Race resume

Jules Cluzel fought with tenths of a second in the eleven laps of the race to finish second, 1.8 second behind the winner. On a track that didn’t always suit him, the #16 rider won forty precious points for the overall riders World Championship standings.

Corentin Perolari, struggling between 5th and 7th place, finishes second in his group and gets the ten points from 6th position. Corentin is 4th in the overall standings, and allows GMT94 to extend its lead in the team standings. Indeed, with 95 points, Christophe Guyot’s team already has a twenty-point lead over the second-placed team.

Jules Cluzel: “Being second twice is excellent for the championship. Jerez isn’t a circuit on which I feel particularly good, unlike Portimao. Now we know that if we want to have a chance of being World Champion in the riders’ classification, we have to win. The engine and my ability to brake late has allowed me to secure forty points. See you next Saturday in Portugal! »

Corentin Perolari: “Of course I would have liked to score a few more points, but I’m still fourth in the riders’ standings. In Portimao I feel very good and I think it will be possible to do even better. I had a good time here in Jerez and I am leaving a few steps ahead of my direct rivals. »

Christophe Guyot: “Jules and Corentin have fulfilled the contract. We knew that the conditions would be difficult, and that we couldn’t make any mistakes. Our two riders intelligently scored big points. We were consistent throughout the weekend. We need to gain three tenths per lap to play for victory, which Jules and Corentin are capable of doing. »
