Pela takes the lead in the championship of France
After a world in Italy a little complicated, I wanted to reassure myself and take the opportunity to take points to Jeremy Tarroux in the championship standings. Saturday, I fell early in the day but I recovered well and I win with 17 seconds in advance. Sunday, in the rain, the fight was hot with Jeremy. I win in the last stage for 2 seconds and I take the same head of the provisional. Thanks to our victories this weekend, we win the constructor’s classification and we return to equal points with KTM in the championship.
Pela loses provisional in Italy
The results are disappointing but they are the hazards of motorsports. Saturday, I had a good day behind Salminen and Guerrero. They were faster than me in the line and I could not hang them. Saturday night, I went back on the line and it paid off because on the first clock on Sunday, I was at the same time as them. As I was faster in the other two stages, I took the lead early in the second lap. In the next line, I attacked to keep my lead but I derailed in the rocks and the chain got stuck. I managed to help myself but lost more than 4 minutes. I continued to take a few points. I lose the head of provisional for 4 points. The next two grand prizes are on Salminen lands, we’ll have to go to the polls to get the victory.
