The 2019 Hawkers Cup already has its first "poleman" of the 2019 season: Jesús Torres. He was the fastest yesterday and will start from the top of the grid today after a tight dispute with the winner of last season, Alberto Ferrández, who will start second. The circuit of Albacete will crown today the first winner of the course in the Hawkers Cup, with Torres as the main favorite after his good record yesterday: 1: 48.728. More than two tenths ahead of Alberto Ferrández, his main opponent to the triumph. Torres was the runner-up of last season with three victories and a total of 8 podiums, finishing 19 points behind the winner, Ferrández. Both have started with force the third edition of the cup, disputing the "pole", which has ended up achieving Torres. David Garcia Almansa, who got the bike from Corse Factory to compete the whole season in the selection tests, will complete the first row. The Hawkers Cup has more and more nationalities and the second row will be opened by the Uruguayan Eitan Gabriel, accompanied by Beñat Fernández and Miguel Bernal, who repeat participation this year. The Hawkers Cup pilots dodged the rain yesterday on a day when the weather forecasts were quite bad. In the first timed all came out with rain tires, since the track was still wet, but many pilots could change to "slicks" in the middle of the session. The second qualifying session was already played with the track completely dry and the participants were able to get the most out of their mounts. The rain I hope to end the day to make an appearance with strength in the Albacete circuit. The races are held today, in two races of nine laps each, which will decide the first two podiums of the 2019 season of the Hawkers Cup , which is already underway.
