Hugo Robert and Johan Gimbert leave Le Mans leading the French Supersport Championship.
The two riders supported by GMT94 achieved a victory and 4 podiums after a very eventful weekend.
A tumultuous first race
The first race of the year took place in rainy weather. There were many crashes and the race was tumultuous. Kevin Longearet won the race ahead of Johan Gimbert and Hugo Robert. The other riders supported by GMT94 had different fortunes. Hugo De Cancellis impressed. He started from 16th place and reached 4th place.
The mythical rainy weather of Le Mans left some after-effects. Illies Blanchard, for example, was heavily injured and will not be able to participate in the second race. He will be back for the next round in Nogaro, which will take place in one month.
Loïc Arbel had a heavy crash on Friday but he came back to finish both races. He finished the race with a good 5th place despite his injury.
Enzo De la Vega fell during the race but he got back up and went on to get 6th place and gain points for the championship.
Bartholomé Perrin made an excellent start, he did the first laps in first position. He fell twice but he didn’t give up and continued to get 8th place.
Luca Cersosimo wanted not to fall during this race, which he succeeded in doing despite the difficulty of the track, he finished the race and obtained the 11th place.
Alexy Negrier fell during the warm-up lap. He did a very good race, although he started the race in last position. Unfortunately he crashed at the end of the race with other riders, he could not finish the race.
Victory in Supersport 300 for Julio Garcia. The GMT94 supported rider, Justine Pedemonte, made a good start but unfortunately crashed on the first lap.
Victory for Mike Di Meglio in Superbike ahead of an excellent Corentin Perolari ( Yamaha R1 Pirelli ). Difficult race for Martin Renaudin who finishes the race in 10th position.
A 100% GMT94 podium for the first round of the FSBK, in Le Mans.
The second race of the FSBK 600 was incredible! Johan Gimbert and Hugo Robert fought for the first place with some great overtaking moves until the finish line. Hugo Robert finished first, followed closely by Johan Gimbert in second place and Enzo De La Vega in third. A very nice podium 100% supported by the GMT94.
