Last «Flamenco» for Intact junior riders in Valencia

A week after MotoGP’s emotional season finale, the stadium-like Valencia circuit also hosts FIM CEV Series for its final race this weekend. 

Short-notice postponements were the cause of a three-month interruption to this year’s European Talent Cup and Moto2™ European Championship. The last meeting took place at the end of August in Jerez de la Frontera. The season’s finale itself has been post-boned by two weeks and will now take place as usual at the Valencia Grand Prix circuit. 

The German racing team's junior squad will not be at full strength going into the weekend not far from Spain's third-largest city because their two Malaysian riders «Juan» Sharul Sharil and Hakim Danish are in action at the same time at the recently completed Mandalika International Street Circuit on the Indonesian island of Lombok, where the season-ending event of the Asia Talent Cup is being held. A talented replacement has been signed in the form of young Italian rider Jordan Batucca. Batucca competed in the Northern Talent Cup this year and not only attracted attention with a race win in Austria, while Phillip Tonn from Mattstedt will try to bring his season, which was marked by ups and downs, to a conciliatory close. 

In Moto2 European Championship, the team based in Memmingen in the Allgäu region is fighting for third place overall in the final race of the season. Lukas Tulovic has a 17-point gap in the points table over Spaniard Xavier Cardelus, from whom, however, Tulovic's teammate Adam Norrodin from Malaysia would like to snatch fourth place in the overall standings. 

On race day, as usual, there will be a live stream via the series' YouTube channel.
