New champions, new winners: JuniorGP™ makes history in Valencia

The 25th season of champion-making ended with new names making history at the Ricardo Tormo circuit

In a day full of records, the 2022 Finetwork FIM JuniorGP™ World Championship came to a dramatic close at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo in Valencia, Spain. While the two titles were decided in the preliminary rounds of the JuniorGP™ and the European Moto2™ Championship, the Hawkers European Talent Cup and Stock Moto2™ European Championship saw the final showdowns. Two new race winners took home JuniorGP™ honors: David Salvador (Laglisse Academy) and David Almanza (Finetwork Mir Racing Team), while Lukas Tulovic (Liqui Moly Intact GP Junior Team) and Casey O’Gorman (VisionTrack Academy Racing). on top in Moto2™ ECh and Hawkers ETC.

The final stage of the JuniorGP™ season hosted two races, and race 1 was superb. Pole sitter Colin Weyer (Team AGR) was hoping to claim his third pole in 2022, but he had a lot of company from the start. José Antonio Rueda (Team Estrella Galicia 0.0), David Alonso (Aspar Junior Team), Facunda Lambias (Team Estrella Galicia 0.0), David Salvador and Harrison Voight (SIC 58) chased the Dutchman in the early stages, while from the seventh row, due to the penalties, Filippo Farioli (Aspar Junior Team) and David Almanza went through the order to the leading group. However, in the closing stages Lambias crashed out at Turn 2, only to be followed a few laps later by Almanza at the same turn – Almanza made a sharp move but pulled away. A four-way battle on the final lap saw Salvador move from third to first with a bold move into the final corner. Alonso tried the same, but made the mistake of tagging Salvador before taking off, costing Rueda valuable time. On the run to the line, Salvador held on for one of the closest finishes of all time, edging out Weier by 0.002s, with Farioli in third.

Race 2 was also dramatic from the start with a battle between Veijer and Rueda, including an early race collision at Turn 3, although both remained upright. Luca Lunetto (AC Racing Team) was in the mix from the start, with the familiar faces of Farioli, Almanz, Voight and Alberto Ferrandez (Finetwork Mir Racing Team) at the front of seven riders. There was a big drama in the final third of the race when Lunetta and Weier collided on the exit of Turn 1 in a converging line, leaving Weier on the floor. However, two laps later an oil spill from the rider below meant that Turn 2 was slippery, trapping a number of riders, including race leader Almanz. However, the red flag was shown and due to Almanza completing the previous lap, he took the win ahead of Farioli and teammate Ferandez. Rueda already had the title, but Salvador held on to second place ahead of Farioli.

In the Moto2™ ECh category, it was a great performance from Lukas Tulovic; the German rider, already a champion and moving to the Moto2™ World Championship in 2023, was set to finish third on the grid but dropped to fifth at the start. He soon moved ahead of Jerez Ruiz (FAU55 TEY Racing) and Roberto Garcia (Cardoso Racing) for third, before finding himself behind Sena Agius (Promoracing) and Alex Eskrigo (Yamaha Philippines Stylobike Racing Team). Tulovic passed them both over the final six laps, with Eskrig chasing Tulovic as he beat Agius, but to no avail as the German took his seventh win of 2022, finishing in the top two at every race during a memorable Championship campaign. Behind him in the standings, Agius was second in Australia, while Spanish rider Eskrig finished third. Consistency was key in the Stock class as Daniel Muñoz (SP57 Racing Team) won again but Marco Tapia (Easyrace Team) took the title.

It was a momentous day at Hawkers ETC as history was once again being made. With just three points between them, Guido Pini (AC Racing Team) started second, while Joel Esteban (Aspar Junior Team) was three points behind in the title race from fifth. In a long battle that saw them switch places and trade paint, they battled in a leading pack that included Casey O’Gorman (VisionTrack Racing Team), defending champion Maximo Martinez (Team Honda Laglisse), Jesus Rios (MRE Talent). ), Brian Uriarte (Team Estrella Galicia 0,0) and teammate Rico Salmello battle it out. However, with a vital stretch to go, Pinney took the perfect position to claim the crown from P2 as O’Gorman took the win, while a dejected Esteban took third, missing out on the title by seven points. Ireland’s O’Gorman finished third overall behind Esteban and champion Pini, the first Italian champion in his class.
