Motors Events are calling the tune in the Superstock class at the 24 Heures Motos. The Suzuki-mounted team are ahead of Moto Ain on Yamaha and Team 33 Coyote Louit Moto on Kawasaki 2 hours from the finish.
The Superstock teams are once again proving their mettle. The 3 leading teams in this category – which does not benefit from such Formula EWC exclusives as the quick-release wheel change system – have made it into the Top 10.
James Westmoreland, Johan Nigon and Adrien Ganfornina are lapping consistently in 6th place on the Motors Events Suzuki #50 after starting from 12th on the grid, having carved out a 3-lap lead over their rivals. On the Yamaha Moto Ain bike, Robin Mulhauser, Roberto Rolfo and Stefan Hill are pushing hard for the 2nd step of the Superstock podium ahead of Team 33 Coyote Louit Moto’s Kawasaki with Enzo Boulom, Chris Leesch and Kevin Manfredi in the saddle.
All three teams are getting their revenge after failing to finish in the points at the Bol d’Or, the first round of the 2018-2019 FIM EWC.
The fourth Superstock of the race, Junior Team Le Mans Sud Suzuki, were on their way to the podium before a broken exhaust slowed their progress. GERT56 by GS Yuasa, the team leading the category at the start of the race, had to withdraw after experiencing a crash and electronics issues.
