(versione italiana in basso)

KULLAS, LIEROP, GP OF BENELUX


At last in the GP of Benelux, top rookie rider HARRI KULLAS reached the pick of his season with an extraordinary 5th place in the overall standings riding two top races on the most difficult track of the world championship circus. KULLAS had two great starts and he was the holeshot man in the second moto getting more and more confidence on his fast YZ250F bike! With a 7th and 5th finishing places Kullas is now still in the top 10 of the world series and the 310 points scored so far is a great success for his first rookie season. KULLAS is showing at every GP an improving form which allows him to battle with all the top riders.

French rider CHRISTOPHE CHARLIER experienced a very difficult weekend with a complicated qualifying race on the Saturday which obliged the corse to take the starts of the GP on a very far side. On the second moto, after a very bad start, CHARLIER was on his way from the 30th place to 10th when 4 laps before the end his engine accused electrical problems and forced him to retire.

The last GP of the season will be held next weekend on the renewed italian circuit of Fermo.


Harri Kullas, Yamaha Monster Energy Gariboldi, 5th:

“Yesterday we had problems but everybody worked really hard and things went much better today, the bike was awesome and I got good starts. I had a good battle with Tonus at the end of the first moto for sixth but he was just a bit stronger. I was really happy with my first holeshot in the second moto and it felt great to lead, if only for a little bit! Roczen, Musquin and Paulin passed me but they were so strong and fast so I let them go and focussed on my own race and speed to take fifth. To be fifth overall means this is my best GP. It was hard but really enjoyable and I have to thank my mechanic and the team who did a good job yesterday



FANTASTICO TOP 5 PER KULLAS A LIEROP !!!


Finalmente nel Gran Premio del Benelux è arrivato un grande risultato per il giovane finlandese HARRI KULLAS che ha colto il miglior piazzamento della sua prima stagione mondiale con un 5° posto finale assoluto ! Kullas ha trovato due grandi partenze e specialmente in gara 2 usciva alla prima curva in testa al plotone degli scatenati piloti della MX2 in sella alla sua sempre più performante YZ250F. Con un 7° e un 5° posto di manche KULLAS si conferma nella top 10 di campionato mondiale e con una forma in crescendo che gli consente ormai di lottare con i migliori piloti ad ogni gara.

Il francese Christophe CHARLIER ha invece avuto un weekend travagliato con una negativa manche di qualifica al sabato che ha condizionato il suo Gran Premio. Con una posizione di partenza sempre all’esterno era difficile per il corso trovare uno spiraglio. In gara 2 dopo un’ottima rimonta dalla 30a posizione fino alla 10a doveva purtroppo subire uno stop dovuto alla parte elettrica che lo costringeva quindi all’abbandono a quattro giri dal termine.

Il prossimo weekend Gran Premio di chiusura della stagione mondiale in Italia sul rinnovato impianto di Fermo.
