Blog | Peetu Paavilainen putting in two good rides at the Red Bull Ring

Hi Everyone,

Not that easy but a fun weekend in Spielberg and it is now over. Only one practise in the dry before the race and bad qualifying on wet made races very hard for me. My bike setup was full wet and when the track started to dry I couldn't do the best time so Grid position was 16th.

In the first race I took it easy and overtook people one by one and finished 8th. My race speed was very good, and I'm happy about that.

In the second race I had to avoid the big crash in turn 3 and I dropped to the last position. It took a while to get the feeling back but I still got many positions back and finished 10th.

I'm still happy about the two top10 finishes although I could have been on the podium with the pace I had. And special thanks Xanti and Joan, the bike was really good in the second race.

Next weekend I'll have another race with the 600 in Finland which is fun but I have to go back to school tomorrow what is not that fun. I'm now currently studying for electronics assembler witch is cool but not as cool as racing is.

I look forward and prepare for the Misano competition first, I will be ready for it.

See you, Peetu
