Alvaro Diaz (Valencia, 2003), the last champion of the SuperSport 300 category of the Superbike World Championship, will make the leap in 2023 to the 600 class of the derivatives of the series. A relentless rise in a victorious path that began with the Spanish ESBK junior championship in 2021 with his team Arco Motor University Teamdirected by Antonio Molina. “We are a team that all came from engineering students at the Polytechnic and we want to continue collaborating with talented pilots. We have drivers in the championship Spain and Álvaro is our flagship. Now for this jump we have closed a collaboration at a technical and logistical level, sharing information and material, with the team yartofficial of yamaha in it world resistance and we are very excited to give the best weapons to AlvaroMolina explains.

The pilot, for his part, arrives with the 300 title and full of ambition for a championship that is not very conducive to the Spanish, without any world champion since he was born in 1999 and with only six victories (three of Joan Lascorztwo of Manuel Gonzalez and one of Pere Riba) and two second places overall (David Solomon 2011 and Manel González 2021) for best baggage. Nothing to do with the domain of ours in SSP300, with five champions (Marc Garcia, Ana Carrasco, Manu Gonzalez, and Adrian Huertas. and his own Diaz) in six years.

This 2023 I am very excited and excited, training to the fullest. There is a lot of difference with the gear at 600, when it comes to moving the weights, the lines… The jump is considerable but I am a tall rider and the 300 was too small for me. I look pretty strong. Now we have to learn from scratch and gradually improve. But I think I’m going to adapt very well to the category. We have already done some test or other and it has gone quite well ”, he warns.
