Three Different Nationalities on the Front Row for R7 SuperFinale

Three Different Nationalities on the Front Row for R7 SuperFinale

The second ever R7 SuperFinale will take place this weekend in Aragon as riders from all over the world battle it out for glory and a brand new R7, and Friday’s qualifying action certainly had an international flavour as three different nationalities filled the front row.

The 27 riders who make up the field this weekend were the first to take to the Motorland Aragon circuit on Friday morning and home rider Eric Molina, who took part in last year’s inaugural R7 SuperFinale, got off to a flying start by setting the fastest time in FP1. He was closely followed by compatriot Oscar San Emeterio Lezcano, while Germany’s Valentin Folger set the third fastest time. Italy’s Davide Conte and another Spanish rider, Jorge Arroyo Caro, completed the Top 5.

With the riders much more used to the layout and feel of the track the times became closer for the afternoon’s 30-minute SuperPole session, and this allowed new names to shine on the timesheets. However, Molina was once again the rider to beat, setting a 2’07.080 to claim pole position for Saturday’s races. Norway’s Marius Ripel snatched the second spot on the grid, while Conte completed the front row. These top three riders were covered by less than half a second.

The two races will take place on Saturday at 11:45 and 16:15 CET.

Pole Position

Eric Molina

The Superpole was difficult because of the rear tyre wear after the morning’s session; in Free Practice 1 I already saw that the tyre was pretty used, so I was a little worried for the SuperPole. But I gave it my best shot and I didn’t imagine I’d get such a good qualifying time, so tomorrow I will go for the win in both races.
