The FIM CEV Repsol arrives at the
The fourth event of the championship will take place at the
Barcelona-Catalunya Circuit. This will be the mid-point of the season for the
Moto3™, Moto2™-Superstock 600, Superbike and Kawasaki Z Cup riders, who will
have the pleasure of riding on the track that just a few days ago hosted the
MotoGP™ World Championship.
Fabio Quartararo (FRA-Honda) will defend his 38-point lead at the head of the
rankings in Moto3. Teammate María Herrera (SPA-Honda) will be looking for a
good performance on a circuit she knows well after her experience as a wild
card rider in the Monster Energy GP of Catalunya. Outstanding riders such as
Jorge Navarro (SPA-Ioda), Gabriel Rodrigo (SPA-KTM), Hiroki Ono (JPN-TSR) and
Andrea Migno (ITA-Kalex) will be ready to defend their positions in the top ten
of the overall standings.
An interesting struggle is anticipated in Moto2, where there is no dominant
leader. The race at MotorLand Aragón showed that there are many riders all
looking to be – and capable of being - number one. Florian Alt (GER-Kalex) is
leading the results table followed by Jesko Raffin (SWI-Kalex) thanks to his
two recent resounding victories. Level on 36 points, Edgar Pons (SPA-Kalex),
Alan Techer (FRA-Tech3) and Sebastián Porto (ARG-Kalex) complete the top five.
Leading the Superstock 600 category are Gourin Thibaut (FRA-Yamaha), Ferrán
Casas (SPA-Yamaha) and Jorge Arroyo (SPA-Yamaha).
The Superbike category is just as hotly disputed. Kenny Noyes (USA- Kawasaki)
has shown his intention to hang on to the top slot on the podium, as confirmed
by his double victory at the Aragón circuit. However, Carmelo Morales
(SPA-Kawasaki) and Iván Silva (SPA-BMW), five points behind, hope to repeat the
good results that have stood them in good stead so far. Robertino Pietri
(VEN-Kawasaki) and Santiago Barragán (SPA-Kawasaki) have also shown recently
that they are riders to be taken seriously in the category. The top privateer
riders are Eeki Kuparinen (FIN-BMW), Fabien Parchard (FRA- Kawasaki) and Raúl
The Kawasaki Z Cup returns to one of its favourite circuits after a break of
two months. Javier Valera (SPA), Joan Colomina (SPA) and José Jimenez (SPA),
the top three in the results table, will have their work cut out to hold off
the challenge from other riders.

11:00 Moto3 (16 laps)
12:00 Superbike (17 laps)
