A fantastic Catalan Grand Prix put a stylish end to the 2009 FIM Supermoto season handing the titles to Van Den Bosch and Adrien Chareyre and the GP wins to Thomas Chareyre and Delepine in front of a healthy crowd.

Thierry van den Bosch suffered a crash during warm-up but returned to finish the races a solid fifth-overall.
Thierry van den Bosch had a rough start to the weekend. VDB had a warm-up crash and then had to start Race 1 from 16th on the grid, but he took fifth-overall and won his fourth Championship Title.

Thomas Chareyre took victory in both moto’s but lost the Title from VDB eventually. Lazzarini was second both on the podium and in the Championship while Seel completed the S1 rostrum.

Delepine won the S2 Grand Prix from Burkhart and Bartolini while Adrien Chareyre wrapped up the Title already at the end of heat one.

In the European series Hochedez won this last S3 round while Karanyotov grasped the Title. In the Open class it was Porfiri who took the Title with gallantry as he won this Catalan round.

S1-S2 RACE 1
Starting off from first on the grid after his Superpole win, Husqvarna CH Racing’s Thomas Chareyre led the pack into the first corner followed by Gozzini and Lazzarini. The smart Frenchman pulled away at the beginning of the race while the two Italians battled for second and took a well deserved win.

Lazzarini of HM Honda Racing was an eventual second but could not manage to close the gap from Chareyre despite his efforts.

Gozzini settled for third on his 747 Motorsport TM Factory Racing machine after losing the runner-up spot from Lazzarini. On the other hand his team mate Van Den Bosch, leading the S1 Championship, made up for a warm-up lap crash at the sky section with ninth in the combined standings. VDB had started from 16th on the grid after a disastrous qualifying and found himself with a shorter advantage over Chareyre and Lazzarini.

Delepine brought the bike home in fourth ahead of Hermunen, Seel and a strong Bartolini.

The end of the opening heat saw Husqvarna CH Racing’s Adrien Chareyre wrap up his third World Title by taking an eventual seventh in the S2 dedicated standings. The Frenchman was in trouble when he stalled the bike at the sky section but sealed the Title anyhow as he entered the race with a 46 point advantage.

Thomas Chareyre stood on top of the S1 standings followed by Lazzarini and Hermunen. Gozzini won the S2 heat from Delepine and Bartolini.

Seel ended right after, moving past Verderosa and eventually Bartolini, overtaking the latter at the last lap along the start straight.
