Johan Gimbert wins the ‘Wild Car”.

The stakes were high on July 16, as the Supersport 600 rider in the lead at the end of the weekend’s racing won the “Wild Card”. This “Wild Card” will be awarded during the French round of the World Supersport Championship, to be held at Magny-Cours on September 8, 9 and 10. The GMT94 team will provide a team and a Yamaha R6 to enable the best 2023 rider to race with the same equipment as Valentin Debise.

Johan Gimbert, 18, is the winner. Congratulations, Johan!
