Carole (France), 13 October 2022 – Following the Grand Prix of Lombardia (Italy) hold on the 25 of September , second last Grand Prix of the season , this weekend the battle for the Supermoto world title will take place on the beautiful International Circuit of Carole on the outskirts of Paris. The track is a combination of long straights and three off-road sections that make it very special and selective as well as spectacular.
There is a lot of interest in this GP where the World and European champions will be crowned, mostly because only few points separate the contenders.
The focus will be on the duel for the title of the S1GP class where the leader Marc-Reiner Schmidt (L30 Racing / TM Factory) will try to maintain his leadership until the last checkered flag and become world champion for the second time in a row. It is not an easy situation especially after that the Austrian Lukas Hollbacher (Ktm MTR Team) won the previous GP in Italy. Hollbacher, with a very strong performance, reduced the gap from the German leader to only ten points. Carole’s results will be crucial to crown the new king of Supermoto World Championship.
Following Hollbacher we found the multi time World Champion SMX ASD Thomas Chareyre, with a gap of 13 points from Schmidt and only three from the second position of Hollbacher. Chareyre will have all his home soils fans cheering for him and pushing him to a solid victory.
Fourth position is for the Italian rider Elia Sammartin (L30 Racing/TM Factory) who will do his best to reach the final podium.
