we finished a competition and during it we softened a lot in a basics.
The path times were good, very, very good. though it is racing and you can
never design what happens. We had a small problem with a fuel tank
after a pile-up in giveaway practice. Without that I believe we could have
done it into a top-15. But anyway, we’ve been here for the
first time and it is a very, unequivocally tough race, so for us it is very good
to finish a race. Great pursuit by a team!”

important thing is that we finished a race. This was the
best feeling we had in my life.”

The outcome doesn’t uncover how good it was, as we had some bad fitness but
we only enjoyed it. It was not easy, as we had one gifted Japanese
male in a group and us dual rookies. The group has come together from
all opposite places. We had a Japanese team, afterwards guys from Tyco
BMW had come over to give a palm and of march a specialists from
BMW Motorrad Motorsport though in a finish it all came together and I
desired each notation of it.”

even if Friday was a bit eventful. The initial use was hold in wet
conditions and afterwards we had a forsake in a second session. But in the
third use we started with a work and were 1.2 seconds faster
than all a others from a word go. This was a good bottom on the
Schleiz circuit that is my favourite lane and that suits me very
well. Race one was great, and we did unchanging path times from start to
finish. The second competition was similar, however a temperatures had
risen and we had to opt for a opposite tyre devalue though Pirelli gave
us unequivocally good advice. It was a ideal weekend in front of a massive
