CHARPENTIER THE CHAMPION

Sebastien Charpentier (Winston Ten Kate Honda) won both the Magny-Cours race and the 2006 World Supersport Championship after a stunningly dramatic afternoon of action in his home country of France. The 22-lap race was delayed because of the late finish to SBK Race One, and as Charpentier and Kenan Sofuoglu (Winston Ten Kate Honda) led the running order in the early laps, the championship leader, Kevin Curtain, fell on lap eight. Curtain needed to finish only eighth in the race to win the series, but Charpentier was now clear to win both race and title - and did so in some style, from second placed Sofuoglu and Broc Parkes, Curtain's team-mate. In taking his second title in as many years, Charpentier made history by becoming the first rider to score back-to-back WSS title wins.

Charpentier finished on a points total of 194, Curtain an eventual second on 187 and Sofuoglu went third overall, on 157. Between them, the Winston Ten Kate Honda riders scored eight poles, eight wins and Charpentier scored the fifth straight Riders' Championship for Honda and the team.

I'm sad for Kev Curtain, but it's good to see the 600RR so dominant! I think Sofuoglu is definitely one to watch. And will Charpentier & Curtain get Superbike rides now? Maybe Charpentier will get the second Ten Kate 'Blade? I LOVE silly season! ;)

I really don't believe the comment I made, it's just ironic that the same thing essentially happens to Nicky and he doesn't deserve the title.

Sebi can ride his ass off, just wish he would move on to bigger and better things.

Just stirring the pot :)

One quick question: Who are "they" supposed to be?

Anyway, Honda has always done well in WSS. Why? Because the rules allow teams to modify the HELL out of 600cc machines. If that wasn't the case, then the Honda would be in last place just like in AMA supersport where everyone agrees that it can't cut it because the stock 600rr is a slow, fat pig when compared to the rest. I think Honda has won WSS for at least 3 years in a row with Ten Kate (I think past champs include Muggeridge, Vermeulen, Foret).


Sebas got VERY lucky - nothing else. The rest of the season was him being skillful, but at Magny-Cours he got really lucky that Curtain crashed. Freak crash if you ask me. I mean, all he needed was 8th! He obviously wasn't pushing it so it must've been a freak accident.

On another note, it's awesome to see Josh Hayes win the AMA FX title on a near-factory Erion Honda. Way to stick it to those true factory riders.

You never cease to amaze me with your infinite wisdom. The current 600rr is only a few pounds heavier than the new r6 and LIGHTER than the current gsxr600.

Honda choose to focus on superbike in AMA and only run 2 riders. Next year,like in 2003-2004 Erion will be a factory supported team in 600ss.

And on another note a supersport prepped bike is allowed a minimum weight in race trim. Remove all the gagbage and street trim and the old (2003-2004)600rr had no problem dropping the extra weight to make race trim.

And Honda has OWNED the 600 calss in ama supersport.

As far as Sebi goes he missed afew rounds and was still in the title hunt,Curtain was the lucky one first because if Sebi wasnt hurt he would have still been getting his ass handed to him in 600ss.

Since when??? how about 1987???????????????


Yet to run in 600 supersport????


You guys freakin kill me..Like said,Honda OWNS Ama 600 supersport racing.



In 2003 the 600rr had 3 race wins from Duhamel,Roberts and Zemke


http://www.hondanews.com/CatID7137?mid=2003090272347&mime=asc


In 1987, the wind of change blew across the sport bike landscape like a hurricane. And it would forever alter the way sport riders the world over defined performance.

Honda's Hurricane 600 was the quickest and most powerful middleweight ever made, and it blew away the existing standards of the 600 class. But that wasn't what made the Hurricane so special. Here was a machine that balanced the disparate demands of the street and the track with a finesse no sport bike had before.

The formula was unbeatable. Honda's Hurricane topped the sales charts, and won every single AMA 600 SuperSport race in its debut season. The remarkable CBR(R)600 would become the winningest 600 in the history of AMA racing, and the best-selling middleweight sport bike ever made.

Technology has changed since the Hurricane first blew away the competition 15 years ago. The very best of Honda's technology once again redefines the upper limit of middleweight sport bike performance in the radical new 2001 CBR600F4i.

Packed with innovations, the CBR600F4i wraps its aluminum chassis around a potent fuel-injected inline-four engine. Yet despite the F4's class-leading performance, this CBR is forged by the same philosophy that guided the original Hurricane 600 and the entire line of CBR600s that followed: that it provide all-around ability and street civility to match its incredible performance.

With the all-new CBR600F4i, Honda once again strikes the perfect balance of poise and power.

1987

Originally named the Hurricane 600, the CBR600F debuted in 1987, the same year that saw the beginning of the AMA's 600 SuperSport class. The Hurricane made it a clean sweep, winning all nine races and easily taking the title. SuperSport Champion Doug Polen set the class' first win record, with seven victories in a row.

1988

The Hurricane blows through the 600 SuperSport field once again, winning six of the series' nine events--including the season opener at Daytona--and finishing second overall in the class.

1991

The introduction of the all-new CBR600F2 meets with instant racing success; the new bike cleans house in the 600 SuperSport class with victories in all nine events. Class champion Miguel Duhamel takes his first 600 SuperSport title, winning seven races, including five in a row.

1992

The F2's domination continues, as Honda pilots fly to eight victories in the nine-race 600 SuperSport series. Class champion Tom Kipp wins three events.

1994

In its last year, the CBR600F2 shows it still has what it takes, winning six of the SuperSport series' 10 races with rider Mike Smith on board. Smith places second overall in the class.

1995

The new CBR600F3 follows the pattern set by its predecessors: new bike, total domination, another title. The F3 wins all 11 races, taking Miguel Duhamel to his second 600 Supersport Championship with the Honda team, and third of his career. Duhamel also starts his historic run of 10 consecutive race wins, taking eight in a row.

1996

Duhamel and his F3 snare another title, his second consecutive one and the fourth of his career. CBR600F3 riders win eight of the 11 races, with Duhamel taking six events, including three consecutive wins.

1997

Miguel Duhamel bags his third consecutive 600 SuperSport title, the fifth of his career, and the CBR600's sixth. The F3 romps to victory five times with Duhamel in the saddle, including three wins in a row.

1999

Following an injury-shortened racing season in 1998, a still-on-the-mend Miguel Duhamel guides his new CBR600F4 to an incredible last-lap-pass to win the 1999 season opener at Daytona. In the hands of a young but amazingly talented rising star, Erion Racing's Nicky Hayden, the newly christened Honda F4 surges ahead to win five more races and capture the 600 SuperSport title.

2000

The heat gets turned up higher in the hotly contested 600 class as yet another young lion, Kurtis Roberts, earns the pole position in 2000 at Daytona on his Erion Racing F4 Honda. He then squeaks out another nail-biter victory with the same last-lap drafting maneuver Duhamel had used the year before. Robert's flair for drama--and his nose for the checkers--continues through the season and into the final race, where a last-lap, last-turn pass gives Kurtis the victory at Willow Springs and the 600 SuperSport Championship for 2000.

2001

Riding Honda's new fuel-injected CBR600F4i, MIGUEL DUHAMEL pads his reputation as the winningest 600 SuperSport rider in history. The duo take three race victories, pushing Duhamel's total in the class to 40, and he finishes the season third in points.

2003

Following a year's hiatus, Team Honda returns to the class with MIGUEL DUHAMEL, the winningest 600 Supersport rider ever, mounted on the incredible 2003 Honda CBR600RR, a bike designed for the track using current MotoGP technology.

Sofuoglo is going to be a force next year. Sebastian is looking for a 1000cc ride so he may end up next to Toseland next year leaving Kenan to be the lead WSS rider for Ten Kate.

That is an ignorant statement..Have you ever being involved in ''any'' form of competition??? That is all part of racing..Let me guess... Hayden doesn't deserve to be leading the championship either...
