Pleven SuperMoto GP Results (Video)


2011 SuperMoto

The SuperMoto Championship visited the Dolna Metropolia circuit in Pleven, Bulgaria, Sunday. The race was dominated by Factory Husqvarna Team rider SuperMoto rider Mauno Hermunen, who was joined on the podium by Adrien Chareyre and Ivan Lazzarini as they were second and third respectively.

The Finnish rider Hermunen disputed the second SuperMoto Grand Prix of the season with a very clear aim. The Finnish member of the Factory Husqvarna Team wanted to repeat the fantastic result he achieved in Pleven last year and he made it.

Despite Race 1 saw Hermunen standing on the 4th spot of the front row of SuperMoto, he took a hard fought 4th place finish after overcoming home rider Angel Karanyotov in the final lap. Hermunen’s quiet start was followed by two top results: the Finnish took the leadership in Race 2 right after the first laps moving at the head of the pack and opening a 1.326 gap over rival Adrien Chareyre and he did it again in the final one where he was 2.579 faster than the French rider of the Fast Wheels ASD Team. Hermunen is the new red plate holder in SuperMoto and has a 7-point advantage over defending Super Moto World Champion Thomas Chareyre.

The second step of the SuperMoto podium went to Adrien Chareyre, who had a great feeling with the Bulgarian track and clinched three brilliant 2nd positions after taking advantage from the front row start. The French Superider came home really satisfied as he jumped from the 7th place in the standings to the 4th one, and now it is easier for him taking a look at the top three.

The enthusiast crowd who attended the SuperMoto Grand Prix of Bulgaria also cheered the other protagonist of this action-packed day, Ivan Lazzarini. The HM Honda Racing Italian rider put his name on the Superpole and starred in the opening race as he was the first to take the chequered flag, while he grasped two 3rd places in the following ones. Lazzarini was satisfied at the end of the racing weekend as he confirmed his 3rd position in the Championship standings.

The 2010 SuperMoto World Champion Thomas Chareyre was 4th overall at the end of a tough day. After classifying with a promising 3rd position in Race 1 he crashed in the next one after the red lights blinked off and finished in 11th, while he worked his way up in Race 3 and took a hard-earned 5th spot. The youngest of the Chareyre brothers was a bit disappointed by the day as he lost the leadership in the standings, where he dropped to the runner up spot.
