After an intense and long season of racing, the 2018 World Cup for UNNO Factory Racing came to a close in La Bresse, France. Once again the weather proved to be a major factor both in training and racing, with a torrential downpour that made the track treacherous right from the qualifying runs, with Greg Williamson playing it safe to move on to the finals in 24th position, while unfortunately Taylor Vernon didn’t make the cut to Saturday’s big show. Once finals started, the weather started playing tricks again, and while the early runs took place on a very muddy, and still wet track, as finals went on the same mud started getting thicker and heavier, slowing down many considerably.
This didn’t seem to phase Greg, who, until the last corner, was on a stormer of a run, passing the last split in 4th position, a time that could have earned him a top-10 or even a podium spot – but unfortunately luck wasn’t on his side, and Greg slid out losing valuable time. However this first World Cup season for UNNO Factory Racing has been a great and successful learning experience for the whole team and also for everyone involved in the brand, with many lessons learned that will enable UNNO to develop its bikes even further.
