RGMMC COTF, Zuera - Nakamura wins in Senior, Matveev victorious in Junior

Columns: Races
On Sunday in Zuera, it was Kean Nakamura-Berta and Dmitry Matveev who put the finishing touches on the second round and took the top step of the podium.

OK - Nakamura, victory and look towards a European Championship as a protagonist
The reigning OKJ World Champion took his first international victory of the season also in Senior. Kean Nakamura-Berta made the final of Zuera his own, fighting from the beginning to the end and staying in the pack of scrums until the final comeback. Four positions recovered from the start by the Japanese, author of a second half of the race in great style with a gap of more than one second to the first rival. After the fourth place in Portimao, in a fortnight, the Japanese rider could have his say in the European Championship (always in Zuera), reshuffling the cards. Second position for the Parolin spearhead in the Senior category, the Frenchman Enzo Deligny, probably even more on the ball than his rival for the victory with twelve positions recovered up to second place. Third Ean Eyckmans, still very competitive ahead of Joe Turney (poleman of the final) and Alex Powell, also leader but only in the first laps. 

OKJ - Matveev, again
Dmitry Matveev needed two laps to recover the situation after not perfect heats and Super Heat, moving from the seventh to the first place. The Russian of Koski Motorsport, after winning his first race in the European Championship seven days ago, repeated himself again, showing he is not a meteorite but one of the most interesting names of this 2022. There was a good battle with Nathan Tye, who took pole position and was then pursued by Matveev without losing contact with the first place, which was five tenths away at the end. With the third place of Anatoly Khavalkin, the new course of the International Junior was then almost completed compared to seven days ago, another great test also by the driver Parolin, who started and remained at the top of the standings. Surprise fourth place for one of the best outsiders of the weekend, Lenn Nijs, driven under the eyes of former champion Rick Dreezen, fifth Miguel Costa after leading the race for a few moments.
