Cubero consolidates his leadership with an impressive victory in the Baylque Slalom.
The fifth test of Andalusian Slalom Championship 2019 He took us this weekend to the beautiful town of Bayarque, an enclave located in the Alto Almanzora Valley, in the province of Almería.
This second edition of his Slalom, organized by the Motor Club Balcón del Almanzora, has had a 900-meter long path, in which the pilots have had to get around as quickly as possible a multitude of cones that formed doors, roundabouts and zig-zags.
These obstacles are precisely those that make the Slalom a test where the power of the car goes to the background, giving priority to driving skills and speed of reactions. The pilot must know very well the mass balance and inertia of his car, and have good command of the handbrake. In addition, the Slalom is currently the most economical car test.
After the technical verifications of the vehicles in the church square, the pilots and some officers carried out the obligatory recognition on foot of the route, to then give rise to the first round, the training session.
In this first pass, the Sevillian pilot Moses Rides He scored the best time (01: 13.212) with his Peugeot 205 Rallye, a vehicle that his father acquired when he competed, and with which Moi continues to wage war many years later.
It is nice to see how the passion for motoring is passed from generation to generation, and we are sure that this will happen again in the next generation of the Cabalga, which is already underway. Congratulations.

Third best time of this manga was for the local Juan Francisco Cano, who went to Bayarque with a Fiat Seicento instead of his usual Citroën Saxo.
In the second official and final race of the event, the Cordoba Roberto Cubero returned by his fueros and marked a spectacular 1: 11.706, the best time of the whole morning, which was worth the victory. Moisés Cabalga registered the second best chrono of this manga, and David Manzano the third.
