Win and record for Javi Villa, 2013 Spanish Hillclimb Champion.

Tenerife 20th October: Javi Villa completed in Tenerife today his perfect season in the 2013 Spanish Hillclimb Championship, scoring yet another win and celebrating his title of category 2 champion clinched yesterday with his double win in races 1 and 2 of the Arona-La Escalona hillclimb, last round of the championship.

With the title already won, todays motivation for Villa was to score another win and try to beat his own record for the event, set by last year. A double target accomplished by winning race 3 with ease, by almost two seconds from his closest challenger, and doing a time of 2:31.121 which improved his previous record by 4 thousands of a second. A great result having in mind that in 2012 the race was run in November, with far lower temperatures than this very hot weekend at the Tenerife island, that confirms the outstanding job dome by Javi and the Bango Racing Cars team throughout the whole year with the new B49, the performances and behaviour of which is always better compared with the already very competitive CM05EVO they run last season.

Today's win also means that Javi finishes the 2013 season unbeaten in the Spanish Hillclimb Championship, having won the fifteen races he has entered. An amazing streak starting at the Ubrique hillclimb, in mid April, and that went on for the whole season with wins at Fito, Santo Emiliano, Peña Cabarga and, this weekend, Arona-La Escalona. A perfect route that lead Javi to clinch the Spanish Hillclimb Championship, a title of special relevance for him as it's the third national series he's won after the two victories in the F3 Junior category and the Mini Challenge. Having won three championships with such different characteristics, two run on circuits and one on hillclimbs, also driving cars so diverse as a single-seater, a tin-top and a CM sports cars, adds yet more value to this achievement just achieved by Javi, no doubt one of the most versatile drivers in international motorsport.

Javier Villa;s own words: "We finish the season very happy, with the title of Spanish Champion, a clean sweep of wins and also running faster than last year... we can't ask for more!"
