Pain but real gains for Team Moto Ain in EWC
Team Moto Ain’s talented trio of Claudio Corti, Corentin Perolari and Isaac Viñales might have endured Bol d’Or pain but the squad’s performance in the deciding round of the 2022 FIM Endurance World Championship underlined the gains it continues to make.
After qualifying fifth at Circuit Paul Ricard – its best result in the EWC so far – Team Moto Ain held sixth after the points-paying eight-hour mark having run in fifth for a time.
It remained in sixth after 11 hours but technical issues would ultimately result in the team dropping down the order prior to its retirement at 07h00 local time.
A Facebook post from the team read: “The pace was there, fast riders, team more pro and motivated than ever to play the lead.”
Corti from Italy, Frenchman Perolari and Spaniard Viñales shared Team Moto Ain’s #96 Yamaha.
