Superprestigio III Results 2015

The Americans have done it again! America’s Dirt Track superstar Brad Baker beat two-time MotoGP Champion Marc Marquez during the Superprestigio III held Saturday in Barcelona, Spain.

Taking the final podium position ahead of 8,700 fans was the defending AMA Pro Flat Track Grand National Champion Jared Mees.

This was Baker’s third Superprestigio win – he took the debut race in January 2014, but Marquez snapped back at Superprestigio II held in December 2014, securing the win ahead of Mees

Brad Baker says: “It’s been incredible, I’ve been in Barcelona for so many days that I feel like this city is my second home! I get along so well with everyone here, it’s fantastic. It’s been a crazy year for me, one year ago I was in the hospital with a broken shoulder, and now here I’m with a new victory! The SuperFinal has been brutal! Mentally it has been very demanding; I did look back only once. Every time I heard the crowd louder I knew Marc was coming closer! I want to thank RPM Racing for all their support and help throughout these days!”

America 2 – Spain 1. That’s how the already iconic Barcelona Superprestigio is playing out. But Marquez will surely seek revenge in the next Superprestigio.

Marc Márquez says: “Thanks to the organisers for putting such a great event together, every year is getting bigger. I wasn’t my best start, I regain some space at the beginning, but it wasn’t an easy task to overtake Brad! All in all is a great race, and it’s fantastic to be in the podium with these two amazing riders, looking forward to come back next year!”

As for Jared Mees, he says: “I had great time in Barcelona, maybe this race was not my best, the start wasn’t great and that conditioned my result. I managed to step to the third position, getting closer but I could not get in the same pace as Marc and Brad, both were extremely fast today!”

It wasn’t only these heros competing, though; also in the Superprestigio III field were Alex Rins, Dani Ribalta, Xavi Vierge, Masatoshi Ohmori and Fredrik Lindgren.

AMA Pro Racing says the Superprestigio III had its memorable moments. At the start – crucial in dirt track – Baker took the advantage over the other riders; an advantage that Marquez reduced over the 16 laps as the Spaniard looked to attack in the closing stages. The rider from Cervera almost went past at the last corner, but was forced to settle for second place, just one tenth of a second behind Baker. Mees was left to make up for a lackluster start and finished the race in third position, completing an exclusive podium, AMA Pro Racing reports.
