The new team Yoshimura SERT Motul won the championship in their first race. This SUZUKI factory team won an outstanding victory in the 24 Heures Motos in 2021. This is their first race since they formed the team, so come to interview and review those who have won.
The Suzuki Endurance Racing Team (SERT) has not won the 24 Heures Motos at home since 2015, and this time the victory was not entirely SERT, but the new French-Japanese joint army Yoshimura SERT Motul. Behind their success are the skills of Yoshimura Suzuki, who has won the Suzuka 8-resistant champion four times, and the experience of SERT, who has 18 FIM EWC World Endurance Championship titles.
“Yoshimura strives to optimize the GSX-R1000R,” said Damien Saulnier, Yoshimura SERT Motul team manager. “Everything from the fuel tank to the swingarm, there is a new fork and some small things, such as a handle switch that makes it easier for the rider to operate.
I am proud of this new partnership. We know we have a chance to fight, but I won’t believe that we will have no problems throughout the game. I have rarely experienced an ideal game like this one. It means that we can avoid taking risks to make up for lost time on the track. “
“This is a victory for Yoshimura and SERT, as well as a victory for SUZUKI,” Yoshimura Technical Director Yohei Kato said. “Although we are under a lot of pressure, our success on 24 Heures Motos is the best reward for our hard work. This amazing victory is very important! SERT gave us first place, and our goal is obviously to keep it in this highly competitive tournament in 2021.”
It’s also the first time for a driver
Gregg Black, Xavier Simeon and Sylvain Guintoli have never won 24 Heures Motos, so this victory is significant. “This victory is very important to all of us,” Sylvain Guintoli said. “This is the first match between SERT and Yoshimura. It is also my first match as a member of the team. It is very important to perform well from the beginning. We are now Knowing that we are very competitive and will enjoy the rest of the season.
There are many indispensable factors behind this victory: the rich experience of SERT and Yoshimura, who have developed this racing car in the Suzuka 8 resistant in the past 3 years, Bridgestone tires have performed well, and my teammate Gregg Black, Xavier Simeon, they brought their experience to the game, and their suggestions helped me a lot because this was my first 24-hour game.
Although I have participated in many 8-hour endurance races, the 24-hour race is really different. I thought it would be tough, but it was much tougher than I thought, and the weather conditions this time were very good. Gregg and Xavier told me that the situation will be worse if it is cold or when it rains.
Endurance races need to communicate and cooperate with teammates and every team member to complete the 24-hour difficult race. Although physically and mentally exhausted, I like this kind of race very much. “
Xavier Simeon also regarded the cohesion of the team as the reason for the victory. “This is a very important victory, because after the cooperation between SERT and Yoshimura and the replacement of Bridgestone tires, the team has received a lot of attention, so everyone It was under a lot of pressure, but because of the organization and the incredible team atmosphere, everything went smoothly in the end.
The arrival of Sylvain Guintoli is also a big help for the team. His speed is obviously a big advantage for him. He is a predator, but he also knows his limits. And now the endurance race is about speed and stability. In the event, Sylvain as a teammate can encourage us to go faster. “
“He is an experienced driver, he has contributed his experience and strength,” Gregg Black said. “It is interesting to hear his comments and his way of working. We all enjoy the race. We don’t want to be the best in the team. We just want to win the race, and we did.
The first 24-hour endurance race is very important. As we saw when we won at Bol d’Or last season, it allows the team to get high championship points and puts pressure on other teams. We want to be here. Achieving good results and getting high scores, now we have an advantage in the annual championship rankings, but we must continue to work hard. “
Yoshimura SERT Motul will take a 16-point lead to the 12 Hours of Estoril in Portugal on July 17 (Saturday).
