Last-minute tweaks before the race
Team SRC Kawasaki once again took the lead at the warm up this morning, ahead of GMT94 Yamaha and YART Yamaha Official EWC Team.
After the final session that teams use to validate their technical choices for the race, Suzuki Endurance Racing Team and Tecmas BMW lined up behind the leading trio on the starting grid: Team SRC Kawasaki, YART Yamaha Official EWC Team and GMT94 Yamaha.
The two top Superstocks, LMD63/Ultimate Cup and Yamaha Viltaïs Experiences, held on to their 6th and 7th place right behind these teams.
Following the series of crashes that took place during qualifying, some teams used the warm up to recompose and test out their new line-up.
At AM Moto Racing Compétition, Alex Plancassagne has replaced Romain Maître, who suffered a broken collarbone after crashing during the tests. RAC 41 has roped in Axel Aynié to round off its line-up following Cyprien Schmidt’s injury.
The race starts at 3pm today on the Bugatti circuit.
