The 2019 Spanish Autocross Championship completed its schedule the last weekend of September in the circuit of Cerro Negro, at Talavera de la Reina. The sun and the high temperatures were a constant factor along the final event of a season that produced yet another national title for Speed Car, champion in Car Cross with its driver Juan José Moll, second at Cerro Negro. At the podium was also his brand mate Pepe Arqué, third with another Xtrem, and Josep Aranda was also third in Car Cross Junior with another Speed Car.
Juan José Moll arrived to Cerro Negro leading the overall standings of the championship and showed already in practice that we was on a mission to win the title. After scoring the second fastest time on the timed session, the Speed Car won his three heats to get a slot in the front row of the grid for the final. In the race, it was enough for Moll to finish fifth so he didn't take any risk, followed closely his main rival in the fight for the championship, Iván Piña, and crossed the finish line with his Xtrem just a second behind the winner, a result that gave him the Spanish Car Cross Championship by fourth time.
As well as Moll also Josep Arqué got the podium after crossing under the chequered flag just fourth thents behind his brand mate with the second Speed Car in the top three at the last race of the season. Four more Industrias Lahoz built Xtrems got to the final for the best 15 of the weekend. Seventh and eight, separated by a mere tenth, were the Speed Car of Jordi Puigvert and Joan Salichs, while there was only half a second between the Xtrems of Arnau Biosca, who finished ninth, and his team mate at the 'escudería Mollerusa', Josep María Vila, who was tenth.
The season in the Car Cross Junior category also finished with a Speed Car driver on the podium. The young Josep Aranda showed again his good pace and great progess along the year finishing the last race in third position. Right behind him crossed under the chequered flag the Xtrem of Eduard Bañeres, who finished in that same position of the overal standings.
Two more drivers completed the presence of the Industrias Lahoz built cars in the final race for the Juniors. Pol Durán was seventh and Biel Gavilán ended up in ninth position.
