NEW PODIUM FOR GMT94 YAMAHA TEAM
GMT94 Yamaha Team was at Misano circuit (Italy) with the ambition to get back on the podium. During qualifying & superpole, GMT94 Yamaha riders achieved good performances.
RACE 1 (Saturday) : Jules Cluzel #16 was in the leading group and virtually on the podium. In the final laps, Jules slowed down. Finishing 4th, he secured essential points for championship. Unfortunately, Federico Caricasulo #94 crashed while trying to catch up with Jules Cluzel’s group.
RACE 2 (Sunday) : Jules Cluzel fought for the victory until the last two laps, before being overtaken by a rider. Finishing in 3rd position, Jules once again gained essential points in the World Supersport championship.
Owing to the red flag, Federico Caricasulo unfortunately had to start with five laps of used tyres, following a different strategy from Jules during practice. Indeed, following his qualifying and his lack of front feeling, the team decided to make him use one more new tyre than the others. It was necessary for him to work on the bike during the warm-up. Federico finished 9th.
The fourth round of the World Supersport championship will take place from 23th to 25th July 2021 at the Assen Circuit (Netherlands).
