Blog | Gabin Planques happy with the feeling at the Sachsenring

Hi Everyone,

I'm coming back from my fourth Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup event at the Sachsenring. It was a fantastic weekend in the roller coaster.


On Thursday I arrived at the circuit with my helper and in the afternoon I went to do the track walk with Daniel Ribalta to take my first marks on the circuit.


On Friday we had two Free Practice sessions of thirty minutes and a Qualifying Practice of twenty five. In the FP1 I learnt the circuit and started making the first settings on the bike with Santi. Then I finished this FP1 18th.


In FP2 I managed to find my marks and make good chronos and I finished this FP2 10th.

For the qualification I was really excited to make good times and a good position on the grid. Then I finished this qualification 11th with a very good feeling with the bike.


In the first race of Saturday I had a good start and for the first laps I was in 6 position. After that I kept this position for 10 laps and then at the end of the race there was a red flag at 4 laps before the finish of the race and I finished the race 12th with a good feeling.


In the second race on Sunday I did a great start I was 5th on the first lap with the first group. Then I fought in this group the whole race to finish 11th with an incredible feeling with the bike.


Now, focus on next race of the Rookies cup at the Red Bull Ring.

Full gas!
