ADRIAN HUERTAS: NEW WORLD CHAMPION OF THE SSP 300
The 11th round of the Superbike World Championship itook place this weekend at the Portimao Circuit and this has been undoubtedly a hard Saturday for Spanish motorcycling to forget. Adrián Huertas won the Supersport300 title and thus joins Marc García, Ana Carrasco and Manu González who also obtained it in 2017, 2018 and 2019 respectively.
WHAT A SEASON
Adrián, who joined the MTM Kawasaki team for this 2021 season, has had an incredible year taking the crown from his teammate Jeffrey Buis and also having a good fight with Tom Booth-Amos. The Real Madrid driver did not miss the first opportunity he had and this Saturday he raised his hands to the sky to dedicate this victory to his friend Dean Berta Viñales, who is in everyone’s memory and heart.
Huertas has spectacular numbers and is that he has obtained seven podiums out of 15 races, also achieving five victories. No one escapes the fact that the SSP300 category is one of the most difficult because of the equality between its competitors and because everyone wants to achieve what Adrián has achieved today. After a season in which he was the most assiduous driver, today it was enough for him to put the icing on a cake that he prepares from the first race of the year.
Adrián climbed the Spanish Superbike championship standings where he finished third in PreMoto3 in 2017, only surpassed by Pedro Acosta and David Salvador. The next two years he competed in the Red Bull Rookies Cup and in 2020 he finished in the SSP300 World Championship where today he wrote his name in gold letters.
What else to say, Adrian. Huge congratulations on an amazing season. We wish you all the very best for your future.
