France's Thomas Chareyre of TM Factory Racing won the Supermoto GP of Croatia on Sunday (8th July).
Five thousand spectators watched as France's Thomas Chareyre won the Supermoto GP of Croatia on Sunday (8th July).
Thomas Chareyre was dominant in the Supermoto GP of Croatia and won all three races, his cause was helped by the fact that Finland's Mauno Hermunen injured his left wrist during free practice on Saturday, which hindered his performance on Sunday.
Chareyre beat Hermunen in the first race and the defending world champion Adrien Chareyre was third.
The second race saw Hermunen take an early lead, but he was overtaken on the sixth lap by Thomas Chareyre, who held on to the lead until the chequered flag on the 20th lap.
Hermunen finished second, with Adrien Chareyre once again in third position.
Race three followed the same pattern as the second one, Hermunen once again went in front, but was eventually overhauled by Thomas Chareyre on the fifth lap.
Thomas Chareyre clinched his third race win of the day, with Hermunen just behind him, this time followed by the Italian Ivan Lazzarini in third.
The Supermoto GP of Croatia win meant that Thomas Chareyre, a former World Champion, extended his lead at the top of the overall standings to thirty-one points ahead of second-placed Hermunen.
The next race takes place in Lignieres, Switzerland on August 19th.
