This weekend the fourth round of the Spanish Speed Championship (CEV) was held at the Circuit de Catalunya (Barcelona), which housed its 100th race in the 15 th Anniversary of the Championship. On the track, over two thousand riders filled the grid and, like in all races, passion and excitement, due to speed, were the common denominator. BRIEFING COMPETICIÓ ran at home.
The free practice trainings on Friday focused on the fine tune of the motorbike, leaving good feelings to both the rider and the mechanics for the weekend.
The qualifying practices on Saturday, were held in two sets, which were marked by high track temperatures. And Alex achieved to stop the clock at 1.50,8, lowering in one second the time from Friday and thus achieving a new personal record. This time allowed him to qualify at position 29 of 41 enrolled in the category.
At 9 am on Sunday morning, the warmup started. Alex was on track getting the motorbike ready for the race. Two hours later the 40 riders took the start. After the first laps, Alex was in a group of riders that he overtook to reach position 25. With seven laps to go, the bike stopped because of an electrical problem, so he had to leave the race.
Despite the mechanical problem, we had good feelings towards the next races, where we look forward to giving another step in the second part of this season.
