Blog | Noah Dettwiler - First race and first point

Hello everyone,

Saturday was my first ever race in the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup. We had all the day free before the race because we only had the race. So I watched The MotoGP and also the other classes. One hour before the race I started to prepare myself with a little warm up and then I put on the suit. When I was sitting on my chair in the tent, I tried to cool myself because it was really hot.


When it was time to go to the Pit Lane, I was very concentrated and also nervous. I was also very happy that the first race is about to start. In the Pit Lane I just sat and waited that we can go out for the sighting lap. I was P.20 on the grid. On the grid I sat on my bike and I concentrated.


The lights turned off and I had a great start. I overtook some riders in the first corner. In the third corner one rider overtook me and I had to brake and I went back to P.20. I was fighting hard in a group of five riders. We overtook us a lot. Every corner we fought hard but fair. In the end I crossed the finish line on P.15. I had a big gap to the riders behind me. I was really happy because I improved myself, my lap time and I reached my first point. It is really nice.


Tomorrow is the second race. I will do my best again and I will try to improve myself. I will let you know tomorrow evening again how the second race was.


See you soon,
