Adrien Chareyre wins the GP of Sicily

A beautiful sun has welcomed this last day of the Supermoto Gran Prix of Sicily, held in the Boccadifalco Airport and organized by Youthstream Events, Youthstream, Moto Club Dream Team and FMI.

Great response from the public, who has witnessed the return on the island of the GP of Sicily, full of surprises that have caused the final results to change in the very last race of the day. Winner of this exciting GP the French champion Adrien Chareyre on his Aprilia Fast Wheels Team. With this victory he gains important points for the championship, after the unsatisfying race in Pavia. Three second positions were enough for the French to arrive first on the podium in front of his little brother Thomas (TM Racing Factory), who confirms his title of championship leader by winning the last race and arriving third and forth in the first two races.

Third overall is for the beloved Italian Ivan Lazzarini (HM Honda Racing), two times on third position and once forth in the three races of today, but above all always more comfortable in his second position in the championship.

No luck for the Finnish Mauno Hermunen (TM SHR), great winner of the first races but unlucky in the last one, when he was obliged to restart from the end because of the dying out of his moto when he was first. Forth absolute position for him, who in the qualifications comes before the Italians Christian Ravaglia (Ktm Miglio), Max Verderosa (Honda HBV), Elia Sammartin (Suzuki Pergetti).
