Team Estrella Galicia 0.0 seeks to maintain progression in the FIM JuniorGP™ of Barcelona-Catalunya

  • With two races scheduled in JuniorGP™, the drivers will fight to achieve the team’s first victories of the season. 
  • The ETC race is a great opportunity to climb positions in the general classification, with three drivers in the top ten.
  • “With a little more luck we are convinced that more podiums and first victories will come immediately, and even more so on a circuit that the entire team has been waiting for,”  says Jaime Serrano, CEO of the team.

With a race every fifteen days, the FIM JuniorGP™ calendar gives no respite to Team Estrella Galicia 0,0, which this coming weekend will face the third round of the season on a very special track, the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya. 
After a single race in Estoril, the JuniorGP™ riders will have a double race in Montmeló and the opportunity, depending on the results, to get fully into the fight for the lead. At the moment, the drivers who are closest are Casey O’Gorman, eighth classified with 24 points, and Máximo Quiles, tenth with 17. The Irish driver presented a candidacy for victory in Italy, but bad fortune accompanied him in Portugal with a drop. A situation similar to that experienced by the Murcian, who has shown a good adaptation to the category. For his part, Facundo Llambías has performed at a high level in free and qualifying sessions, and he only needs to confirm it in the race. 

The Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya will host a single round of the European Talent Cup, in a category that is always very close and marked by alternatives and surprises. Jesús Torres is, so far, the best positioned driver in the general classification with fourth position and 45 points on his account.

Two more riders from Team Estrella Galicia 0.0 are in the Top 10: Fernando Bujosa, eighth with 25 points, and Pau Alsina, tenth with 19. Torres and Bujosa arrive with confidence and desire to repeat the podiums obtained in Estoril, as well like Alsina, who managed to compensate for a poor classification caused by a crash with a spectacular comeback in the race. In addition, Marianos Nikolis will also try to return to the top positions after suffering some problems in Portugal, while Enzo Bellón will seek to bring out all his talent in his second full weekend with the team.

“All the drivers are more than prepared to fight for the front positions, and we are convinced that, with a little more luck, more podiums and the first victories of the season will come immediately. The entire team is very motivated to achieve better results, and even more so in a circuit that is so eagerly awaited by all of us such as Barcelona-Catalunya, where we are going to receive our families and sponsors,”  says  Jaime Serrano , CEO of the team.

“In the first two JuniorGP™ rounds, the podium has eluded us, but without a doubt I think it is the result of bad luck. The four drivers are very talented and are ready to fight for pole positions. We hope they arrive in Montmeló because both the drivers and the entire team have worked intensely these days to achieve this,”  explains  Max Moro , Team Leader Project. 

“This year in the ETC, consistency is going to be highly rewarded, so this weekend is the perfect setting to have all our drivers as high as possible in the general classification. Torres and Bujosa already know what it is like to get on the podium and we hope to repeat it on Sunday with any of our drivers,”  he adds.

The action at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya will start on Thursday with free practice, which will be repeated on Friday. On Saturday it will be the turn of the qualifying session from 9:00 a.m. CEST. Once the starting grid has been decided, racing Sunday will begin with the ETC Last Chance at 9:15 a.m. The first JuniorGP™ race will take place at 11:00 a.m., scheduled for 15 laps, while the only ETC test will start at 1:00 p.m. with 14 laps to go. The second round of JuniorGP™ will be at 2:00 p.m. with 15 laps. The FIM JuniorGP™ show can be followed live through the DAZN platform, on its channel on Movistar+ and on RTVE.
