Busy weeks in August. First we had the race in Austria, then Brno and last weekend Portimao for the Moto3 Junior World Championship.
The race in Austria was a special one, the atmosphere was absolutely great. All the things around were so well organised and I really enjoyed myself in Austria. The first race I had to start from the back due a penalty from Sachsenring. It was quite a good race and I was able to fight back to the points. For the second race we change some things but not in the right way so I couldn't ride the bike as I wanted.
Directly after the Red Bull Ring we went to Brno. We had some problems with the suspension and it was a difficult weekend. For the second race we made some changes and it went better. From ninth position on the grid I finished also ninth. Finally a top-10 again, my first one since Jerez.
All the races I show I have the speed and in the lap times I make a lot of progress compare to last year. When it all comes together I can do beautiful things but till now we had some bad luck. In Misano we try again and we keep pushing and working for a good result.
In Portimão we had to ride again for the Moto3 Junior World Championship. It was a long time ago since I rode with the Honda / Dutch Racing Team.
On the test day on Thursday there was a big crash due to oil spillage including 16 riders. Luckily enough I was not one of them.
On Friday we did some good work and step by step we went faster. The race was absolutely a big disappointment, already in the first corner someone touched my rear wheel and the race was already over. Anyway, head up to Misano!
