Race resume

After yesterday’s race, Corentin Perolari was determined to do well. After another very good start, he battled for several laps in the leading group. A little bit before mid-race, Corentin drops back and finishes in 8th position.

Kyle Smith, starting from 7th place, was locked in the first corner, before crashing on the second lap. Once on the ground, Kyle’s bike unfortunately caused the crash of Oscar Gutierrez, who couldn’t do anything to avoid the collision.

Jules Cluzel continues his re-education on his side and is doing everything he can to get back in good shape on the Yamaha R6 GMT94.

Christophe Guyot: “We remember yesterday’s podium from this weekend. Kyle had the pace to do well in the dry, but the crash is also part of the race. Corentin started well before losing his pace of the first laps. This isn’t the best race of the year, but we are leaving for Magny-Cours full of hope to be on the podium again”.

See you now in Magny-Cours on October 3rd and 4th, for the 7th round of the World Supersport Championship !
