This weekend, the famous motor racing circuit of Jerez, sees the return for the first round of the CEV Buckler National motorcycling Championship. A total of 22 nationalities will be representing their countries at the first meeting of the season, with a high number of the riders coming from other continents. The lineup of riders from countries, outside of the European border, highlights that the CEV Buckler competition is recognized and respected as a high level competition.
After winning the 2011 CEV Buckler series, Moto2 rider Jordi Torres will return to defend his title. 125GP champion Alex Rins and Stock Extreme champion Iván Silva, will not be racing in this competition after they have both proved that they have reached a high enough standard to make a step up onto the world stage of MotoGPTM. Rins has secured a seat with Estrella Galicia 0’0 in the debut of the new Moto3 category and Silva will ride for the newly formed CRT series with Avintia Racing on a BQR-FTR machine.
