Alex Escrig (Yamaha Philippines Stylobike Racing Team) Finish Second Place in the Moto2 European Championship, Valencia.
NHK Helmet – The 2022 season of the Moto2 European Championship and European Talent Cup came to an end with the final round at the Ricardo Tormo Circuit.

In the Moto2™ ECh category, it was a fine display by Lukas Tulovic; the German rider, already crowned Champion and with a move to Moto2™ World Championship action in 2023, had to come from third on the grid but off the start, dropped to fifth place. He soon picked off Yeraz Ruiz (FAU55 TEY Racing) and Roberto Garcia (Cardoso Racing) to go third, before sitting behind Senna Agius (Promoracing) and Alex Escrig (Yamaha Philippines Stylobike Racing Team). Tulovic got ahead of them both in the final six laps, with Escrig chasing Tulovic once he cleared Agius but to no avail, as the German taking a seventh win of 2022, finishing inside the top two in every race throughout a memorable Championship campaign. Behind him in the standings, Agius was a proud second for Australia whilst Spanish rider Escrig took third. Consistency was key in the Stock class, as Daniel Muñoz (SP57 Racing Team) won again, but Marco Tapia (Easyrace Team) took the title.
Incredible Podium for Alex Escrig, Second Place in Valencia.
Alonso Lopez finish second place in Malaysian GP
NHK Helmet – At the Sepang International Circuit the Beta Tools SpeedUp team took the fifth podium of the season with another superlative race of Alonso López who climbed to the second step of the Malaysian podium. Aldeguer finished his first Malaysian Grand Prix in top ten.
He is still on the podium, Alonso López and he did so managing very well a race that on paper seemed more complicated than usual for him and his Boscoscuro bike. From tenth position on the grid to third after a few corners from the start, as always Alonso made no mistake, recovering 7 positions. Bagarre with Gonzalez in the middle of the race in which he went in third position and a little from the end, with Ogura out of the game, he passed second the finish line, sealing his incredible fifth podium.

A superb start also for Aldeguer who jumped from sixteenth position to p7. The Beta Tools SpeedUp rider, despite the difficulties encountered during the whole weekend, was able to manage his race well by crossing for the first time the Malaysian finish line in tenth position.
ALONSO LÓPEZ #21: 2nd
“Really happy for this podium, the third in the last four races! My bike is fine, but maybe today wasn’t the best day of both and I did what I could. At the beginning it was really impossible to keep pace with Ai and Tony because they were really too fast, but I think I managed the race very well by taking some risks but getting straight to the goal. I thank the team for the excellent work we are doing together, see you in Valencia!”.

José Antonio Rueda, FIM JuniorGP™ World Champion
- The Andalusian driver mathematically took the title at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli after crossing the checkered flag second.
- His teammate Ángel Piqueras also got on the podium, in third position, after completing one of his best races of the year.
- “With this world title we have reached the best moment of recent years. And I am sure that we are going to continue along this line thanks to the support of Estrella Galicia 0,0, Motul and the rest of the sponsors”, says Jaime Serrano, CEO of the team.
At just 16 years old and after a season as a true leader, scoring points in each and every one of the races held to date, José Antonio Rueda was proclaimed world champion of the FIM JuniorGP™ with one more podium in his account, the eighth of the year. A more than deserved result for the rider from Los Palacios and Villafranca (Seville), who at the famous Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli shared the podium with his teammate Ángel Piqueras, third, in a weekend to frame and celebrate in the Team Galician Star 0.0. After the summer break, the San Marino Grand Prix was the scene of the sixth round of the season, where the JuniorGP™ riders shared the spotlight with those of the MotoGP™ World Championship. It was Rueda’s first match point to win the title, and he left no room for doubt.
The Andalusian, who started from the front row of the grid together with his teammate Piqueras, went out to win and quickly took the lead, with the intention of setting the tone for the race as he has done so many times this season. However, this time, a compact group of six pilots gave him no respite. The dance of positions and changes of leader left a very exciting race that was not resolved until the last lap, when Filippo Farioli took the victory ahead of José Antonio Rueda, a result that crowned him with the world title of the category.
The also Team Estrella Galicia 0,0 rider, Ángel Piqueras, completed the podium in Misano, after serving a Long Lap Penalty with four laps to go and coming back to the third final position. One of the best races of the season for the Valencian driver, who remains fifth in the general classification, just eleven points behind the runner-up, which David Salvador currently occupies. For his part, the third member of the Spanish team, the Uruguayan Facundo Llambías, finished in 11th position, in what was only the second race after his ulna injury.
“We have worked very hard all season to be able to win the title and I am very happy for all the efforts of my team. It has been an incredible day, everything has gone well and I am very excited. I dedicate this title to Hugo Millán”, explained Rueda a few minutes after putting his name on the list of winners of the category. A trophy that the Sevillian rider received in the highest drawer from the hands of the 2021 MotoGP™ world champion, Fabio Quartararo. Precisely, the French rider was the last FIM CEV champion with Estrella Galicia 0.0 and Monlau in 2014.
How could it be otherwise, joy took over the Team Estrella Galicia 0.0 box, after reaping the title as a result of many months of collective work. “The resumption of the championship could not have gone better. We are very satisfied and proud with this world title won by José Antonio Rueda. He has had a spectacular year, getting on the podium in practically all the races and with some very solid victories, which confirms the great work of the whole team. Thanks to all the members and the support of Estrella Galicia 0,0, Motul and all the sponsors, we have reached the best moment in recent years. And I am sure that we are going to continue in this line”, affirms Jaime Serrano, CEO of the team.
A tone similar to that shown by Kev Coghlan, Team Manager: “This title is very important for the team. The changes in recent years have been very positive and we are on the right track. Without a doubt, this title will open many doors for Rueda, since he has shown that he is not just any rider. I also want to highlight the race of Piqueras, who went from less to more and made an incredible comeback in the last laps after serving the penalty, as well as that of Facundo Llambías, who has regained his confidence from the beginning of the year. The entire Estrella Galicia 0.0 Team has worked very hard during the year, especially in winter, to achieve these results”.
Regarding the Malaysian team SIC Racing, to which Monlau Motul Technical School offers technical support, Syarifuddin Azman was once again in the fight for the top positions, and managed to finish in sixth position. After the Misano test, the FIM JuniorGP™ faces the last two appointments on the calendar, both in Spanish territory. The most immediate, at MotorLand Aragón, on October 9, where the Estrella Galicia 0.0 Team will be present at the JuniorGP™ race and at the two European Talent Cup races.

ALONSO LÓPEZ #21: 1st
“I have no words to express what I felt! In the last ten laps I had goosebumps, I didn’t believe it and I tried to keep my concentration steady so as not to make mistakes. Honestly, I didn’t know I had this pace because with the hard tire it wasn’t easy to set the time. I’m really happy for Luca who is developing a sensational bike with so much passion and I want to thank my family and those who support me once again because I wouldn’t be here without them!”.
