THE TEAM WEBIKE SRC KAWASAKI FRANCE HITS THE 6TH POSITION (5TH IN THE EWC RANKING)

Webike_SRC

After many uncertainties linked to the heavy rain which fell continuously, the amputated race of 5 hours out of 8, was launched for good at 6 p.m. local time.

Gilles STAFLER, the charismatic Team Manager, came to seek the podium, so he will be satisfied with a place of honor below his usual ambitions.

Under the downpours which fell on the Sepang track, the WEBIKE SRC KAWASAKI France riders did a good job! The ascent to the general classification continues with an 8th place in the provisional classification at 5 small points from the 5th.

As for the ascent, it was also a question during the race, since pointed at the start of the event in 13th place, the trio composed of Jérémy GUARNONI, David CHECA and Erwan NIGON will cross the finish line a stone’s throw from the top 5.

At the end of the event on this tricky track, terribly lacking of grip, a decision was made 30 minutes from the checkered flag to overtake the relay of David CHECA while Jérémy GUARNONI had to start riding.

The rest of the story is told to us by the most French of the Catalans:

My first run was cautious, I took a pace that I would have liked more sustained but it was not possible for me to force more (I really nearly fly away many times). So I did my best to stay in the game without compromising all the work of the team because any fall was prohibited! During my second run, having measured my tires, I gave everything until the end. Finally, I want to warmly thank my teammates who did a great job during the qualifications with this 4th place in qualifying, accompanied by the 2 bonus points which result from it. We are looking forward to meeting you at Le Mans next April on a track that has been successful for us since, I remind you, we won it last year!

The final word for Jérémy GUARNONI:

Our 5th final position in the EWC ranking is not a bad performance given the lack of grip on this event. Later, we hoped to pass the intermediate tires which would have allowed us to go up strongly but the asphalt did not really dry. We are left unsatisfied, but on our wheels (including during the whole week when none of the three of us fell) proving at the same time that we are fast but reliable like the KAWASAKI ZX-10 RR with which we have not known any alert. Meet in Sarthe where we will aim for only one place: The first!
