race where he fought hard for a podium place.

Stock Extreme returned to show its great level of competitiveness, making it tricky to predict the race outcome. Carmelo Morales was victorious, but it was not made easy for him after a tough fight with Santiago Barragán, who eventually finished second. Javier Del Amor achieved his best 2012 CEV Buckler finish by earning himself third place. Xavi Forés, a strong contender for the podium, against all odds, was denied points after his bike suffered mechanical problems. Antonio Alarcos was the winner in the privateer category.

CEV Buckler will celebrate its 100th race in the next round of the competition to take place on the 23rd and 24th of June at the Circuit de Catalunya, where a celebration will take place to commemorate the 15 year history of the CEV.
