Salmela, Veijer take Rookies Cup victories in Aragon

Every racing thrill imaginable was packed into 15 laps of Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup action at Aragón with the top 4 split by 6 hundredths of a second at the finish. Cup leader José Rueda led fellow Spaniard Màx Quiles towards the line but both were passed in the final metres by 14-year-old Fin Rico Salmela who took the win. A single second covered the pack of KTM RC 250 Rs down to P9. A sensational victory for lanky Dutchman Collin Veijer in the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup Race 2 at Aragón. Crucially, points leader José Rueda, the 16-year-old Spaniard, flashed across the line 6th, just 0.183 seconds behind Veijer. It was another fabulous race, half a second covered the top 9, 3 seconds the top 13.
