Flash News

Corentin Perolari (20 years old) and Jules Cluzel (30) will compete in the 2019 World Supersport Championship under the GMT94 YAMAHA  banner.

The French team, based in Val de Marne (94), will be supported by Yamaha Racing, confirming their commitment to the class. Corentin  and Jules’ bikes will retain their 2018 competition numbers, 94 and 16, respectively.

Christophe Guyot: “Thanks to Yamaha Racing and all our partners who join our project to strengthen our team by bringing together youth and experience. With 40 career podiums and 17 victories (category record), Jules Cluzel is still in  pursuit of  that elusive world title and we will do everything to help him achieve this goal.

Jules will join Corentin Perolari and a French team that has the ambition  of bringing young riders to the highest level. We can count on Jules Cluzel’s experience and speed to guide young Corentin to podium finishes. Welcome to Jules.”

Corentin Perolari: “Thanks to GMT94 and Christophe Guyot for trusting me. The dream continues for me. Here I am now alongside Jules Cluzel who is one of the best in the world championship.

I get along great with him and he already helped me last year in my progress. It’s a great opportunity for me. I will do everything to draw from his experience and now aim for the podium.”

Jules Cluzel: “By winning 5 races, I have achieved nice things this year. But a chaotic season, and a clash in Portugal pushed me out of the title fight.  Joining GMT94 is my best opportunity. 

They helped me in 2018, I know that I can count on them to take me to the world title. I could see their progress this year and I understand why they have been three times Endurance world champion. These guys do not give up and will give everything to succeed. I realize what an opportunity this is and will know how to seize it.

I am also delighted to bring my experience to young Corentin Perolari, who deserves the confidence that Christophe has in him. I can’t wait for 2019.”
