The S1 category had to surrender to the strength of the Fast Wheels ASD French rider who led his Team to the victory of the Grand Prix of Andorra and came back home really satisfied with the results grasped throughout the whole weekend.

Adrien Chareyre faced two perfect days which began with the fastest time of 00:50.828 grasped in Saturday’s time practice. Today, after starting from the Superpole he pulled away in all the races and his solid performance allowed him to be the first to take the three chequered flags. The oldest of the Chareyre brothers did not struggle too much with rivals as there was always at least one second dividing him from his pursuers: only Thomas was able to race staying close to him as the other main chaser of Adrien was Thierry Van Den Bosch but between the two there was a 3 second gap. Adrien gained one position in the Championship standings as he stole the third spot to HM Honda Racing Ivan Lazzarini.

This racing weekend was a good one as well as for the other member of the Chareyre duo, Thomas, who made the TM Factory Racing Team proud of him. After being second in the qualifying, in today’s opening race Thomas struggled with the Husqvarna Factory Finnish Mauno Hermunen and snatched him the second spot. Race 2 was a little bit more difficult for him due to a contact with Thierry Van Den Bosch at the entrance of the sky section but he greatly worked his way up and he finished the intermediate race in fourth. The TM Factory Racing member was not so lucky in the final moto as he found himself in seventh position in the first lap but never gave up till when he reached the finish line in second. Thanks to the well deserved runner up spot, Thomas is back at the top of the standings while Mauno Hermunen lost one position and is second. Now the top three is spread in four points only.

The other star of this thrilling Grand Prix of Andorra was another French contender, Thierry Van Den Bosch of the PMR H2O Team, who battled it out with Ivan Lazzarini for the fourth spot in Race 1 and his constant pace secured him the second spot in the next one. Thierry completed the third heat in third so that he rounded off the GP of Andorra podium and strengthened his fifth position in the Championship.

The three top riders came in front of Mauno Hermunen and Ivan Lazzarini who were respectively fourth and fifth, chased by Luc 1 Sylvain Bidart who grasped a solid result at the Grandvalira track.
