Video: Fabio Quartararo, Roman Ramos and Xavi Fores, CEV Repsol 2013 Champions
The last round of the CEV Repsol that was held yesterday at the Jerez Circuit revealed the names of its three Champions after an exciting day. Against all odds, French Fabio Quartararo took the Moto3 title at only 14 years old. In Moto2 and Stock Extreme, the favourites –Roman Ramos and Xavi Fores–, secured the titles in their respective categories.
The surprise of the day arrived in the smallest displacement class. French rider Fabio Quartararo secured the Moto3 CEV Repsol title in his first year in the Championship. Quartararo, who won the last three rounds, benefited from the incidents suffered by the favourite contenders –a crash for Maria Herrera and a technical failure for Alejandro Medina. After this result and at only 14 years-old, the French rider took the national Moto3 title in his first year at the CEV Repsol and only by one point over Marcos Ramirez, second.
In the intermediate class, Roman Ramos used the calculator to secure the title in a race where victory went for the fourth time this season to his main rival for the title –Alex Mariñelarena–, who finished first ahead of Malaysia’s Hafyzh Syahrin. After being on the podium the whole season, today Roman Ramos had enough with his fifth place to take his first CEV Repsol Title thanks to his 20-point advantage.
In the first of the two Stock Extreme races, Carmelo Morales and Ivan Silva fought hard to prevent Xavi Fores to secure the title in his first chance. The three riders offered an exciting battle won in the end by Carmelo Morales, followed by Fores and Silva. The latter was penalized with 1 position due to a hit with Morales, so the third position went to Kenny Noyes.
In the last race, Fores was able to finish second behind Ivan Silva and Carmelo Morales did not finish due to a crash. With this new triumph, Fores achieved his second CEV Repsol title –he won the first in 2010– and adds it to the European Championship he won last October in Albacete.
