Vertemati’s historic Supermoto double

Posted:

Italy's Max Manzo has taken Vertemati to victory at round 8 of the Supermoto World Championship at Sachsenring, Germany on the September 21.

"It is very historic for a small factory like Vertemati to get the first two positions in the race. Vertemati have made a good bike that has performed well for this GP. Thank you to my team" Manzo said

Under clear skies over 13,500 enthusiastic German moto-heads witnessed an enthralling race. Manzo inherited the lead following a mistake by race leader, Eddy Seel (BEL-Husqvarna), on the eighteenth lap. Pursued by his team-mate Gerald Delepine (BEL-Vertemati) the two quickly opened up a gap back to the rest of the field. As the laps wound down Manzo managed to keep Delepine at bay to record the win and register a historic one-two for the Vertemati factory. Current championship leader, Jurgen Kunzel (GER-KTM) grabbed the last spot on the podium to extend his FIM S1 Supermoto World Championship lead. KTM's Boris Chambon finished in fourth ahead of young Bernd Hiemer (GER-Zupin Husqvarna).

The combination of the days results mean that Jurgen Kunzel (GER-KTM) 275, extends his FIM S1 Supermoto World Championship lead over Boris Chambon (FRA-KTM) 262, Eddy Seel (BEL-Husqvarna) 225, Ivan Lazzarini (ITA-Rigo Husaberg) 188 and Max Manzo (ITA-Vertemati) 184.
