The Circuito de Albacete on Sunday was the scene of the seventh round of the FIM CEV Repsol season, with Edgar Pons (Baiko Racing Team) claiming the Moto2™ European Championship title and Jeremy Alcoba (Laglisse Academy) getting within a whisker of the FIM Moto3™ Junior World Championship title.
FIM Moto3™ JWCh leader Jeremy Alcoba took his second victory of the season in a hotly disputed race. The Laglisse Academy rider had his first shot at the title and initially led the race closely trailed by a large group which included Barry Baltus (Ángel Nieto Junior Team), Carlos Tatay (Fundación Andreas Pérez 77), Ryusei Yamanaka (Junior Team Estrella Galicia 0.0), Deniz Öncü (KTM Red Bull Ajo) and Daniel Holgado (Junior Team Estrella Galicia 0.0), among others. Carlos Tatay, Jeremy Alcoba and Ryusei Yamanaka took turns at the head of the race. Behind, Xavier Artigas (Leopard Impala Junior) made a superb comeback, starting off second to last and somehow getting in touch with the chasing group.
On the last lap, Carlos Tatay overshot trying to take the lead from Jeremy Alcoba; in doing so he put himself out of the running and left Daniel Holgado to finish second ahead of Barry Baltus. However, Carlos Tatay was finally judged third after a one-position penalty against Barry Baltus. Ryusei Yamanaka came in fifth and Xavier Artigas sixth, followed by Deniz Öncü. Jeremy Alcoba will go to the final round of the season in Valencia 46 points ahead of Carlos Tatay with 50 points at stake; in other words, 5 points is all he needs to take the title. The race winner was awarded the Repsol free fuel cheque.
