This weekend was a good workout on Friday. Saturday's first qualifying session I was able to snatch 6th place. In the second qualifying I could once again increase by 0.4 seconds, but fell back to eighth place. I was so happy because I was only 0.6 seconds behind in 4th.
In the warm-up on Sunday morning I had to run-in a new piston. Before the race at noon it was still raining a bit, but by the time it came for our race it was dry again.
The start was good and I was able to be 5th into the first corner. That position I could hold for one or two laps, but I could not keep the speed due to suspension problems. Then I fell back to a group, in which I was able to win many battles. At the end I was 9th and I was able to take the points for 8th because we had a guest who does not score.
Now I am concentrating fully on us all and looking forward to Assen on Wednesday to see everyone again.
