Husqvarna's Thomas Chareyre and Gerald Delepine on top of Greek GP

18 October 2009 - World Supermoto

Thomas Chareyre made it to his third consecutive GP win and even moved up to third in the S1 Championship, rounding off a solid weekend in Greece. Husqvarna fellow rider Delepine instead took his first season's win in the S2 class.

Lazzarini and Hiemer completed the S1 podium, with the latter being at his GP return after a severe injury. Championship leader VDB (fifth) and Hermunen (sixth) instead missed the podium for their first time this year.

Gozzini took second overall in the S2 but failed on making up ground on series leader Adrien Chareyre, taking third overall with the same amount of points as the Italian.

Massimiliano Porfiri won and snatched the Open class red plate from Monticelli. In the S3 series Karanyotov won the overall despite Janina Wuerterle won heat one.

S1-S2 RACE 1

Starting from first on the grid after winning Superpole in the morning, Thomas Chareyre again took the holeshot to lead the hungry group into the first corner. The Frenchman of Husqvarna CH Racing made sure to escape from a group tangle at the entrance of the sky section starting with the crash of Hiemer, being then hit by Gozzini. The two fell on the ground, blocking the entrance to the sky section to all riders on the inside, including Lazzarini.

That let Adrien Chareyre join his brother Thomas at the lead, with Hermunen and Delepine following as all three went by the outside of the crash. The Husqvarna parade remained in place until Hermunen went down at the turn leading into the start straight. The Finn restarted but another crash took him out of the top ten.

Thomas and Adrien Chareyre took first and second followed by Delepine while SBD Racing's Bussei kept behind a dangerous Lazzarini - the Italian of HM Honda Racing had worked his way up to fifth. Van Den Bosch and Gaspardone followed.

The S1 classification saw Thomas Chareyre take first from Bussei and Lazzarini, while Adrien Chareyre topped the S2 ahead of Delepine and Gaspardone.

S1-S2 RACE 2

Thomas Chareyre of Husqvarna CH Racing took another great start and holeshotted turn one ahead of Lazzarini and Gozzini. This time out everything went well at the entrance to the sky section but later on Gozzini moved past HM Honda Racing's Lazzarini on the start straight, taking second and chasing Chareyre for first.

747 Motorsport TM Factory Racing's Gozzini put pressure on the rock solid French who defended the top spot and eventually finished ahead of Gozzini.

Lazzarini was set on a third place finish but Hiemer's move at two laps to go dropped him down to fourth behind the German of KTM Italia Miglio.

Hermunen settled for fifth after trying to find a way past Lazzarini but left VDB behind in sixth. Delepine instead put together a steady race finishing eighth but securing the S2 overall win.

It was a troubled race for Adrien Chareyre, tangling up with Bartolini and going down at the sky section.
