Charriol-sponsored, World Superbike Championship rider Loris Baz won Race One of Round Ten of the World SBK 2012 Championship. The race, which took place on the 5th of August, saw the 19-year-old become the second youngest rider to ever win at this level.
Hard weather conditions led many riders like Max Biaggi and Jonathan Reato to crash. French rider Sylvain Guintoli took the victory in Race Two, followed by Loris Baz and Jakub Smrz who took 2nd and 3rd places, respectively.
Loris’ season is shaping up to be a good one as the young Frenchman continues to write his own legend.
