Blog | Flo wins in IDM at Red Bull Ring

Hey guys,

Last Weekend I rode in the German Championship on the Red Bull Ring. We start the 1st and 2nd free practice sessions in nice weather and I got a good set-up. The 3rd free practice was wet and it was really slippery because there was a lot of gum on the track from the cars.

On Saturday there was again sunny weather and I got a good feeling and was in 3rd position. For the 2nd qualifying we changed something on the suspension and I could go faster. At the end I was 2nd.

The race day was really sunny and hot. In the warm-up I could go faster than in the qualifying and was 1st.

It was more than 30 degrees C and I had a good start and Luca Grünwald and I could go a little bit faster than the others. Then Philipp Oettl caught up to us and we had a great fight. Then Luca got a little bit away from us. Then I overtook Philipp and caught Luca and made the fastest lap-time of the race. Then Luca's bike struck problems and I won the race by 4 seconds ahead of 2nd.

For me it was my first win in the IDM.

I am looking forward to Misano.
