De Gea Suzuki Wraps up Spanish Title

BQR Suzuki's David de Gea won the 2007 Formula Extreme class of CEV "Campeonato de España de Velocidad" at Sunday's sixth round of seven in Valencia as Suzuki GSX-R1000s swept the first three places - and dominated the entire series.

The Murcian rider, defending his two titles in a row and his fourth in five years, won the race while the main competitor Carmelo Morales (Yamaha) finished seventh.

Suzuki team mate Javier Sardá finished second and Sergio Fuertes from the Motorrad Suzuki Team completed a Suzuki podium.

De Gea and the BQR Suzuki GSX-R1000 have won three of the six CEV Formula Extreme races this year and finished second and third in the remaining rounds.David de Gea, that was a perfect weekend. I was the faster in practice, warm-up and in the race I recorded the fastest lap. I'm very happy because I leave the CEV as a champion. This is my fourth title in five years and I am grateful to my family, Raúl, the team, Dunlop and all who have supported me during these years.

This year was a challenge as the team changed brand to Suzuki, but I believe we have worked well, we developed the machine quickly and we have been fast. When we arrived at the circuits, all were new, but thanks to the effort of everybody; we were at the top in all the races and won our third championship in a row. Next year I will race the Supersport World Championship; a new challenge for me but think I can do it well.
