Aragon - Spain

Race resume

After an impressive Superpole lap by Jules Cluzel in 1’53.1, the rider of the Yamaha GMT94 #16 broke the lap record dating from 2015, and was provisionally second on the grid for both races. Unfortunately, a yellow flag was brought out during Jules’ lap, which since this year automatically removes the fast laps of riders passing under this flag. As this cancellation was not communicated by the race direction to the teams before the end of the parc fermé, Jules couldn’t make another fast lap. So the native of Montluçon started race 1 from 4th place and Corentin Perolari from 12th.

After a very good start, Jules hung on to the leader for several laps, before handing over the lead to ensure a smart podium finish. He finishes 3rd. Corentin Perolari, also with a good start, finishes this race in 9th position.

Jules Cluzel: “I felt really good at the beginning of the race, but after four or five laps, the grip disappeared suddenly. We will analyze this with the team, I am not worried about tomorrow. It’s still nice to finish on the podium, whereas we really suffered from the middle of the race. Objective 2nd place for tomorrow! »

Corentin Perolari: “I started my race well, I was fighting for 7th place like last week, but I lost grip at mid-race. The race was particularly slow for everybody, there were a lot of crashes, we had to secure the points“.

 

See you tomorrow at 12.30 pm, for Race 2 live on Eurosport.
