European Moto2 at Albacete (Spain)

A new FIM CEV Repsol season got under way this weekend at the Circuito de Albacete. After a few days of bad weather the sun finally came out allowing 11,000 spectators to enjoy the intense racing on display.
In the Moto2 European Championship, World Championship rider Hafizh Syahrin (Petronas Raceline, in the photo) fulfilled pre-race predictions by leading from start to finish. Behind the Malaysian rider came Héctor Garzó (Team Wimu CNS), taking a well-deserved podium in his debut in the category. Augusto Fernández (Easyrace Moto2 Team) ended up in third position in his debut on the Suter after racing last season with Tech3. Augusto Fernández ended up snatching the third position on the last lap from defending champion Steven Odendaal (NTS Sportscode T. Pro), who finished fourth ahead of Eric Granado (Promoracing). The Brazilian rider, like Dimas Ekky (Astra Honda), faded halfway through the race and finished off the podium. The winner of the race was also presented with the Repsol free fuel card.
The next round  will take place at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya on June 18.
