San Juan, 14 October 2018
The inaugural race weekend at the brand-new Argentinian circuit of “El Villicum” in San Juan draws to a close. At 2.30pm local time, in temperatures of 24C°, the penultimate race of the Supersport world championship got underway. The Team Bardahl Evan Bros. rider, who started from sixth on the grid, initially lost two positions due to an incident that occurred during lap one. He then pushed to catch up, lowering his times particularly in the second half of the race, but nineteen laps were not enough to allow Krummenacher to reach the leading group. Overall a positive race as, with the points scored today, the Swiss rider maintains third place in the championship standings, now 15 points ahead of the fourth-placed rider.
The final race of the season will take place in the evening, as is tradition at the Losail Circuit in Doha, Qatar.
Krummenacher, aware that he still has a good margin for improvement, remains positive and believes he can pick things up for the final round.
#RK21: “Today’s race was better than some of the recent ones to be honest. I still struggled off the line and particularly though the opening laps, but I’m sure that, by working with my team, we’ll be able to solve this. Once we can be fast in the early stages too, I’m convinced we’ll have all we need to get back on the podium. Overall, it’s gone well because my advantage over fourth is now 15 points, and anything can happen in Doha”.
