Saturday: Torres and Herrera shine in SBK and SBK Women
One of the protagonists during free practice days has been the cold. The low temperatures have made an appearance and have complicated the development of the teams’ work a bit. On Thursday it even rained and they couldn’t ride much. On Friday things got better and on Saturday, with the qualifying and the first races of the weekend, the sun has accompanied.
What has not changed has been the desire and the spectacle offered by everyone at each outing on the track. On the first day of competition, the grids were set up after each training session and we were able to find out the name of the winners of the first races.
On SBK, Jordi Torres dominated most of the timed training of the championship’s top flight but there were others such as Marc Alcoba, Roman Ramos or Carmelo Morales who fought to the end for pole position. Finally, with a beautiful battle between Torres and Alcoba and with time fulfilled, that of the Team Honda Laglisse was made with the The Fastest Rider REDD Silkolene Badge.

During the first laps, the Briton was leading, but always with one eye behind controlling Gutiérrez, who also wanted to win. In the fifth lap, unfortunately for his interests, Smith went to the ground, so the Spaniard inherited the first. Of course, with Gómez close to him. So much so that the Poli-Sport Racing He overcame it, although his joy did not last long, since he fell to the ground. Aleix Viu Y David sanchisComing from behind, they finished second and third, respectively.

David Real dominated the chrono of PreMoto3 with a steady hand, while Xabi Zurutuza Y Marco Garcia they had to settle for finishing second and third, respectively.
In the race, a group of five drivers rolled in the lead fighting for the podium. Real tried to escape just as he did in Sherry, but the others did not make it easy for him. In fact, Joel esteban, Zurutuza and Hugo Marin They got to overtake him to shoot, but Real had not yet said his last word and, after passing Marín and Zurutuza in the last lap, he did the same with Esteban to finish winning. Zurutuza, third.

Sunday: Navarra elevates the first Champions of 2020
This weekend the pilots of the ESBK 2020 have faced an extra challenge and that is that in addition to the technical complexity of the Navarra Circuit they had to work with very low ambient and track temperatures. In fact, at the best point of the day, the asphalt temperature has reached 16ºC, almost 40ºC below the date that was held on this same track to open the championship. And today the same cold trend has remained as yesterday.
Carmelo Morales has commanded the group since the beginning of the career of SBK, being Marc Alcoba the one who has come closest to him, always fighting to win. Jordi Torres Y Roman Ramos they have been third and fourth, respectively, seeing them by that last step of honor.
But in the absence of 7 laps the one of the Team Honda Laglisse has gone to the ground staying out of the game. Thus, that of Kawasaki has made third and maintains the Peris Leader Badge arriving to Sherry like the man to beat.
Morales won the race but went out onto the green on the last lap being sanctioned with a place, so Alcoba finally climbed to the first step of the podium. Morales and Ramos, as we said, have flanked him.
On Open1000, have been in the photo of winners today the same ones from yesterday: Ivo Lopes, Joan Zamorano Y Eric Molina.
The race of Supersport It has been contested over 11 laps, since in the previous one the red flag was raised due to a crash in which four riders were involved. Oscar Gutierrez, the leader, had everything to face to take the title once again and he has done it in the best possible way: winning.
As the laps went by, he distanced himself from his most immediate rival, Aleix Viu. David sanchis, who has fought to the end with the Andotrans Team Torrentó for the championship, he was third.
With this victory Gutiérrez proclaims himself, in the absence of the two rounds of Sherry, Champion of Spain SSP 2020.

In the race of SBK Junior there have been five drivers in the fight for victory during the opening laps: Iker Garcia, Daniel Mogeda, Eric Fernandez, Angel Heredia Y Francesc Perez. The overtaking has been the dominant note at the beginning, but finally García, Fernández and Heredia have remained as the protagonists.
The first one was very strong, but a penalty for jumping the track limits more than allowed has snatched the first position, leaving it on a plate to Fernández. Heredia has finished second and Javier Corral third.
In the Kawasaki Ninja Spirit Trophy Fernández, Heredia and García have risen to the drawer, while in the R3 Yamaha bLU cRU Cup Corral have done it, Carlos Gimenez Y Juan Antonio Conesa in that order.
Carla Scolds has gone up to collect the check from the REDD Challenge GS that accredits the Speed racing as the best team of SBK Junior from Navarre.
On Moto4, there was a nice fight between the man who started from pole, Maximum Martinez, Y Alex Longarela who have joined Pol Solà. The one with Gasss Racing has led almost every lap, but has also been sanctioned with a Long Lap Penalty for exceeding the track limits repeatedly. Thus, Solà has placed first with Longarela second. With two laps to go, Longarela has overtaken Solà, but has seen how the School Team Monlau Repsol he gave it back. When everything seemed to indicate that things would end this way, both have gone to the ground in the last corner before entering the finish line. Thus, Brian Uriarte has been the one who in the end has risen with the triumph, followed by Rico Salmela and of Amanuel David Brinton.

But there were still four laps to go and with many overtaking, Esteban won, Zurutuza was second and Carlos Torrecillas placeholder image third.
