Dean Berta Viñales has passed away

The WorldSBK Championship has announced the passing of WorldSSP300 rider Dean Berta Viñales

Berta Viñales was involved in a multi-rider incident at turn one during Saturday’s opening race of the Motul Spanish Round of the FIM Supersport 300 World Championship at the Circuito de Jerez-Angel Nieto, with the race immediately red flagged.

The 15-year-old suffered severe head and thoracic injuries. Medical vehicles arrived at the site immediately and the rider was attended to on track, in the ambulance and at the circuit Medical Centre.


Despite the best efforts of the circuit medical staff, the Medical Centre has announced that Berta Viñales has sadly succumbed to his injuries.

Viñales, a rookie in the 300 class, rode for his uncle’s Vinales Racing Team after two years in the European Talent Cup.

Following the incident, the remainder of Saturday’s action in Jerez has been cancelled.
