Infoprensa FIM CEV Repsol 2021/20: Qualifying complete in Barcelona as Round 3 is ready to roll

12/06/2021

Round 3 of the FIM CEV Repsol Championship is all set for the green light tomorrow as qualifying day comes to a close!

The action was hotter than ever as all three classes took to the Circuit de Barcelona - Catalunya in scorching temperatures as they all battled for pole position on Saturday! In the end it would be Mario Aji (Astra Honda Racing) that would take pole position in the FIM Moto3™ Junior World Championship. In Moto2™ European Championship, there was a first-time polesitter of the season in Boscoscuro Talent Team-Ciatti's Fermin Aldeguer and in Hawkers European Talent Cup it was Hugo Millan (Cuna de Campeones) that was fastest of all.

It was another closely contested qualifying in the FIM Moto3™ JWCh. But in the end it was a surprise polesitter with Mario Aji posting the fastest time, just under two tenths ahead of second place Jose Julian Garcia (SIC58 Squadra Corse) with both riders posting their fastest time in QP1 earlier in the day. That was the theme for many riders as the hot sunshine in the afternoon lead to slightly greasy track conditions during QP2. Takuma Matsuyama (Asia Talent Team) lines up 3rd, still on a high after picking up his first-ever podium last time out in Valencia.

The second row of the grid is where you'll find the top three in the Championship, but in a slightly different order. Ivan Ortola (Team MTA) grabbed fourth, less than half a tenth ahead of Championship Leader Daniel Holgado (Aspar Junior Team). Diogo Moreira (Team Estrella Galicia 0,0) lines up 6th just ahead of teammate Jose Antonio Rueda (Team Estrella Galicia 0,0) while Joel Kelso (AGR Team) and David Salvador (TM Factory Racing Team) complete the top nine.

It was a one-sided tale in Moto2™ ECh as the dominant force of the season, Fermin Aldeguer, tightened his grip on the series to take his first pole position of the season by 0.737s from Boscoscuro Talent Team-Ciatti teammate, Alonso Lopez. While Aldeguer has a clear advantage at the front, Lopez can't be so relaxed, with Lukas Tulovic (Liqui Moly Intact SIC Racing Team) qualifying in third just a tenth behind the young Spaniard.

After picking up his first pole position last time out in Valencia, Hugo Millan was after more and more is what he got! His second pole position in a row in the HETC and the best possible way to start tomorrow's race! Xabi Zurutuza (Cuna de Campeones) qualifies second for his best qualifying of the year so far and it's a second front row start in a row for Maximo Martinez (Team Honda Laglisse) as he'll line up as the third rider on the front row of the grid!
