Thomas Chareyre was just third overall but he was proclaimed the S1 World Champion. Davide Gozzini finished fourth and was second of the Championship just two points behind the French.

Second overall was his compatriot Massimiliano Porfiri and third was Uros Nastran, who won his first UEM Open Championship. In the S3 class Mitchell-Thomas Malachi dominated the three races and with this result he finished second in the Championship.


Husqvarna CH Racing dominated the Catalan Grand Prix in Salou with the overall victory of Hermunen and the second position of Adrien Chareyre. Hermunen took the holshot in the three races and dominated the first and second from beginning to end. In the third race his teammate Adrien Chareyre imposed an impressive rhythm and the Finish had to settled for the second place. Hermunen improved one position in the Championship and was finally third, 30 points behind the World Champion Thomas Chareyre.

Other Husqvarna CH Racing rider Adrien Chareyre felt really confident this weekend on his Husqvarna machine and after wining the Superpole and being third and second in the first races, he clinched the victory of the last race. It was his first heat victory of the season and the French expressed his satisfaction of being back racing with the top three riders of the series. Adrien Chareyre ended fifth of the S1 Championship.

747 Motorsport TM Racing Factory’s Thomas Chareyre completed the podium and he also achieved his maiden FIM S1 Word Title. The French arrived in Salou level in points with his teammate Gozzini and any mistake could ruin his Championship. Thomas ended second in the first race and then he rode safe finishing fourth in the last two heats.

Fourth was other 747 Motorsport TM Racing Factory rider Gozzini who could only be fifth in race one as he started from the second row of the grid. In the second race the Italian did a good start, but a small mistake in lap two made him lose some positions and he finished fifth. Gozzini had to win the race to keep on fighting for the Championship, but when the Italian caught the leader Adrien Chareyre it was too late and he had to settle for the second position. Gozzini was finally the runner up of the Championship just two points behind Thomas Chareyre.

HM Honda Racing’s Lazzarini completed the top five, but he could have been among the top three riders as he finished fifth and third in the first two races. The Italian crashed with Beltrami in race three while he was riding fifth and he had to recover from the 11th position up to the eighth. The Italian improved one position in the Championship and he finally ended fourth.

Italian Ravaglia repeated the overall sixth position obtained in Bulgaria and he finished seventh in the Championship. His compatriot Gaspardone had a great weekend in Salou riding among the top ten riders during the three races and he was finally seventh overall.

Occhini and Beltrami finished eighth and ninth respectively and other Italian Sammartin completed the top ten.

Local rider Cucharrera ended in a consistent twelfth position.

Van Den Bosch suffered a crashed in the first heat and could not finish the race due to a heavy pain on his left shoulder. The French tried to race the second heat but he had to give up as the pain persisted and he had difficulties to let the power down to the bike. VDB ended finally sixth in the World Championship.
