S1

It was an excellent weekend for Husqvarna CH Racing’s Hermunen after clinching the Superpole and then finishing on the top of the podium for the first time ever in his career. The Finnish dominated the second and the third race from beginning to end, but he struggled a little bit in the third one ending third after Thomas Chareyre and race winner Gozzini. Hermunen is now fourth in the Championship, just seven points away from VDB, and is looking forward to the last GP of the season in Salou to try to finish the Championship in the top three. 

747 Motorsport TM Racing Factory’s Thomas Chareyre finished second overall and he regained the red plate from his team mate Gozzini having the exact amount of points in the Championship standings. In the first race the French did not have a good start and had to work all the way through until finishing second starring in a tight battle with GP winner Hermunen and VDB. In the second race, Thomas Chareyre got a solid second position and in the last and crucial heat the French had to fight tooth and nail with his brother Adrien in order to finish second. 

Other 747 Motorsport TM Racing Factory rider Gozzini completed the rostrum, but he lost the red plate having the same points as his team mate Thomas Chareyre. The Italian started by dominating the first heat with superb authority finishing first, four seconds in front of Thomas Chareyre and Hermunen, but could only finish fourth in the two following races. Gozzini is willing to race against Thomas Chareyre in the last GP of the season in Salou and try to achieve his maiden FIM S1 World Title – a goal which is common to both. 

Husqvarna CH Racing’s Adrien Chareyre managed to be fourth overall, which is his best result of the season, but he is still seventh in the Championship 20 points behind Hiemer. The French was just sixth in the first race, but in the second and third ones showed everybody why he has the number one on his Husqvarna machine. Adrien Chareyre finished third in the last two heats after fighting for the second position with his brother Thomas.

Completing the top five was PMR H2O Aprilia Racing’s Van Den Bosch, who could not be on the podium as he did in the previous GP in Sicily. VDB achieved being fourth in the first heat but he had to race the next two motos with the second bike and it took some time for the French to adapt his riding to the new settings of his Aprillia machine. VDB ended just fifth and sixth respectively. 

Ravaglia also had his best season result ending sixth overall, but his crash in the first heat while he was riding fifth made the race director stop the race immediately. The Italian rider was fortunately not injured and he was able to race the two following motos finishing sixth and fifth respectively. 

Hiemer continues struggling with his bike and was just seventh overall with only one point advantage over Bussei. Ninth was Sammartin and completing the top ten was Lazzarini, who is still recovering from his pulmonary bronchitis. 

Occhini, who was on the third step of the podium in Sicily, could not find a good rhythm in the Bulgarian track and ended just 12th overall.
