This year just keeps getting better and better!
At the start of the month in Sachsenring for the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup I improved again taking my first top 10 position with an 8th place!
At the start of the weekend I felt excited about learning a new track but also determined to getting a good result and a good qualifying, which I have had trouble with all year.
On the Friday I learnt that in both Free Practice sessions all the riders build up slowly and then give it their all in Qualifying in the evening. As this is new to me I would do the opposite and give it my all in every session but I'd then be tired for the qualifying.
So in Germany I changed that by slowly building up my speed and knowledge of the track in FP1 and FP2 so I was ready to give it my all in qualifying.
Because of this I was able to put in my best lap of the weekend which put me in 8th position on the grid! I was so happy that I had achieved a good qualifying because all year I have struggled, but I learned from my previous mistakes and it payed off!
In Race 1 I wanted to maintain that top 10 position and I'm happy to say that I achieved my goal by finishing in 8th place. I had a brilliant race and enjoyed every minute!
Race 2 however didn't work out as well. My goal for this race was to try and stay with the front group for as long as I can. But on the first lap I tried to make an overtake which wasn't safe so I had to slow down quickly, resulting in me crashing.
The weekend after I raced as a wildcard in the British Standard Moto3 at brands hatch. It was good to get some practice on a Moto3 with close racing to keep me focused and in shape.
Last weekend I raced at Red Lodge for the Cool Fab Racing Junior Championship where I rode a mini pit bike and a CRF150.
On the Wednesday and Thursday before, there was a training school hosted by Andy Ibbot. He even taught me a few things about riding techniques which I put into practice over the weekend.
Now I look forward to Austria! See you there!
