Heras wins Spanish 1/8th finale as Ortega takes title

The final round of the Spanish 1/8th IC Track National Championship was held at the Club Carsol track in Elche in the south of Valencia. Carlos Peracho Heras was the man to beat and he would take the pole position for the A-main event. Joining him was Adrián Santeiro who won the Super Pole race that was held under rainy conditions. The changing weather was also a key factor in the semi-finals with the right tyre choice being crucial to secure a ticket for the main event. For the sake of excitement all championship favourites, Sergio Montesinos, Rubén Olivares, Victor González and Guillermo Pérez, made their way into the main, so the championship would go down to the wire. From the tone Peracho Heras and Olivares Munoz separated from the field despite the two being in a wheel-to-wheel battle. The pit crew of Carlos showed some very swift work during the main and in the end he was able to walk away with the win in front of Vicente Eres Ramos. Further down the field it were Sergio Montesinos Ortega and Guillermo Pérez who had a long battle for 3rd position, and in the end the latter took the final podium spot by only a tenth of a second. For Sergio Ortega the 4th place was enough to be crowned new Spanish Champion 2017.
