Jeremy Van Horebeek with the points gained in Maggiora is in tenth position in the world rankings.

The next round is on July 18th on the Oss track in the Netherlands.

Daniele Marchese Team Manager: ”Positive day for our team here in Maggiora, Jeremy did not have a good qualifying because we could not find a good setting to have a good position at the gate and this complicated the two heats for us. However, thanks to a gritty and determined driving in race 1 from over the twentieth position he finished eleventh and in race 2 despite the mud he finished 10th. Good performance also for Jimmy who collected the first points in the world championship also considering his young age. The result is positive in line with the two previous races and now we are moving to Oss in the Netherlands for the first race on the sand.”
