While the double world champion Sebastien Charpentier, who had returned to service in Mondial Supersport after a two-year truce (read), finally decided to put an end to the experience after a too difficult start in the first race of the season at Phillip Island (read), Matthieu Lagrive will replace him on the handlebars of the Triumph of the BE1 Racing Team.
Aged 30, the pilot from Lisieux (14) will also participate in the world endurance championship. Originally planned on the S1000RR n ° 17 of Team BMW Michelin, it ended up on the Honda n ° 99 of BMP Elf following a disagreement with Daffix (read). He already has "72 starts to his credit in the category", recalls the International Motorcycling Federation (FIM), "with two pole positions and a third place".
Matthieu will therefore not wear the colors of BMW in the French Superbike Championship as planned alongside reigning champion Sebastien Gimbert (BMW S1000RR n ° 1) and 2008 vice champion Erwan Nigon (BMW S1000RR n ° 7). "For the sake of sporting consistency but also in order to allow Matthieu Lagrive to be able to be completely free to engage in a new challenge in the world championship, BMW Motorrad France will not engage a third driver to replace Matthieu Lagrive", said the manufacturer in a press release, hoping "sincerely to have the opportunity to collaborate later with Matthieu Lagrive" and wishing him "all the sporting success he deserves for his 2010 season".
Before taking back the handlebars of the Triumph on March 29 in Portimao (Portugal) for the second race of the season, he must join his new teammates Chaz Davies, Jason DiSalvo and David Salom in Valencia (Spain) on Thursday for testing. To be continued: stay connected !
