One-two results in France

An overview of the weekend’s racing action

The French Superbike Championship (FSBK) and the French European Bikes Championship (FR EU) held their sixth and penultimate race event of the season at the Circuit Carole near Paris at the weekend.

In the first FSBK race, BMW rider Kenny Foray (Tecmas Racing Team) claimed second place on the podium and also rode the fastest race lap on his BMW S 1000 RR. Foray started from pole position in race two and battled for the win once again. However, Foray’s race came to an early end eight laps before the finish. For as yet unknown reasons, the bike suddenly slowed down and was hit from behind by another rider. Consequently, the Frenchman was forced to give up on his hopes of closing the gap to the front-runner David Checa in the battle for the title. Going into the final two races of the season, Foray in second place overall trails Checa by 58 points, meaning that Checa has secured the championship crown before the end of the season. The finale will be held in Albi from 23rd to 25th September.

In the FR EU, the BMW S 1000 RR riders celebrated a one-two result in both races. Benjamin Colliaux (Team Cherot Moto Sport) won the first race ahead of Florian Brunet-Lugardon (Gers Moto Vitesse Ordannaise). Colliaux also got the fastest race lap. A total of nine BMWs crossed the finish line in the top ten spots. In the second race, Michel Amalric (Tecmas Racing Team) celebrated his first win of the season. Cyril Brunet-Lugardon (Gers Moto Vitesse Ordannaise) was at his side in second place on the podium. Three BMW riders now lead the pack in the championship standings: Colliaux leads with 198 points, followed by Florian Brunet-Lugardon with 181 points. The pair will now fight for the title at the finale in Albi. Amalric has moved up into third place with 129 points.

The legendary track at Imola hosted the fourth round of the Italian Superbike Championship (CIV) at the weekend. Polita in sixth was the best-placed BMW representative in the first race. Lorenzo Lanzi crossed the finish line in sixth place as the best BMW rider in race two. See below for an overview of all of the weekend’s results:
