Blog | Phillip Tonn had the most exciting weekend of the year in Germany

Hi Everyone,

Sachsenring was the most exciting race weekend of the season for me.

Since I am the only German rider in the Rookies Cup I had some press appointments to do. I felt like cameras were always on my face. There was already a lot of excitement. There were plenty of visits from friends and family who wanted to see me go live.

My highlight was the driver presentation in the Karthalle with an interview on stage. That makes you feel like the big stars.

I got along well on the track. In training I felt comfortable with my KTM, everything was fine. My goal of the weekend was to reach the points.

I had a good start on Saturday and had some duels. At the moment I cannot keep up with the top field. For that I had action with Zonta .I had a fair fight with him. I crossed the finish line in 15th.

Unfortunately, there is not much to say about Sunday.

I was not really fit. I felt weak.

So I started with no good feeling. The start was not good and I came to crash then. That was very annoying and disappointing.

2 weeks after Sachsenring I drove my first Moto3 race outside the Rookies Cup in Oschersleben. I felt good and finished 2nd. I was very happy about that.

Now I'm preparing for Spielberg and I'm looking forward to riding.

See you soon,

Phillip
