Since 2016, the GMT94 Yamaha has been providing technical support to young riders competing in the French Superbike Championship. In addition to offering a wild-card to the leader of the French Supersport Championship at the Magny-Cours WorldSBK round, GMT94 supports nine young riders at national level.
This weekend the second round of the French Superbike Championship took place on the Nogaro circuit. Ludovic Cauchi (17yo) won the first Supersport 600 race, ahead of Valentin Debise (former Grand Prix, Moto America, WorldSBK rider) and Tom Berçot. After finishing second twice in Le Mans, Ludovic is now a serious contender for the title. In Race 2, Ludovic finished 2nd behind Valentin.
Vincent Falcone (17 years old) finished 7th and 6th overall (3rd in the U21 category) in both races. After two difficult starts, Vincent was able to set some good times to move up several places.
Lyvann Luchel (20 years old), had finished one minute away from victory in Le Mans. He finished 12th overall in Race 1 at Nogaro, thirty seconds from victory. Lyvann thus signs one of the best improvements between the two stages of the championship. The second race was more difficult, he finished 16th.
Lilian Di Lorenzo (21yo), participates to the FSBK round in Nogaro, while waiting for the French Promosport Cup to start. With an original engine, Lilian fought all race for the top 10, and finished 14th of the first round. Lilian showed that he will be a contender for the Promosport title in 2021. In race 2, Lilian improved again and finished 12th.
Marcus Delestre (17 years old) has made a new step forward, as he came almost 30 seconds closer to victory between the Le Mans and Nogaro rounds. He finished 16th and 18th.
Charles Cortot (21 years old) had started the season very well with a top 5 and two podiums in the Challenger class on Le Mans circuit. On the Gers track, the rider from Montluçon concluded the first race in 13th place. He then had to pit in the second race.
Luca Cersosimo, another rider supported by the GMT94 is unfortunately injured, and could not take the start of this weekend.
Finally, Martin Renaudin (22 years old), entered in the Superbike category, finished 2nd in the U27 classification, and 11th overall in Race 1. After his top 5 and his two victories in the Challenger class on Le Mans circuit, Martin remains in the fight for the U27 title.
