World Superbike, Round 03 – Aragon, April 10, 2018
The GRT Yamaha Official WorldSSP Team enjoyed a strong Sunday in Aragon at Round 3 of the 2018 FIM Supersport World Championship. Federico Caricasulo maintained his 100% podium record in 2018 by charging to a hard-fought second-place finish after a superb ride from the 22-year-old Italian. Reigning WorldSSP Champion, Lucas Mahias, missed out on the podium for the first time in 4 races as he could not quite find the perfect setup for his R6 due to the changeable conditions experienced over the weekend. Despite this, he fought his way to a battling fourth-place finish to retake the overall Championship lead. It was a disappointing end to a truly promising debut in the European Supersport Cup for Alfonso Coppola. After impressing throughout the weekend, he crashed out on the opening lap of the race at the first corner through no fault of his own.
