Anything Jérémy Guarnoni’s fellow BMW Motorrad World Endurance Team riders can do, the Frenchman can also do.
With Illya Mykhalchyk and Markus Reiterberger winning in Germany and Malaysia respectively recently, Guarnoni – who also forms part of BMW’s race-winning FIM Endurance World Championship squad – took victory in the latest French Superbike Championship event at Nogaro.
After finishing third on his Team MDS BMW M 1000 RR in the first of two races, there was no stopping Guarnoni in the second counter for what marked his first victory in the series. Mike Di Meglio, who races for F.C.C. TSR Honda France in the EWC, finished race two in second position ahead of his team-mate Alan Techer.
Mathieu Gines, who rides for Wójcik Racing Team in the EWC, won the first race ahead of Kenny Foray, part of the Tecmas-MRP-BMW Racing Team line-up that claimed Dunlop Superstock Trophy honours in the 24 Heures Motos last month.
Meanwhile, Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium hosts round two of the EWC season, the 24H SPA EWC Motos, from 16-18 June.
