Blog | Jorge at the front again in the Sachsenring

 

Hello all,

The last weekend I was at the Sachsenring, Germany for the 9th and 10th races of 2012. For me it was a new circuit like most of the other tracks, it has been an unforgettable experience and I think it is one of the most technical circuits in the championship.

In the FP1 I felt comfortable on the track and was 9th.

In Q1 it started to rain and we used wet tires, just right after the start I went 1st on the practice for almost all the training session but in the last lap I had a small fall and I lost my position and Albert and Nicolo passed me.

On the grid I started 3rd because the 2nd qualifying was suspended because of oil on the track.

Saturday started with sunshine but then it started to rain without anyone expecting it, but all of the sudden the sun rose and the track was dry. It was incredible when I went back to track and started 6th but I fell in the second lap and at the end I finished 19th.

On Sunday I decided to not make the same mistake and got a good result, the race was very hard for the left side of my rear tire and two corners before the end I got 4th but I slid and another riders passed me.

I will try again in Brno with all my energy.

The presentation of the KTM Moto 3 on the Red Bull energy station was amazing

I'll see you in Brno,
