Marino Villar Competes in the First Round of the Spanish Championship

Marbella-based pilot Marino Villar participated in the first round of the Spanish Elite Championship (MX1, MX2, and 125 cc) over the weekend. The event took place at the Cerro Negro circuit in Talavera de la Reina. Despite being involved in several crashes, the young Marbella pilot performed at a high level, confirming his recovery and readiness to compete against Spain’s best.

Marino Villar Begins the Season at the Spanish Elite Championship

The season for Marino Villar kicked off this weekend with his participation in the Spanish Elite Championship (MX1, MX2, and 125 cc). The first round was held at one of Spain’s most emblematic circuits, the Cerro Negro in Talavera de la Reina. The young Marbella pilot attended the event with high motivation, marking his return to a national competition after a severe injury in 2023 that kept him off the tracks for several months.

Marino Villar’s Performance in the First Round

In a grid with almost fifty pilots, Villar did not have a good qualifying round, which meant he had to start from the 19th position. As is typical for the Marbella pilot, his start in the first round was brilliant, placing ninth at the start and even running in seventh position. However, a mistake relegated him to eleventh place. In the penultimate lap, while running ninth, he tried to gain a position but fell again, finishing in 13th place. Despite the final position, Villar’s performance was excellent, confirming his status as a pilot on par with Spain’s best and receiving congratulations from other pilots.

Marino Villar’s Second Round Experience

The second round was even more accident-prone with several crashes at the head of the race. Marino again had a good start, climbing seven positions, but the race was a roller coaster of crashes and accidents, moving from 12th place to 23rd, and finally finishing in 16th place, managing to overtake a Spanish champion right at the finish line. The Marbella pilot is now in 16th position overall with 13 points in a race that was very important to him. Especially being able to compete against top-15 rivals who were already familiar with the circuit and had many more training hours than Villar.

Next Stop for Marino Villar

The next event for the talented Marbella pilot will be next weekend in Chiclana de la Frontera, which will be the first round of the Andalusian Championship.
