FIM e-Power International Championship Qualifications in Imola
Two MÃ¼nch ahead of de Ridder (Crystayte)
Stefano Scrocchi and Matthias Himmelmann (MÃ¼nch RT) topped the qualifications in Imola, final race of the FIM E-Power International Championship. They are leading Thijs de Ridder (Crystalyte Europe) who has the firm intention to beat the championship leader Italian Thomas Betti.
"We tested some new settings during these qualifications but they didn't work out, says Thomas Betti. We will start tomorrow's race with a different configuration". With the first e-Power crown being at stake in Imola, there is a narrow thirteen points gap only between Betti and de Ridder.
They will also have to watch the performance of other competitors such as German Christian Amendt (Epo-Bike.de) who are perfectly capable of jumping into the top three.
The six laps race (approximately 30 km) will start at 14 pm 30 for just before the second race of the FIM Superbike World Championship.
