Ana Carrasco gets it done !

".....I wanted to dedicate this title to Luis Salom, we were good friends and the day we lost him I promised myself to dedicate my first title to him.....

.....Perez was a distraught second as Carrasco came over the line in 13th to create history by a single point

Emotional day for the SSP300 championship. With a few laps to go, any of three racers could have won. With three corners to go, either Carrasco or Perez could have won. Seeing Ana Carrasco's reactions go from sadness to joy on the cool down lap was very moving. That class really delivers. Congratulations Champ!

One more thing. Carrasco's championship will surely make a lot of mainstream media headlines, as it should, and hopefully act as a positive counter to all the recent Fenati coverage.

If Dovi had somehow been in Carrasco's position at the head of yesterday's race, his eventual championship cinching finish could not have destroyed me any more. I'm still a wreck ... and absurdly happy. " ... dedicate my first title ... ". How can you not love her?

Looks like BSB won the Redding sweepstakes.

MCN website says "BSB: Redding signs deal with Be Wiser Ducati for 2019"

So it looks like Yonny Hernandez, one of the few WSBK riders signed for 2019, was fired by Team Pedricini just before the Magny-Cours round in a spat over his hotel room.

Using Google Translate from Speedweek.com

Quote:
The rest of the story we know only from the mouth of team boss Lucio Pedercini: "Yonny has called me Wednesday evening at 23.15 clock and told me that he has no hotel room. He wanted to check in too late. I wanted to solve the problem, tried to book another hotel and got the confirmation. I gave Yonny the address and he was there at 0.15 and told me that no one was there. This is a four star hotel, I can not imagine that no one was there. He then tells me he's going back to Paris. "

And there are reports that PJ Jacobsen is out at Triple M Honda. Probably a huge relief for Jacobsen as the team owner had been bad mouthing PJ recently. Jacobsen's history in Daytona Sportbike, BSB Superstock, BSB Superbike and WSS proves he's lot better than a 16th place superbike rider.

Torres released from MV so he can concentrate on riding for Avintia in MotoGP.
