Perolari completes Tati Team Beringer Racing’s EWC challenge
Corentin Perolari is making the move from Yamaha to Honda power by joining Tati Team Beringer Racing for the 2024 FIM Endurance World Championship.The French youngster’s arrival, which coincides with the extension of Tati Team Beringer Racing’s partnership with IT company AVA6, completes its EWC line-up following on from earlier signings, Hugo Clère and Randy Krummunacher.“I am happy to join the Tati Team Beringer Racing for the 2024 season for several reasons,” said 25-year-old Perolari, who previously raced for Team Moto-Ain in the EWC. “First, for the team, for their results and their state of mind. They are one of the best private teams on the set. In recent years, the team has often been in front of the official Kawasaki, whether in qualifying or in the race. The technical team is therefore solid. Regarding the riders, Hugo Clère has a big experience in endurance and Randy Krummunacher I know well, since we were riding against each other in World Supersport. The new Honda CBR 1000 RR-R is also a big source of motivation. Finally, to finish, I am happy to continue endurance.”Tati Team Beringer Racing head Patrick Enjolras said: “We are happy to welcome Corentin. He is a young ride certainly but he is at the same time fast, reliable, and begins to have a good experience in endurance. With Randy and Hugo, they have more or less the same riding style and the same size. This will help us in the development of the Honda. “Then we are really satisfied to continue our collaboration with AVA6. This will be our fifth season together. It is always very important for a team to have partners. AVA6 has the same objectives as us: duration performance and reliability.”The 24 Heures Motos at Le Mans opens the 2024 EWC season from 18-21 April.
