European Junior Cup action to resume in UK

Posted on


The third round of the 2016 WIL Sport European Junior Cup, powered by Honda, is set to get underway this afternoon at the Donington Park Circuit in central England, with great anticipation for what will surely be another exciting battle for honours in the entry level series of WorldSBK.

One and half months ago, Hannes Soomer claimed his first-ever European Junior Cup win at the TT Circuit Assen. The Estonian rider was able to pull away onboard his Honda CBR650F at halfway distance to cross the finishing line with a three-second gap over France’s Dorian Laville (Team Laville Mi&Do) and Spain’s Mika Perez (Granshagen Racing Team), who completed the podium in second and third, respectively. Soomer is currently leading the standings, although with the same number of points as Perez (36).

Opening race winner at Aragón, Harun Cabuk (KNN54 – TMF) and Giuseppe De Gruttola (SK-Racing Team) will be looking for redemption, with other young riders expected to get in the mix for honours. Reigning Champion in the FIM Europe Women’s Cup Champion Avalon Biddle (Avalon Biddle Racing) has a healthy lead in that class this season after almost clinching a top 10 overall finish in the Netherlands.

Donington Park’s European Junior Cup race (scheduled at 10:30 GMT+1 on Sunday 26th May) can be watched live on
