Van den Bosch begins final S1 title assault with pole in Busca

04.10.2008: Van den Bosch begins final S1 title assault with pole in Busca

A sunny Busca welcomed the Superiders at this penultimate round of the 2008 season.

Thierry Van Den Bosch took a storming pole in the S1 class leading Championship leader Bernd Hiemer. It was Adrien Chareyre taking the honours in the S2 class topping the time sheets ahead of Christian Iddon.

In the S3 class Olivier Scheen took pole as Fabrizio Bartolini was the quickest in the Open class.

S1

Courtesy of an incredible lap DRC SuperMoto Aprilia Factory’s Thierry Van Den Bosch took today’s pole as he was the sole rider breaking the 1 minute 19 second barrier. The Frenchman sits second in the standings as KTM Italia Miglio’s Bernd Hiemer leads the Championship.

The latter took a solid second quickest time behind VDB as he led the first half of the timed session before Van Den Bosch’s charge.

The duo will be back to action tomorrow morning fighting for the Superpole together with other challengers HM Honda Racing Monticelli’s Jerome Giraudo and the winner of the latest GP in Andorra Thomas Chareyre onboard the Husqvarna CH Racing machine.

Third placed in the Championship Ivan Lazzarini took fifth missing the front row by 0.2 seconds as Eddy Seel was sixth.

Using a special clutch lever combining also the rear brake lever Matthew Winstanley struggled throughout qualifying and decided to use the standard brake and clutch system in tomorrow’s GP.

Top five: 1. Thierry van den Bosch (FRA, Aprilia), 1:18.697; 2. Bernd Hiemer (GER, KTM), +0:00.387; 3. Jerome Giraudo (FRA, Honda), +0:00.414; 4. Thomas Chareyre (FRA, Husqvarna), +0:00.502; 5. Ivan Lazzarini (ITA, Aprilia), +0:00.712

S2

Championship leader Adrien Chareyre took a solid pole aboard the works Husqvarna with PMR H2O Aprilia Off Road’s Christian Iddon and KTM Italia Miglio’s Attilio Pignotti also on the same pace of 1.19 minutes.

The trio will head the Superpole challenge as TM Factory’s Davide Gozzini is set to round off the front row after a shot to the top spot tomorrow.

Gozzini is still six points off Chareyre in a dogfight for the S2 World Title; Gerald Delepine is a distant third and he was fifth in today’s time sheets.

The defending Champion will head row two next to young guns and home riders Andrea Occhini and Paolo Gaspardone.

Luca Minutilli was ninth as he can still build on his fifth place in the Championship exploiting Massimo Beltrami’s absence due to injury.

 

Top five: 1. Adrien Chareyre (FRA, Husqvarna), 1:19.407; 2. Christian Iddon (GBR, Aprilia), +0:00.477; 3. Attilio Pignotti (ITA, KTM), +0:00.553; 4. Davide Gozzini (ITA, TM), +0:00.658; 5. Gérald Delepine (BEL, Husqvarna), +0:00.919

THE UEM EUROPEAN SUPERMOTO CHAMPIONSHIP

Being a man out for revenge after dropping down to third in the Championship in Andorra Olivier Scheen stormed to pole beating local favourite Matteo Traversa. Alessandro Asnicar was third with Championship leader Oliver Pope rounding off the top four.

Fabrizio Bartolini, the cousin of former Motocross World Champion Andrea Bartolini, took an unexpected pole ahead of Viktor Bolsec and Uros Nastran. Luca D’Addato was fourth quickest preparing his quest to the top of the standings as he sits in second with a three point gap from leader Heino Meusburger – the latter had a bad day in Busca ending 10th.

 

THE KART PLANET AND BUSCA

The Kart Planet in Busca is one of the few permanent SuperMoto facilities in the World being characterized by a challenging track made of a twisty slide section combined with a selective sky section. The paddock area measures 18000 square metres and a dedicated building has been constructed last year to host the club-house, the race direction, the jury, the press centre and the conference room. The Kart Planet hosted its first GP in 2006 winning the Grand Prix Revelation Award at the FIM Awards.

Busca is a small town in the province of Cuneo, in the North West of the peninsula. Busca has about 10,000 inhabitants. Cuneo is just 17 kilometres away as the capital city of the Piemonte Region Torino –where the SuperMoto season kicked off last April- is 100 kilometres North. Busca has a charming town centre enclosed in the bastion that used to defend the city in the ancient times.
