Latest post of the previous page:Markus Reiterberger became the final Superstock 1000 champion at Magny-Cours yesterday after it was announced that the series will be canned from 2019 after 19 years of running. He was close to throw it away though but ultimately secured 3rd place and the title.
In World Supersport 300 Ana Carrasco became the first female rider to win a singles road racing championship by one point after a cracking race and a bonkers final lap. Early leader and best bet for the championship Scott Deroue had a mechanical halfway through which left Mike Perez the big chance of the title if he would finish one or two. Ana Carrasco had problems all weekend long and started from 25th only. Her progress looked like coming to a halt midway when she was stuck in 19th position but a couple dnf's in front of her made life a bit easier. Still she would have had to finish in tenth position, given that Perez finished either one or two. With the final starting, Ana was up to 13th but far away from the 10th place target but Perez needed to win now. In what was a bonkers final lap, with position changes all around, Mike Perez lost out in the battle for 1st while Ana Carrasco made another position on the run towards the finish line for 12th and championship securing position, by one single point. For almost 3/4th of the following lap back in she seemingly thought that she lost it until someone pointed it out her.
In the world supersport 600 race, which was concurrently run with the European Supersport Championship, Dutchman Rob Hartog secured the ESS title.
In WSB, Johnny Rea won both races and became the most successfull wsb rider by victories and championships from Carl Fogarty.
