FIM SuperMoto World Championship back to Latina for round three of 2009 season

FUNCHAL (PORTUGAL), 2 September 2009 â This weekend the FIM SuperMoto World Championship will make its comeback to the Italian track Il Sagittario in Latina as the action resumes after the British GP in Mallory Park.

Van Den Bosch leads the S1 series at his first season onboard the factory TM. Debutant Hermunen is second ahead of Lazzarini, who won at Mallory.

In the S2 class reigning Champion Chareyre is first ahead of archrival Gozzini. As Chareyre took victory in Viterbo and Mallory, Gozzini ended second twice.

The UEM series comes back to action with Wuerterle leading the S3 and Monticelli the Open.

S1

Despite 2009 being his first year on a Honda, HM Honda Racingâs Lazzarini took victory at round two in Great Britain and stormed from eighth to third in the Championship. The Italian looks forward to his home round in Latina to try and make up ground on front runners VDB and Hermunen.

Van Den Bosch is another Superider who entered a new team in 2009 as he switched from Aprilia to TM after a three year experience on the twin cylinder machine. The 747 Motorsport – TM Racing Factory man took a surprising win at the opening round of the Championship in Viterbo and is keeping the red plate since then. VDB finished second in Great Britain, level in points with Lazzarini.

The latter gained 9 points on debutant Hermunen of the Husqvarna CH Racing team. The sole Finn in the FIM SuperMoto World Championship, who has taken back to back podiums in Viterbo and Mallory, holds the runner up spot in the S1 class. Latina is due to be a new experience for the 21 year old who has never raced a Grand Prix on the Italian course.

Veteran Seel of the Rigo Racing squad was on Latinaâs podium in 2006, when the series made its last appearance at Il Sagittario. Now the Belgian is fourth in the Championship and another podium finish is what he needs to cut the gap from the top three guys.

Youngster Hodgson of Great Britain completes the top five.

Latina will host also Japanese youngsters Matsumoto (Husqvarna CH Racing) and Kaneko (V2 Racing).

S2

Defending S2 Champion Adrien Chareyre has been dominating since the season started in Viterbo as the Husqvarna CH racing Frenchman took victory in all four moto to win the first two Grand Prix s of this season.

Gozzini sits in second place as he plans his comeback to victory at home in Latina. The 747 Motorsport – TM Racing Factory Superider lost the Title to Chareyre last year and is now hungry to snatch the red plate from the rival. Gozzini last GP win dates back to 2008 when the Italian won the Austrian Grand Prix, though he narrowly missed on Latina podium in 2006 as he ended fourth overall.

Husqvarna Cross 2R’s Delepine has moved up to third in the Championship courtesy of his first season’s podium in Great Britain. The Belgian took third in Mallory to come closer to the leading duo – Gozzini is only 16 points away with Chareyre being 14 points further.

Youngster Borella, who left the European series to make his World Championship debut this year, is a solid fourth in the Championship. The KTM Italia Miglio Superider took a strong fourth place in Great Britain after his debut result of eighth overall in Viterbo.

Italian countryman Gaspardone rounds off the top five in the Championship as he is just two points behind Borella.

After a troubled start to the season Iddon aims at a successful Latina outing onboard the Motoracing KTM machine.

UEM

Round three of the UEM SuperMoto European Championship will get underway this weekend with the S3 and Open classes.

Being the revelation of the season, young German Wuerterle took a podium in Mallory to defend the leader’s spot in the S3 series. Harrison grasped a home win in Great Britain to take third in the series behind Karanyotov. The Bulgarian was again second on the podium in Mallory as the current top three is spread in just 10 points.

Exploiting the misfortune of previous leader Dall’Era, who crashed in Mallory’s second moto, Monticelli grasped the lead of the Open class and is ready to go for his first season’s victory at Latina. The Italian has been second on the podium twice with Tonchev winning in Great Britain and becoming a dangerous runner up. Porfiri, round one winner Dall’Era and Sconfietti round off the top five.
