Bol d'Or - GMT leads the warm up -

The prospect of a fight from beyond the grave in the next 24 hours is confirmed! The Yamaha n ° 94 of GMT achieved the best time of the warm up ahead of the Kawasaki France n ° 11 and the Suzuki n ° 1 world champion. Video interview with Sebastien Gimbert.

The 10 best warm up times

  1. N ° 94, Yamaha R1 from GMT (fastest lap in 1’42 "156)

  2. N ° 11, Kawasaki ZX10-R of Kawasaki France (best lap in 1’42.327)

  3. N ° 1, Suzuki GSXR 1000 from SERT (best time in 1’42.600)

  4. No. 7, Yamaha R1 of the Austria Racing Team (best time in 1’42.877)

  5. N ° 55, Honda CBR 1000 of National Motos (best time in 1’43.966)

  6. N ° 2, Suzuki GSXR 1000 from SERT (best time in 1’43.971)

  10. N ° 99, Yamaha R1 of Team Igol Acropolis Moto Expert (best time in 1’44.643)

We must not fall during the warm up: Vincent Philippe, Matthieu Lagrive and Julien da Costa on the Suzuki n ° 1 of SERT therefore probably did not take any risks during the warm up, but these times still give a preview taste of the potential of each team.

GMT # 94 Yamaha riders – Sebastien Gimbert, David Checa and Steve Plater – or # 11 Kawasaki riders – Ivan Silva, Julia Mazuecos and Erwan Nigon – are all in the mood to contemplate a victory in the Bol d’Or 2008…

It will also be necessary to follow closely the Honda CBR 1000 n ° 55 of National Motos and n ° 60 of the Team Motorcycle Review (9th time in warm up, 13th in qualifying) in the hands of Jean-Michel Bayle, Sebastien Charpentier and Thierry Traccan.

There is also good potential on the side of the crew of the Suzuki n ° 110 of AM Moto Racing Competition Igol (13th in the warm up) made up of Sullivan Hernandez, Pierre Guersillon and Fabrice Auger, the fastest driver of his team in practice.

For its part, the SERT remains very calm for the start of this 72nd Bol d’Or and intends to combine performance with caution: "the suspension problems encountered yesterday are now forgotten and I was able to concentrate perfectly to get the pole, it’s done !"explains Julien da Costa.
