Since Thomas Chareyre entered in the FIM S1 World Championship back in 2007, he always rounded the top five at the end of the season. Thomas Chareyre’s bet for a change at the beginning of the 2010 joining 747 Motorsport TM Racing Factory team brought the World Title back to his new squad after Thierry Van Den Bosch won it last year.

Thomas Chareyre started racing the FIM SuperMoto World Championship in the S2 class back in 2004. His first Grand Prix was in Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium, and he could only finish twelfth, while his current teammate and runner up of the 2010 World Championship Gozzini won the first round of the season.

 In 2007 Thomas Chareyre moved to the S1 class and his results improved notoriously finishing third in his first year in the new category and helping his country to be at the top of the podium in the FIM SuperMoto of Nations of that year.

Later on he continued showing his potential in the series finishing fourth and second respectively the following years and this 2010 season has been a turning point in his career as he changed his inseparable Husqvarna for his new TM machine. On board of his new TM Chareyre has conquered the SuperMoto of Nations together with VDB and Grelier and has achieved his maiden World Title, second in a row for the Italian manufacturer.


THOMAS CHAREYRE’S CAREER IN THE FIM SUPERMOTO WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP

The 2010 FIM S1 World Champion entered the SuperMoto discipline in 2000 after racing the Motocross French championship for seven years. His SM career started in the small categories when he was just twelve years old and four years later he was already racing the FIM SM World Championship.

Thomas Chareyre did his debut in the FIM SuperMoto World series in 2004 in the S2 class on board of a Husqvarna machine. His beginnings in the Championship were not outstanding and most of the times he just rounded the top ten during the whole season. He finally finished 14th of the S2 class, while his current teammate Gozzini managed to be third in the point standings.

The following year the results were quite similar and Thomas Chareyre ended 12th at the end of the season. However, the French impressed some Superiders when he won the second heat of the Mediterranean GP and finished second behind his brother Adrien in the last Grand Prix of the season. Thomas Chareyre also represented his country in the UEM SuperMoto of European Nations during the same year, and helped his teammates to conquer the Trophy.

After such a great ending of the year, Thomas Chareyre expected to have an excellent 2006 season and try to fight for the top three places of the Championship. However, the French young man could not take part in three out of the eight Grand Prix that season because he broke his arm during a race in the French SM Championship. Thomas Chareyre raced the last Grand Prix of the year and finished 14th of the Championship while his compatriot VDB obtained his third World Title.

In 2007 Thomas Chareyre decided to change categories and he adapted his Husqvarna machine to enter the S1 class. The French succeeded in winning two Grand Prix and ended third in the Championship behind VDB and his brother Adrien, who won his first World Title that year. Besides, Thomas Chareyre took part in the FIM SuperMoto of Nations and helped his country to be at the very top of the rostrum.

The following year Thomas Chareyre joined Team Husqvarna CH Racing but could not improve his third position in the Championship and finished fourth. At the end of the season the French got two consecutive Grand Prix victories but they were not enough to finish among the top three best riders of the 2008 season.

In 2009 Thomas Chareyre showed that he was ready to be proclaimed World Champion dominating four out of the seven Grand Prix’s of the season. Unfortunately, the French could not take part in the Grand Prix of Great Britain due to a crash he suffered during Saturday’s practice sessions. Thomas Chareyre was finally the runner up of the Championship just three points behind the 2009 FIM S1 World Champion Van Den Bosch.

Switching to TM in 2010 after racing his whole career with Husqvarna was an important challenge for Thomas Chareyre. However, after his third overall position in the first race of the season in Castelleto di Branduzzo, he was already confident with his riding and he was convinced that his TM machine was the best bike at the grid and they were the best team in the paddock.

In the second race weekend of the season in Sankt Wendel, Germany, he was the fastest in the Superpole, dominated the three races and became the new Championship leader. Before this weekend in Salou, Thomas Chareyre had declared publicly that such weekend in Sankt Wendel was one of the best moments in his professional career.

The following Grand Prix in Triscina, Sicily, was a weekend to forget. Thomas Chareyre finished out of the podium due to a DNF in race one as he had a problem with his TM machine. However, he dominated the second and the third race and he finally ended fourth overall, while his teammate Gozzini got his first GP victory of the season and took the leadership of the Championship.

Before coming to Salou this weekend, Thomas Chareyre took back the red plate from Gozzini in Bulgaria after finishing second overall and the Italian being third. Both 747 Motorsport TM Racing Factory riders were tided in points in the Championship and they had to fight for the Title in the same conditions.

In the Grand Prix of Catalunya Thomas Chareyre finished in front of his teammate this weekend, so he was proclaimed the 2010 FIM S1 World Champion with just two points advantage over runner up Gozzini.
