DEPUTY WORLD CHAMPIONS
The last round of the Enduro World Championship was raced last weekend in Brioude, France and for the TM Racing Factory Team the trip to France has been very positive.
In the E1 class the final objective was the attainment of the second place by Eero Remes and despite a not very positive weekend for our finnish rider the objective has been achieved, however, with as many as twenty points.
Positive weekend for Aigar Leok that in the E3 class wins two fourth places and finishes in the final standings on the fifth place. A good result after a start of season under tone and with some ailment too much for our Estonian rider who was able to recover the shape and points in the standings.
Great race for the Chilean rider Benjamin Herrera on both days of the race rose to the podium, second and third place, winning her third place overall in the Youth Cup class.
“We have reached the second place overall in the E1 class and I’m very happy for the result. ”To say the truth the objective of the beginning ofseason was to succeed in winning the world title, I have lost during the year some point but I will retry there next year.
“A good weekend and I think about having raced a good competition giving my best. The race was tough and demanding, and the two fourth places obtained are a good result. “
“The race of Brioude has been challenging and very difficult but I was able to express myself better and in many special tests I got the best time and for this I definitely thank the whole team. A third and a second place here in France and third place in the Youth Cup class. I would say a good season. “
Lommel – The final round of the European Championship was hellish ride in the sand of Lommel, Samuele Bernardini came to the race with a lead of 34 points over his closest rival Marco Maddii, many, but on the races you never know, so Samuele was decided to conquer the headline immediately without waiting for the first round too.
Determined and strong for the pole position lap in the morning, Samuele snaps like a bolt from the starting gate conquering the command from the first corner and immediately puts a margin of 5 seconds between him and his pursuer English Gregory Lewis, Samuel continues to pull all the heat so you can stay focused and crossed the finish line Victorious.
The whole team takes him in triumph tossing it into the air to celebrate the victory of a championship newborn but very successful.
SAMU!!! THANK YOU! AND THANK YOU TO ALL THE GUYS THAT WORK EVERY DAY IN TM RACING GIVING 100% TO ACHIEVE THESE OBJECTIVES.
The second GP season in Brazil is over in the state of Goias in Trindade, Team Ricci Racing comes to this race with only Davide Guarneri, Tanel Leok failed to recover from injury and Christopher Valente is still recovering.
The track that was built specifically for this race had learned very fast and a very technical.
Davide Guarneri found himself immediately at ease on this track from the first free practice, lap saw him close with the seventh fastest time.
At the start of the qualifying heats Davide started strong, taking the first positions, until a few laps from the end Guarneri was in third position but do not squeeze at the bottom of all the energy has upped the pace and finished seventh.
In race 1 exceptional departure for the “Pota” Guarneri, too bad during the first round is dropped, the strong Italian driver had to stop in the pits to fix his bike, broken in last position ended in 12th place.
Excellent result that makes moral to the whole team.
Davide Guarneri comments on the race: “I am very happy with the race, we were able to quickly find the right setting of the bike and I went strong in qualifying, too bad the first run where I fell, a part of the track was not wet and because of the dust, I found myself on the ground, excellent second run where I’ve always been very fast, now we think we do well in Mexico. “

We are pleased to announce the TM Racing range for 2014 and here is a brief rundown highlighting some of the changes to models in the range. Once again TM Racing will be producing a full range of Motocross, Enduro, Supermotard Racing and Supermotard Street variants all available with a choice of different capacity 2-Stroke and 4-Stroke engines.
The ‘all new for 2013′ 85cc MX machine has taken the world by storm and this absolutely stunning looking bike with its unmatched high specification of standard production components and performance only receives minor updates for 2014. These updates include a new piston design with changes to both the cylinder configuration and engine set-up. These changes make for better engine performance and longevity in the harshest conditions. New suspension settings also feature for both the front forks and the rear shock absorber with adjustments to shim settings, oil weights and volumes and shock gas pressures, all working together to give a much better progression to the suspension units of both the small wheel and big wheel variants. The machine also receives a fresh look with a new decal kit in an Italian theme.
125cc / 144cc.
The already well proven TMEES 125cc / 144cc engine has also been treated to a thorough overhaul, the original 2012 125cc TMEES engine received a major overhaul for 2013 including new crankcases with a revised induction angle for the V-Force reed block. A new air boot and air filter system. New exhaust system and a new main bearing set-up to reduce drag and increase engine responsiveness, in 2013 the 144cc engine was also revised to these specifications. For 2014 TM Racing have yet again increased the performance of these incredible engines and have found gains in both power and torque across the rev range with an all new twin-ring piston design which increases compression stability with less blow-by under extreme conditions, new cylinder port timing to maximise the potential of the new piston and new exhaust valve pulleys fitted with new larger diameter command cables to increase the performance and reliability of the TMEES system, all working harmoniously with new carburetion settings. The chassis also features some revisions and these include a new triple clamp offset combined with new forks and shock settings to enhance bike stability and turning making for a better handling package, in the aesthetics department there is a new decal kit and matching seat cover once again following an Italian design.
The mighty 2 stroke flagships of the TM Racing range have now been brought in line with the 125cc and 85cc engine induction alterations, after both receiving the new air boot and air filter design in 2013 the large capacity 2-Stroke engines have been re-worked and feature a new crankcase design with a rotated V-Force reed block position, this is matched to a new inlet manifold with altered carburetion settings these changes, now combined with the 2013 intake system, maximise throttle response and engine performance across the rev range. As the 125 the 250cc / 300cc machines chassis feature similar revisions, again these include a new triple clamp offset combined with new forks and shock settings to enhance bike stability and turning making for a better handling package, in the aesthetics department there is a new decal kit and matching seat cover once again following an Italian design.
The stunning TM Racing 250Fi machines will also receive some changes for 2014 and after having months of testing at the highest levels of competition in the MX and Enduro World Championships the latest updates to the 250Fi engines come from development of the TM Factory Racing Teams. The 2014 engine will receive a new piston with an all new crown design for better burn control, power output and efficiency when combined with the new cylinder head shape with altered volumes. New EFI mapping settings for both ignition timing control and fuel injection control work in tune with the new head and piston arrangement to increase power and torque for a large part of the rev range and these changes are different for both MX and Enduro variants too. Both the MX and Enduro engines have unique pistons and head profile variants to give the performance required for each discipline, on the MX engine and new inlet camshaft profile and a new larger diameter throttle body feature and increase the performance values even further to suit the harsher nature of Motocross. Whilst the Enduro engine retains the smaller throttle body and ‘relaxed’ camshaft profiling to give a smother, broader power output better suited to the required conditions found in Enduro. Once again the same changes feature on the chassis department, these include a new triple clamp offset combined with new forks and shock settings to enhance bike stability and turning making for a better handling package, in the aesthetics department there is a new decal kit and matching seat cover once again following an Italian design.
The mighty 450cc engine has once again proven to be a world beater in many disciplines and for 2014 the philosophy is simple, small changes. For 2014 the 450cc engine receives only minor alterations to ignition timing and fuel control via the ECU and a small change to the piston design to enhance burn control and efficiency. The already immensely powerful and torque laden engine required little in the way of more performance and simple alterations have just improved its responsiveness at lower rpm’s and facilitated easier starting on the conventional kickstart variants. As with the rest of the TM Racing range the chassis receives the same changes, these include a new triple clamp offset combined with new forks and shock settings to enhance bike stability and turning making for a better handling package, in the aesthetics department there is a new decal kit and matching seat cover once again following an Italian design.

After the good start of the International Series in Viterbo, Tm Racing Team and Thomas Chareyre came to Limatola circuit to defend the World Champion title.
This first round of the World Championship took place on the track of Limatola, a very beautiful structure. Unfortunately, on Saturday, the weather was rainy all the day long.
In the Time Practice, Thomas Chareyre couldn’t find the right feeling with the wet track and because of an excessive use of the rear tyre he didn’t succeed in finishing better than 13th.
On Sunday morning, a warm sun was shining on the track and Thomas Chareyre aimed at catching up as many positions as possible. In the Warm Up, Thomas got the first fast lap time.
In the first heat, Thomas started really well and in the first lap he was 5th and with an incredible pace he recovered positions up to 2nd.
In the second heat, the French rider started really fast and in the first lap he was second and he did his best to catch up Hermunen but he had a good margin and Thomas finished 2nd.
Thomas was on the podium in this first GP, but maybe he’s not totally satisfied with his performance in the Time Practice.
Now a long break before the second round of the International Series in Latina, on 18th-19th May.
