Road Racer’s Adventures: ZX10 Cup, Jerez

The final round of the Spanish national ZX10 Kawasaki Cup series at Jerez, saw Mountain Course regular Raul Torras Martinez end his 2020 racing campaign in highly productive fashion.

runner-up in this year’s ZX10 Cup series, Masters class title winner Torras Martinez, concluded 2020 competition with victory within yesterday’s ZX10 machinery encounter at the world famous Jerez circuit.

Torras Martinez who is hoping to return to the North West 200, Macau Grand Prix and TT Races in 2021, competing for the newly formed Toll Racing team, stated via Facebook about a successful season’s conclusion:

“Lot’s of highs and lows due the worldwide situation, but we managed to keep going!!! Already working for 2021!!!

Thank you very much team, sponsors, family, fans. Without you it wouldn’t be possible!!!”

Widely regarded as Spain’s leading real road racer of the past decade, Torras Martinez’s proficient roads CV includes six top 30 TT finishes, North West 200 top 20 finishes and a top six finish from the Newcomers A Manx Grand Prix of 2016.

Whilst not able to take in roads action this year, the ZX10 Cup Masters Champion showed his gaming pedigree in the inaugural Virtual TT, finishing overall third alongside Aaron Hislop.

Looking forward to competition with new suitors Toll Racing, Torras Martinez like 100’s of competitors, teams, marshals is keeping the positive vibes up ahead of next season, which fingers crossed includes more than a touch of International roads action.
