Warm-up under threatening sky at the Bol d’Or
YART Yamaha, who will start from pole position, retained control in a cautious warm-up session this morning on the Paul Ricard circuit. A few drops of rain have begun to fall on the Le Castellet track, and it looks like the weather will be a key factor at the 83rd Bol d’Or.
YART Yamaha set the quickest lap of the warm-up under a very threatening sky, ahead of F.C.C. TSR Honda France and Webike SRC Kawasaki France. Team 33 Coyote Louit Moto, the top Superstock, were 4th-quickest of the final test run before the race start.
The warm-up enabled the 56 competing teams to size up track conditions, which are now trickier.
The 83rd Bol d’Or will be flagged off at 3pm on the Paul Ricard circuit.
