The Frenchman, Pastorello was behind his team mate, Sylvain, for most of the time and then by using a little trick he got some extra speed and managed to finish first.
Greek Rider Akis Malouchos finished third to give Kawasaki 1-2-3 results in the F1 class.
Two inexperienced Greek riders, Heliopoulos and Vassilakis finished 7th and 8th respectively on their Kawasaki Jet Ski in this moto which was a great achievement for both of them.
Top speed wise Jean-Bruno Pastorello was the fastest rider out there on Saturday morning and his Kawasaki Ultra 300X clocked 119 km/h with an engine that had 35 hours of racing operation under its belt (4 big events before Akropolis Jet Raid).
The 3rd fastest rider was Akis Malouchos aboard his Kawasaki Ultra 300X. He was clocked at 113 km/h on Saturday morning.
A 45 minute closed course race marked the final countdown of the Akropolis Jet Raid and actually put the riders in a unique challenge, since they had to judge their speed in order to control the fuel consumption. Frenchman Jean-Bruno Pastorello and his team mate Belgium’s Sylvain Ente dominated in the Akropolis Jet Raid and until the final Moto showed their true professionalism by winning 1-2 in the Overall Standing as well as in the F1 Class.
However, Greek multi-National Champion, Akis Malouchos proved that he is not only the ace of closed course racing but also that he can play a key role in Off-Shore Endurance racing by climbing to third position in the F1 Class. He is the first Greek rider who ever tops the podium of the Akropolis Jet Raid and the second that finishes in any Jet Raid International event.
Olivier Vidal and Labas were the in the lead of F2 Class from Day 1 and they managed to keep a good pace the last two days that placed them in 3rd place in the Overall Standings.
Pastorello lapped every single rider in the afternoon more than two times except for Sylvain, Malouchos and Vidal who were lapped only once. He was the fastest rider in the course and he was not running in ECO mode as some of the riders assumed. Most Kawasaki and Sea-Doo riders were running with their fuel biper on for about four laps.
Kawasaki dominated the event for the second consecutive year by topping all three places of the podium in F1 Class and also by winning the F2 Class too.
A great result for the Ultra 300X which is a musclecraft initially designed for recreational use. The machine incorporates a totally different engine from its predecessor. However, Team Pastorello has done a great job on evaluating certain parts and increasing the durability and the reliability of the new Kawasaki power plant.
