A tough Stock1000 race for Althea BMW at Magny-Cours

1-10-2017

Nevers (France), Sunday 1 October 2017

The penultimate round of the Superstock 1000 championship concluded today at the French track of Nevers Magny-Cours. For the Althea riders, it proved to be a tough one that saw Marco Faccani cross the line in eleventh place, Julian Puffe (Althea MF84) thirteenth.


 




From the fifth row, Faccani maintained his position, thirteenth, through the opening laps. Moving up two places through the central phase of the race, Marco was pushing to close the gap that had opened between him and those immediately ahead of him but unfortunately he was unable to do more than eleventh. Puffe, 21st on the grid, made up a great deal of ground in the first two laps, moving up into 14th place on lap three. A constant pace allowed him to earn one more position during the latter stages, before crossing the line in thirteenth place.

After this penultimate championship round, Marco Faccani lies eighth in the general standings with 61 points, while Julian Puffe is thirteenth with 23 points. The two riders will be back on track, at Jerez in Spain, for the final round of the championship taking place over the weekend of 20-22 October.


"A very difficult race today. Starting further back meant I got caught up with the other guys and lost too much time during the first three or four laps. After that I tried to push to catch at least those guys right ahead of me but unfortunately I didn’t have time to do more than eleventh. A difficult weekend, we’ve taken a few points and now look ahead to the next race, which I hope goes better.”
