The unrivaled Yoshimura SERT

With no less than 19 laps ahead of the competition, the Yoshimura SERT won the 84th edition of the Bol d’Or this Sunday at Le Castellet and takes the lead of the motorcycle endurance world championship.

Gregg Black, Xavier Siméon and Sylvain Guintoli have hardly ever been worried. At the end of 24 hours of racing on the Circuit Paul-Ricard in Le Castellet, the trio entered by the Yoshimura SERT team won the 84th edition of the Bol d’Or, third of the four rounds of the World Championship, without a hitch. endurance FIM EWC. A race which was marked by very difficult weather, especially during the night, and a very large number of withdrawals. Indeed, only 20 of the 41 entered saw the checkered flag this Sunday. At the end of the double clock tower, the Suzuki GSX-R 1000 flanked by the number 1 completed the trifle of 704 laps to win the event for the second time in a row after 2019, the 2020 edition having been canceled due to the health crisis. While SRC Kawasaki, championship leaders before the start and natural contenders for the podium, threw in the towel, and FCC TSR Honda team both threw in the towel before the halfway mark, it was with 19 laps. ahead of time that the Yoshimura SERT won.

Yoshimura SERT regains championship lead

A second place that goes to the crew formed by Randy de Puniet, Robin Mulhauser and Roberto Rolfo and entered by the Moto Ain team on a Yamaha YZF-R1. A trio with two former Grand Prix riders who managed to avoid the pitfalls to beat the BMRT 3D Maxxess Nevers by four loops, with Anthony Loiseau, Jonathan Hardt and Julien Pilot riding the Kawasaki ZX-10R. A team which also wins the SuperStock category. After dominating the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Yoshimura SERT signs its second victory of the season and makes you forget her 17th place at the 12 Hours of Estoril last July. Taking advantage of the failings of his rivals, the Franco-Japanese team takes advantage of its success at Le Castellet to regain the lead of the world endurance championship before the final round of the season. Initially scheduled for Suzuka for the traditional eight-hour race, this round will finally take place on October 9 at the Most circuit in the Czech Republic.
