The Wil Sport European Junior Cup, powered by Honda, will act out the final chapter of its history this weekend, as the series enters its last round at ‘Circuito de Jerez’ in southern Spain. Two races, one on Saturday and the other on Sunday, will decide the winner of the 2016 and last edition of the championship, with four riders still mathematically in contention for the ultimate prize.
Leading the way after six rounds is Mika Perez (Granshagen Racing Team), who currently holds a 25-point margin over his main challenger Paolo Grassia (Chiodo Moto Racing) – with 50 points still up for grabs. Last time out in Magny-Cours, Grassia was able to narrow the gap to the top by 12 points by winning the first EJC race of his career. On paper, Perez can win the title after race one should he finish ahead of his rival.
Despite being still within title range, Dorian Laville (Team Laville Mi&Do) and Alfonso Coppola (Chiodo Moto Racing) have slimmer chances to lift the winner’s trophy. Race one will get underway on Saturday at 15:10 local time (GMT +2), with the final encounter of the season scheduled at 15:15 the following day.
