Motorcycle News (UK) - - Sport -

Small-ca­pac­ity rac­ing his­tory was made at Aragon when the first round of the new Worldssp300 FIM World Cham­pi­onship burst into life – com­plete with a two-part Su­per­pole.

It fea­tures ma­chines from Yamaha (R3), Kawasaki (Ninja 300) and Honda (CBR500R) and gen­er­ally young rid­ers, some only 15-years old. Revs are ad­justed for each man­u­fac­turer to keep it fair and KTM are join­ing soon.

Or­gan­is­ers Dorna say it’s a low­bud­get way to get into world ti­tle rac­ing and al­ready has pro­grammes in place in some coun­tries to help do­mes­tic tal­ent onto the world stage.

Qual­i­fy­ing fea­tured three dif­fer­ent ma­chines in the top three places, and the race re­sult saw Scott Der­oue (MTM HS Kawasaki) win from Daniel Valle (Hal­courier Rac­ing Yamaha) and Mika Perez (WILSPORT Race­day Honda) – again three dif­fer­ent ma­chines in the top three places. The podium rid­ers were cov­ered by just 0.127 sec­onds.

Der­oue is a star in the mak­ing
