Strong of its past in World Super sport, the Team Gil Motor Sport is deciding to engage in the 2021 championship WSBK.
A team of experience has been built up around the pilot Christophe Ponsson who has all the qualities required to have a good season in the World Superbike.
To do this, it was necessary to have the partnership of a manufacturer and very quickly it was obvious that it was with Yamaha since the rider Christophe Ponsson is coming out of 3 seasons on Yamaha YZF-R1 in the Spanish Superbike Championship where he finished Vice-Champion in 2019.
We have acquired two Yamaha YZF-R1 Competition Client 2021 and are surrounded by four experienced technicians, supervised by Chief Mechanic Lucio Gomes with 28 years of experience in WSBK.
In mid-January, the Gil Motor Sport-Yamaha team will take possession of its two 2021 YZF-R1s and head for its first tests.
Hoping that the story we are starting to write in WSBK will give the French a boost of enthusiasm as it has been 13 years since there was no permanent French team in the World Superbike.
